Recently I uploaded some pictures from my birthday party in March. My first thought was, "I really like my new shirt!" Which was followed by a more 'surprising' thought, "but man do I look fat!" Omg I did not just think that, but unfortunately as I peered at the photo a little more, I realized that it was true. I had gained weight yet again.
Who's fault is this weight gain, well none other than yours truly, I mean I can't really blame anyone else, I ate the food, I stopped the exercise program, I did all that, no one else, so I am the one who is to blame. Yup that was me.
I haven't stepped on a scale to see how much I weigh I really don't need the scale to be taunting me as well, I do a good enough job at that as it is already. But it has definitely lit a fire under my ass, I mean I don't want to be the fat mom, I want to be the healthy has lot's of energy, and hey my mom looks good mom. I don't expect to have changes over night, I know this is an arduous battle, I have been in this spot before, about 18 months ago actually, and I am here again, so now I know I need to make a change.
I am going to talk to my doctor about it at my next appointment, I mean the weight gain is a little surprising I didn't feel I was being that negligent on my eating habits, maybe a little, but not to this extreme. So I want to rule out any medical reason for the weight gain, then I am going to "diet". But not really diet, I am going to track my food intake and I will post weekly results here, to keep me on track. I don't know who all reads this but I don't want to be eating crap and having you all judge me for it. And I am going to exercise every day, so when I post my weekly food log, you will also see my weekly exercise log. And my total earnings that I am going to reward myself with.
So the plan is this, for every day I am within 200 calories +/- my daily caloric intake of 1400 I get $2. For every day that do at least 30 minutes of cardio exercise I get $1 and for every day that I do 30 minutes of strength toning exercises I get $1. So I can potentially earn $4 a day. This will go for 6 weeks. At the end of 6 weeks we will check our progress and go from there. This will start tomorrow so tomorrow I will measure and weigh myself then post the results here. Not the weight, I will just post my % lost after on each weeks update.
Ok here we go 6 weeks to a new me!!!!
