Getting Back to 'Me'
I'm pretty sure I'm not the only person out there with weight issues, right? Right?....But sometimes it does feel like it. I mean I know women are all sorts of different shapes and sizes and we should feel comfortable in our own shoes...but sometimes I honestly don't like the shoes I'm wearing. Get my drift? I can't help but feel that I don't fit my size sometimes. Does that make any sense to anyone? I am the biggest I have ever been in my life...AND I HATE IT! There I said it. It's out there on the inter-web. I don't feel healthy, I don't feel active and I don't feel like me. It's not so much about the numbers as it's about how it makes me feel. It's about knowing that I use to be more active and that I use to make the right choices. I need to find that balance again. I want my confidence back! I want that feeling of achievement! I want more energy!! I want ME back!! :)
So in an effort to met my new but not-so new goals, I've decided I need to be held accountable for my choices and what better way than to share my goals and journey with you guys. I need to write it down. Chris and I are getting married June 2014 and I want to achieve my goals by then and maintain them.
Okay so far this is what I am doing, or at least started to do. I created Meal Plan sheets so I can plan ahead. (I'll post them soon enough). I need to get more serious about getting them done by Sundays in order to make sure we have enough ingredients for the week.
I've also been surfing the net looking for healthy recipes that are also yummy. After all, I'm not striving for the rabbit green diet. I want real food.
Here's where I have found some really great dishes. Skinnytaste. Gina is an excellent source of healthy food AND she includes nutritional information and Weight Watchers points! HOLLA!!
What exactly are my Overall goals, you ask? Well...
1. Write everything down! If I put it in my mouth write it down, if I walk it I write it...you get the gist
2. Set small goals for myself
3. Exercise at least 3x a week
4. Slim down to 130lbs and shape up (strength is very important to me)
5. Find balance and inner peace :)
Those are my overall goals...vague right? I know I need to narrow them down. That's also a problem I need to work on.
Well I need to head off to work but at least I have gotten this started! That's a start, right?
See you soon!
