Count down!

The window of opportunity is getting smaller and I'm not. Our trip to Cancun is approaching and I'm not where I want to be. I'm a little too much of me right now. I know I'm "fine" but I could be toner, thinner, and especially healthier. I was quite a bit lighter while in Guate on account of constant activity and eating healthier. Since returning, I've become more American...

Definitely don't fit in those jeans anymore...yikes.


It's September first. But it's January 1st in my head, just A LOT warmer out. Global warming, maybe? I've been eating whatever I want, drinking soda (pop), and sittin' on my tuckus. And it shows. And I feel it. I should actually start eating what I feed Eliot on most days since that's a lot healthier than what I'm consuming. One of many examples of 'Do as I say, not as I crunch.'

Blach.

So, it's time. I have a few things coming up in the next few months that I'd like to feel better for. Our anniversary trip being #1.

So, I hereby resolve to drink protein shakes for breakfast, take my vitamins daily, no soda, no ice cream (this hurts me), and to work-out 4-5 times a week.

Anyone want to join me? I function well with accountability which is part of the reason I'm even posting about this in the first place!

You know I would love to do this with you! I need accountability as well! We worked well together on this in the past.

I am the same way.... do as I say, not as I crunch LOL! Porter eats pretty healthy- veggies and fruits with every meal, but me... not so. I need to start eating healthier and exercising but I'm just so.... lazy.

Hey call me if you want to go jogging or at least walking :) in the park with our strollers. I am trying to get rid of some lbs before my high school reunion and it is fast approaching!

Amanda said...

I am in!!! But you probably already knew that!!! I love that we all have this accountability through the blog world. I never would have thought that I would have accountability all over the USA but also my amazing friend in Antigua (but hopefully not for too much longer)!!! Great idea Katie.

Totally! I went to Old Navy two days ago and was disgusted by myself. I like my clothes I have, I just can't fit into them! So I didn't buy any new clothes; instead I went to Target and bought a whole bunch of workout clothes and a Pilates DVD. Maybe wearing the cute new workout clothes will be incentive to workout?
