Making Changes

Monday, November 15, 2010

I've taken some time to reflect on some things.. And I've decided to make changes in my life. I started with my Sparkpage. lol.. But now I'm going to go deeper than that. I am hoping to start the body for life program. I feel it's something do-able for me, and that my family will benefit from. I plan on really taking my time with it, and reading the book before I jump into it. I want to be prepared, I want to know every aspect, and then I want to conquer it. Mark already agreed to do it with me, So that will be a big benefit to the process.
Although, I'm not starting the program this month, as I haven't received the book yet, I am still going to make sure I watch what I eat. My goal for the rest of the month, is to not indulge in any more fast food. This will ensure my need to plan ahead. Something that works well, when I actually execute it.
Going forward, I am dedicating Saturdays to making meal plans, and sunday's to going to the store to obtain the groceries. That gives me a day to map it, and a day to execute the plan. I will do this weekly. I plan to stick to the plan, and not stray! I will print menu planners out and Mark and I can sit and plan.

I would also like to make sure I take a daily vitamin.. This is something I hardly remember to do. I'm open to suggestions from anyone as to which vitamins I should include in my intake. As there's a whole isle dedicated to them! :)

I would also like to get my water intake back to 8+ cups.

I would also like to contact my doctor for help with quitting smoking.

Well that's all I am going to focus on for the remainder of this month! More to come!

    Go get em DB!!! I suggest getting on Chantex or Wellbutrion to help with the nicotine addiction. Also get a prenatal multivitamin, as those have the most in them and will save you some moola! Vit D3 daily and when sick with cold or flu symptoms, load up on yout Vit C and Zinc and Echinachia; as they will shorten the duration of your symptoms. Get back to the 8+ glasses daily ASAP!!! Your body will thank you for it!!! Life style changes are hard to make, so awesome that you have Mark on board to help you and that you guys are going to do it slowly and jump into it! Keep up the excellent job and attitude!!! Love Ya!!! XOXO

    That's great you are taking the bull by the horns! I think that is great that you are taking the rest of the month to get ready for BFl and that Mark is doing it with you! I found that baking up lots of chicken and throw in a vegatable on top in the oven with some Franks hot sauce is super helpful to just grab during the week. Eggs will be your best friend. YOu can do all of these and take each day at a time.

    Sounds like a great plan. Ordered my books last night!!! We can do this girl!! I've heard taking the vitamins at night sometimes works. Plus they absorb better. May be set them out where they are very visible, say like at your desk at work?
