I am woman...hear me roar!

Saturday, February 26, 2011

Ok so the scale has had very little movement the past several weeks. Maybe it's because I've been "sorta" good at things. Some days hitting my goals and other days...not so much. Nothing really off track that much but if I'm going to work at this, I need to see some successes. In 2010 I had wonderful results on the scale for about 9 months but then I started just coasting along. A little bit here and a little bit there. So I decided that this week was "Cut the S#!T week".
(we use to have them with the kids...Hubby and I would have a pow wow in the bedroom, figure out our strategy, tell ourselves we were the adults, we could do this, come out united, and tell the girls...things were going to change!).
So now I've decided that for 7 days I'm going to kick butt. And if I tell you all about it then I have witnesses. I'll be sure to keep you posted.
The plan:
Over 10,000 steps a day using my trusty pedometer.
Over 4,000 aerobic steps a day with same trusty pedometer. (I forgot to wear my pedometer to work one day months ago and thought the world was going to come to an end!)
Use the tracker and STAY WITHIN allowable calories.
And how's this for a smart idea...keep an eye on those pesky FAT GRAMS.
Drink at least 8 glasses of water.

I started this on Wednesday, that's my wacky weigh in day.
I logged in at the same weight...bummer...really wanted to loose some weight. Even a... point one! would have been appreciated. Yes, I know, I know...no gain is good too. But I want to see those numbers come down. After all I get to buy all new clothes if everything fits too big on me and that sounds like fun.

So Wednesday was great... on target
Thursday was good too...on target
Friday was ok I guess. I went over by 8 fat grams. I decided to not worry about that too much. Don't want to beat myself up about that because we all know what happens when we don't cut ourselves a break...(no excuses to turn back now)
Saturday is going great so far.
Having a few computer problems so I just said a prayer..."Dear God, don't let this computer crash now. You know how difficult it is to track my food on the phone's tiny screen".
So there you have it...3 more days to weigh in.

Have a fantastic night/day depending on what side of the globe you live on.

    Woo Hoo, so far it's going great. Weighed in this past Wed. and lost point 9. And I'm still going strong.

    Tracking my steps, my aerobic steps, Leslie Sansone videos (I treated myself and bought a new one!), glasses of water and keeping a close eye on my calories and fat grams.

    Twice since Wed. I went slightly over my fat grams but my calories have been right on target.

    I am fortunate to have a lot of support from my teams...10k, A Disney team that challenges me to walk around Epcot (imaginatively speaking)several times, Leslie Sansone and A Course in Weight Loss. I really love the journey that book is taking me on.

    Onward and upward! To infinity and beyond!!

    Just being a little silly.

    Have a great day everyone...I know I will.

    And remember..whatever you can imagine Exists!
