Sunshine is contagious.. so I am going to share my sunny day with you! :)
Today, I seem to be having a great day!
* Woke up at 7:30 am before my alarm going off and dozed in and out until 8:30. Ah! :)
* Weighed myself and dropped 2#! Mind you, most of that was water retention from eating alot of sodium items in the past few days.. But, hey, I will take it!
* I looked mighty cute in my new shirt and jeans today! ;)
* I was late for class but went anyhow. Participated like 3x when I usually don't at all.
* Finished my homework under the time I allotted for it.
* Had delicious Chicken Alfredo for lunch! YUM!
* My mom told me I got my Passport in the mail today.. Eeeeek!!
..all this before 1:30 pm!
Plans for the rest of the day..
* Checkbook so I can bring my computer in later this week.
* Go to campus early - maybe work on some homework before class.
* Class @ 2:30 pm
* Work out
* Snack - I am thinking yogurt and string cheese!
* Self-Defense Class
* Home and relax OR or some homework!

As promised today I reset my ticker to 216.8.. this means I gained 3# over the weekend. It is time I brush myself off and start working at it again. Honestly, it was really nice to not focus on every calorie and just relax even though I gained 3#.. It is okay..
As for my goal to workout in the morning.. well, it didn't happen. I went to bed early and was all revved up to work out in the morning.. than it seemed like it all floated away when I was in cozy bed..
Since I really want to make this work, I am asking you.. do you have any ideas to help me get motivated out of bed?

Today, I really wanted to commit to my goals this week so I re-did my motivational board and I had ALOT of fun doing so! By the way, this is my third time re-doing it since I have started.. Apparently, I re-vamp it every two months!
SPOTLIGHTANGEL asked me to put up a picture so here it is! It is great sharing this with you of you guys! I hope you guys can see it clearly! I took pictures with my cell phone..because my camera broke a few months back!
The words around my poster are things that I want to accomplish such running a 1/2 marathon, being strong or being active.
There are quotes on the sides in the green and yellow areas.
In the pink and blue areas, are my everyday goals such as attending Group X Classes, morning workouts or even drinking 100 oz of water daily. The idea will be to put a sticker on the board every time I accomplish something.. maybe I will put up a picture when it is all done! HOW EXCITING would that be!!!

On Friday, I was at 212 and feeling okay about losing weight. I wasn't too excited about exercise and knew I was getting bored with it. Than, I went to my parents where it is impossible to keep track of calories and I am sure I have gained weight..
...so I decided to start over. Whatever weight I am at tomorrow morning, I am going to punch that into my ticker and try again. I figure it is better to take two steps forward, and one step backward than to accept that I am going to be "fat" and give up. No, I can do this - if it is the last thing I do, lol!
So.. this week I am going to try...
* Joining Group X Classes
* Lose 2# this week, at most.
* Work out in the morning
* Strength train 2x
As I was thinking of a 5th goal for this week, I decided not to.. I am going to try to not overwhelm myself. They may seem simple but they are actually going to be very hard for me especially the first and third one. *sigh* Here I go!
Have a great week!

Today, I had my WL Challenge Weigh-in and it said I lost 2# while my scale said 3# this week. This really bummed me out. I am trying to be sensible about this.
Things I keep repeating to myself.. when I am trying to give myself a pep talk.
*Be the turtle in this race. Slow and easy. No one will expect it. If I keep at 2# a week, I should be able to lose 12% Body Mass by March 10 and win 1st place.
*Those people that lost 11# in a week will plateau faster.
*The slower you take it off, the slower it comes back. (By the way, this weight I am losing is not coming back!)
*The last week you will wear lighter clothes so it is like having 0.5-1# of reserved weight loss until the end.
*Change up your exercise and you will not plateau..
*You can and will do this.
For some reason, this pep talk is just not working this time. So, now I turn the floor to you.. I am hoping for some motivation, cheering or even a cyber hug. Right now, I think I could just cry in frustration but I am trying to keep a positive attitude and continue on.. will you help me?
