I have decided that even though I don't celebrate new years, I AM going to make measurable goals for this year.
so this is what I decided.
*I want to make easy to put together snacks that I can reach for, instead of reaching for easy junk for a snack
* I want to start cooking more than one portion of meals to cook.
* I want to start baking my own bread (of course I'm gonna need a bread machine first)
* I want to weigh 199 pounds before 2014. (i'm starting at 226)
* I want to balance my exercise between belly dancing and core work and rehabilitative exercises.
**** One goal I have thats not exactly specific or measurable, mostly cuz I don't know how to reword it is ~ I want to improve my relationship with food. I know I am beautiful even with hirsutism, loose skin all over my body, spider veins and stretch marks. I'm not insecure. i don't look in the mirror and hate myself. But out of habit I reach for carbs when I don't need that JUNK. I reach for bad foods with bad relationships I can't get rid off and still trying to put a handle on it. I really want to improve my relationship/addiction/craving for carbs. part of it is lazy, and part of it is going to be an ongoing life journey.
I am trying to not think of myself being bigger as "chronic weight problem" which is what some of my relatives think of it as, but I know - one step at a time.
