Friday, Feb. 11, 2011

Well, today is my official start day because...well, I'm a slacker. Got on the scale this morning and all the walking at Disney did NOTHING. I guess they are right when they say you have to burn more calories than you take in to lose weight. Who knew?

So far, I've had a bowl of cereal. Not the healthiest of breakfasts but I haven't been to the store...and breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right?

I am going to write out a schedule of everything I am going to eat for the week. When I pack for the kids and Ryan in the morning, I am going to pack for myself too. Hopefully that will help me stay on track. The less I have to think, the better I will do.

So excited to see how we can go about this in different ways, and *hopefully* still have the same results.

Forcing myself to take the time to work out is going to be my number one goal though. So far, I haven't done it yet today but it is still in the plans!

Here's to being healthy! Gotta be able to move to take care of these kiddos! :)

Here we go!

Today is the first day in the quest to lose these pesky last 10 pounds. I will post what I have eaten everyday, calorie count and post what work outs I have done. I will do this so I will see for myself what is passing through my lips...every small insignificant bite will be posted. It will make me more aware of all the taste testing I do throughout the day and how those can add up too. Hopefully the pounds will melt away :)
Yesterday I ate all of my guilty pleasures to prepare for this challenge. I realize the piece of chocolate or cookie here or there is ok, however once I have one I want more. It is easier to go cold turkey! I am mentally ready and think I will just feel better about myself and have more energy. I am glad I have a partner to support and help :)

Well, I am going to start! :)

Got on the scale this morning and...well, it wasn't pretty. I am actually close to 15lbs (technically +14.3) more than I want to be. Weight has a way of creeping up on you when you least expect it.

Excuse of the week: stress eating. I know it's not a good one but that's my excuse. When Ty got sick, I stopped eating. Now that he is home, I eat constantly. I am hoping that focusing on doing other things to cope with the "left over" stress.

Today's Goal:
- Stay away from the birthday cake on the counter
- Run/walk for at least 30 minutes

So excited to start this!
