Has it really been a year?

Saturday, January 05, 2013

Unbelieveably, I've gained more weight! I'm nearly 200-lbs, which at 5'0 is seriously serious. I bought the family an xBox for Christmas, and Biggest Loser, Your Shape Evovled, and Dance Central 2. So far I've exercised with it 3 times this week. My plan is to do BL every morning for 40-minutes, and Your Shape/Dance in the evenings for 'fun'. If I can keep it up for a month, my treat is the Nike Kinect workout or another Dance Party/Central game. I need to get my carp together and do this thing once and for all. I'm tired of being the girl who complains she's fat and never seems to shift the weight. When I lose motivation I'll watch youtube clips of Supersize vs Superskinny, ick. Scare myself back on track.

Goals for 2013:

Nutrition - Follow our family meal plan that includes 8-10 servings of fruits and vegetables per day, make good choices

Fitness - Be active everyday, even (or especially) when I don't feel like it. The only reasonable excuse is stomach flu or food poisoning. Strength train and do cardio.

Weight - lose and then maintain an 80-lb weight loss.

Family/Work Balance - no working on Saturdays! After chores, take kids to the recreation center and spend the day with them. I'm only allowed to go to work on Sundays after 12pm. I'm only allowed to stay at work until 5pm, and max 1-hr of working at home after hours. If I want extra time for work I have to workout for an equivalent number of minutes.
