Build A Bridge And Get Over It...

Saturday, September 01, 2012

This week I had some emotional setbacks but it's time to do as I said a bridge and get over it!

While my plans went slightly awry for my first week, I am not giving up yet. I finally started my shakes on Thursday. I had 2 that day. I have put together a binder with a quote and a picture Emma drew in the the clear sleeve on the front cover. I started putting pen to paper a little last night. I need to review my goals daily and I can't do that if I don't have a written plan! So while writing about my goal to lose 50lbs by Christmas, I decided that I am going to aim for at least one shake a day. I think that it will be my breakfast shake to get me on the right path. I am hoping that I can eat an actual healthy balanced meal for dinner. Then I won't feel like I'm depriving myself of anything. I felt that way last night. And I'm the one who has to be able to work/follow whatever POA (Plan Of Action) I decide on.

One of the things I've realized this week, through talking with friends virtually or on the phone, is that I definitely need to have less tv and more family time in my household. We just spend too much time as a family in front of some kind of electronic device-computer, tv, iPad, etc. So hopefully we can change that-especially since Emma goes back to school on Tuesday (FIRST GRADE!!!). If I truly want to be a good example to my daughter, than it's time to get to work and start making some changes for the positive.

I hope to get some cleaning & rearranging of our little apartment done this weekend. TOO MUCH CLUTTER. One of the things I want to be able to do is have more people over. Life is short and we must LIVE!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

    I am trying shakes for breakfast too. If I don't have something before I leave the house, it just starts me off on the wrong foot for the rest of the day.
