Back to school.
It's a rite of passage preparing us for the upcoming onslaught of kids in pumpkin patches... and then kids in holiday PJs.... and then posts about going back to the gym...
I have decided, because I am a giver, to combine a few things. You know, to save time and such.
So, yes, today was Kiddo's first day of Kinder...
|zomg she is the cutest thing EVER|
It is also the day I dust off my work out DVD (serious dust), find my hand weights, join Weight Watchers, and vow (again) to get serious about eating healthy and getting a decent amount of exercise.
|Not cute, but sweaty and that's almost as important!|
My goals are simple... nothing says setting yourself up for disappointment like trying to have lofty goals you have never ever met before. This time I am aiming for more realistic goals.
Goal The First: Get back into wearing my size 8 clothes comfortably. I can get into my size 8s..... mostly. And with only a bit of squeezing but there is always that risk that today will be the day when they won't fit. And some days they don't. I am far more comfy in my size 10s, but I have vastly more clothing in the size of 8 and thus, this goal is practical as well as vain. I want to be comfy in my size 8s. I do not want to have to buy more 10s.
|One can dream though...|
Goal the Third: I would like my muffin top to be more of this:
Rather than this:
|"Muffy"... All top, no bottom!|
I don't think that is too much to ask. Seems like kicking up my exercise a bit, making healthy choices regarding food, and doing some weight training will get me there.
It's not like I am trying to turn into a super model... and I have finally moved past the number on the scale. It has been over a year since I have weighed myself.
Anyway, there you have it: First Day of School and New School Year Resolutions all in one post!
