Winter Break - Yay

Yes! Yes! Yes!

I am on winter break. No work for over 2 weeks. At least no work at school with other peoples kids. I have my children to spend time with. I also want to start some better habits and hit the gym. I hope the babies take the gym day care cause I wanna go every morning like I used to before I went back to work.

I took a look back at my 101 in 1001 blog....I felt a bit disappointed in myself. I had such lofty goals. I am not quitting on the list just reflecting on it.

Laryngitis

Yes... I have laryngitis. I am home & so is hubby and the babies. Aneglina has pink eye and ear infection in one ear. Fun day for all at our house. :-)
I have been wearing my body bugg but not tracking my food. Which is not good. I will be back on track soon. I am trying to decide on a good weigh in day. One that can help me stay on track. I used to weigh in on Friday bit if my weight was down I would eat like crazy all weekend. So I aml eaning toward Sunday or Monday. Any thoughts on this would be great.

Speechless literally

The end of the year is approaching and winter break is so close. I can't wait. I plan on getting back in the gym. Right now...I am speechless literally... practically. I am losing my voice, It is no fun. But I can deal. I have 2 friends from work who have agreed to do the resolution 5k with me on jan 1st. I am very excited. I am also starting a betting pool for winter break weight loss. I wanna get every 1 to put in $10. Whoever loses the greatest % of weight wins the cash. Cool huh. I am going to bring my scale in on Friday and promote my plan for the next 2 days.

Forced Fitness

I was talking with hubby about how I feel like I do better with deadlines loomin over me. Like I made it to the gym with few excuses when I was training for my 1st 5k. I think I need that kinda pressure. SO I started looking up some 5k. Yes winter 5ks. I don't plan on running them but just walking would be enough for me. Just enough to keep me focused and feeling active.

Here is what I am thinking.
Resolution Run... Ok it'd be a walk, but I would do it just the same. January1st 2010. How cool would that be...? I think it'd be awesome if maybe my 12yo daughter and I did it together.

Hmmmm ... Caution.....

....end of the year approaching. Trying to think how I want to end the year and what I want for myself for the year to come.

2010 is 20 years from my high school graduation. My 20 year reunion is coming and I am a little nervous about it. I want to go looking good. I do not have to be a size 6, but a size 10 would be great.

I just wanna get my body back to a shape that I like. One of healthy size.... One that allows me to do more things... I wanna be fulfilled. I desire a life of purpose and meaning. Oddly no one is stopping me but me & my excuses. My lameness...my fear...my procrastination.

But 2morrow is a new day. I can turn things around and get it done. I wish I had a competition to enter. SOme way to be more accountable and take this weight loss seriously. I will work it out.

Random thoughts

I can't believe that the end of the year is so quickly approaching. I feel like I did not necessarily accomplish all that I wanted. I am back at work and trying to get my body back in2 shape. I know if you have been reading my blog then you know how I have not done so great at losing weight. I think the problem is 2fold. I really enjoy eating junk food. And I cannot stick with my workout regime.

I got the body bugg for my birthday. It has given me a good perspective on my eating. I have been very honest in logging what I eat. I really want to get to the bottom of why I overeat. I mean I just finished watching the season finale of biggest loser & I know that eating is more than just to sustain myself.

I am excited about winter break. I want to get back on the bandwagon & start honoring myself more. Taking better care of myself. Then I will feel better mentally & physically.
