Hey everyone! I wrote another post introducing myself (called motivation). Well, hello again!
A little summary. I am currently at 150lbs and my goal is to be down 10 pounds by July...I'm still trying to figure out if that is really a realistic goal. I might shoot for 5 and then another 5 by the second fitting. Oh yeah, that is another thing...I'm getting married in october. I'm SOOO excited! We are getting married here in Iowa, and we are going on a small weekend honeymoon to a local resort. In January though, we are going to Disney World. Not sure what I'm mostly excited about lol.
Diet wise...I'm just really trying to watch my calories. I am doing slimfast in the morning (just seems to help get me going) and then eating some fruit and a sandwhich for lunch. I normally shoot for a couple of snacks during the day and an appropriate dinner. Some days are hard though lol. I try to aim for about 1300-1400 calories.
I am also pretty loyal to the gym...well, at least I was lol. I was going at least four times a week for the last few months (got my first 5 pounds off!), but these last couple of weeks just got crazy (I had to do some wedding planning things and organize and get my hosue ready for another friend's bachelorette party...lasted the entire weekend). I am ready to start afresh. I want to get these last 10 pounds off!
So, anyway...day 1 back on track is goinig ... o.k. so far. Actually, not very good this morning. Insteed of slimfast I had a Smoore Poptart...opps (left over from the weekend party). I also ate some chips (Cool Ranch) and chocolate...also left over. I felt HORRIBLE! Luckily, I threw the rest of the chips away, brought the rest of the chocolate to school...in the teacher's lounge...they are all gone now lol... and gave the rest of the poptarts to my roommate. I really want to start fresh.
My lunch was good, and I had a 100 calorie snack after school. My plan was to go workout after school. I did not sleep very well lastnight, and we went for a LONG walk yesterday and my lower legs are really sore. I know I should just GO and get the week started. I really don't think I'm going to make it nonight though. That's ok though...if I go every day for the rest of the week I will make my goal of going four times before the weekend
Hey Swimming, are you an Harry Potter fan? Mentioning AD in your signature. I am too! Can't wait for the 6th movie this summer. I'm sad that the books are all finished though
It rained here all morning too! Luckily, it warmed up in the afternoon so we got to play outside (elemetnary school substitute teacher).
Cookie, I had to laugh so hard at your post. That is soo true! It sounds like you deserve a splurge this weekend
lol. Are you in this wedding? Maybe just going to a good friend/family member's wedding.
100py, sounds like you deserve a nice break. Do you have special plans during your break?
Lissa, lol...that is a great idea! I bet they won't turn you away at least. I checked out curves once, but it didn't seem quite right to me. I really enjoy running/fast jogging on a treadmil...a great stress reliever. Curves did look like a lot of fun though. I think I would have joined if they would have access to a couple of treadmils/ellipitcals. That is just me though
Freethetoys, Mondays are always rough on me too...lol, I normally take the weekend off. I hope you get your iron count back up. Eat some bran flakes or something (I think that is a pretty high iron count). Maybe a couple of eggs...
Paula, what don't they tell the bride??? This sounds like a show I would really appreciate
lol. What is nsv? I'm sorry you didn't see any weightloss, but keep your spirits up. Keep working hard.
Remember how to smile, you going to New York? How fun! Any special occasion? I've never been. Dinner always messes me up too. I normally stay busy enough for breakfast and lunch...by evening I have some time and have a tendency to snack all night.
