BeautifullyAmber Taking things one day at a time...
1) I’m challenging everyone to post a “BEFORE” picture here. I know, the idea scares the crap out of me, too, and I’m kind of nervous to ask my lover to take it when he gets home and yet I will! (No nudity please! =)) Personally, I might use mine as my avatar just to keep it in my face- but we’ll see how I look first! Hah!
2)I would like everyone to create a goal on their list that you think is attainable within the next two weeks or so that pertains to this goal of losing weight, eating healthier, and exercising. I understand that a lot of people have full lists but I think it’ll be necessary for us each to have our individuals on-going goals that we can mark done and celebrate!
3) Establish a food journal if you know you’re eating habits need a lot of work. Whether you keep it here, as a check-out list on your fridge, or on a website such as weighins.com, a food journal is key. We may need to only keep it a month or we may need to have it forever but it’s the only way to be honest and accountable with ourselves and it’ll serve as a great reference tool.
4) Spend some time surfing the net, reading health magazines & books or talking to your healthiest friends and family memebers to educate yourself. The more reading I do, the more matching information I get, the more tips and advice I find, the more pumped I am already!! There are a lot of great resources and if we keep ourselves consumed we’re going to stay on track! And, of course, post the good stuff here!!
I know this is a holiday weekend that is veiled in candy, chocolate and marshmellow birds and how hard it may be for some of us. All I ask is that you stay in the moment. Enjoy your children, your friends, the sunshine, the flowers… And if you have to have a peep, have one. And stop- because you’re in the moment.And in the moment, you know that that peep does not taste nearly as good as smiling in the mirror does.
