92 DAYS!!!

92 DAYS!!!
That is how many days stand between me now, and the me that will be standing on a beach!
I am so excited!!! My friend Kelly has started the countdown and now I have adopted it. 
(The all illusive plan I've been babbling about)
-125 ounces of water everyday
That's 8, 16.9oz bottles a day.
-Couch to 5K 3 to 4 days a week
Yes, I am attempting this again. I still want to run a 5K soon.
-Use Shape Magazine workouts/DVD's 3 days a week
The magazine workouts look very cool and I spent the money on the DVD's so might as well use them.
-Eat 6 small meals a day
I am using my Gestational Diabetes diet as a guide.
-Journal meals/snacks/indiscretions everyday
This was required by the doctors when I was pregnant. It really made me think about what I was eating.
-Weigh in once a week. Sunday ONLY
I used to weigh everyday and it would make me crazy, up 2 monday, down 3 wednesday, up 2 friday. No more, only ONCE a week.
-Take measurements/pictures once a month, 30th
To show progress in inches and physical appearance. 
-Limit beef consumption to once a week
I have been trying to do this for a while now. I just feel better when I don't eat it as much.
I accomplished getting off of them before our wedding and I felt great. That was a big part of the 46lbs I lost by our wedding in 2007. I want to get off them this time for good.

What do ya'll think of my plan? Any advice?


  1. Sounds good! I find that eating lots of smaller meals works better for me than a few bigger ones. And the more water, the better! I gave up soda entirely in place of water (and occasionally, unsweetened tea) and it's amazing how much cleaner you feel.

  2. Sounds like a great plan! I think you have covered all bases, from nutrition to exercise. I'm rooting for you!

  3. Sounds like a great plan, you can do it. :)
    I need to get my butt back into shape as well.
    I don't drink soda at all and drinking water all the time feels great.
    I know you will reach your goal :)

  4. Thank ya'll so much!!! I love getting encouraging messages from readers/fellow bloggers!
