I have been doing pretty good over the holidays..sticking to eating a certain amount of calories a day..this is new to me as I usually gain so much weight this time of year. But since November I have been really focusing on eating right and I am happy to say that I am still sticking with it. My plan is to get in the shape I want to be in before I turn 40 (which is almost a yr from now). I love the weight that I am at now and if I stayed at this weight it wouldnt' bother me...my goal is to flatten my stomach!! That is a real issue for me and I have decided this year I am going to focus on eating more healthy foods and focus on work outs that will benefit me in the sense that I will lose the belly fat and be able to tone my abs..I know it will be hard, but I also know that it is so worth it! I know that this is a personal goal for me, while I have never been really heavy (except when I was pregnant) so I don't have as many issues as others may...I still find it very hard for me on a daily basis and know that I have to think of the BIG PICTURE or I will fall off the wagon. I have had some days where I did eat too much dessert at a party or get together...but I told myself to eat better/healthier the next day and to keep doing that and that has really helped. I weight myself on a daily basis which I also find helps me stay in check with where I want to be. It may not be for everyone, but it does work for me!
I am hoping that I will be able to stay focused in 2011!!!!
