No long drawn-out entry here, but after a wasted March of making excuses and showing a slight gain of weight (instead of losing 6 lbs - see right side of my home page), I've opted to make a quick list of what is going on this month:
Lose 8 lbs. And mean it this time.
Exercise plan: walk dog daily, do yard work, do the 40 min "Insanity" workouts, stretch.
Eating plan: 1200 - 1400 calories daily, with all veggies and water to start the streak over.
3 birthday celebrations (one of them - my daughter turns 16!)
1 Easter celebration
Baseball practices and games, school musical, drivers' ed, possible job for my daughter
Possible work travel at least once if not twice
Building anxiety at the end of the month due to helping Mom move, seeing my Dad, and bringing some furniture and other things to our house (Mom lives 2.5 hrs away). This also means moving things around my house, getting rid of stuff...all welcome, so I just need to deal with this stress (both good and bad stress) by doing something other than eating.
The challenge is now with my brother and my husband to lose 8 pounds this month. The winner gets a $10 iTunes credit from the 1st runner up. Now that hubby has entered the challenge, I'm not sure how we'll split up the goodies. Either way, we all win. Wanting that ticker to keep moving into bigger weight-loss numbers...
