Weight Loss Goals

Another April Goal + Log and pics.

I'm giving myself another April goal. As of today, I want to get in at least 20 minutes of exercise, at least 5 days a week. No excuses! If I want to reach my 10 pound loss for the month of April, then I've got to work for it, and I can do this! 20 minutes is NOTHING. Zumba is 20 minutes and I enjoy it, so I know I can do that at least Monday's through Thursday's, then try for a nice long walk on Friday's. I can do this! I need to stop putting exercise off for other things and some times just put other things off for exercise!

                                                             -Food/Exercise Log-

Wake up time: 9:30am

10:10am - Breakfast. A bowl of Kellogg's special K "fruit & yogurt" cereal in almond milk.

12:30pm - Work out. Zumba 20-minutes express.

1:50pm - Lunch. 2 ranch chicken wraps.
I used a 5 oz. can of premium chicken breast, drained the water and mixed in some ranch dressing and dry roasted sun flower seeds, then put it on low-carb whole wheat flour tortilla's and BAM. Delish!

4:10pm -  Exercise. 30 squats & 100 crunches.

4:40pm - Snack. An apple and a strawberry.

7:35pm - Dinner. 2 ground turkey taco's on whole wheat, low-carb flour tortilla's with lettuce, tomato, guacamole and picante sauce.

Oh, here are 2 updated pics of me... (I'll upload them into my progress pics later)

Don't mind the stupid faces... I didn't realize pictures were being taken. :P
To be honest: I thought these pictures would make me sick, as pictures of myself that other people took usually do... but these didn't! I clearly see a DIFFERENCE. I'm not as wide, and my stomach doesn't stick out like it used to. I still have a long way to go, but 30 pounds has made a difference and I am loving it! I can just imagine myself with another 30 pound loss, wow! :D I'm so excited.

Oh and just for the record... the jeans I am wearing in that picture haven't fit in years. I had them in a drawer with 2 other pairs, still with tags and all, because I had faith that "ONE DAY" they would fit. A few months ago, they would barely pull up my hips and were inches away from buttoning - even when I laid down. Now they go up and button with EASE!


  1. thats great! You look awesome I can see the difference too. Good job keep it up and you will reach your goal in no time at all. Also thats a great plan for exercise I need to get back into my exercise since I have been gone a week. It was so much different there I would LOVE exercising if I lived there :( o well.... I gotta get back on top. Congrats again and you look great!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    You're doing great! And realizing that you NEED to put exercise before anything else is very important, for yourself and for everybody around you. Way to go!!
