Some things to keep my butt on track!
A few things I want to be able to do!

  • Where a sexy one-peice swim suit  (instead of the swim suit with a skirt that I currently wear to cover my big hips and even bigger butt) on my 10th Anniversary Trip with my hubby to Jamaica in June 2010.

  • Be comfortable walking the beaches of Jamaica (June 2011) in my swim suit.

  • Run a Marathon! (Before I turn 35!)

  • Walk the stairs and not be out of breathe. Currently, by the time I get to the top of one flight of stairs in my house my heart is racing and I have to catch my breathe. (I have a three story house! )

  • Wear size 14, then size 12, then size 10! AND SO ON.... (Just look at the possibilities!)

  • Have a flat stomach again! (Maybe even a six pack like in high school!)

  • Wear high boots! (Right now my calves are too thick.)

  • Wear sexy high heels! (Right now, I'd probably just break them because of my weight, plus they kill my feet after just 5 minutes!!)

  • Feel good about myself! Right now I can't sat that I hate myself, but I can't say that I am too pleased with myself either. I look in the mirror and see the muffin top... .  I try on that pair of jeans that I used to fit in, still can't zip them up.... I go shopping for something new, to find that I have to buy a bigger size... I know I'll never be runway ready, but to look in the mirror and see the curves (not the flab) would be so 

My plan to get there:

  1. Exercise 4-5x a week. 
    • Do Something! (Walk, run, clean the garage, mow the lawn, chase the kids in a game of tag, workout to a DVD, have some fun with my hubby (oh-la-la). Just get my body moving.)
  2. Eat healthier.
    • Keep track of my point through the Weight Watchers program.
    • Eat more fresh fruits and vegetables.
    • Make healthier choices for the foods I love. (Like enchiladas and chimichangas!)
    • Be mindful of my portions. 
    • Not use food as a 'reward' or punishment.
    • Limit eating out.
  3. Find an accountability partner.
    • I like food! There is no lie about it. I will find someone I can talk to about my eating habits, a friend I can check in with and be accountable to.
    • I will ask myself if I am eating because I am hungry, bored, stressed, worried, etc. 
      • I am an emotional eater. I will eat when I am hungry, not just because I can.
