SOOOO today was THE day. The day that I woke up...looked in the mirror....and decided ENOUGH WAS ENOUGH!!!! I am tired of BEING tired of needing to lose weight. So today I am going to START OVER!!! A year ago (minus one month) I looked like this....
WOW!!! I know!!! I am that person who gains 75 pounds when they are pregnant. THE PROBLEM...my babies only weigh 9 pounds (Not 73). That leaves me a little bit of work. I have done MOST of the work, but there are 10 darn pounds that just WILL NOT LEAVE and unfortunately there is not another 9 pounder hanging out it there!!
SOOO I have decided to take it public. NOTHING has kept me motivated thus far. It is almost February and I am still eating like it is Christmas Eve. SOOO I thought....WHAT IF I POST IT FOR ALL TO SEE??? I figure I cannot lie about it if EVERYBODY KNOWS. SOOO here is the post. I am going to weigh in EVERY Wednesday (regardless of how my week went) and post my result on THIS blog. Let me clarify... I will post what I lost or gained...not the actual weight. I DO have SOME pride left!!!
Here is my plan:
*EAT LESS!!! I know...mind boggling.
*limit my intake of sugar and bread (I would give it up, but that ALWAYS leads to a HUGE relapse).
*NO food after dinner. I am a late night person....and with those midnight activities I OFTEN enjoy a little snack. NO MORE!!!
*Drink more water!!!
*NO FAST FOOD...even if my kids are eating there.
*Make good choices. FOR EXAMPLE...when I go to restaurants I like to eat like there is no tomorrow and eat the WORST (best) things on the menu. I am going to try to make good choices EVEN when I am not at home.
*I am not going to promise to exercise....I would, but MY KID DOES NOT SLEEP (period). I am not sure why, but I have insomniac children. Often after putting little E to sleep, I have to GO BACK and put him to sleep every 30-45 minutes until I go to bed. Then he wakes up and I give up and bring him to my bed (where we BOTH don't sleep). It is NO BUENO!!! That is an excuse I know, but when Baby doesn't sleep, it makes it hard to go out to the garage to the treadmill...because then he wakes and I lose momentum and get angry and NEVER DO IT AGAIN!!! So I WILL TRY TO WORK OUT (fingers crossed).
*Last but not least....SMOOTHIES. Before Christmas I was doing well and eating healthy and EVERY morning I was drinking a GREEN SMOOTHIE. Yucky sounding, but TASTY!!! Of course I found the recipe on PINTEREST, but I pretty much just add what I want. It REALLY did make me feel better and help me lose weight...that is BEFORE the Christmas COOKIES arrived:) SO I am gonna try that again!!!
Ok...that is it...THE PLAN!!! If you wanna join me feel free to comment on your success. I would LOVE to hear of somebody suffering along with me:) Wish me luck. GOODBYE 10 POUNDS of YUCK....I WILL NOT MISS YOU!!!
