the 46- fifteen! woo-hoo!

Thursday, August 29, 2013

i remember going to college, and everyone warned me about the "freshman-15"... emoticon (insert scarey, creepy music here) da, da, DA!!! that is where you go off to college and GAIN 15 pounds over your freshman year.

well, today, i am making a NEW motivator!!!! the "46- FIFTEEN"! woo-hoo! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

wait... what? what is the "46-FIFTEEN" you say? well, i am so glad you asked! emoticon

the "46-FIFTEEN" is my new motivator! emoticon it is because i am gonna be 46 years young in 10 days! emoticon . okay, well that explains the number 46 you say... but what about the "FIFTEEN"??? well, that is how much weight i will get rid of (see? i didn't say lose, since i don't EVER want to "find" them again!) by October 6th, little over a month... (which is when me and my hubby celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary!) emoticon

i know, i know, this is where you are saying, "tammy, that is A LOT of weight to lose in a month, don't set yourself up for failure..." i know, i get it... it is a goal, and i am gonna do my darnest to meet it.

i am gonna try new things, hopefully, they will help...

#1 first, i have been doing sparkpeople for about 3 months consistently emoticon , and the past two months i haven't lost ANYTHING, so i figure i am due to have a BIG drop this coming month.

#2 i have 10 days off from work, so i can, focus on this and jump start myself, for the first 10 days! emoticon

#3 my spark buddies have told me that i should be watching my sodium emoticon (which could be hindering my weight loss), which i haven't in the past, and after actually SEEING what was recorded on sparks, wow! i have a LOT of sodium consumption! emoticon

#4 continue to work out, (cardio emoticon , strength emoticon and yoga emoticon ), but strive for intensity and good form

#5 continue "wogging" emoticon emoticon emoticon (walking/jogging), but work on doing longer distances, more time jogging, increasing the challenge.

#6 work on staying towards the lower end of my sparkpeople calorie, carbs ranges... and just make healthier food choices emoticon emoticon emoticon

#7 drink MORE water. emoticon

and i am keeping my mantra POSITIVE... they always say, don't say negative things like "i HAVE TO LOSE 15 pounds..." i am saying, "i will be 15 pounds LIGHTER than i am now!"

i don't know if i will make it, but i am CERTAINLY gonna fight the good fight, and give it all i can. i have even written the number "15" on my arms and hands to remind me! (shhhh, don't tell my kids, i get after them when they write on themselves, LOL!) emoticon

so here's to the "46-FIFTEEN"!!!!!!!

emoticon emoticon

i am KISSING emoticon those 15 pounds GOOD-BYE! emoticon

    Fight for it! That is what I tell myself when I am at the end of the workout and getting tired! You can do it, maybe not all of it, but fight for it as hard as you can and do your best and whatever you lose, then awesome for you!
You can do it!

    emoticon emoticon emoticon And best of all lots of emoticon ! Btw, they're right about the sodium intake. By cutting down mine, when I joined SP, I could totally feel the difference with my body. You'll be able to tell the difference too after a few days. Good Luck!
