Monday Milestones

Hello Divas,

Sooo its that time again.  Time for my Monday Milestones post.  I missed it a couple of week but I am back at it now.

So I will be using my new years goals for this post and will possible be making some new goals this week.

So my goals and the results for last week are as follows:

1. Track my food intake DAILY!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • This was an EPIC FAIL.  I cant seem to write things as I eat them.  I am not sure why this is sooooo hard for me but I am making a consious effort to change this.

2. Drink at least 100 oz of water daily!!
  • Yet another EPIC FAIL!!!!!! I have been slack with my water intake and it showed at my weigh ins last week. But I am back on track and getting my H2O on.
3. Exercise at least 3 times a week for at least 30 min.
  • EPIC FAILURE!!!!!!ok so this was not really an epic failure. I exercised two times last week but got busy on the weekend and missed my last work out.  I started this week off right with a 30 min walking video.
4. Blog more consistently ( i know this is not weight loss related but my blog keeps me accountable so it counts)
  • Getting much better but still not as consistant as I would like.
5. Stop Making excuses
  • Clearly you can see that has not happened. LOL  But all I can do is see where I am doing wrong and try to make a change.
So divas how was your last week.  Hope it was better than mine.  Make sure to stick to your goals and STOP MAKING EXCUSES!!! That was for me!!

Peace and Blessings.

BYOC- Bring Your Own Crazy

The lovely Draz over at It's just Me, Drazil, & Sheniqua posted a BYOC for the new year.

And since I am trying to keep my blogg beefy I will participate. 

So here goes.

Yup, Bring Your Own Crazy returns! It is 5 little questions you can answer in your own blog to give your blogging brain a break and to get to know each other better.

Copy, paste and enjoy!

Let’s do a holiday/new year themed BYOC today!

1. How do you feel about NY resolutions? Do you make them? Do you forget about them quickly? Do they help you?

In the past I always made resoulutions to lose the weight that was holding me down, and that shiz never happened. But last year I didn't make any and I finally lost the weight. Go figure. 

This year I set some goals for myself and I am sure that now that I well into my weight loss journey I will accomplish them.  I also set some other personal goals I hope to acheive as well.
2. Did you put up a Christmas tree? How many? Is it still up?

 I did put up a tree. Its the same tree we put up every year at my mom's house. I love it.  And yes that sucka is still up.  My step-daughter went home for Christmas so we left it up untill she got back. Now we are just too lazy to take it down.   

3. How many total Christmases did you choose to have to attend outside of your home?

One. We always go to my graandmothers house.  But last Christams..... I was in my husbands home town and we went to 7 yes 7 fucking Christamses. I was too pissed.  We will never do that again.
4. What are you most looking forward to this year?

I am looking forward to reaching my goal weight and getting pregnant.  I know, I know. I really want to start my family and this seems like the time to do it.  Hopefully I can make us a baby this year.
5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in real life and in blogland this week.

In real life I am working working working. I have 2 jobs and that amounts to no days off ususally. But its all good when the checks roll in.

In blogland I am happy to say that I am getting back to posting regularly and really enjoying my new youtube channel.  Check me out.  My name is CurvyDiva3 (of course!!!!)

Peace and Blessings

FMM: Goals for 2012

  • I will make a valient effort to track everything that I eat DAILY!!! I have a real problem with writing down what I eat on the day that I eat it.  Then I run into problems remembering what I ate 3-4 days ago. 
  •  I will work to loose 3 pounds per week.  I know I capable of this and I will make every effort to make sure that this happens consistently. 
  •  I WILL exercise at least 3 times a week for at least 30 min.  This is sooooo stinking hard because I loathe exercising.  But such is life. If I don't mova I won't loosa!!! lol
  • I will drink at leat 100 oz of water per day. I know that shounds like a lot but because of my bladder disease and my begining weight this is a very doable number for me.
  • I will stop making excuses for myself and my bad behavior.
These are my goals for the new year. I WILL accomplish them. I am very detemined to reach my goal weight before middle of this year.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year Divas!
I am so excited for the new year and the new opportunities that are being presented as a result of this new year. I have decided to make some goals, not resolutions, in regards to my weight loss journey to help keep me on track and focused during the year.

My goals are as follows (with motivation pics included for your viewing pleasure):

1. Track my food intake DAILY!!!!!!!!!!!!

2. Drink at least 100 oz of water daily!!

3. Exercise at least 3 times a week for at least 30 min.

 4. Blog more consistently ( i know this is not weight loss related but my blog keeps me accountable so it counts)

 5. Stop Making excuses

I hope you divas are making your goals for the new year and taking advantage of the new beginning that this year has brought about.  

As a little bonus I recorded my very first weight loss vlog and plan to keep it going along with my blog. Here it is for your viewing pleasure.

As always Peace and Blessings.
