Old picture... but same snow!
It is another cold morning. Another 2 inches of snow fell last night. I am up early again this morning. For some reason when I workout the night before, I wake up early ready to go! So here I sit at 4:30am writing my blog... it is nice to have a little time to myself in the morning. I was debating working out this morning because I am sore from last nights Ultimate Tae Bo workout. I'll see how I feel a little later on. My diet went well yesterday. Tried a new WW recipe for soup. Slow Cooking Manhattan Clam Chowder. Its a two point soup, very filling and yummy. Even hubby loved it, and he is pretty picky about his soups.
Today is a day for staying home. Family will be coming by for lunch and play time with the girls. I have a little more cleaning to do, and some crafty christmas presents to put together.
I tend to do well when I set goals for myself... I have made a new mini goal. I want to be under 200 lbs when we leave for Puerto Rico. Because we dont have a set date yet I can only estimate that we are leaving in 2 or 3 weeks. I hopped on the scale really quick this morning to see how I was doing.. and I was down another 2 lbs !! 207!! I am not posting that until Monday, you never know what will happen between now and then.... but it was a great motivator! So, I have 2 weeks to lose 7 lbs...8 if I want to be UNDER 200 lbs!
I also raised my total goal weight. I had 140 on here, but after thinking about it I realized that I would be happy at 160... not because it means not losing the other 20 lbs, but because I have NEVER been 140 in my life, I was 160 in high school and because of my athletic build, that was very comfortable... so I will go for 160 and when I reach it, if I think I should keep going... then I will! But for now, it seems more do-able to me.
Ok... so I bought a pair of pants before I started dieting. A size 18! Yesterday I wore them, and every couple of minutes I had to pull them back up!!! They are too big! Woooohoooo. I hate to say it, but I think I can throw those bad boys away and get out my 16's!
Last nights workout was hard to get started. But once I got going I started feeling better about it. It was one of those workouts that you needed to do to remind you how good it feels. Today I will do an Ab workout and my tae bo tonight.
Have a Blessed Day
