Fall is in the Air
Saturday, September 15, 2007
Summer is almost over and fall is upon us. Thank goodness. I love summer but fall and spring are my favorite seasons (other than allergies!!).
Besides that, I've really gotten slack over the summer with my eating. My biggest problem in the summer is that I don't like to cook and I get tired of salads. I really don't like to even eat a meal which is not good. I would rather just snack which is REALLY bad. So with fall so near, I will be ready to start over and start losing again. The only bad part is that the holidays are just around the corner.
With all that being said, it is time to set some serious but realistic goals for myself. Along with that, some rewards for reaching those goals. I think 5 pounds a month is realistic and should be fairly easy to reach but would I really be challenging myself!!!! Six pounds a month would only be one and half pounds a week and should be doable but again am I really challenging myself.
My biggest problem is that I usually try to leave myself some play room in my goals and I don't want to do that this time. I want to get serious. Okay, this is what I'm going to do..... I'm going to shoot for 2 pounds a week, 25 pounds by January 1, 2008. That would put me at 205 pounds. That is behind what I had planned for myself at the beginning of this year but I haven't been below 230 in almost 10 years. So it is about time... Don't you think?
Okay, for rewards: 10 pounds - pedicure; 15 pounds - manicure (never had one); 20 pounds - I'll have to think about this one; and the big one - 25 POUNDS - new clothes........ I'll need them by then. I would love to reach 210 by December 8. That is my birthday and what better gift could I give myself but that is really pushing it but not impossible. All things are possible with God!
Please, please, please, someone help hold me accountable with this. I CAN NOT do this alone. I need everyone to help me. With my SP friends I can and will reach my goal.
Enough said. Time to get started. Today is a good a day as any to start!!! Don't you think....
I love you Lord. Thank you for today!
