Progress starts at the beginning :)

I've got to do something about my physique! This blog is turning into my fitness journal. :) So, here's where I am starting from. It's not pretty, but at least I know I can make some excellent progress...

My Stats:

Weight 175 lbs
Waist 40"
Hips 45.5"
Chest 40.75"
Ribcage (under chest) 34"
R. Thigh 26.5"
L. Thigh 26.6"
R. Calf 15.25"
L. Calf 15.25"
R. Bicep 13.5"
L. Bicep 13.5"
Neck 14"
Wrist 6.4"
BMI 32
Body Fat 49.16%

My Goals:

Weight 130 lbs (loss of 45 lbs)
Body Inches lose 40"
Body Fat between 18% and 22%
BMI 24


December 31st is my deadline
I need to lose 2 lbs each week
I need to work out 6 days/week using Pilates and Slim in 6
I need to go run or play racquetball 5 days/week
I need to keep my caloric intake to 1600 calories/day (I HATE counting calories!!!)

And here's a visual: ;)

Me today ~

How I would like to look ~

I would LOVE to look like Jessica Beil. I fell in love with her body when I saw Stealth. The scene where she is in her bathing suit at the tropical waterfall/pool (I think) is a perfect example of how lean I would like my body to be. I think she's quite a bit taller than I am, so it's not very likely that I'll ever have her body, but still...that's what I'm shooting for.

Scarlett Johansson is a GREAT example of how I would like to look, because she's still so sexy and curvy AND lean. So I guess I would like to combine Scarlett's curves with Jessica's lean muscle and *poof*, there's my ideal body. :)

I'll journal my progress as I go. I'll post a weekly photo update with stats as well as anything else that comes to mind.

I totally want this for my laptop!!! You can purchase these laptop protective skins HERE.

A cane, please....

I hurt my back yesterday....putting the little garbage can down on the floor in the bathroom!!! I pinched a nerve or something and now walk like a grandma. :) Time to get back to the chiropractor...

Woo hoo!!! The missionaries came over this morning!

Why is it that the only time anyone ever comes over and knocks on the door is when I am enjoying a nice poo. Last time that happened was when management was doing their walk-throughs to make sure everything was in decent shape in the apartments. They unfortunately had a key and just walked right in! I hurried and finished, flushed, washed my hands, and surprised them when I came out into the living room. I told them to be careful in the bathroom because it still stunk. Classy, I know. :)

Anyway, back to the missionaries. Elder Williams and Elder Kalic (or something like that) stopped by and delivered the Finding Faith in Christ DVD. They don't have a dinner appointment tonight, so I invited them over to dinner. I'm excited to have the missionaries involved in Patrick and me moving forward in our spiritual progression. I'm glad they came over, too, because church tomorrow is at a different time. (Woo hoo! 2 hours later = more sleep for me!)

So, I need to get some cleaning done and some shopping. Anything but spaghetti is on the menu tonight. I wish people wouldn't serve spaghetti and lasagna to the missionaries so dang often! When I was a kid and teen we had the missionaries over all the time and they always said the same thing....please no spaghetti or lasagna!!!

I'm so excited. I love missionaries. They remind me of the BEST time of my life...a time when the focus was on service, temple work, missionary work, and living a pure and joyful life. It'll get there....

Okay....I've been needing to figure out my WHY's in life.

WHY do I want to become a Mary Kay Independent Sales Director?

do I want to live a righteous God-fearing life?

do I want to be in a relationship?

I've got to pin down the WHY's, so it's easier to make a plan and to actually stick to it.

Today I am going to make a visual Dream-poster, and my goal is to discover and reaffirm my WHY for doing Mary Kay and wanting to become a Director.

On a side note, how sad is it that Bob Barker is retiring from The Price is Right??? Yeah, he's getting OLD, but he's still so dang cute up there. Especially when he gets an over-zealous fan all up in his face who is hyperventilating too much to play the games. Ah, I love that.

Okay, time to quit watching The Price is Right and jump in the shower. :)

Baby got back!

Okay...the scale and I aren't getting along again! My new weight loss goal is to lose between 30-40 lbs. This is going to take some major lifestyle changes...eating habits and daily excercise. I got down to about 15 lbs above my "ideal" weight, and it's come back in the past few months. Patrick is a really good cook...and we like to eat. Not to mention I've been struggling with some depression, and I usually eat as a coping mechanism.

One thing I know for sure is that excercise makes me feel GREAT about myself. So just doing 20 minutes of pilates or yoga or something each morning will get me to feel better about myself. In return, I'll take better care of myself...not putting so much junk in my mouth. (Man, I love chocolate!)

I've got to do this, though. Not only to feel good about myself, but for health reasons as well. I want to live as long as possible. I want to be an old lady on a rocker in front of my house, BSing with the teenagers with all my sassiness, and moving around without any funky limps or walkers. Is that too much to ask??? NO. So is it too much to ask to do a little exercise and eat healthier???? ....ummm.....no. (Still working on becoming fully committed.)

Here's to me, 40 lbs lighter!!!

New Blog!

I changed my email address to ditch the ex-husband's last name and return to the comfort and familiarity of my maiden name. So I figured, why not start a new blog??? I'll try to be a better blogger, more frequent, more entertaining, more open, and more ME.

My last blog, if you want to check it out is at www.alisonsboringdetails.blogspot.com. Here's to a new start!!!
