Weigh In Monday

The scale said: 145.6

I wanted to go ahead and post beginning measurements today but BOTH of my little tape measures are missing. The kids think they are fun toys:)
My eating is going pretty well. I did great yesterday until I took the girls swimming over my mother-in-laws and even though I wrote in my journal and told myself I was only going to eat 1/2 sandwich and garden veggies and not chips and dessert, guess what I ate, Sandwich, veggies and also too many chips and a small ice cream cone. I know I can't deprive myself of things and I don't plan on it but, it seems every time I allow myself something unhealthy I totally get off track eating. So for now going to try to limit sweets and high fat foods.

My Exercise Goals for this Week:

Mon- Run 3 miles (I ran 2.8miles)
Tue- Run 40 minutes
Wed - Jillian Michael's 30 day shred Level 2
Thur- Run 40 minutes
Fri- Level 2 30 day shred
Sat- Run 4 miles
Sun- Level 2 30 day shred

This is going to be tough but finishing that 4 miles will feel so great! That will be longest distance I have ever run. What are your exercise goals for the week?

On my way to fitness

Hello, I'm a Stay at home momma of 5. This blog is going to be about my journey becoming as fit and healthy as I can be. I have always been a yo yo dieter and was never a faithful exerciser. It was never at the top of my to do list. This summer I have started running and am now up to 3 miles 3-4 days per week but still the scale is stuck in the 140's because I have yet to change my emotional eating, and unhealthy eating. This is why I have created this blog. To hold me accountable for my eating. I don't want to just go on diet to get to a specific number and then quit as I've always done in the past. This time I'm making a lifestyle change for good.

My plan: Eat as healthy as possible. Whole grains, lots fruits/veggies, lower fat (Ya know)and little processed or boxed food.

Eat only when I am hungry and only to normal fullness

Pre plan meals and snacks daily and keep food journal.

I hate I mean HATE counting calories and fat grams so I am going to try not doing so for 2 weeks and see what the results are.

Exercise Plan:

Run 4 days per week and do wt training with aerobics 3 days per week. That means exercise EVERYDAY and no skipping.

Weigh in every Monday morning and post with measurements 1st Monday of the month.

My first goal is to fit in my size 8 jeans by October 1st.

Won't you join me on this journey to a more healthy and fit you? If you hold me accountable I'll do the same for you:)
