First thing I have to do is thank Cory, Totegirl,TC,and Lisa Jane for being SO supportive... without you guys I would probably have given in yet again. BUT this morning I am determined to have a perfect day.. I am going to do this, and do it right. I am planning on going on the trail walk this afternoon. It is freezing outside, but the girls need the fresh air and I can bundle them up with blankets in the stroller. I have realized that I have fallen into my old way of excuses. "I'm too tired", "The girls won't let me", "Its too cold/hot outside", "I dont have time"... I know that all of these are balony, because I was working out twice a day and none of these got in the way before. Its just my 'fat side' whispering in my ear! Well.. I'm not listening anymore. Once again, I am going to do this...and eventually I WILL WIN!
As for water intake.. I bought a sport bottle that I can carry around with me..and I will just make sure that I take sips as often as I can. I still drink alot of hot tea, and in this weather that is NOT going to stop anytime soon, but I am making sure that they are all decaf now.
I found some YUMMY recipes for protein shakes.. and I can definatley replace my 'snacks' with one of those!
Why is it so difficult to do something that is good for you? Its not that I dont love myself.. I do! And I love my family and want to be around for them for as long as I can, but for some reason, food and laziness takes over everytime. I fall into the whole..'they should love me the way I am'... Well.. THEY DO! but that is not what I want. I dream of having the beautiful body that looks good in clothes right off the hanger! The healthy body that can roll around on the floor with my girls instead of sitting on the couch and just watching all the fun. The healthy body that would look good standing next to my gorgeous hubby. When I think about it, my body is not THAT far from its goal. 70lbs... people on here have lost twice, even triple that weight.. so why cant I lose it? I CAN, I CAN, I CAN... and I am starting today. Look out world... I'M TAKING OVER!!!!
