I just got off the treadmill after doing my 30 minutes of exercise.  🙂


New Year’s Goals

Filed under: Family,New Year's Goal,Weight Loss — taramayrn @ 12:51 am

Okay, okay, I know, like I said earlier I am the worst blogger ever.  With 2007 just beginning I suppose it is fitting to post my New Year’s Goals – I refuse to call them resolutions. 

1.  Lose weight – I know one of my last posts was that I was going to lose weight.  Well obviously I didn’t want it bad enough then and have pretty much hit rock bottom.  Both my husband and I are going to be working hard this year to get into shape.  I started my weight loss/get into shape journey today and did pretty well.  I did Weight Watchers a few years ago and had pretty good success with it and so I’ll be using Weight Watchers to guide my food choices.  I am also aiming to get 30 minutes of exercise in six days a week. 

2.  Be a “better” wife – I know that’s pretty darn vague.  I guess what I want to do is just work at keeping my relationship with my husband healthy and happy.  We are both so busy that sometimes we forget how important it is to make time for us as a couple.  So this year I aim to talk to my husband more and to spend more time with him.

So far that’s all I have come up with.  I’m sure as the year progresses I will be able to add some more goals to my list. 
How do you make sure you stay motivated in accomplishing your goals?  What is your inspiration? 

For me, the big thing motivating me with both my goals is that Chad and I plan on starting our family in January of 2008.  🙂

So, wish me luck as I set the excuses aside.


Sticking to it. September 4, 2006

Well, so far I’ve been sticking to my plan, for the most part. Saturday we were busy all day and I didn’t get a chance to exercise at all. I weighed myself this morning and I’ve lost 2.5 lbs. Wooohooo!!!


Jumping on the treadmill. August 31, 2006

Filed under: Weight Loss — taramayrn @ 6:30 pm

I am sick of being fat, tired and leading an unhealthy lifestyle and I am finally ready to do something about it. Today I have made a promise and committment to myself that I am going to:

– participate in some sort of physical activity everyday
– eat more fruits and vegetables
– eat smaller servings
– drink more water

I’m embarrassed to say that my current weight is 192 lbs. My goal is to lose 30 lbs by December 31, 2006. I’ll keep you all updated on my progress.

So if you could please send me some motivating thoughts I’d sure appreciate it.
