Quick, before I get Sidetrack'd

A side of motivation, please?

Thoughtfully penned on February 9th, 2009 and generally concerning Goals

One of my goals for 2009 is to lose 30 pounds.  What have I accomplished?  Absolutely nothing.  During January I was totally unmotivated in regard to my eating and exercise.

And now February has begun and it’s time to get my act in gear; for the next 6 weeks (which will take me right up to my birthday) I’m going to work on getting some of this weight off.  I’m not one for extreme dieting so I don’t expect to lose all of the weight in that time, but it would be wonderful to drop the first 10 pounds or so.

How will I go about it?  My first step is to reinstate the rules I used during my challenge back in the summer/fall – exercise 5-7 days per week, limit my non-water intake to one per day, and no eating after 7 pm.  I know I’ll have to make some additional alterations from the way I’m currently eating, but I think these three things will help a lot.

So there we have it.  I’ve spoken (or at least typed) it, so I have some accountability.  Now if I can just find the motivation.

Noise from the peanut gallery

  1. OK, ok , ok here is your motivation!!! I am going to lose the weight too. We have done it once before so we can do it again! Now I have typed it and I can have accountability!!

  2. I have to get back on track as well. I lost 10 pounds before we went to WDW. Since then, I haven’t been able to exercise because of my lung issues, so I have put it all back on. I am hoping to gradually start back this Friday (I am not all the way well, but I am much better). If I have no bad effects from the exercise, I am going to have to get motivated to lose the weight (AGAIN). We can cheer each other on!
