Extreme Makeover Me Edition!

Well, here it is Wednesday again. Time for EMME! If you'd like to join go visit Amber to learn all about it!

I actually didn't blow it too bad on Easter. I've never cared a lot for chocolate, until I was prego with baby number 1. Then I totally craved it! After he was born, I still found there are times I really crave it. But other times I can do just fine without it. Easter was one of my non-chocolate craving days! Lucky for me! I did love the delicious glazed ham though, so I probably had a little more of that than I should have! I also indulged in 2 cans of caffeine free Dr. Pepper.

Besides that, I actually have been a lot better with my diet this week. I'm down a couple of pounds since last Wednesday, but was hoping to be down more (since I had gone up 4 with the previous 2 weeks slacking!)

I know exercise would have made the difference. I just haven't been able to get motivated! I don't know what my problem is. Before I was pregnant with my youngest, I was up to jogging 5 miles 6x a week! Now I can't even seem to get my butt on the treadmill for a measley 3 miles of walking!

I did see some really FAT pictures of myself at last year's family reunion, and thought GAG! I know I have lost weight since then, but still would like to lose a significant amount more before the reunion this year in August!

So to get back on track: This week I WILL: Walk on the treadmill every day for 1 hour (Sunday off), Continue drinking lots of water, and make a determined effort not to "graze" from the food I make for my kids, and strictly stick to my own food!

Wish me luck!

Oh the roller coaster of dieting! When will we ever be able to look at pics of ourselves and say hey I look good?!

Jen said...

Ah, the yummy glazed ham! I had a lot of that AND chocolate :-) Each day is a new day, and AMEN to not grazing from the kids' food - that is SO hard...

Amy said...

I know you can do it. Yeah to you.

Alicia @ boylerpf said...

"Keep on keepin on" as the saying goes. Loved your phrase about grazing!!

Vivienne said...

How jealous am I that you don't like chocolate?! What I wouldn't give for that preference at least 3times a year!

5 miles a day? 30 miles a week? Maniac! You absolutely can do what you laid out to get "back on track."

Most important: When are you going to tell us the year of your prom picture? :)

Good plan! I never used to care for chocolate either, but now I do for some reason. Although it has to be dark.

Good for you for losing!

XOXO

Good for you!!! You did WAY better than I did!

Ryan Ashley Scott said...

I think your plans for this week are reasonable goals. Goals that most of us could do well by following. You can do it!

Staci said...

great job on the loss!! woohoo! I need to get my butt on my elliptical... like NOW! Have a great week!

Jennifer said...

One hour a day for 6 days is a big goal mama! I hope you have the treadmill at your house. I go the gym 4 times a week and give it all I've got while I'm there....but can't commit to 6 days...not with kiddos. Good luck. You can do it!

Tanielle said...

Good job on the weight loss my dear friend!!!

NKOTBV09!!!!:-)

Connie Weiss said...

Excellent job with the weight loss! I think you may be the only one of us that didn't indulge in the candy!

Great plan! Have a great week!

I think you're doing great! Keep up the good work. BTW, Dr. Pepper is my weakness...seriously, sometimes I feel I just can't live without it. The sweet nectar of life, as my nephew calls it, and I have to agree with him!

Thanks for your sweet comment. I can always count on my super duper bloggy friends to come to the rescue when I need lifting!

Heidi @ Blue Eyed Blessings said...

You got this, girl! One day that motivation to exercise will hit you once again and there will be no stopping you! Great job on the 2 pounds...you're back on track!

Marrdy said...

I'm betting you can do it!! I have been trying since January and have really not had much success. Be my inspiration!

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

This is late in coming (been out of town), but Good luck! ;) It sounds like you're on the right track though!! Inspiring to me, anyways...I need to get my butt in gear. Coke or cafe mocha from Starbucks is my kryptonite...bad news!!
