Fresh Start - New Resolutions

I’m going to treat March 1st as January 1st, time for a fresh start – new resolutions.

Quote #49: If you don't dare to begin, you don't stand a chance of getting there.

I honestly can’t believe that 2 months have just slipped by and that I only lost 2.2 pounds, that is just a damn shame, but what can I do, there is no use to cry over spilled milk, I just need to get up and dust myself off and keep on truckin’.

Quote #10: Identify what you want and go for it.

There are so many things I want to accomplish in March, but the main one is that I am going to take the month off weight watchers. The flexibility that I used to love of the program is just not working for me at the moment. I am still going to be on an eating program just not weight watchers. It’s a program I came across last summer and it’s been the only program that has worked for me. The weight I lost on it, is still off.

This is what I want to accomplish in March

  1.  31 days of Sanisimo by Entrenador Jose Fernandez
    1. 3 days Ketosis
    2. 7 Days Drop a Pants Size
    3. 7 Days
    4. 7 Days Drop a Pants Size
    5. 7 Days
  2. 30 Day Shred
  3. 15,000 Steps a Day
  4. Picture a Day
  5. Dress Up every day

Quote #9: Risk a change, overcome fear and win.

This is A LOT and it stresses me out a bit to know that it is a lot to take on in one month but I think I need this right now, I've had a lot of down time all of my life. I'm a couch potato to the bone and this scares me. I would much rater be curled up in the couch reading a book, surfing the net and watching reality TV.

The voice in my head is telling me "What if it's yet another thing that I fail?" but I need to challenge myself. BUT I have to try, there are some other things going on in my life that are playing with my brain and taking up room up there that really shouldn't be. Hopefully this plan will occupy my brain and help me deal through this.

Dr. Oz’s Tangerine Weight-Orade Recipe

Dr. Oz’s Tangerine Weight-Orade Recipe…
For a powerful metabolism-boosting drink, try Dr. Oz’s Tangerine Weight-Orade. It contains: green tea, shown to boost metabolism 12% by drinking just one cup; tangerine, with a chemical composition that increases sensitivity to insulin and stimulates genes that help to burn fat; and mint, a calorie-free flavor enhancer.

In a large pitcher, combine: 8 cups of brewed green tea / 1 tangerine, sliced / A handful of mint leaves / Stir this delicious concoction up at night so all the flavors fuse together. Drink 1 pitcher daily for maximum metabolism-boosting.

I believe this might be my second resolution of the year.  I wanted to make homemade items for christmas and there are a lot of females in the family. I was thinking scarf, but this is so much easier.

a size 18 trapped in a size 16 pants

I took an unplanned sabbatical from the blog; I had a pity party, was sick and the 3 owner’s have been in the office on daily basis.  But the laptops have been fixed to catch the internet at home and the goal is to post on a daily or at least a weekly basis.

On to the reason for my pity party as it ties in to my last post. I did awesome on my game plan I tracked, made the best food choices, I walked 15,000 – 20,000 steps a day, got up early to exercise and I get to WW meeting and I had a gain of 0.2.  Yes, it’s a small gain but it was still a gain and I busted my ass off all week and I wanted to get out of the 200’s and blah blah blah that I just deflated myself. So I went on a pity party but on the very plus side that I even couldn’t go full blown gorging, I just can’t.  Yes, I made some bad food choices and I headed to the yellow hostess cupcakes as soon as I left the meeting but we all know it could have been much worse but I just couldn’t.

Then I got sick, and just totally drained. My brain wanted to get me back on track but my body just didn’t want to.  I skipped WW this past week and felt so guilty about it, but I didn’t do anything WW related and it just wasn’t worth going and spending the fee on it.  The only reason I did want to go to the meeting cuz I think I have lost some weight; my clothes are feeling so much looser and I no longer need to suck in my gut to button up my pants. I was definitely a size 18 trapped in a size 16 pants.

I’ll be at the meeting this Saturday, it will be the last weigh in for the Shrink Yo’ Self challenge and hopefully I am out of the 200’s for good.
