Well, actually it started yesterday, but who's counting right?
All this week, I've seen several bloggers mention that it's time to double down. Let's get serious. Quit slackin'. Let's do it. Funny, that's the same thing I've been telling myself for oh....three weeks now?
So, I took all of these blog posts as a sign that wow, maybe it's time I actually DID IT!! So, I commented on Kris' blog yesterday and gave her my comittment and told her my goals. And she emailed me back and said "ok, now you have to be accountable." Oh shit!!
So what did I tell her? I told her that for the next week (until Thanksgiving, taking things one week at a time right now) that I would count every single calorie that went into my body. I started yesterday. I went over by 37 calories, but I counted 'em. All of 'em.
I also told her that I intend to fill up my 32 oz nalgene water bottle (and drink it) four times per day. I was one short yesterday. Holy crap, that's a lot of water!!
Today, I'm still counting calories and realize that I'm running low, so I plan to run to the gym for a while after I drop Boy 1 at swim practice. That should give me just enough time to get in a good workout and still get Boy 2 to his lessons on time.
I've had 1 1/2 bottles of water so far. Gotta get on that. I'll be pee'ing all night!
So how 'bout it? Anyone care to double down with us heading into this holiday season? Let's show this turkey who's boss!!
