Guess What I'm Doing

Yo Yo Yo! How is 2011 treatin' ya?

I hope you are doing well. Did you make any resolutions? How are ya doing on those ya made?

I made one, its actually not for New Years...I just have been wanting to do it and I figured now is as good a time as any! I am jumping on the diet bandwagon.

I have really put on weight, and I look and feel disgusting. So I decided now is the time to try to fix that. I started my so called diet yesterday. I don't really have any strict diet planned out, I'm playing it by ear. I'm basically cutting out a lot of junk I eat, and trying smaller portions of things. Instead of chips, I eat a banana. Instead of pizza for lunch I'll have a salad... I'm also exercising more. Heck, 1 single push up is more then I've done in years, I have not been an exerciser...hence why I'm a fat cow now. This isn't probably the greatest weight loss plan, but its so much better than what I have been doing.

Yesterday I hooked up the wii fit, and did an hours worth of exercise on that. Today I did another hour of the wii fit, and also 15 minutes on the treadmill. I thought treadmill would be easy, its just walking...I was hoping to text and tread, to keep myself busy. LOL what was I thinking? I was hanging on for dear life! I clicked the weight loss program on the treadmill and off I went...started out rather slow, I thought this is nothing. Yeah sure. Soon it beeped, and inclined. Ummm wait, I didn't plan on this! Next thing I know it increases speed! WHOA! Slow down buckaroo! I'm a treading virgin! Easy pleasy. The timer was set for 30 minutes, but after 15 I quit for the day. Baby steps. Tomorrow I'll try again, hopefully go a little longer...

I haven't had any pop since Friday evening. This is very hard for me. I'm not going to cut it out all together, but I am going to drink much less of it. I need to drink more water. People, let me tell you...water sucks! I'm not a fan. But I'm trying.

I have no idea how much weight I want to lose yet. I guess I'd LOVE to lose 100 lbs...give or take a few. I want to go to Walmart or Target and just grab something cute off the rack to wear, instead of finding a ginormous size in the womens section. I want to look good, wear fun cute things.

Today I am sore from my work outs, missing my cokes, and a little bitchy... But...I know if I can follow through with this, I'll be happier and healthier in the long run. Wish me luck.

Please be my cheerleaders. Help me accomplish this!

Anyone wanna place a bet as to how long I'll last?

QOTD: How did you spend New Years Eve?

You can do it, girl!!! If you need any support, info, advice, tips, or just a place to vent - you know you can always run on over to my blog. ;) I've also posted some new links to some sites that I'm a member of that have been a great help during my weight loss.

I've been thinking about yoga. Or even hot yoga. I've heard that it's great excersize that's quite enjoyable! Good Luck with the soda thing, I'm not that brave yet.

You can do it, Renee! I'm rooting for you. I would love to kick the soda habit but I am like you, I don't like water.

Amanda said...

You CAN DO IT!!!! I know you can. I am right there with you girl(as in, I consider myself a fat cow as well!)... and every little bit helps!

Be blessed-

I believe in you Renee. Don't overdo on the up a bit slower so you don't injure yourself. Be in it for the long run cause it took a long time to put on the weight and it won't go away fast.
I'm working on it too! Love you,
