Yeah. Cheat days are silly. Negates the entire week of dieting! I have a cheat meal on Sunday night for dinner. But it doesn't mean I eat anything either. I just allow myself a slightly bigger portion of meat or noodles or whatever. Or an extra scoop of icecream for dessert.
Anyuhow, I am doing great with my eating! It's my biggest downfall, so I am really happy about that!
My resolutions for 2010: 1-reduce/eliminate sugar and artificial sweeteners 2-work on developing a cookbook of clean eating recipes that are yummy 3-declutter my attic and closets 4-take an honest look at my clothes closet and get rid of things that don't flatter me 5-eat at least 5-7 servings of fruits and veggies/day 6-exercise at least 220 minutes/week Here's to a healthier 2010! Mary
1) Begin STS again. (started last Sunday) 2) Eat cleaner than in 2009. 3) Eat more fruits & veggies. 6-7 servings per day 4) Only 1 bad snack per day. 5) Clean out all the closets & basement, throw away or give away everything not being used. 6) Drink more water. 7) Slowly replace all the toxic chemicals in the house for organic. 8) Try new clean recipes. 9) Force my kids to eat healthier, already started. LOL! 10) Spend less time on the computer.

Good day today! I gave away all the frozen, leftover baked Holiday treats today, AND I threw out my cooking spray (God! WHAT is in that stuff!) and I did good as far as eating clean, healthy stuff. I also did my one hour of cardio circuits! (patting myself on the back)
•Exercise 6 days/week, EVERY week in 2010 •Weigh less than 155 by year-end •Buy myself cute outfits at each size change! •Run a race •Spend less time on the computer •Spend more time playing with my son
1) workout everyday 2) clean son's room and reorganize before class starts 3) cut back on sugar and artificial sugar 4) eat when hungry and make it healthy food 5) get a 6 pack! 6) be more appreciative for what I have
You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.

1. Eat On Plan (choose unprocessed foods, track my food daily, stay within calories, hit my target for protien, carbs, fat, and fiber, eat 9 servings of fruits/veggies in all colors every day, drink 3 cups of tea every day) 2. Strength Train at least 3 days week (monday, wednesday, and friday mornings) 3. Do 500 minutes of cardio per week (aiming for every day: 40 minutes in the morning and 40 minutes at lunch, with possibly 40 minutes in the evening, aiming also for 10 miles per day on the bike or stationary bike, and 2 miles of walking, 10000 steps a day) 4. Stretch every day for at least 10 minutes 5. Take time to meditate every day for at least 10 minutes 6. Declutter! Time to evaluate the stuff collected over the years and start thinning it out. Look at all the books, decide which special ones I might really want to keep, and either sell or give away the rest. Look at all the music (records, tapes and CDs) and determine which special ones to keep (or put on computer) and then either sell or give away the rest. Same thing with clothes. Same thing with cooking utensils and small appliances. Files and paperwork - decide what I really need to keep, and shred the rest. Work on the leftover yarn - make small projects until it is all used up, or give it away, or throw it away. It's time to lose weight in the clutter department.
Goal weight of 130 I gained a lot of weight over the last year or so and I'm trying (hard!) to get back to goal. And I will.
