REAL good, REAL bad, and REAL me!

Thursday, August 12, 2010

I have been doing this for a good while now, ups and downs it is a REAL ride!
I still am at 160lbs, I do want to reach my goal of 140 this year. I get exercise everyday, but I still love food a bit too much! It seems like I will do great and then I slip. Like something takes me out of my routine and I lose it... I need to be more REAL and accountable for myself. I think I blame my over eating on the situation around me, instead of planing ..Planing is the key ...have a plan then have a plan B. SO I am going to start writing it out get back to basics! Baxk to writing Menus and plugging in the workouts to see where I am falling short. BUT as I said I am being REAL and I know it is the food! Ever since I stopped smoking I have now FULL/ stop button.. Like I would always want to finish with the cig and well I still haven't for a good thing to stop myself with ... dessert just makes it worse lol?? ..?? anyone want to give a few suggestions?
I was surprised to see I was motivator of the day(MOD) was a reminded to get my head back in it! I have been doing great for 2 weeks now and with school starting back up and kids getting back to a routine it will be easier to get into one myself! I am still VERY PROUD of myself for keeping it off and keeping up the exercise BUT I want to realize my goal I want to complete this...I want to be DONE!!

Thanks everyone for all the comments on my page and I am always here! NEVER GIVE UP ...remember a slip up is not a failure it is a reminder!!!
Peace and Love

    In your own words: a slip up is not a failure it's a reminder.
    No matter what you are well able to get to your goal weight by Dec 31, 2010. Take it one day at a time and see yourself at the goal weight. Think inside what you really want and what is the purpose of food. To fuel our bodies. Keep those items out of your house that cause you to eat opposite what you should eat. This plan should be for the entire household. God bless you and you can do this. I'm banking on being at my goal also by the end of the year and I have much more to lose. But WE can do this!

    Sounds like you're making great strides toward your goal! Just keep on making good choices. (Congrats on stopping smoking!)

    How about a cup of green tea for dessert. (I think I can hear the crowd booing now...).

    Yep, I've been doing this for two years now and I will never, ever give up. I don't care how long it takes I am determined to be as healthy and as fit as I can be. Good Luck with your goals this year!
