Okay…yeah that was a long hiatus I know but my inner thin girl is back and ready to try this again. This past year there has been crazy changes in my life, so many I won’t even go into detail because I’m bound to just start crying and then I’ll never finish this post. Let’s just say that trials and tribulations have been the name of the game and I won!!!!

Yeah, you read right I won and I’m ready for the next set of challenges…(grr I think) lol

So, here I am back on the track of trying to find MY HEALTHY (not the worlds healthy). I believe we all have to find our own since of healthy. Not everyone is going to go on the health craze of getting rid of every single bad thing possible. And I know me, that probably won’t be me. No I won’t go vegan, or vegetarian cause dog gone it I like a nice thick steak from time to time or a juice yummy succulent hamburger. However, my healthy is more of a let me learn what to eat, when to eat it and how much to eat. I think I’m more apt to stick to it that way. This will be my only post about it here on the main page, so if you want to follow my journey or lend some encouragement you will have to check for posts on the page tab marked Finding My Inner Thin Girl, otherwise I’m just journaling for myself and making it public to hold myself accountable.

So what this all means is it’s time for a lifestyle change, no more late night snacking out of boredom or emotions. No more quick runs for fast food because I’m being too lazy to cook. And ummm yeah this will be the hard one, no more Soda every time I want a drink… L Sigh! Water has got to become my friend.

Water is my friend, water is my friend, water is my friend, and water is my friend. It really is going to be the hardest one for me.

Okay so here are my goals for the next 12 weeks….

First I am not putting a number for weight loss amount because that is where I end up getting mad and quitting. Whatever I lose is going to be enough because I am going to have tried my hardest to make it happen.

So here are my goals

  1. Drink 4-6 bottles of water a day. (I cannot drink anything else until I have drank at least 4)
  2. Eat a salad for at least one meal a day or juice a meal. ( I love veggies so this isn’t going to be an issue, I hope)
  3. No late night snacking
  4. In bed no later than 11:00 p.m.
  5. 3 days cardio
  6. 3 days stretching/yoga
  7. Keep a journal…at least 1 entry a week (That would be you guys here, so hold me accountable)

This is where I’m going to start…I’m praying this is one I can stick with. I have issues with allowing depression or emotional eating to take control and using it as an excuse. Can’t let that happen anymore. I’m getting too old and it is too important to get my health in order, besides I want my grandbabies when I finally have them to be able to brag about their gorgeous grandma LOL

Who will hopefully look something like the picture below by then …..my goal body lol

Okay friends so that’s that! I normally would set up my goals and say okay here it is I’ll start next week, but if I’m going to do it, I just need to do it. So tomorrow morning it’s on. My accountability partner will have my before pic, weight, and measurements before the end of the night and we will be kicking butt together, love you Ann. I have fought the battle of the bulge all my life so all prayers are appreciated. It will take divine intervention to keep me on track and keep my loved ones sane during this time lol
