New Start

How many times do I have to say that??? Am I ready this time? What is different about this time? Honestly I couldn't tell you. Will this be the last new start? I doubt it. But it's a start right?? =)

I went lingerie shopping yesterday. And while I don't look HORRIBLE. I could look better. A LOT better. There is a 5K I want to do on the 30th. Have I begun to run again. Yeah, ONCE last week. Ugh. And it's not like I don't have the time - I just have a TON of excuses. No more. I had my healthy breakfast - yogurt parfait. It was yum too. Here is the plan from now on with the meals:

Breakfast: Yogurt or Oatmeal with a fruit mix in and something crunchy.
Lunch: A Lean Cuisine meal with extra veggies or leftovers (proportionally packed)
Dinner: A meal that I had PLANNED

I've gotten really bad about planning dinner. I've gotten really bad about grocery shopping. I need to come up with a plan and stick to it. I can do it. Just because I've been busy doesn't mean I need to shirk my responsibilites. I can still plan quick easy meals. I think what I am going to do to make is easier is to plan that every week I will have seven different types of foods. For instance, one meal will be italian, one meal will be mexican, one meal will be a casserole, etc. That way I'm not trying to come up with so many different choices. So that's the plan anyway.

I'm right there with you.......I could have copy and pasted this post and put it on my blog, which, by the way, I haven't been updating AT ALL! Talk about a rut.....I am in one. But, I jogged a mile, and walked a mile today, and am writing down everything I steps, baby steps. If I can actually write down everything I eat in one day, I'll be doing good. I usually give up on that abut mid-afternoon. We can do this....slow and steady wins the race!!! Wishing you well!!

It's a tough journey, but once you get started (or restarted) it can flow nicely. I love your plans and totally agree with you on the meal planning. I believe that's the hardest part, so this month I planned for the whole month. I can switch days around ANY TIME I want...but at least I have all my meals laid out to see! It rocks!

You can do this girl, and I will support you 100% o the way!
