245 in 5

Thursday, March 07, 2013

Thursday, logging in and blogging 3 days in a row. A record for me recently. I logged in, exercised and recorded what I plan to eat today AND I am drinking my water.

I got a fairly decent night's sleep last night, except for a couple bathroom drips (LOL! I mean TRIPS) from all the water I am drinking!

I have a really painful foot this morning, I assume from pushing myself on my exercise bike yesterday and then being on my feet too at work. I did not want to get on the bike today but I did. We shall see if that was a mistake or not. I did 46 minutes and I will work from 2-9 tonight, all of it on my feet.

I have a goal in mind. When I have been hungry the last couple of days I chant it in my head. 245 in 5! Just 245 in 5! Although my ultimate goal is 199 (which seems SO far away always, since I began at about 415) mini (lol) goal is 245 in 5 months.

The county fair is in a little over 5 months. That's big around here. That's when my husband and I take pretty much the whole week off and we are with family and friends.

Even though I have lost and kept off about 85 pounds, you cant really SEE a big difference, at least I have not had many people comment on my loss. I want people to notice, I want to be proud, I want to FEEL proud.

So according to spark people 245 in 5 IS attainable because it allowed me to set that as a goal.

I feel motivated today still, that's exciting!

    OMG! You epitomize success! Way to GO! emoticon

    What kind of events do you particiapte in at the fair? Our local livestock fair is big around here. My daughter raised a feeder steer about 5-6 years running. Those were fun days! She's a momma herself now! Keep up the work and the chanting!

    I'm going to write my own chant!

    You'll get a lot closer to 245 by working at it than not.

    Here's to great success! emoticon (Clinking water glasses)
