New Challange

Ive decided to join a weightloss challange! GULP.

I do not have an addictive personality so for me to stay on track is sometimes hard. I go gungho for a week or so then it peters off to something else that has my attention... something like decorating.... or food.... or couponing..... or decorating.....or organizing...... or weightloss? Weightloss??... what weightloss????

So heres the deal, Ive joined Everyday mom of one. Hopefully I can stay on track and I can lose alittle weight that Ive gained. If you want to join us just click on her link and head over to see the details. Its very simply and easy. Nothing hard or confusing. Which is perfect for lil' ole me!

Let me know if you join us on this journey :)

Start Date: Monday April 6th

Current Weight =158 (fully clothed, and just ate breakfast)

1st Goal = 153

Date to Reach 1st Goal = April 20th

Goal for this week = Walk 10,000 steps each day with pedometer. whether its steps from walking, riding exercise bike or whatever as long as it reads 10,000 for that day.

Drink min. two water bottles daily. I really dont like water. I hardly ever drink it. But when I do drink water I lose weight. So 2 water bottles daily min. is a great feat for me. :)

My mom gave me her ab lounger so I'll be doing 80 crunches daily also.

I LOVE this pedometer. Works great. Bought it from Costco online awhile ago. I just dug it out and its battery is dead so I'll be buying one today.

My super duper fancy camera should be delievered today. OHHHH, I hope so, so I'll be taking pictures. I might even take a picture of myself. Gulp again. I really dont like my picture taken but it might be a good incentive to stay on track :)

Good for you! I have to tell you, though, I've never heard anyone say that NOT having an addictive personality being a bad thing :). It sounds like you have a great plan. Good luck - just stay with it, and if you have a bad day, start fresh the next day. I'm excited for you!

P.S. I love the new blog layout.

Hope you are feeling better by now.....I still have the sinus yuckies too!

Blessings on your weight loss! Have a great Tuesday!

I came over from visiting Elizabeth's blog. I noticed your comment about the stack overload thingie problem. I also had that problem when she first changed her background to the one she has now. I had to do the same thing you described. I ended up not visiting her blog for awhile. Actually today was the first time since then. I forgot that as I was reading all the Blue Monday posts at Smiling Sally. But today that stack overload thingie did not come up. So I don't know what the problem was or how to fix it unfortunately.

One other thing I noticed. The other commenter was from California. You are from California and I am from California. Hmmm....I wonder if that has anything to do with it......Nah probably not. I hope the problem clears up for you too.

Hi Ellie, Thanks for your visit! Good luck on your weight loss. I need to start watching what I eat and excersize too. It's so hard! I see you have twin boys, good looking ones btw. I have a friend who just had twins, boy and girl. She's not getting alot of sleep, I'm sure you remember those days. Have a great week! Kristen
