A New Year, a New Resolution, A New Goal!

Monday, January 02, 2012

Yep - I am now RECOMMITTED to reaching my goal! I have a few friends who have decided to join in the journey to weight loss and living healthy! Ever since my phone consult on December 19th with a wonderful doctor, I've been thinking more positive about 2012!

It is only ME who can determine if I reach my goals! And the only way that will happen is when I think POSITIVE and do what I know is GOOD for me! The doc told me on the phone that the slightest negative thought can deter reaching a goal. So I'm thinking positive!

I already started organizing the house. Got the bathroom and the Master Bedroom done. Next is the kitchen. I have also started organizing the finances! Spoke with the daughter and she has agreed to save us $60 a month, to down grade the cell phones from smart phones to basic phones.

Next is ME! My Christmas gift from the hubby was my TURBO FIRE!!!!

I watched Chelene's Turn Up the Fire video and read all her information on the program. I have also got a free membership to to track my results. I also plan to track them here... so I have recommitted myself to get back into tracking my food, drinking my water, and exercising. It's gonna be a challenge to fit it in between now and March (bowling season) but I will do it!

So I started today out with weighing and measuring myself. Jon also did some pictures of me. I have to admit, I'm not happy with today's numbers. But I have to think positive and keep saying that this is my new starting point with Turbo Fire! So here are the numbers compared to August 2011 (the last time I measured)...

BMI: 27.8 (+1.6)
Body Fat %: 27.26% (+.35%)
Weight: 194.5 (+17.5lbs)
Neck: 14 (+.5in)
Chest: 36.5 (+1.5in)
Waist: 37 (+3.5in)
Hips: 43 (+2in)

Right Calf: 15 (-0-)
Right Thigh: 24.5 (+1in) / Right Mid-Thigh: 20.5 (+1in)
Right Upper Arm: 12.5 (+1in) / Right Fore Arm: 10.5 (+.5in)
Right Wrist: 6.5 (-0-)

Left Calf: 15 (-0-)
Left Thigh: 25 (+1.5in) / Left Mid-Thigh: 20 (-0-)
Left Upper Arm: 12.5 (+1in) / Left Fore Arm: 10.5 (+.5in)
Left Wrist: 6.5 (-0-)

My "before" Turbo Fire front and side views (not proud - but best way to get a visual)

Hip is feeling a little better... going to ease into the routine. Hoping by March I can start some running again. The Glucosamine is helping, and I am taking my Super Omega 3-6-9 and the B-Complex. I'm ready to keep going! So look forward to my number each month! I'm BAAAAAAAACCCCCCKKKKKKK!
