Writing this to really just kind of get my @$$ in gear. I have issues, as I've discussed before. Top of the list is simply NOT CARING ENOUGH to eat how I am supposed to be eating. As a result, my goal weight is long gone, and I just don't feel as good about myself. The areas where the weight loves to stick when I'm carrying this extra 10-15 lbs...well, it IS noticeable.

I tell myself i'm going to do "x, y, and z" about it, but then I don't. Then I think "well, clearly I must be OK with where I'm at right now, or the DRIVE I had before would be present NOW." emoticon

I've dangled the vacation carrot in front of my face.....wanting to look and feel good Labor Day weekend. But nothing is sticking. Time and time again I go back down the "bad" path to the point where I feel like i need to do something DRASTIC to drop the weight but more importantly get myself under control.


I'm going to try for a measly 30 days here to do the following:
1. blog progress/setbacks
2. drink water EVERY DAY not just weekdays.
3. Avoid alcohol like the plague emoticon emoticon
4. better balance on veggies over fruits
5. lean meats & protein galore.
7. log calories
8. Run once/week

So it's Day 1. So far so good.

My final thought is d@mn my stinking ancestors for their tendency to carry weight in their chests and arms. D@MN THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(not really. They were lovely people I'm sure, huge flapping arms and all)

    The flapping arm comment made me smile. emoticon

    Good luck on your 30 day plan. One day at a time...

    You might be more successful if you try to do LESS all at once! I looked at your list of 8 items and got exhausted just reading it! I can see why you get exhauseted trying to accomplish them all! (Granted they aren't outrageous or difficult, and I know you can achieve this... but still, small steps add up!!!)

    If it were my list I'd whittle it down to:
    2) Water, get water bottles & fill them up at the beginning of the day. Drink them till they are empty!
    3) You don't need this one, should be easy!
    6) Since Gluten makes you feel horrible, this one should be super easy!

    PS... my ancestors had HUGE BUTTS!!! And very little chests!... Think T-rex, LOL

    Yeah, super sexy, I know! emoticon
