Here we go

I am taking myself and my health seriously now. I signed up for again to log my calories and exercise.... I know I can do this! I need to fight through my cravings.... That is when I slip up the most. I know that I am strong. I know I need to be healthy and I know how to do this! I am doing this.

I am going to lose 50 pounds by my 31st birthday, January 9th, 2011.

I want to accomplish this by taking one day at a time, Making my health a priority. I will workout daily, drink 2 nalgene bottles of water, Eat proper portion sizes, make better snacking choices, cook healthier meals. I will avoid preservatives, caffiene and try to eat only whole foods. I want to be the healthies I am able to be in my 30s and keep my family healthy as well! I CAN do this. I AM doing this!

A Trying week

I wanted so much to continue the momentum I had last week but it has been trying. We went out to dinner to applesbees. I should have have the weight watchers menu, But I didn't We got a 20 piece wings to share, then I had a salad with the crispy chicken on top... Sigh... when will I ever learn. I hopped on the Wii fit yesterday and I was up 2.5 pound from 2 days prior to that. Lets just hope that was water weight and that it didn't stay with me. I weigh in tomorrow at WW. I have not been drinking my water and I have not been logging my food. Seriously! Why can't I stick to the smallest goals? It's like the moment my life get's busy I lose track of everything else. The house gets dirty, I eat poorly, I am in need of some serious life management skills. On the bright side, I did would out yesterday and am super sore today. I did a workout on my new fitness coach Wii game. I can't believe what a good workout it was! I am off to work today for a few hours but maybe I can get another workout in tonight. I am recomitting to my 2 goals for this coming week. I need to make them habbit before I can add more! talk to you soon!

I Lost 4.6 pounds at weight watchers this past week. I needed this so bad! I am more motivated to continue eating well and getting some exercise in. I am writing down all my fods and drinking my water. This sunday I will make some new goals, Like perhaps starting to use points or really making exercise a habbit. I am so happy to be heading in the right direction now!

Still no results

"You only live once, Why not live as healthy and vibrantly as you can?" - Denise Austin

I can't believe that I am still not taking myself seriously. I can't put my finger on it. I get supermotivated one day and then the next I am cramming cookies into my mouth. It's my fault for having the cookies in the house when I know I am lacking Will power. I should send then to work with Will. He has sooo much more will power than I do. Also, my portion sizes are out of control. When something tastes good I don't want to stop eating it. Ugh... this is so much harder than I ever expected. I think I am trying to change too much too fast. I am not working on small goals to build life long healthy habbits. I need to start somewhere. I need to drink my water, every day, and log my calories. Perhaps I should just focus on there first.... Hold on while I go get my water bottle....

Ok, One bottle down, one to go!!!

I will drink 2 Nalgene bottles of water daily... That's 4 glasses per bottle. That meets the WW goal.

My other goal for this week is to logg EVERYTHING that I eat. Bites, tastes and nibbles included! I can't tell you how much I just grab something, eat it and not even stop to think about it. If I can limit the mindless eating and focus on 3 meals and 2 snacks, I think I will be well on my way to making it a healthy habbit! Hold on while I go find my tracker.....

Can't find it but I did find my motivation journal. I will keep track of my food in there for now.

I am excited to start holding myself accountable. I do not want any more weighins where I have gained weight. I just will not tolerate it anymore! I am 30 years onld tomorrow and my 30's are going to be my healthiest years yet!

I am going to stick to these 2 goals for a week and then add a new goal. I can do this!

Happy New Year!

Every year I bombard myself with new years resolutions. This year is no different, but I am trying to keep them to small changes that I know I can accomplish. Like working out 5 minutes a day, keeping a journal, reading the bible daily and going to my WW meetings every week. Above all this is the year I am going to start taking care of my body and treating it with the respect it deserves.

For breakfast this morning I made some home made banana nut oatmeal and it was really yummy. I have yet to log it into the WW website but my guess is that it was around 10 points. For lunch I am going to have a turkey sandwich on wheat and dinner either stew or soup. I am wondering if I log the whole days points ahead of time it will help me to stay on track and not splurge when I get home from work.

When Olivia wakes up from her nap we are off to the elliptical. I know I am only commiting to 5 minutes but I know once I get going, I know I can usually go a little longer. I like this no pressure resolution stuff!

Till next time!
