Do I really want to do this?

Umm......
I don't know.
But, I think it will help.

Ok, here goes.....

For the last 15 months I have been on a on-again-off-again weight loss journey. The first 9 months or so, I was totally focused. Lost 30 pounds. Then, {how does this happen?}It's like I just woke up and forgot how to focus.

You see, I am the type that is easily thrilled by the new and when boredom sets in I will go searching for something different. (Could that have something to do with that nasty little D word? You know......Discipline.....oh, that hurts!)

Anyway, so I lost 30 pounds.....now for the past several weeks I have watched that scale go up, nothing major just moving in the wrong direction. All the while I have kind of just played with my diet and have not really been consistent with anything.

It is NOT for the lack of knowledge or tools. I have everything I need except for sticktoittiveness. {Did you know that was a real word?}

See I have a FitBit....neat little gadget.

fitbit Wireless Trainer






I also have a Polar HRM in pink.....
Leslie Sansone....I should own stock in her company.
Weight Watchers....I know it like I know my husband....even the new program. (see the keyword...NEW)

I just got tired of thinking about it. But you see I am not 25 anymore. I dislike the aches and pains I am feeling. Honestly, It is not about looks, it is all about health and being able to take a hike and not have to lay in the grass to catch my breath.:) And I NEVER, EVER, EVER want my kids to look at themselves and say "I need to lose 90 pounds!"

So, here is what I am going to do. It is simple. Three things...100 days.

Starting yesterday I began a 100 day challenge of my own making.
For 100 days I will
1) Get in 10,000 steps or more per day
2) Track all of my food
3) Stay in my calorie range

I will do a short post about each day and if I was successful or not.

So, if I have any regular readers (Hi, MOM!) I will feel some accountability. I really don't want to prove to the whole world wide web that I can't follow through.....

So yesterday I:


and.....stayed within my calorie range
It was fun just because my little ones did it all with me. There is nothing as cute as a two year old keeping up with Leslie, well...maybe the 5 year old beside her. :)

1 day down.
1 day at a time.....{I am so not good at that!}

This all has something to do with all the reading I have been doing about living in the now to the fullest. I have cheated myself with years of excuses.

So. Here I go.
