Do you realize that we are 1/12 of the way through this new year already?
At the end of each month I like to review my goals for the year.
I made a goal to not eat any seconds for the year. Along with that I didn't want to take larger portions (to make up for the lack of seconds) and only have two snacks a day. Well, things have backfired on me a bit and I've gained some weight since the new year. Not that I've totally bombed on my goal but I need to change the foods I'm eating...not just how much I'm eating.
So...this morning for breakfast I had a smoothie and this was my lunch...
For dinner we had Little Ceasar's pizza. I allowed myself one piece of pizza and 2 bread sticks.
Last year I had a goal to weigh 130 by my birthday (April) and I did it! I would like to weigh the same for my birthday this year and maintain it for the marathon (June) and then for the rest of the year. Maybe a little lofty, but doable I think. That means as of this morning, I need to lose 16 pounds.
I hope no one minds if I use this blog for accountability. I'll keep you posted.
I wanted to mention this blog that I saw for the first time this morning. Mom, maybe you better not look...it's a sad story, but this wife and mother is incredible and will make it through.
Her story really touched me. So if you don't mind shedding a few tears, have a peek and join with me in sending prayers her way to Australia.
