Goals for August

Monday, August 06, 2012

Back from our mini vaca full of fun and stress and more stress. Bozo ended up with swimmer's ear during our trip and J-Bird had a belly ache a few of the days. All thankfully handled with a bottle of ear drops and a box of Children's Pepto. (and a few Margaritas for Mommy)

I have been telling myself for the past few weeks, that I HAD to wait until the kids go back to school to get back on track. Why? Well, this weekend we have a wedding and a graduation party. Next weekend, we are going camping. Weekend after, a birthday party. Why did I think September would magically erase all of the busy in our lives? I know September will be full of Labor Day picnics, birthday parties and other events. October has hay rides and bon fires and Halloween. November has Thanksgiving. Why bother watching what I eat now? Christmas, bring on the cookies! Then that will lead me to January and probably back up 20 to 30 pounds.

So here I am, August 6 and I am going to do it.

Goals for the week:

- Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water a day

- Eat around 1200 calories per day

- Eat at least 4 servings of fresh fruit/ veggies a day (I know I need to eat more than that but this is tough for me)

- do some sort of exercise at least 10 minutes a day

August goals

- eat 1200 to 1500 calories a day

- drink 10 to 12 glasses of water a day

-5 to 6 servings of fruit/ veggies

-get back to gym 3 x's a week

Short term goal

Size smaller jeans by Thanksgiving

    Everybody knows that, since 40 is the new 26, August 6th is the new January 1.

    Because of that, I shall gift you with some groundhogs.

    Those a very reasonable goals. You can absolutely do it. You're right, there is never a great time to start these things. There is always something. You just have to decide today is the day and from what I hear, we don't actually have to indulge at every single event where there is food.
