Well...I ate 4 double stuffed Oreos last night before bed and the night before that so I guess my goals are going turtle slow right now. Shame on me, but they taste soooo good!
Anyway, my goals are to stop with the sugary snacks...I mostly eat Godiva extra dark chocolate truffles (4 a day - not sure why I'm craving the sugar right now, I need to stay out of the mall!!!) and to burn body fat (which is going pretty well). I have no weight to lose, but I have fat to lose so that's my goal and I hope to reach this goal by my Solstice in Times Square (June 21, 2012). It will happen, but I'm not so sure about this sugar habit I got going.
For the record, I no longer eat M&Ms because I'm addicted to Godiva...once you go Godiva you ditch Mars. Not sure if that's a good thing either. Ha!

You have 3 choices. Give up Give in Give it your all...
My long term goal is to weigh 125 and to have lost this poochy tummy by eliminating grains from about 95% of my diet and by doing resistance exercise like pushups and squats and a some sprints every day. I'm already part way there; my "fatty" skirts are slipping down towards my hips and I've lost 8 pounds from my high of 139. These pounds are really, really hard to lose!
Short term goal is to lose 3 more of these pounds by Oct. 1.
Even shorter term goal is to get through this day without faltering on my health, diet and exercise plan. I really like the one-day-at-a-time mindset. It goes along with "Just do it!". So, my extremely short term goal is this strong message to "just do it"...right now.
I do look forward to going to bed KNOWING that I JUST DID IT!...a whole string of good choices throughout the day.
Making every day count
Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when itís a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, theyíre terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
