New goal

Friday, March 02, 2012

I have decided it's time for a big change. A challenge and a test of my will power.
I have been feeling powerless against my desire for food, particularly chocolate and chips and alcohol. They make me feel better for a short time, then I always feel worse. I know I shouldn't over do it, I don't need it and I don't want to consume it.
I have the will power to stop, but no real reason to. My weight is reasonable, my health is OK. But I know I could feel better. I know I could look better.

So my new goal is an ambitious one. I plan to give up all chocolate, chips and alcohol for the month of April. (I thought about throwing coffee in there too, but I need at least one vice emoticon)

I have already started to cut back. I have stopped buying chocolate candy and bars for myself, but I still eat whatever chocolaty goodness I feel like baking. I've stopped buying chips, but hubby still does, and I'll eat them if I see them. I still run or walk on the treadmill eat weekend, but I think I'll start doing some JM workouts too. I'd like to build my muscle mass back up before summer.

I'm hoping a solid and definite goal will help see me thru this. I really want to see my weight goal by my birthday this year. I know I can do it if I just keep it in mind.
