HiYah! I met my 1st Mini Goal this morning! WooP WooP! It was to lose 10 pounds. I joined 3FCs 10 days ago and have lost 11 pounds since then. Kinda patting myself on the back for it. My second mini goal is to lose 5 pounds by the time I can get a ticker . . . which is another 9.5 days. lol. I think I can do it.
I'm not on a "diet" per say. I am dedicated to eating healthy, realizing that giving in from time to time is normal and I deserve it! I will limit myself though. I have decided that if I go 3 days without a pop I can treat myself to a SMALL cherry coke from Steak N Shake, which is my weakness!!! If I go 3 days without eating anything unhealthy I can have a candy bar or some thing of that nature. Along with those I have also promised myself to spend at least one extra hour running and playing with my kids IMMEDIATELY after I eat or drink the oh so yumminess that has made me fat!
As for exercising, I refuse to join a gym! I'd rather be active and spend time with my family at the same time. We have been hiking a few times and I make a point to go places that involve lots of walking. ex: the Zoo, Childrens Museum etc.
So far so good!
My 1st week I focused on my food and liquids. I drank one less pop per day and have had oatmeal or fruit for breakfast a salad for lunch grilled chicken raw veggies ect for dinner. If I get hungry in between meals I've eaten and apple, or some celery with peanut butter and raisins. AND drank a bottle of H2o! Lots and lots of H2o!
Now that I'm in week 2 I've started being much more active. On top of chasing 4 children around all day, I do as many sit ups as I can do before I even get out of bed and again before going to sleep. As soon as my 1yo lays down for a nap I'm up and down the basement stairs, doing squats while doing laundry, washing the van, I no longer use my mop I do it the ole fashioned way! Anything I can come up with to burn more calories!
I'm literally feeling great! I can't wait to lose more pounds and gain more ME!
