So I'm a few days into Bloggest Loser. So armed with my "fitness" magazines, a world wide web full of resources, my Wii and Wii Fit and my VERY demanding dogs I am ready to get things rolling. In April when I talked to my doctor about things that I could do to lose weight she told me that I need to keep a regular sleep schedule, eat regularly and try to cut out as much soda and carbonated beverages as possible. So far I am failing pretty badly at all of that....though I am in the process of giving up soda....so I don't really know how well that's going to go because I'm only a couple days into that as well.
Last year when we adopted our Cocker Spaniel, Laci, and with the way I am constantly moving around at my job I was able to go from a size 14 pair of jeans down to a 7/8 pair of jeans. Seriously, that was a pretty big highlight for me....and all of that with just WALKING. Now things have taken a downward spiral and I'm headed back towards my 14's again...ok well, I'm closer to a 13 right now. But then we move a little higher up the body and get to my tummy.....NOT loving it at all. Many years of incorrect eating and basically treating myself like crappy crap crap have caught up with me.
So I'm going to give myself little tiny goals to try to achieve during the week and we'll see how well I do by Sunday....This weeks goals:
1. Do NOT give in to the caffeine headaches that I know I'm due for as a result of giving up soda....NO MORE SODA!
2. Get in 3-4 good work outs.
3. Take the Girls for at least 1 walk a day (more if possible on my days off.)
4. Try to find as many "Healthy" recipes as possible (if you know of any blogs, webpages, etc let me know please).
5. Try to lose 1-2 pounds.
Wish me luck, I'm going to need it!
