Starting the Monday after Thanksgiving :), I aim to lose 25 pounds.
My ideal, healthy weight is 120 – 125, I am now approximately 150.
25 pounds thats about 5 bags potatoes I’m carrying around on a daily basis!!
It’s not good for my heart, my joints or any of my other vital organs…not to mention none of my jeans fit very well anymore.
I’m going to give myself about 8 wks to meet my goal.
I somehow think this is totally unrealistic for me as I do love food and have as of yet not learned to push my plate away! This is also the first time I’ve tried to lose weight.
I have a desk job which requires I sit for most of my day, my children are older and more independent, and don’t need me to play with them outside or take them for walks anymore I just haven’t been as active as I used to be.
I love yoga so that is definitely on my list, and as most of you know I like the odd glass of wine now and then 🙂 so I’ll have to cut that out…maybe just cut down a bit, summer is over so this should be easier.
My girlfriends and I had started going to “the gym” earlier this year, then we all became too busy over the summer, so I think this is something we/I should start again, and at “the gym” they have a “Hypervibe” machine which I love, you just stand there and get jiggled around for about 10 minutes and it’s equivalent to a 60 minute workout!!
I am also going to make an effort to make sure I fit excercise into my day everyday, which I have obviously not been making time for.
I have one week to prepare and I’ll be able to indulge over the Thanksgiving weekend and..
start fresh on Monday.
