Ready for Big Changes

The 3rd Monday in January is shown to be the most depressing. Hmmm....I'm not a big fan of Mondays for some reason... and that is an interesting fact.  Let's change that on this day! Listen to some Happy Music, treat yourself with something fun today. Sign up for a Race!  I did....I signed up for a 10K for March 17th.  It's been a while since I ran a race and I've only done one 10K in my life, it was last year!
I'm also ready for a Big Change! I'm pretty active, I do okay at eating right. But, I have not reached my Ultimate Goal.  I need to practice better Portion Control for sure.  I'm ready to have BIG progress and all I know is that one good way to keep me motivated and going is to share it with you.  I will not let you down, I will not let myself down.  I'm ready to be in the best shape of my life.  Why not now? In my 30's.  Why not now and keep it going for the rest of my life...??!!

I'm 5'4, so I'd love to be about smack in the middle with 125.  So, that is my goal! 125, it seems like a good number, and very doable. (It's about 15 lbs from now) I want to hopefully reach that by May 19. A good reminder date for me, because it's mine and my hubby's Anniversary. Plus it's just in time for Summer!! But, I want to also be more toned and have it show! 
Hopefully I'll share an amazing "After" Pic in 3 1/2 months or so.  If not my complete "After" hopefully definite progress.  

To see my Fitness Story from the beginning Go Here!

How Am I going to get there??? I'm going to keep working out.  I will get no less than 7 workouts in a week.  I rest on Sunday. Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays I work out 2 times a day (morning and night). Plus I'll be training for a 10K so I'll hopefully have some good run time in there somewhere. By Workout I mean I break out into a good sweat on each workout. I'm hoping to get 8 or 9 workouts in each week, but that doesn't always happen, so I will make sure I have no less than 7 each week. To follow my workouts go Here
The big part I will have to change is my eating.  I haven't been doing to bad, but nothing has changed in my weight.  So, I must need to change something in my diet.  I will not deprive myself because I know that only leads to binging and I want to eat in a way that I can the rest of my life.  I'm going to try for lean proteins, good carbs, lots of veggies and hopefully no processed foods and refined sugars all week, giving my self one free day a week (with still definite portion control on that day).  I will practice portion control on all days.  I want to get good at making meals we like but using healthier food substitutions in recipes, etc.  I WILL drink 64 oz of water each day! Maybe this is one reason I haven't budged on the scale....???
We will see how this goes! I hope you follow along.  I will just imagine you are because that will keep me going :) I'll share as much as I can as I go.  Please encourage, send me eating tips or anything that may help.  If you want to make your own goals and try a long with me that would be fun!
Let's do this! I'm ready!
