Well I think 24 lbs in a big challenge for me to take on when I'm trying to get into better habits. So instead of 24lbs by the end of August I am cutting it back to 10. If I go over great! If it's right at 10, thats great too! I get discouraged easily and setting huge goals for myself will cause me to fail. So the small goal of 10lbs I can definetely make!!! My mini goals are whats important right now. Getting at least 8 glasses of water drank a day, Exercising (slowly getting into the habit of a little a day) ,journaling daily on SP (sparkpeople), getting more veggies, fruits and dairy. Other than with my cereal, I do not drink milk often. When I was pregnant I kept up the 3 servings since I was diabetic and I really hate that I slacked off. So that is one of my major mini goals. Getting back up to 3 servings!
The exercising is rough for me, I was never one to exercise. Today I planned on getting up early. It rained here, so lets just say it didn't happen ;) I listen to music while sitting at the computer though and I put on some fun songs and tried to get Tally to dance with me. She just looked at me like I was crazy... already getting the embarassing mom looks...LOL Going to try and do that for 5 mins at a time for a while. Should be able to add up pretty quick to get 15-20 mins in over the day. That will at least hopefully get me ready for more of a routine soon!
Well I'm going to try and get some scrapping done now, I need to get busy! Matt has a meeting tonight and I'm thinking that we are having sandwiches/soup again because I had a chinese lunch and should probably stick to low calorie food for this evening instead of a big dinner!
