I've Got a Goal!

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

So today is my 8 year anniversary with my sweet and patient husband!  It is hard to believe that it's been 8 years, especially because we started out as friends at 5 years old...

Sorry for the poor quality, but what do you expect from a McDonald's birthday party 25 years ago?

To celebrate our anniversary, his Birthday, my Birthday in January and the next four Christmas' we are going on a spontaneous trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico!

I am so excited, I can't even begin to tell you!  We are going with a few other couples and this will be our first trip with no kids!

So you are probably wondering what on earth this has to do with me having a goal...I only have 2 months to get in phenomenal shape!  Okay, phenomenal shape may be out of the question...but a healthy weight and healthy lifestyle change would be a great start.

I am so disappointed with myself because I worked out like crazy after having my second child and was in the best shape of my life and then the last two years I have slowly gotten back to where I started from.  One of the main reasons could be that I have a major addition to CANDY!  Anything sour or sweet will be gone at my house in about 5 seconds!

candy, health, losing weight

It is no joke, I am seriously drooling over that picture right now!

So I am telling you all today in hopes that you will help hold me accountable to my new path to health.

Here is my current plan:

1.  I am tracking my calories on Slim Kicker.  I am not a good dieter, I do so much better allowing myself to still eat what I want, but control my portions and calories throughout the day.

2.  I got a gym membership to a gym that is about .2 seconds from my work and have started going on my lunch break I am so sorry to all my co-workers who have to be around me when I return.

3.  I started doing my Insanity workout again.  I cannot commit to 6 days a week of insanity, but I am hoping to at least do 3.

My ultimate goal is that when September rolls around that I will be laying by this pool without a care in the world, even if I haven't lost the weight, but I really hope by spilling my plans to you all that I will be laying there with a sense of accomplishment.

Anyone else on a journey to get healthy?
