A Goal to Reach by Spring

Today is day 9 of my streak!

I've decided to give myself a new mini goal! The first day of Spring (my favorite season) is 72 days away, so I'm choosing a goal that I want to reach by that time. I have a really cute Curves t shirt that is a size L, which is the size I wear now in t shirts. But this shirt seems to run small. I can get it on but its way too tight. So my goal is for it to fit me perfectly by the first day of Spring!

I actually won this shirt in a drawing back in 2008, when I was still a member of Curves, and I've never been able to wear it. Its just been hanging in the spare bedroom all this time, but I am determined to fit into it by the first day of Spring...even though I no longer go to Curves.

In order to reach this goal, I am going to keep doing what I've been doing...eating between 1200 and 1500 calories a day....REAL food, eliminating processed food as much as possible....and getting at least an hour of exercise a day. I've been doing Wii Zumba every morning and I'm getting a little better although I still look absolutely ridiculous, lol. In the afternoon, I do my strength training with My Fitness Coach for Wii, and in the evening I do DDP Yoga. I will also workout during TV commercials while watching the Biggest Loser this season! I have my aerobic step and I will do step ups during every commercial break. So wish me luck on fitting into that shirt by the first day of Spring!

Oh, a few days ago I blogged about my NSV's (non-scale victories) of 2012, but I forgot some so I will add them here.

I don't have to sit down to put my pants on. That might not seem like a big deal, but it is to me! I can put my pants on while standing up!

My purse strap fits over my shoulder now...even with my winter coat on!

When I sit on the couch, the cushions don't sink way down anymore. It feels like I'm sitting ON the couch now, not IN the couch. And I can get up from the couch easily, without having to hoist myself up.

I can get down on the floor for my workouts, and get back up again without having to pull myself up on the furniture.

I can easily reach to trim my toenails. (I used to have to do all kinds of straining and contortions to do that.)

The sides of the lawn chair don't squeeze my hips anymore.

I need to get smaller bras! Yes, thats a non-scale victory too!

Okay...there are 72 days until Spring! What goal would you like to reach by then?
