Get Fit for 30- 1 Month update

Goal 1= check!

5% of my body weight is gone.  g.o.n.e.  Not only do I feel lighter (obviously) but I have more energy and my clothes are starting to fit better too.  

I wonder how I will feel when I reach 10%? ... and beyond!  I am motivated but also very victorious with my results in the first 30 days.  Each pound is a celebration.  

Some of my very favorite plan friendly meals are

  • English muffin and fried egg- Prepared in olive oil spray. Only 5 points
  • Breakfast smoothie.  1/2 cup french vanilla yogurt, 1 cup strawberries, 1 banana and 1 cup spinach and 4 ice cubes- blended well.  2 points

  • 1 cup tomato soup- with basil and 1/8 cup feta cheese. 3 points.  Tastes amazing, but not photo friendly. :)  

  • Home brewed iced tea sweetened with Steevia.  0 points

  • Pistachios- 1/2 cup 5 points

  • Fudgecicle- 1 point

As a reward for reaching my first official goal I set up a hair appointment and got a little pampering. New style for summer complete with highlights.  Love it! 

Trying to decide on an appropriate reward for my next goal- maybe new shoes or a new flat iron.  I think the best reward will be increased energy, health and a better me to offer my husband and boys.

My "Get Fit For 30" Plan

Thirty. The big 3-0.  I am coming up quickly on an age that seemed so old when I was a kid.  Somehow- now that I am approaching it, it’s hard to believe I am standing right on the threshold of waving good-bye to my twenties.  2 weeks ago I officially kicked off my “get fit for thirty” game plan.  I took the plunge and signed myself up for Weight Watchers Online… Something I had never tried before- but had heard a lot of success stories about.  I wanted to take this seriously- and pick a program that I wouldn’t get burnt out with on week one.  So- two weeks in and so far so good!  I am finding it easy to stick to the daily points, and love that there are weekly bonus points built in.  I have seen progress and am, more importantly, feeling motivated to keep it up…  This is my year.  I am claiming it- owning it- and loving it.  The day I turn 30 is going to be a great day for me- lots of goals to reach before November 1st!
