57 Days

2 Months
8 Weeks
57 Days


Our trip is all but booked and as I look at the beautiful, crisp, sparkly -20 degree white snowy day outside the warm, sparkling, +30 degree beach is mighty appealing! 
 As is me looking good on it.

What else to motivate me into blogging again except another weight loss goal?
I'm going to join the other millions of people who resolve to loose weight as a New Year's resolution.  My only defense in not being like everyone else is that I've been working my way up to this point since October when I hired a personal trainer.
Have I had any success?  Well, yes and no.  I managed to NOT gain weight during an extremely stressful time of my life and Christmas.  At one point I had lost a pound but I'm sure it's back again.  Considering I also battled strep twice in a month I'd say that is a huge victory.     
So.  Plan #1,220, 178,094 for the weight-loss part of my life is this:
1. Exercise 5-6 days a week as per my trainer.  Meet with him once every three weeks.
2. Do not use exercise as an excuse to eat poorly and expect to get away with it!
3. Keep my caloric intake between 1300-1400/day.
4.  Make those calories worth it - NO CRAP!
5.  BUT....allow myself a cheat day/part day once a week.
6.  Keep good snack options available so that I don't drift to the bad.
7. Weekly self-weigh in (gulp!).  
8.  Positive attitude - don't get too hung up on the numbers.
9.  Blog about it for my own personal accountability. 
10.  I don't actually have a tenth point but I couldn't stop this list at #9.
Here I go.  Again.  Sorry to drag you along with me.  Again.
