It’s been a few days since I’ve last posted and I can’t say I have been perfect. New Year’s Day was another party and a rich meal, champagne, chocolates and staying up too late. Thursday I returned to work for the first time in 2 weeks and I ate like a model citizen all day, drank tons of water and jogged on the treadmill for 40 minutes after work. Then I headed to another Christmas celebration and all my good work went down the drain when faced with chocolate covered blueberries and cherries. Sitting and snacking put me over my allotted calorie intake and I am back up to 141.8lbs. I went to the movies with friends and their kids last night and ate pizza, popcorn and diet coke.

One positive thing that has come out of this is that I am back to tracking my calories and exercise daily. Even if I don’t stay on plan I need to track everything that I have eaten so I can see where I went off track.

This morning I hit the gym and ran a 10 minute mile, did some weight training and an ab workout.

We have finally set a date for our cruise! We will be heading to the Caribbean the first week of May for some fun in the sun so I have approximately 4 months to lose at least 10lbs and tone up. I want to look smoking hot in a bathing suit and summer dresses.

Additionally my husband and I are going to be competing in an extreme fitness competition in June and I want to be able to pull myself up over the obstacles without help and run the 10k course with ease. I need to start working on learning to do pull-ups, shoulder exercises and ab workouts.

I’ve decided that I am going to try to train for 10k endurance 3 times a week and on the off days do weight training and try to improve the speed of my mile. I also am going to try to track my weekly fitness stats on this blog every Saturday.
