Pictures of New Year’s Eve 2007… (please ignore the pudgy face eeeek!!!!)
I am back and feeling fab! My phone is fixed (after an annoying AT&T visit), PB is coming here for new year’s, i’ll have my car back, and it is snowing a glorious snow outside!
Oh, and I am so insanely motivated to feel good and healthy! I started off my day with a packed, calorie-dense breakfast. I didn’t really have dinner last night and I was famished when I got up. Plus, I have a busy day at work ahead of me, so this was the way to go!
I had a light multigrain english muffin with 2 tbs pb and 1 tbs grape jelly plus a huge banana all sliced up. I feel perfectly full and energized right now. I am now enjoying a big mug of tea in my travel mug as well as lots of water.
From now on I am going to post my daily goals here too; I think it will motivate me to get into shape.
Something I have noticed is that as I get closer and closer to reaching my goals it becomes much harder to reach them. It was much easier to lose those 20+ lbs over the last few years than it is to lose 5 now. I guess when your body has less to lose it wants you to work harder to lose it! So it is time I work harder.
Today’s personal goals:
1. Drink 2 full large Smart water bottles at work today. I need to hydrate better, and I feel so dehydrated!
2. Stick to tonight’s meal plan. My aunt is having us over for New Year’s Eve like every year and they make lots of yummy food, both healthy and not. Tonight I will focus on only the healthy… 75% veggies, 15% protein, and 10% drinks and little tastes. No more than 3 drinks tonight, and they will be low-cal options.
3. Get in some form of exercise… hopefully with a ride to the gym by PB if he gets here in time?
In other news… no real wedding planning going on this week…. I am working on the day of itinerary and on other random things, but we are kind of taking a 2 week break. We needed it!!!!! I hope to check out some furniture this weekend for our condo and maybe shop for a few dresses.
Also, help! We are going to a wedding in California next weekend and the dress code is semi-formal. What does this mean?!?!?!?! No long dress?!??! I was deciding between 3 long dresses but I feel like I need to find a shorter one now? ideas?
P.S. Here is my post from last year
