We had the best Christmas! Hazel got spoiled rotten with entirely too many toys (thanks everyone!) and she is in HEAVEN today! She has never sat this quietly and played with her toys this long. I am loving it!
So I have to go through her room and her toys in the living room today and donate the old toys so that we can make room for all her new toys.
We are so blessed.
On a different note I stepped on the scale for the first time since before Thanksgiving and I have gained 6 pounds.
barf. I am so irritated but I honestly haven't worked out at AT ALL and I have been shoving my face with everything I could get my hands on! Today I just feel gross and I am craving some veggies and water! I just feel like I need to detox BIG TIME. So I'm going to drink 2 gallons of water today to get rid of all this JUNK IN MY TRUNK. Literally. . .
Before you get all "that's too much water for someone blah blah blah." I am 6 feet 1 inches tall. I am overweight and I have been salting the crap out of my food the past couple of days. I promise you my body needs WATER.
damn you eggnog. And lots of it. And I used to drink 2 gallons of water a day when I was eating healthy and losing weight so I know that my body can take it. I'm not saying that you need to drink that much. This is just for me.
So today starts day 1 of getting back on track and eating right and exercising. I am done with shoving my face and I want to lose 30 pounds by the summer. I can do this! Hard work people! So I'm going to start doing a weigh-in-Friday! I'm actually going to post my weight and all the juicy details. I'm going to measure myself for the first time and see how many inches I lose because I know the scale can be a liar sometimes.
1. Lose 3o pounds.
2. Weigh-in EVERY Friday (no matter the outcome) and have you guys keep me accountable.
3. Go to the gym 5 times a week.
4. Do 1 plank a day for as long as I can. I was doing so well with this and then I just gave up. My goal is to do a 5 minute plank.
5. BE HAPPY. :)
My plan as far as eating goes will be to drink my fruit and veggie smoothie for breakfast. (I like the green smoothies)
Eat salad for lunch each day. My plan is to get a box of salad (I like mixed greens) and eat A BIG salad for lunch. I need to find a good fat-free salad dressing. I love Italian/vinegary dressings... any suggestions on a good brand?
For dinner will typically be grilled or baked chicken, some sort of veggie, and some sort of carb.
Snack will be a veggie, cheese, or crackers.
NO DESSERTS. I have the BIGGEST sweet tooth but today I don't even want to LOOK at sweet stuff (I'm sure this will change in a couple days.)
Nothing to drink but water and coffee!
Will you guys keep me accountable? Jonathan on board so I will have that accountability at home but 30 pounds is a lot and I need all the help I can get!
