Okay...glad this past week is over

I had very good intentions but then month end close came and I didn't get to exercise or make sure I drank all my water 100%. New week new effort! I lost weight this week....1.2 pounds. I sure wish the weight would come off lots faster!

12 weeks and counting

Contract with myself....for the next 12 weeks
1) Drink 6 glasses of water daily
2) Exercise 6 days a week
3) Learn to love myself
4) Lose 20 pounds
5) Tone up legs and arms

Buying the dress for the wedding made things really real for me....I have 8 months and 8 days to get into a size 10. I have been listening to Body for Life on my ipod today while walking outside and I realized I need to be able to see into the future. Where do I want to be and what habits do I need to change to get there. I wouldn't dream of telling someone I am going to do something so why do I not give myself the same respect? How many of us will do whatever we can for someone else but we don't give ourselves the same treatment? Do unto others as you would do unto you? Does this make sense to anyone else but me? I remember back when Heidi was actively posting and how excitied we got over the black dress. I know I had my picture of the little black dress I was working for....everywhere. I had thin pictures of me posted everywhere and the journey was a passion....not so much here lately. I let myself down and make excuses for not walking or going to the gym. I decided I didn't pay $40 for my dress and not get to wear it. Remember the mantra we said to ourselves daily?...I am going to say my mantras in the morning when I wake up and at night when I go to bed. I am going to set 5 daily goals a day and give myself points for achieving my goals. I hope there will be more people who want to attain their goals with me but if I am by doesn't really matter because I am not going to let myself down.
