May Is My Month!!!

Saturday, May 01, 2010

I am claiming May. I am taking charge of it to step up my "A" game to an "A+" game!!! I feel empowered and motivated to meet my goals!

Currently I weigh 192 lbs. I gained two pounds back in the last few days of April which kept me from weighing in at 190! I cheated twice those days. Normally I reward myself with "cheat meals" but as I see they are really hurting my progress an making me angry at myself at times.

No More Cheat Meals for 31 days. I'm trying to come up with a reward for completing this without picking another "cheat meal". So, I'm open to any slightly inexpensive suggestions....

I am taking FULL advantage of having 14 of the next 16 days without any classes. If you need to know where to find me... It'll be @ the YMCA and at the stove cooking healthy meals.

I want to clean myself over the next 16 days. Mind. Body. Spirit. Closet. Car. Attic. All of it needs a fresh start before Summer Semester starts so I can feel I've gotten a head start on a hard and busy semester.

There are 19 days until I weigh in at my Doctor's office. I weighed in at 208 in February at my last visit! I'm at 192 right now! That is already a 16 pound difference! Let's see what I can do between now and then to make them say HOW? and WOW!

My Team Goal is to Lose: 10 lbs. My Personal Goal is to Lose: 13 lbs.

The Key is Determination and Motivation! Have a Great May guys!

Make the Best of it you can, Own it!

    How's the plan going of cleaning mind, body, car? :)

    Just wanted to re-read this blog, I remembered how awesome it was and needed the pick-me-up :)

    emoticon It's great that you've realized a trigger that makes you feel craptastic. Maybe instead of a whole meal you can reward yourself with a small bite. I keep a stash of Hershey's Special Dark Nuggets w/almonds. Once or twice a week I have one. I don't really chew it. I just savor it by letting it melt slowly in my mouth. It really makes it seem as if I'm getting more than one. Before it would have been nothing for me to eat four or five at a time.

    You could also try a cup of strawberries with a few tablespoons of sugar free cool-whip. Sweet and low in calories. I also add mint extract to the cool-whip and freeze it. It tastes like mint ice cream when I'm having a really bad sweet tooth moment.

    Just remember that you can do this! We are all here to support you along the way!

    Go you!!! That's an awesome attitude to start the month!!!!

    I agree with the cheat meals thing. I usually let myself have something on Saturdays after weigh in that I'm not supposed to have, but I think it's doing more harm than good.

    For rewards, what about getting yourself a healthy cookbook? Or a CD (maybe with workout tunes?)? New workout outfit?

    Keep up the awesome attitude!!!

    Wow! You should be a motivation speaker! I thought I was happy for May to finally be here as I'm going to Vegas on the 9th, but I think you have me beat. Happy May to you!
