Starting over...Sort Of/HYC check in

This one is going to be short. I have adjusted my ticker to reflect today's weigh in...217.6 and my new goal weight of 165 down from 175. Yup I am up from my last weigh in, but its a whole new year from the last one. My hope is that over the next 6 months I can lose about 35 pounds or so. I know hat may seem low to some, but I am factoring in those lovely plateaus that haunt us as well as the lovely TOM that some how leads me to the nearest candy shop. Not to mention that last time I was 165, 1999, I was about 17% body fat...I was a lean mean cheer leading machine!

I guess this year I am still on my path, yet trying to be more realistic about my lost so as to not set myself up for failure. I mean if I only lost a pound a week I can hit 165 in 52 weeks aka 1 year. I am exhausted I just came off vacation last night, got home and unpacked around 2am and worked 10 hours it is beddybie for me folks.

Quote of the week

So I figured that I should actually update my "Quote of the week" this week. I found this on a stone and thought it was a great one to start off 2009.

"Life isn't about finding yourself. It's about creating yourself."

What do you think about this one?

New Years Promises Revisited

So the other day I listed my promises that I had made to myself for my health. Today I got to thinking and I decided to make so personal promises to myself as well. I could have kept them to my self, but that would only leave me to keep me accountable and that doesn't work for my fitness so why should I think its going to work for anything else. So I decided to share them with you all and that way if you ever care to you can check me on how I am doing with my health, financial and personal promises. So here they are the 20 promises I am making to my self. All of my health goals are daily, and my financial and personal goals have a timeline attached to them.

1) I will work out at least 3 days a week for at least 30 minutes.
2) I will eat 5-6 small meals a day.
3) I will eat no more than 1600 calories in a day.
4) I will log my food and exercise on everyday.
5) I will log my weight (loss or gain) every Monday.
6) I will sleep at least 7 hours a night.
7) I will not allow work functions to be a reason to go off plan.
8) I will not celebrate with food.
9) I will not allow stress to get in my way.
10) I will not make excuses!

Personal & Financial
1) I will read my bible for at east 15 minutes everyday (daily)

3) I will become more organized (on going)
4) I will make time for my cousin Edric to be in my life (next visit to Florida)
5) I will hug my father (next visit to Washington)
6) I will call my grandmother Edna at least one time per week (weekly)
