93 to no resolution

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

Including today, I have 93 days left in this year. 93 days to get an exercise routine in place and healthy eating habits re-established in my life so when New Year's comes around, I won't need a resolution. I will already be living the new life I want.

For the next 31days, I will:
Have at least 10 minutes of exercise a day 6/7 days and
Eat at least 3 freggies every day

On the last day of October, I will check my goals and see if anything needs a change

    Good idea. Then when the holidays come, you will have habits already in place.

    Great goals.
I've found that taking things slowly and adjusting my goals month by month has really helped me figure out what works for me. I hope it works for you too!

Motivation

Thursday, September 04, 2014

As part of my 5% Fall challenge I need to make a list of my reasons for my weight loss journey. Here goes...

Today's assignment is to list all the reasons you want to lose weight. What do you want to change? How do you want to look? How do you want to feel? What things will you be able to do in the future with a slimmer healthier body? And list all the OTHER things that you want to change!

I want to change my energy level and to be up to any activity I decide I want to do.

I want to look fit and healthy.

I want to feel proud of my appearance instead of trying to find the best clothes to disguise it.

I want to be able to walk/jog 5k's and not worry about how slow I am.

Most important: I want to seriously reduce my pain level. The extra weight makes everything hurt so much more!

The school year's coming

Friday, August 15, 2014

I have to admit, I am excited for the new school year to begin! I will be working with a new student and with that will come new challenges and new rewards. Beyond that, I am excited to have the structure re-established in my life. During the summer I wait tables which is great for getting fitness minutes but wreaks havoc on my eating. With the school schedule, I have to eat my meals at a certain time and only at those times. I have to plan and pack. It is wonderful for me in that aspect. I have been perusing Pinterest and finding lots of lunch ideas. I get stuck in a rut of the same foods and then become bored and stray from the healthy route. I hope to avoid that this year!

  


needing success in fitness and eating

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Since I am waiting tables this summer I am getting tons of fitness minutes in and easily 5-10 miles a day. I am very happy with this. My problem is I have lost all of the healthy eating habits I had developed. Now that it isn't raining every day, I am going to plan lots of grilling meals. Chicken and veggies on the grill taste great and keep the heat outside of the house :-) I cannot keep giving in and ordering pizza or burgers and fries after my shift. I have lots of healthy food at home. I can wait another hour to get home and cook.

9 more sleeps

Thursday, May 22, 2014

Until I am a married woman! It is hard to believe that the day is nearly here! I haven't done much in the way of progress towards my weight loss goals as of lately. On the other hand, I haven't gained any weight either so I call it good. Stress eating has happened but not to the levels or extent that it used to. I am slowly learning nit to eat my emotions and I am proud of that. I am doing my best to not worry too much about the details and yet still do the best I can to make the wedding as perfect as I can. It is a fine line to balance upon, lol. I have one more day of work and then I have the week before the wedding off to take care of all of those little details that need to come together!
