Neat program

I found a neat program online called Weight Mirror.  I usually try not to get hung up on thinking about what I might look like but I couldn’t resist. You upload a before photo, preferably a full length with a neutral background. I usually do not have very good luck with these types of things but this was really easy and satisfying.

Here is a before and hopeful after. Before is about 190 ish and the after is about 160 ish. Inspiring.

Goals an update

So my first goal was a bit side swiped by three long 12 hour night shifts. Golly the overnights and lack of sleep really mess with my metabolism. That being said…

Jan 15th I was down 4.25 lbs

My goal being 5lbs so not too bad at all. During that goal time I went down 3 and then up 4 and then down another 4. These ups and downs are driving me crazy. Water weight I suppose. Oh well moving in the right direction!

My second goal was to be down 10 lbs total (so 5.75 more)  from my new starting weight by Feb 1. I have 2 weeks and I should be able to do it. I am swimming 2-3 times per week, spinning 2 times per week, maybe a run or two in there as well. Go away weight.

I am trying a new vegan smoothie for breakfast that my friend Carly recommended. It is quite good, a bit sweet with the stevia content but I mixed in some frozen berries to cut the sweetness and it goes down well. We will see how it goes.

Short term goals…not resolutions

I think it is easy to get mired up in a grand long-term goal. I have set a couple of simple short-term goals that I will succeed with.

#1 Lose 5 lbs by Jan 15th…3.75 lbs gone so far

#2 Lose a total of 10 lbs by Feb 1st.

The first goal will get me back to where I was before the season of feasting but I think it is better to look at it  as a success than getting back to where I was before I “failed”. I am already feeling so much happier with a little bit of success.

More goals to come.

What is a short-term goal you want to make?
