Quick post... Get Healthy Challenge!

Sara Carling, One of the designers I create LO's for is having a Get Healthy Challenge on her blog. I've ignored my weight loss plan for to long! I need to get back into it. I have never been a small lady, ever! There is no way I'm putting my weight on here either but to be where I want to be in general, will be another 50lbs total! That will be years from now though. I missed yesterday so today I am posting today and yesterdays challenge. My goal is 20lbs by the end of August.That gives me more than 2 months to work myself down to a good weight. My reward is to start trying to conceive baby #2. Sounds like a silly reward in a way but that is what I want for myself! Since I started this in the afternoon after already having some not so good things for me this morning, I am going to start right NOW! No more junk food, that isn't measured and accounted for within my Weight Watchers points. I will calculate my points every night into my Points Tracker. (Haven't done that in months) Work out for at least 15 mins, at least 4 days a week! More if I can!! I think 4 days is reasonable for me. There are many days I get out and am not home for most of the day plus Tally will not allow me to work out with her around. Those with kids know exactly what I'm talking about ;)

Todays challenge is 32 ozs of water before my diet pepsi and 32 ozs of water after (before bedtime) Ok again, I started this late! So I have already had a small dp! So I am going to drink 32 oz of water now and again after dinner. I plan of making some decaf tea sweetened with splenda to drink mostly during the other times and putting a pitcher of water in the fridge also. I HATE warm water, even with ice in it... yuck!! Now I still need my caffeine everyday but I am limiting myself to one glass. This may help with my sleep problems.

So that's it for now, I might post again with an update on how the rest of my day went! TTFN!
