Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow

Yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone!  Yay!  I have a vision for what I will become in the near future.  I will be a more disciplined person, full of hope and confidence.   I’m getting there bit by bit.  I splurged a little with the Derby pie and the truffles the last couple of days. Overall, I don’t think I have taken in too many calories this Christmas time.

Pluses Toward My Goal Of 125

+++ One thing I have given up is pop.  Now  I drink a couple small cups of coffee, a large glass of unsweetened tea, and plenty of  water daily.

+++ Also, I have started lifting weights every few days.

+++ I have been walking on my treadmill daily when I can.

+++ The last four workouts on my treadmill, I have incorporated running for about half of the workout.  I walk 3.5 mph while listening to my 1st song on the MP3 player, and then I run 5.5 mph with the 2nd song and alternate those  two speeds for each new song.

+++I am jotting down for all the world to see when I go overboard and overindulge in food.

+++I have created this blog  to keep me focused and more accountable.

+++I have found a buddy to relate to, to share my thoughts, and to keep me on the positive–Madison, thank you!

Let me begin again(already!!)

OK.  A week has gone by and I haven’t done what I planned.  I need to keep a vision of me at 125 lbs. in the front of my mind.  When I see food laid out in front of me, I forget everything.  The other day I got out a snack for some kids and fixed myself a mosaic of junk food–chips, coconut balls, and a sugary pop.  I didn’t even think about my new plan at all until I started eating!  Can you believe it?

It is so, so hard to turn down favorite foods at parties.  I am making my mind up to just get a small sample of everything.  I don’t have to get stuffed to enjoy the food!

I plan today to really get going and roll with it.  No more giving in to the chocolates and cookies lying around the house.

Here’s today’s big plan:

  1. Get off this blog and move.
  2. Treadmill for 30 min.-1 hr.  Burn minimum 250 calories.
  3. Dart through the house, cleaning to burn calories( and also to get it over with).  I will also listen to some upbeat music and keep with the tempo.
  4. Consume 100 calories at a time.  No more.  Eating only when I truly am hungry.
  5. Water, unsweetened tea, and coffee to drink.
  6. A  30-min.-1 hr.workout  on my Total Gym.
  7. A 30-min. walk with my son outside.
  8. Dancing in my room with my favorite music .
  9. Keep a brief log of what I actually do.
  10. Maintain an absolutely positive attitude, dude.
