Week 1: Day 2
Sunday, January 27, 2013
So it's Sunday which means weigh in day! I weigh 153. I am not surprised by this. I had not done anything to lose weight since the last time I weighed in. Plus the party sabotaged me pretty badly.. I have never been over 153 though so I'm glad I wasn't 154 or anything. But I hope next week when I get on the scale I will be in the 140's and never see the 150's again until I get pregnant!
My goal for next Sunday is 150. I think this is achievable because I have gone from 153 to 148 in a week before. Plus, I see all of the little extra food that I eat that I could easily cut out because I'm just picking. By stopping to graze and changing my portions, this change will easily come.
I plan on getting on the treadmill for 30 minutes 6 days this week. Unfortunately I'm still having knee troubles so I can't run.. but I will also do yoga for three days. And oh yeah, the 11 hours of dance I have each week :)
Today I was great! I had a lot of will power when it came to the food that my dad offers me throughout the day (for instance today: his extra smoothie, fig newtons, pizza...) I love him but sometimes I think he is detrimental to my goals. He knows I have a sweet tooth so he always brings home cookies and such from his work events. I am in charge of what I am eating though, so I can't blame anyone else.
My goals for tomorrow are to be extremely conscious of everything I am eating because every moment is a choice. I won't eat after dance which ends at nine. I'll make a healthy choice when I go out to dinner. Finally, I will stop saying "I hope to" or "I want" or "I'm planning to" or "I'm trying" and start saying "I will" and "I am".
Tomorrow is the first day of the new semester at school! New semester for a new me. How fitting. Keep smiling everyone.
