2012 is sooooo my year. I can just feel it…seriously. Business, health, family, relationship, growth, finances, weight loss….its all gonna be great in 2012. Despite getting married and moving back to Washington, I’d say 2011 was a hard year. We had a lot of obstacles to overcome, and every month felt like a struggle. It just wasn’t the year for me.
in 2012 we have big plans too. In one week we will be doing a wedding expo with our new business Tied Bow Events, and I am so excited! This event will really give us a feel for how the summer and this wedding season will turn out. On a very tight budget we have been working our butts off getting all of our websites, promotions, packages and booth together. Fingers crossed and good thoughts!
In other big (fat) plans, we are doing the THIRTY in NINETY plan! Don’t be fooled, this plan is not something I found online, I made it up. Its pretty straight forward, lose thirty pounds in ninety days. Eat healthy, work out tons, lose weight.
I weighed in today, yup up 33 pounds from where I want to be. Mr. Gaunt is up too, too much, both of us. For Christmas we bought each other 3 month gym passes and we have been going faithfully. The plan is to go 5 days a week for an hour. 30 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of strength training. We both want it to sort of become a hobby, something we enjoy, where you can actually see and feel the results. The few times in my life where I regularly worked out, I never really felt like it was making any results. I want to change that.
For food, sugar is OUT! no more. I’m ok if there is a little sugar in breads or cereal, but nothing that is specifically made to be sweet. No candy, cakes, ice cream, baked goods.
Also, nothing fried, minimal cheese, low carb, lots of veggies. The usual. But smaller portions. Portion control is key. I will ALWAYS take half of every meal I eat out home with me. Also no more beer (him) or wine (me) except on special occasions.
Last I’m sharing pics of what I eat! For 90 days, if I eat it, you will see it. It will hold me accountable.
Weigh in is on Sundays, so no wild weekends. If you want to join all you have to do is email me morganmelim(at)yahoo(dot)com or text (if you know my number) on Sundays how much weight you lost (not your actual weight), and I will list you our weigh in post! Take before and after pics too! And healthy food your eating, or gym pics and send those to me too! We can all motivate each other!
