New Year, New Challenge

Well, hello blog!  Long time, no see!

There is a new challenge starting up at The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans

It is The Power of One Challenge.

Today's mission is to look my scale in the eye and then record my goals for the upcoming year.    Well, I had a backslide and my weight has been creeping up and up and up.  Of course this is not being helped by the steady diet of cookies, candy, and assorted other rich foods I have been living on for the past couple of weeks.

So, here goes.....

Previous weight:  155.8

Challenge starting weight:  159.6

My goals for the upcoming year:

1.  Control my snacking.
2.  Drink more water.
3.  Exercise 3-4 days per week.  I have great workout games for my Wii, a treadmill and an aerobic step and dumbbells.  Weather can be no excuse for me.

You will probably notice a lack of weight loss goal.  This is on purpose.  I tend to fixate on weight in a very unhealthy way.  I know that if I can get those other dominoes to fall into place, my weight will too.  I need to focus on HEALTH and not a NUMBER.

Happy New Year!


  1. I love your focus on healthy living and not the numbers. Can I steal it?! It's good to have you back!!!

  2. I hear you on the weight-loss goals...though I still tend to obsess on the weight even when I'm telling myself I'm not. Good luck on the challenge!

  3. I wanna get there too. The place where healthy supercedes looks. When you find the secret let me know.

  4. You won't find a weight goal on my list either! Congrats on focusing on health instead of a number! You can totally rock this challenge!

  5. That is a wonderful attitude! Love your goals! Can't wait to see your progress!

  6. I love that your goals are "realistic" and very doable!! You can do this!!
