Spring Goals

So last week I told you I was re-committing to this weight loss thing. I actually had 3 really good days in a row but was Easter Sunday and I had was like a shark in an ocean of blood...I went on a frenzy. Chocolate, rolls, sweet potatoes, real butter....I was eating faster than I could chew.

But, it's Monday. And Monday's are good. Spring is good. It is a time of renewal.

My WORD for 2011 is REINVENT. I have been reinventing the way I do art, the way I look at my life. The way I interact. I am trying to get involved and serve others more. I am on the right path with it all but my health. So here are a few "mini" goals for the next 2 months....

April 25th-July 1st Health & Fitness Goals

*I will get to 148.0 by July 1st, 2010
*I will eat less at every meal, never eating till I am stuffed
*I will allow myself a splurge meal once a week
*I will exercise at least 4 days a week for 30 minutes or more
*I will share positive entries and quotes here on my Blog
*I will turn to others for inspiration and motivation and try to help them along
*I will remember that I am only human and I can't do it all...I can only do my BEST.

What are some of your short term goals?

Hungry Girl

So, I love Hungry Girl. Love her emails {have received them since she began quite a few years ago}, have one of her books and watch her show on the Cooking Channel. She has a new book out "300 Under 300" and was seriously thinking about getting it. Do you have the book? What do you think of Hungry Girl? I would love some advice!:)

Today I have felt so out of shape. Really I'm not...I mean nothing's's just the weather. It affects what I eat, how much I eat and how I feel about myself. Overall it has been a good eating day.

Thanks for all the kind words. I promise to stay here, blogging my way to a healthy way of life.:)

My husband and I are recommitting ourselves to losing together. He has been so successful this past year but is still 15 pounds away from his goal. So grateful for my sweet Dave!!!

This is Dave one year ago...

Ugh...terrible photo of me. that's Dave last year...

Here he is just last Monday on his 46th Birthday...30 pounds lighter!!
{I look the same-sigh}

Love this photo!

I am proud of him.  He is my inspiration!!

So, girls...I know I have been super negative here. NO MORE. I promise myself today that this is a place for positive thoughts, feelings and quotes. And Mer and Mo...thank you for reminding me that even though I am crazy busy is not an excuse to neglect my health!! I appreciated that!!!

I haven't fallen off the earth. Just been busy. Still trying to make better food choices. Trying to fit in exercise.

I am not doing great...but not doing bad.

How are you all doing?

I'm ok

I am still on this roller coaster called weight loss. One day I eat well, stay hydrated and workout. The next day I'm sneaking bites of cake and doughnuts without so much as walking up a few stairs. *sigh*.

Today is  a good day though. Today I woke up with energy to spare. Took a brish 37 minute walk outside and enjoyed the sun on my face. Really brightened my mood!

Planning on a salad for lunch with shrimp. Should be good. Drinking lots of water, too.

Do you accept yourself today?

Happy Friday

So happy it's Friday. I have a Deep Tissue massage in just an hour and I am sooo excited!

I did workout today. 30 minutes to my Latin DVD. There is a way to customized it so I did that...made it so much fun and I did catch on to the moves a bit better.

My weigh in went so well on Wednesday!! I am down to 155:) Just gotta keep this momentum going.
