Come on April........

Well, its official - no April Fools here - the complete truth and nothing but the truth - I am still at the same weight I was at at the beginning of March. Now for others this would be a let down, a fork in the road or just what the heck happened - but I am not going to look at it that way. I am excited that I didn't gain any weight, that I was able to "maintain" the 22 pounds lost, that I did make an effort this month and that I am ready to take on the next month and the next and the next. I wish I had done measurements, but not going to dictate what the tape would have told me - I know I am doing good!! This is the most weight I have lost in over 7 years - or as it been longer then that - wow - crazy! What was I waiting for? Glad that I am making great progress this time and not letting anything get in my way - even that scale!! The workouts are going great, the meals - well, I have had a few moments here and there. I feel good, I am down 2 pant sizes, I like how I look (certain days), but there is so much more for me to do and to gain in this journey - no wait, I mean Lose!!!!

Ready - Set - Time to get back to the complete plan - keep going with the plan - kick it up a notch when I can - not discouraged - not frustrated - it is working for me at the moment - just have to make sure I stick stick stick to it this month  - Writing it down - keeping me on track - that's the plan.....
  • 20 minutes x 6 - 20 minutes of exercise a day, 6 days a week - let's just try it for March and see what happens. Heck, if it is 30 minutes then that is great!
  • Plan my dinner meals for the week each Sunday.
  • Continue to pack my lunch everyday for work
  • Water, water, water - nourish the body and it will nourish you!
  • Portion control
  • No Seconds!!!
  • No fast food (90 days and counting)
  • No soda
  • Limit the "treats" to once a week - maybe just once a month - yep, that's the ticket - what the heck, make it a healthy treat - a walk in the park, a movie, send a "thinking about you" note to a friend, find a moment for you rather then a moment with food!
Ready - Set - Keep Going - You can do it - I can do it - We can all do it!!!!!!! Here's to smashing the next 22 pounds...................GO GO GO GO GO GO GO!!!!!!!!

Staying MOtivated

Water makes you pee. Pee makes you lose fat. How cool is that freaky little concept.

We pee out fat.


Have fun kickin' it up a notch: BAM!
