69 Days and Counting...

Fat Girl Slimmed did a post last week when there was exactly 69 days until the one year anniversary of our blog. There are fewer days now (only 60, how crazy is that?!), but here's my version of that post...

What's the one thing I want more than anything? To lose weight. So that's my first goal.

I want to weigh 155 pounds

Now, this isn't my goal weight, and it's not even an ambitious 2 pound a week loss. It's 10 pounds less than I weight right now, and about a 1.2 pound per week loss. Am I not aiming high enough? I don't think so. I think I'm being realistic in looking at the way my body works. I just DO NOT drop weight fast. I just don't. So why set myself up for failure when I have a chance at feeling a real sense of accomplishment? And if I do lose more? Right on!!!

I want to get back to eating healthfully

If you've read this blog for awhile you know that we are huge proponents of the green smoothie. Yeah, guess how long it's been since I had one? I am going to include at least one fruit or vegetable in every single meal and snack that I have. That's right, even my snacks.

I want to workout every single day

It's not that I want to overdo it. I'm not talking balls-to-the-wall every day. But your body was made to move. And that's what I'm going to do. I plan on having 5-6 days with "real" workouts - running, weights, what not - and 1 or 2 days where I do something nice and easy like going for a long walk or doing some relaxing yoga for flexibility.

So, what would like to accomplish in the next 60 days???

And just so you know, comments = mad love. We can't get enough of them!!!


  1. I would like to workout at least 5 days each week. With a young child and a fulltime job I find it hard to find a place in my day to do it. BUT, I seem to have mastered what to I need to master how often to MOVE!!! Your girls are inspiring me....keep it up and I might just take some measurements!!!
