New Year...New Me

I'm a little late in posting this since we're 18 days into the new year already, but I'm also a little late in starting my path to the New Me.

Better late than never. Right?

Joey and I have set some goals for ourselves this year. Most of our goals for this year involve home repairs/purchases and saving money. I doubt that we will accomplish both since the home repairs will require money! But we've been here for 2 1/2 years, it's time to get going on fixing and painting and all that fun stuff!

I've made a goal for myself. I need to get myself to a healthy weight. I was heavy before we planned to start our family. And now, with the added baby weight, I am at my all time highest weight. I'm not pleased with that fact at all.

I won't be sharing my starting weight with you all. No way! But I will share my losses and gains each week. As well as any diet-friendly recipes I may come across.

I used to be a member or Weight Watchers Online. I loved the program and really loved the Recipe Builder that the online program included. I did really well while I followed the plan, but slacked off and gained it all back (plus some).

This time, I don't have the money to join the online program and I'm sure I'll miss the Recipe Builder. But I'm going to try this on my own this time. I'll still snack. I'll still have desserts. I'm just going to cut back on portion sizes and try to make healthier choices.

For now, I don't plan on making special "diet" dinners. Breakfast and lunch will be more diet type foods since I only prepare those meals for myself. Dinner for my husband and I will be the same foods I normally prepare, I'll just be eating less of it....I hope.

I want to drink more water. I rarely drink water and I know it's not good for me, but soda is always my preferred choice. I really want to drink less soda. Once a day or at dinner time and only if my goal of 8 glasses of water a day is achieved. We'll see how that goes.

So far, so good today. 4 glasses of water before noon and no snacks. I'm starting to feel hungry now, so I guess I'll go see what's for lunch while the baby is napping.

Wish me luck!

Good Luck. Glenne and I are doing eating healthy and trying to be more active. I too am a soda drinker and need to drink more water.
