Before I begin the goals of 2013, I must stop and look back at 2012. So much has changed in the last 12 months. Last December 2011, I weighed in at 262.9. Now I weigh 212.8 down just slightly over 50 pounds. I didn't really start making real changes until July. I have gone down 2.5 sizes.

The biggest change I feel, not see. I feel it when I am working out. That place you reach when you are pushing, and you break through to a new level. Like only being able to do 3 minutes on the elliptical trainer in July, to 23 minutes now. My goal is to be at 45 minutes in December 2013.

My goal weight for December 30, 2013 is 134.8. That is a 1.5 pound loss per week. Seventy-eight pounds. The way to get there is track all food, track all exercise and enjoy each day along the way.

I want to introduce different physical activities. I have recently added cycling to my swimming, walking, treadmill, elliptical, stationary bike and strength training. I want to add inline skating , kayaking and hiking. I will be encouraging my DH, children, sisters, parents and friends to join me.

Nutrition wise, I want to cook more large batch and prepare my lunches rather than rely on Lean cuisines so I can have better control of my nutrients.
I am going to take 12 full body pictures of my self to continue to track my progress.

    "Just because we are knocked down does not mean that we are out.
    We still have breath in our lungs and tears flowing down - all signs that we are alive!
    Take a deep breath and be reminded that often our biggest struggles are stepping stones to our greatest victories."

    “The whole idea of motivation is a trap. Forget motivation. Just do it. Exercise, lose weight, test your blood sugar, or whatever. Do it without motivation. And then, guess what? After you start doing the thing, that's when the motivation comes and makes it easy for you to keep on doing it.”
    -John C. Maxwell

    "The common conception is that motivation leads to action, but the reverse is true....action precedes motivation. You have to "prime the pump" and get the juice flowing, which motivates you to work on your goals. Getting momentum going is the most difficult part of the job, and often taking the first step is enough to prompt you to make the best of your day."
