30 Days of Hell..

Happy New Year Y'all!! 

Today it's all about jumping on the bandwagon and setting some goals. I have a hard time setting yearly goals and keeping them so I have decided to make monthly goals. 

I logged onto Instagram a few days ago and saw that one of my favorite bloggers is hosting a challenge. 

Oh boy! I have started and quit Jillian so many times it's ridiculous. So when I saw this I knew I have to do it! I have the 30 day shred video and as long as I can get my tushy out of bed in the mornings I can do this! PLUS there's a $150 prize for the person with the best results, and homegirl could definitely use $150 since I dropped a load of singles at Targets after Christmas sale. 

Goal two: Lose 10 pounds this month. According to my calorie intake I should be losing about 2 pounds a week so to get to my goal weight it will take me 42 weeks. This means by July I should be down a little over 50 pounds which will feel AMAZING! 

Goal Three: Just keep tracking! It's a day by day process and I have to live in the moment and just keep my focus. 

What are your 2014 goals? How are you going to stay motivated? 

New Year New You Planning

Took the plunge Saturday and made a big decision -- We joined a gym!

My parents told us over Christmas that we're going to Flordia in July and I immediately thought, "OH NO!"

I can not look like I do now at a beach in 7 months and be happy. I will not have pictures of my daughters first time at the beach with me being the beached whale. So it's going down! We're getting serious at this household and losing weight!!

I've been meal planning, grocery shopping, and food prepping like it's my job. I REFUSE to give up and REFUESE to fail again...

I've been finishing healthy recipes and finding some running plans because this momma is getting fit! 

 2014 will be the best year of my life! 

- I will not eat my feelings. I will not drink my calories. I will not eat junk that makes me feel like junk. I can do this and I will do this!

Toy been wastingMotivation is what I'm lacking. I have had no desire to move my lazy behind. I have had no desire to eat what I should. I have had no desire to track like I should. However as I looked in the mirror tonight I realized how tired I am of making excuses. I'm tired of going to Ned feeling like crap because of all the food I have shoveled into my mouth. I'm tired of wondering if I'm embarrassing my family by them being seen with me - an overweight obese person. I need to find what motivates me and while I'm still working on that I decided to make myself a reward chart to get me through April. My short term goal is to have lost 40 pounds by my 26th birthday. 

10 pound goal - A Ruffles with Love shirt from Etsy
20 pound goal - Join the Y here in our town
30 pound goal - complete the 24 day advocare challenge to amp up my weightloss
40 pound goal - This beautiful dress from The Zig Zag Stripe. 

I've currently been wasting $40 a month on weight watchers since I haven't been tracking or going to the meetings so I've decided to give that up and just track through My Fitness Pal. I know the key is to plan plan plan so I PLAN on doing that this week! Check back for my plan this week!
