a mommy, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, teacher and best friend! I am proud of all those things in life! No one can ever take any of that away from me! I am strong, independent, but also loving and caring! It is now time for me to take some time for me from all my many titles and fix what is wrong with me and that is MY WEIGHT! I need to be healthy not only for me, but also so I can be around for those many people who love me! I have run three 5ks and loved it! My goal is to run a 10k by May 2013! The other goal I have is to have shed the 50 lbs that slow me down right now by April 2013! It is going to be a tough road, but I am more than ready to fight this weight issue and I will come out a winner! :)

My Goals:
~ Lose 50lbs by April 2013
Pound LOST
~5lbs. (completed)
~ 15lbs.
~ 25lbs.
~35 lbs.
~ 40lbs.
~ RUN a 10k by May 2013

Plan of action:

1. LOGGING FOOD everyday even when I am losing is still SUPER important to losing and keeping the weight off.

2. PLAN my meals out for the week! (I did this previously and lost 30lbs.)

3. INDULGE, but know when to stop and only do it on special occasions! Every day and week is not a special occasion!

4. Post a pic of myself in a few different spots of before I was this big and now! Encouragement!

5. Set up a good reward system for meeting my different goals!

6. Last Learn to love me!!!!!!

Tomorrow I am starting a new challenge and tonight I begin with some rewards that I need to set for myself starting at this weight!

My Program:
Slow and steady wins the race! I have found going to the extreme doesn't work for me!

My plan is to follow the food plan for 2 weeks. I then want to cook my own meals for 1 week and see how I do. If I am successful then I will rotate 2 weeks of my cooking and 1 week of their plan. I hope that I can learn enough to be able to take the reins completely on my eating by August!

Personal Information:
5K's run:
10/11 ~ 39:54
11/11 ~ 33:42
3/17/12~ 36:45

My goal is to run the 3/17 5k in 2013 in 30 min or less!

"In running, it doesn't matter whether you come in first, in the middle of the pack, or last. You can say, 'I have finished.' There is a lot of satisfaction in that."

    Hello girl.

    Just wanted to send you a prayer to make sure you make it through the weekend. I know the 4th is coming up soon. So prepare yourself! No cheating. I will be holding down the fort over here. Today I already got in my walk/jog and will do a workout video later. Hey by the way have you joined in for the 5K your way challenge? Check it out. I'm doing the walk/jog speed. Have a good one. Your tough you can do this.

    Awww, thanks so much for your comments on my blogs and photos!! I sorta want to reach through the screen and give that friend of yours a whoopin'! LoL You'll wear that bikini and get that toned tummy nice and tan. Those aren't stretch marks, they're battle scars and signs of a life well lived. Own 'em! Rock 'em!

    And aren't those ADIDAS shoes great?!?! I never had to break them in - it's like they were made just for me!
