Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow

Fleetwood Mac-Don’t Stop (Thinking About Tomorrow) LIVE!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  

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!

Hold On Tight To Your Dreams

This is another great song by ELO. It keeps me motivated. I love the beat and the lyrics.

Hold On Tight To Your Dreams by ELO

I like all kinds of music. Music makes the world go round.

I weighed this morning before breakfast. I was 140. Good! Yesterday at Shoney’s I didn’t eat any sweets. Can you believe it?

The last couple of days I have burned 250 calories each day on my treadmill. I would walk about 3 mph while listening to a song on my mp3 player, and then run about 5 mph on the next song, etc. I can run longer than I thought I could.

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.
