September Challenge Day 2.

Thursday, September 06, 2012

Yesterday went rather well!

Calories - 1,672

I was a little over my range for calories, but I am ok with it; I worked a hard shift and ate a non-planned snack of Chex Mix, which had 210 calories, and I enjoyed it. It was worth it to me. I have been fasting since 7:00 pm last night or a physical this morning. I am looking forward to eating a bagel and some fruit for breakfast, I am starving!

I am off work and school today, so a walk is definitely in order. I will walk for at least 20 minutes today, rain or shine.

    Sounds like you have this down...it's amazing how something "little" can put what seems like a lot of extra calories...Like you said, don't sweat it as it's so minimal and you probably burnt it off fasting...LOL

Keeps it up!!

September Challenge Day 1.

Wednesday, September 05, 2012

Calories - 1,764

I am not disappointed with that, because I resisted a lot of temptation yesterday and ate pretty healthfully. Not too bad for emoticon I did make a FEW choices that were less than stellar, but I'm not mad at myself. I think I need to love myself a little more, and stop dwelling on negatives. I am happy about small progress, and I ate two servings of broccoli at dinner, which pleases me. I don't really like vegetables, but it was cooked just right and I wanted to eat something green.

Other than that, today was stressful. Nursing school is kicking my butt! I am a stressed basket case. Other than that, I will be going to work tonight. This time, I'm bringing almonds or a snack for after dinner. Can't be munching away too much at work!

Hope you all had a glorious day!

"Hot for Halloween."

Tuesday, September 04, 2012

Today is the first official day of the September challenge, and I am so ready to start. I was trying to start all weekend, but it isn't a great idea for me to start anything on a weekend!

Today I go back to school to face a host of work to do, and work tonight. However, I am hoping these two things will help me stay strong today. I really want to do this. I am committed to doing it. I am going to eat healthier, less fat, and work out more. I want to be hot by Halloween! emoticon

Goals for Halloween

Halloween is a silly day to end my short-term goal, but I am silly, so it's fitting! It is exactly 8 weeks and 1 day away.

emoticon My goal weight for this challenge is 16 lb. less than I weigh now. And, drumroll please, I weighed in today at 153.0. That makes my goal weight 137.0 lb.
emoticon Eat healthier. I am talking vegetables, people! I like healthy foods, so this shouldn't be a big problem.
emoticon Exercise more. I am planning to walk at least 5 out of 7 days a week, even if it's only for 20 minutes.I am going for a walk right now!

That's it. No strict plan, just aim for overall eating less and making better choices. I think this liberal approach is just what I need. Something with wiggle room, not for failure, but for life!

Wish me luck!

This is me, around my goal weight for this challenge:

And this is me now ( as of the Iowa trip):

I can see a big difference in my face especially. My body is a lot curvier as well. I weighed about 20 lb. less than I do now in that first picture. If I could get back there, I would be happy! I just want to change. I am tired of this battle.

And! Something nice to start thinking about fall...
