Default New year's schmoo year's

Okay, so I have been slacking off on my eating habits (low carb HA! ) and not establishing an excercise routine but I have only myself to blame!

I am starting my resolutions early- why wait for New Year's when you can start now and avoid the rush? Time to get my butt in gear. I want to lose at least 5 lbs by December 13 (Friday the 13th )

I am designing a new plan for myself this week which is going to take effect this Saturday! Why Saturday? Because that is my dance class day and that is the day of "MONSTER GROCERY SHOP". I spent my lunch hour perusing my Suzanne Somers book and writing up a menu for 2 weeks and putting together a grocery list.

My goal is to lose that last 13 lbs and re shape my butt and thighs so I will be a babe by April 2003!

RESOLUTIONS:

(1) No late night snacking

(2) Eat proper low carb meals

(3) Stick to an exercise routine

(4) Drink more water

(5) Eat more fruit


Thank you all for reading my rant

Okay, Mauvais... me, too.

Am I losing my mind, or is your dog getting bigger?

The new avatar is of a Portie in "the Retriever Cut" - the other one was "the Lion Cut" which looks pretty assinine in real life.

I want to be in a size 20 pants by December 25th. I am not going to worry about the scales so much anymore. I just want to look good in whatever size I happen to be in. My hubby is telling me now all the time I am looking good. I think he sees my attitude has changed more than anything else.

That's great Virginia! Keep up the good work! I think when you feel better healthwise it affects your attitude about yourself and life in general.

Well today is the first day of my Schmoo Year's resolution.

I am starting the morning off with a healthy breakfast then a 25 minute walk to my dance class. I will belly dance for 1 1/2 hours then go eat a healthy lunch at a nearby restaurant. After that it's a 15 minute walk to the grocery store to stock up on low carb food which I am having delivered since DH is in Montreal today with a vanload of his guy friends.

I bought a second Suzanne Somers book at chapters yesterday so that I have some more recipes to play with

I also have big plans to do housework today I guess we'll see what happens

Okay, I was afraid to even state another goal since I completely blew off the last two.....

BUT

I have to do something, so my goal is to get back on track. I bought a journal (okay, a small spiral notebook) to track weight, measurements and food in.
I WILL be back on track by December (meaning more than one day in a row!!)
Specific goals like weight lost etc. will be easier for me to deal with once I am at least eating right again!!!

Mauvais-YOU ARE DOING GREAT!!!! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!!!

Whoohooo! Motivation abounds here!

I'd say I'm with you, but I've already pledged 5lbs by Nov. 28 on the Turkey Time Challenge (Support Board).

Hi Squeak! I ate a Swarma. It is a Lebanese chicken sandwich.

Basically you take a small pita round put garlic sauce, lettuce. tomato, pickled turnip, onions, hot peppers and chicken that is carved off of this roast chicken that is on a rotating spit and roll it all up and enjoy! It is delish!

Okay, so it is Thursday today and I am still pretty much OP. Although I did have an almond tart after dinner last night. I still think I am doing pretty good so far. I am drinking more water and exercised twice this week outside of my normal daily walks.

The only junk food in my house right now is 2 packets of ginger thin cookies from Ikea.

Still trying to be good
