Change is Coming

With the new year comes New Years resolutions. I have never been been big on New Years resolutions. I am not really sure why but I have never really set a serious New Years resolution. This year is no different. My goal to lose weight and get healthier is still the same, nothing magically changed because it was January 1, 2011. Over the holidays though I did realize I need to step it up and make some changes. It really has hit me how close my wedding is. I'll be a Mrs. in 4 months 2 weeks and 2 days (not that I'm counting)!

Of course I want to be smaller and look amazing in my dress when I walk down the aisle. Also if I can not get the motivation together to lose weight for my wedding then when will I be able to?  So I need to change something to get real results. I am sick of the numbers on the scale yo-yoing every week. I am still contemplating what changes I need exactly. So far this is what I'm thinking.

1. I am sticking with the Weight Watchers plan and still logging all my food and exercise.

2. I will start going to Weight Watchers meetings again. I just need to figure out what day and time will work best for me.

3. I am going to take a month off from recording my weigh-ins on the blog. I don't want to keep saying on here that I am going to lose weight and then it not happening, or at least not happening consistently enough.  I feel like I need the next 4 weeks to prove it to myself that I can do this. I want to do it for myself and not because people are going to be able to see my weigh-ins. After a month though I will share my progress. Also right now I'm going into my craziest time at work. With work, wedding planning, working out, and Duke basketball season in full swing (seriously I love going to the games but it's time consuming) I do not want to commit to posting on any particular day of the week consistently.

4. I will work out a total of at least 5 days a week getting an hour of cardio in. I will work out a 6th day but that workout can be 30 minutes if needed (when I need to do lunch time workouts).


  1. This sounds like a solid plan. My weight changes like 3 times a day (there is a scale in the bathroom at work) so doing it for the month is probably a good idea. Good luck!

  2. wow where has the time gone. Love the new page look. I think your goals are great. I can't belive you are so close to the alter. YAY!! I know you are excited.

    No thins no matter what on that day you will be the most beautiful person there.

    Keep it up and good luck!

  3. Completely understandable ... it's a busy month+ for you J! Good luck with, everything, well except Duke basketball :)
