Merry Christmas to me!

Look at this gorgeous Christmas gift I got from my husband. The gift that keeps on giving ;)

I got this today with the intention of being 2 weeks ahead of the new years resolutioners. Those people I used to despise when I worked out 7 days a week. Every year on January 1st there wasn't an open treadmill to be found for the next 3 months.

I start tomorrow at 8:30am with a personal coach I will have for 8 weeks. I'm psyched. I feel better than I have felt in a very long time except for the fact that I'm still lugging around and extra friends worth of weight. I can do this. I can stick to it and next year at this time, be 100 pounds lighter.

I'm starting over once again. This time I'm in a really good place. I even gave my blog a temporary makeover.

Stay tuned for a new years post I'm working on. There will be pictures and there will be a fun calorie plan for the year. In the meantime, I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the last few days before Christmas! Happy Holidays everyone!!

40 is the new black

I turned 40 on Tuesday and while I'm nowhere near reaching my goal of having lost 100 pounds by this time, I still feel young, cool and nowhere near my age ;)

My goal for this new chapter in my life is simply to put into practice everything I've learned up to this point. I've gained so much knowledge about myself both personally and professionally. I'm completely out of excuses. I never thought I would say that.

This weekend is going to be freezing and wet and my goal is to go through all my recipes and plan meals for a month. Then it's on to the kitchen cabinets to clean out anything scary that's in there. Even though I do a pretty good job of keeping them neat, if there are 10 year old chocolate chips in there I will find them when I need fix. I've already done the fridge and it looks very bare. Good thing because it will quickly fill up with homemade soup on Sunday.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!!

I need an ass kicking

I'm doing that thing. That horrible thing where you start to tell yourself you are going to start over again in January. I can't believe I even have these thoughts after all I've learned. I'm just glad I'm aware when I'm trying to talk myself into something stupid and can run to my blog for sanity.

I've been working so much at the computer and I'm still having problems getting motivated to move. My eating schedule is all messed up. I don't eat enough during the day and am starving by 6:00. Usually my husband is motivating me but he's in the same funk. We have never been at that point at the same time before and it's making it even more difficult!

I'm not going to whine about it anymore. I'm going to go eat some turkey soup and then at least walk the dogs. I think it's time to dust off some weights.
