A New Year, A New Idea
Thursday, January 02, 2014
So I have been living my new life for over 2 months now. The holidays are over and it is time to get back to business. Since I get home right in time to start supper I haven't been spending a lot of time sparking. The lightbulb finally came on! I am on a computer on my lunch break so why not get on here to log my food and make a blog entry.
I found an idea on pinterest (I think) to make a visual reminder of the weight I want to lose. I have two glasses (or vases), with aquarium rocks to mark the pounds I want to lose and the pounds I have lost. One is labeled "Pounds Lost" and the other is labeled "Pounds to Lose." Then with each pound a rock is moved from one glass to the other. It is right on my bathroom sink so I look at it several times a day. Good reminder and it doesn't seem so bad when it's broken down like that. Plus I only put my short term goal in the glass. My cousin's wedding is May 31st and I want to be down for that.
I haven't been sleeping because my brain doesn't shut off and I have been focusing on getting pregnant, or not getting pregnant. Starting now I am back focusing on getting healthy as a way to help my body get ready for a baby. I don't care how tired I am when I get home, I need to exercise instead of sit on my behind!
