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!
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.
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:
Get off this blog and move.
Treadmill for 30 min.-1 hr. Burn minimum 250 calories.
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.
Consume 100 calories at a time. No more. Eating only when I truly am hungry.
