Day 1 of 84 and LOTS of Tamales!!





Do you ever get discouraged when an event is coming up and you are no where near the weight you were hoping to be? How about this one... Do you ever want to give up because the event is only a month away and there is NO WAY you can lose all the weight by then? This is where I am right now... or was, until I got a fresh start last night. A friend sent me a book called Body-For-Life for Women! I read the entire thing last night.. and it inspired me to get going again. Not so much on working out... because I am doing that really well.. but it doesn't do any good when you are eating anything and everything in sight. So I am doing the challenge. I am going to stick to this challenge for the entire 84 days... and I don't care if I lose a ton of weight or any at all. My goal this time is to FINISH what I started. So starting today it is time to concentrate on my eating.



With all of this in my mind, I also had to make 5 dozen tamales for my father-in-laws wedding this weekend. I managed to do them all in one day... and you would think that I would have had to make extra to munch on myself.. but after making that many.. I couldn't stand the sight of them anymore! I will have to use some strong will power this weekend though.. there will be ALOT of no-no's there... including alcohol... and EVERYONE is camping out there over the weekend... ugh. Come on Will Power!!

I am a little excited to start a new day... and when I looked at the calender I realized that I still have 7 months before this "new me" year is over... plenty of time to lose the weight I was wanting to... BUT.. no time to mess up. This is it.. If I don't do it now, I will be letting myself, my hubby, my kids down. Ugh... Lets get this over with and start doing it RIGHT!!

Have a Blessed Day... and thanks for checking in on me... I will try to blog a little more often now!

Girl, your post was exactly what I needed to read! Kinda weird about the BFL- Women because I just saw the audio book version of it at Borders on my lunch break today and was thinking of buying it. Good luck to you, I know you can do this!

Hey sis, just checking in to see how you're doing. I've got 90 minutes of cardio done today. Just 4.5 hrs of cardio left before Friday! Hope you're doing well, give the cousins a hug from us :)
