Doing good so far

Well Day one was a success. Day two is on track. It's the next days that are going to be rough. Always are. Once I get in a routine, I should be ok. Journaled and was under 1400 calories yesterday. =) Went to the gym in the morning AND did the Shred last night (boy did that kick my butt!!). Only one soda yesterday even though I almost forgot and was going to have one with dinner but changed to water. I may just limit myself to two a day. Will rethink that. I did not do the sit ups as the Shred has an ab part to it but I will start adding my own ab work in too once I get comfortable with the Shred. All in all I am HAPPY with yesterday. =)

20 in 7 - The Vegas Challenge

So my bff and I are going to Vegas for my 35th birthday!! Yippee!! Now although I should have been to goal by then I will not be. But that's ok. I'm moving forward from here. ;) So my goal is to lose 20 lbs before we go in 7 weeks. Unfortunately, my birthday falls on Mother's Day weekend so can't go that weekend so we are going the following weekend. =) Yeah!!! I can't wait.

Here is what I am going to do to accomplish this goal:

1.) Journal
2.) Stay within 1200-1400 calories a day
3.) Drink 64 ozs of water a day minimum
4.) Only drink 1 soda a day
5.) Go to the gym in the morning before work Monday-Friday
6.) Do Jillian Michael's 30 day shred at night
7.) Do 100 sit ups a night (work up to 500???)

I'll keep updating as best I can!

Starting Weight: 189.0

Week One of Trying to Get Back on Track

Ok, yesterday was ok. I journaled everything! Yeah! I drank 32 ozs of water. Not the 64 I was shooting for but better than zero! And i did not work out in the morning.

Today, I did not work out this morning. I think I'm going to scrap that this week and start fresh on Monday.  Funny thing, I got woken up twice by Taylor and I felt more ready to wake up at 3:45 then the night before when I slept straight though. Go figure! I plan on journaling everything today (I didn't do half bad yesterday and I should realize that!) and I am going to get my full 64 ozs of water in today. :)

Baby Steps.

Reporting In

So I said yesterday I would do three things. Well I'm on track to do two. I never woke up this morning and went to work out. :( I just couldn't get up. Ugh! And I didn't get woken up by the kids either so what the heck? Maybe I need to be woken up so I'm not deeply sleeping?? Who knows. I'll try again tomorrow.

I'm on my first 16 ozs of water.
I've journaled my breakfast and lunch (haven't eaten lunch yet) in myfitnesspal.

I even have dinner planned out tonight. :) Yeah! Now to just get my butt up and get exercising.

Plan for exercising tomorrow - Start C25K over again.

It's time

It's time to get back to this. I've been slacking off BIG time. I am almost back in the 190's. I look like I'm pregnant. Eek!! I wouldn't be surprised if some of my coworkers thought I was pregnant!! This is ridiculous. What is worth more to me?? And the sad thing is, the food - isn't even that tasty half the time. Ugh!! So I begin. And the only way to begin is by baby steps - correct?? So here is the plan for this week:

1. Drink 64 ozs of water each day.
2. Go to the gym before work Tuesday - Friday
3. Write down everything I eat at myfitnesspal.com

That's is just three things. I can do this.

Starting weight today - 189.2 :(
