June Goals--A Little Long

Wednesday, June 01, 2011

So first an update on the weekend. Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial start of summer sitting by the lake...even though it was so frickin cold one night I had to dress like it was winter-and then 90 two days later. I wish MN would make up it's mind.

Anyway, my workouts went pretty awesome. When I found out that my brother was getting married, I found a calender and started marking what workouts I would have with highlighters adding cardio and then different ST exercises. Examples, MWF is abs and arms, TThSat legs and butt. Turns out this was a pretty awesome plan.

You see, my bad eating choices started on Friday night when the amazing homemade pizza was brought in the house. I was doing the whole... well if you eat an apple and just have one piece thing and ended up not having the apple and pigging out. Then on Saturday, I had leftovers. My sister made 2 crazy chocolate cakes. For people that don't know what crazy chocolate cake is, I'm pretty sure you can gain ten pounds just by looking at it across a large room. Do I really need to tell you what happened?

Sunday was a little better, although I am ashamed to say that my breakfast was actually a piece of cake with left over pizza for lunch AGAIN. I woke up on Monday feeling like crap. I was pretty sure that I had gained 20 pounds over night.

Monday was a little better, and I forced myself to see how much I had gained. 3 pounds this weekend. I had hit my goal weight and then added 3 pounds. I was so mad at myself. I do this EVERY month. I hit my goal weight, then the last week, I gain 2-3 pounds and spend the next two weeks making up for what I shouldn't have done in the first place.

Then I made PB cookies. Because apparently, I needed those staring me in the face every time I entered the kitchen. You know how I was bragging about making chocolate chip cookies a few weeks back and only having 2? Yeah, that didn't happen yesterday. I didn't even keep track.

This whole time, though, I've been exercising, although on Sunday, I could only force my self on the treadmill for 15 minutes. Otherwise, I had at least kept up with that. But yesterday, after eating those cookies, I decided I had no energy and refused to work out. But around 8 PM, I walked into my room and saw the calender that I had been marking off each day after my workout. I couldn't stand to not be able to cross that one last day off, so I got on the treadmill and added kickboxing after, ate a healthy supper and only had strawberries for a snack. I crossed off that workout and decided to kick butt in June.

So here I am. I had an awesome workout today, left the cookies alone, and have had a clean diet. I am happy to say, I only have 1.5 pounds to lose to get to my goal weight and move on, because I somehow managed to lose almost 2 pounds overnight. Here are my June goals:

emoticon Keep my hands out of that dang cookie jar. Seriously. I'm not making cookies for anyone this month, and I will not eat pizza. None.

emoticon Keep on the all water no pop goal this week (not all was lost last week, I did manage to stop drinking pop altogether).

emoticon Get down to 205-210 by the end of the month.

emoticon Eat healthy when I go down to Wood Lake to visit my mom's grave on June 6th, and when I go to my cousin's grad party on June 26th in SLP.

emoticon Make amends with my grandmother and don't let her walk all over me. Easier said than done. Especially about guys.

Oh, and I turn 30 on July 24th. emoticon
I don't know if it is possible, but I would love to start my 30's in the 100s. Seriously, I don't care if it is 199.8, I would love to see it. I'm going to a Stingers game (baseball)that night, and I am praying my sister isn't trying to pull anything!

So there you go. My month of June. I hope everyone has started the month off right!
