I have 24 days till Sandy's Bridal Shower and I need to make some commitments and I need to stick to these commitments. I am almost afraid to write them down, but here goes....
I WILL NOT EAT SUGAR until the shower and I will cut back on the carbs until then also!!
I WILL EXERCISE 6 DAYS OUT OF THE WEEK, IF NOT 7. 1 Hour PER DAY
My dinners will consist of barbecue meat with salad and/or veggies.
omg, if I can just do one entire great week, I will do good....I GOTTA DO THIS!!!!!!

I can't believe that a month has almost gone by. Shame on me!!! I am still walking everyday, but the eating department needs a big improvement.
I will be going dress shopping on May 18, and my goal is to drop 15 pounds by then and then another 5 -10 by the wedding. I can do this, if I put my mind to it and stop deviating from a healthy diet.
My last weigh in here was 154. I now weigh 157. It's time to see the numbers go down and I especially MUST BE UNDER 150!!!
Here we go again...

We have been walking every single night!!! We have been eating right, every single night!! SO FAR, SO GOOD!!
Tuesday, March 1, 2011
The good thing is that everyday, every meal is a new beginning...so I just start again. I will begin to blog again!!! I have already started to walk on a daily basis, so that is the part that I am doing well on!!! Something is better than nothing!!!
March is going to be a VERY, VERY GOOD MONTH!!!

Even though Herman is always starving when I get home, I need to get him used to just walking when I first get home. Once I am inside cooking and cleaning, I lose interest in walking, because I think I have too much to do.
I have to make changes and I must do them now,. It is so important to be on an exercise routine. Let's see how I can make changes for next week. I would love to wrap up the month with a five pound loss.
I know I haven't posted any weigh ins and that is because nothing has really happened. Once I get my exercise routine in tact, I will begin the weekly weigh ins!!

It was a fun weekend, but it was a hard weekend lol Alot of socializing, so food and drinks were a problem. I didn't do too bad on the food, but I did have a few drinks, and they were good drinks lol
I will be walking every evening this week. Exercising always helps in the eating department. I have to make it a point to get out of work on time, so that I can put in an hour walk!!
If I plan and prepare, this should be a good week. Gotta make it happen.

Today is February 1, so it is perfect for a New Beginning....though any day is a good time to start fresh!! You just have to tell yourself and convince yourself that NOW is the time to make a change.
So today, once again, lol, I started the 13 day diet with non-starving modifications lol It has to go good, because I have some goals that I need to accomplish!!!
Here we go.....

Though I did start the walking again, the eating hasn't been too good. I MUST reach goal by my birthday, because I want to get the dress for the wedding and be ready for all the parties. I MUST be back under 150 before the Baby Shower.
When I started walking again, the feeling of freedom and health felt so good. If you haven't felt this, I really suggest that you begin taking walks before or after dinner, it definitely feels good.
I am trying to get my act together....NO.....I AM GETTING MY ACT TOGETHER!!!

work - 8 hours
drive - 2 hours
sleep - 7 hours
lunch - 1 hour
cook dinner and eat - 1 hour
shower and shower my mom - 1 hour, 30 minutes
dogs dinner and playtime - 30 minutes
miscellaneous house and backyard - 1 hour
exercise - 1 hour
prepare next day lunch - 30 min
That is 23.5 hours already and I was being kind on miscellaneous house, because I NEVER stop in the house. Also, I didn't include grocery shopping and hundreds of other things that I usually do. It is no wonder that I have no time lol
Oh well, this is something that I cannot change, so I better continue to learn to live with what I have and do the best I can.
I have been doing good on the diet and I am looking forward to the weekend so that I can do a little more exercise!

Sorry I didn't post on Monday, but I was really busy at work and I had doctor's appointments on Friday.
As you can see, I am back on track. I have been doing well and enjoying all my meals. I would love to be at 149 by next Monday...let's see!! Gotta fight for it!
I really cannot stand to get home to almost darkness. I am so looking forward to the time change in March!! I can accomplish so much more when the sun is out!!
Hunger is building, so it's time for lunch.

Day three of the 13 day diet and so far so good!!!
I had a piece of toast with my black coffee and it was heavenly hahahaha it's amazing how we take the flavor of food for granted when we are not dieting lol
My lunch was amazing. I had a salad with lettuce and tomato and then I had a bunch of grilled asparagus and an orange for dessert. The asparagus tasted like a steak lol My taste buds were happy dappy!!!
My dinner should be good also. I will have a two egg omelet with ham and another salad!!!
Feels good to eat right!!

Day one of the 13 day diet went really well. By night time, I started to get really hungry, so I ate a sugar free jello. When you are hungry, a sugar free jello taste as good as apple pie a la mode! lol
My steak and salad for lunch was delicious!!! I had a tiny cupcake at work,, but I felt totally in control, because even though it was yummy, I did not eat anymore. I am winning little battles. By the end of the week, I should be nailing this diet.
I will continue to walk by all the chocolates and cookies that I see, and before you know it...BAM, 5 pounds will be gone!!!

This is the year to hit goal weight. I did pretty good last year, but I screwed it up at the end. Oh well, can't look back...gotta look at the present and future to see what you gotta do to get where you want to go.
I started the 13 day diet today. I did all my groceries and cooked my lunch and had it ready to go for this morning. I had black coffee in the morning and then, dummy me, left this morning and I totally forgot my lunch. Luckily, when I went downstairs to the cafeteria, they had everything that I needed for lunch.... 3 hard boiled eggs, tomatoes and steamed veggies. Great....I am on track! I will have a piece of grilled chicken later and a sugar free jello with sugar free cool-whip.
I am not horribly hungry, but I do have my rough moments. I will get through them and I will survivive!
Starting Weight: 170 lbs
Last Weigh In: 146 lbs
Today's Weigh In: 158.5 lbs
Weight Loss This Week: gained 12.5 lbs
Total Weight Loss: 11.5 lbs
Goal Weight: 135 lbs
I know that I did really shitty during the holidays!!! sucks, and all I can do is learn from it. Eating out of control is an addiction and it is very hard to be in control. I will do better next time!!!
Gotta find my inner strength so that I can accomplish my goal!
