HAPPY 2011!

so i told yall that i would sumarize my WW meeting here is what i got out of it :)

the topic was "PointsPlus 2011...A Second Honeymoon!" it was all about how we can be starting over, in a good way! :) and how to set achievable goals this year. my leaders name is JoJo and i absolutely LOVE her! she is by far one of the best leaders i have ever had at WW (remember, this is like my 4th time coming back!) but anyways, she started off with a quote that said, "An optimist stays up until midnight to see the New Year in. A pessimist stays up until midnight to make sure the old year leaves." -American Author Bill Vaughn. I need to be that optimist! :) I am excited for the new year to be here and to make those changes that will last! And i am going to take with me the stuff i have learned from in 2010.

Then she went on to tell us how to set our goals. And here is what a WINNING OUTCOME should look like:
  • positive

  • specific

  • within your control

  • a good fit with your life

i like it! :) so for my weight loss new years resolution i am going to say NO SODA (including diet) ! positive, because it will help me be healthier (check) specific (check) within my control, i've done it before for a whole year :) (check) and a good fit for my life (check)

and for my personal i haven't quote decided. i am either going to do 365 Days of Pictures or write in a journal every day. and i think both of those would pass the winning outcome check list :)

I am just excited for the new year! i know i am still not going to be perfect, but it gives me a chance to start fresh and to try and make positive changes in my life :)

the only think i am worried about is tonight new years eve party with the familia and friends :/ i know there is going to be LOTS of yummy food and it is going to be a struggle to try an eat healthy. but for my appetizer i am bringing fruit with a fruit dip and fruit is free on WW. yay for trying to be healthy :) haha. and i am not going to have the mentality i had last year of "eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we DIET!" :) haha. i need to change that way of thinking...because "starting tomorrow" on my diet has never worked for me and i need to make the changes TODAY!

anyways, i hope you all have a goal in mind for the NEW YEAR! Let's give ourselves a chalenge and something to work at and accomplish!

and i will leave with the quote i left with at WW.

"The greatest thing you have is the 24 hours in front of you. The past is gone, the future is distant. Today you can succeed! Set a goal you can achieve within the next 24 hours." -Joann Pillifant, WW Leader

*my 24 hours goal is going to be: write everything i put in my mouth down. because then that will help me visualize how much i have ate so i don't overeat at the party*

Dear Bed,

You are so warm and cozy and i, of course, LOVE YOU...but you make it really hard for me to want to get out of bed at 6 in the morning and go the the gym...especially on a rainy, cold day! But i did...just 20 minutes later ;) So thanks for pushing me out.

Tay Tay

*walked for an hour on the treadmill and accomplished 3.28 miles*

So yesterday wasn't a completely successful day, but it also wasn't a complete failure :) always a plus. One of my goals is to track everything i eat...which has been a real struggle for me. And actually i am suppose to even find the PointsPlus values for Weight Watchers, which i never do. (yea, i act like i don't even know what the program is. hehe) but yesterday i tracked!!! woohoo. didn't figure out the points (and i know for certain i would have gone way over), but i wrote everything down! GO ME! here is what my day looked liked:

(B) orange

(L) leftover turkey soup
12 saltine crackers
light balsamic vinegarette

(S) 4 pumkin cookies
1 chocolate dipped pretzal

(D) 3 chicken roll-up's
scoop cream of chicken
1/2 C white rice w/ some butter

(S) TOO MANY peanut butter M&M's (my downfall)
popcorn with butter and salt
[[me, the marmy and seesters watched "Eat, Pray, Love"...which i actually liked! but involved too many treats]]

So i am proud that i actually tracked. Today, maybe i can track and figure out atleast a few of the points that i ate. i am taking baby steps here :)

oh and on another plus...i lost 1 pound yesterday at my weigh-in! woohoo! i was pretty shocked to see that number since i ate AWFUL that week during Christmas vacay. (i was actually expecting to be depressed again and gain some more) but the previous week aunt flow gave me a visit and i had gained a whopping 3.6 i think it balanced out. the topic at WW yesterday was on new years goals and how we are going to make this year different than our i will do another post on that :)

anywhooooo...time to get ready for work! i will check in later.

It's beginning to look alot like...

NEW YEARS! :) which is that wonderful time of the year to reevaluate our lives and set new goals. We are so pumped and excited to actually achieve our goals this year...and we don't want anyone telling us we can't. this year we are banning CAN'T from our vocabulary! There have been many different things that have forced us to take action and we each have different motivators to help us along. Like Taylor's desire to go on a cruise/find a HOT boyfriend (wink wink) or Jonni's plan to move to Hawaii next year and be seen in a bathing everyone!

Now, let's just say for the past 3 years we have been "planning" a family Biggest Loser...but it's actually going to happen this year! :) The money is going in to the pot and we are weighing/taking measurements. woot comes the new and improved skinny clark family!!

So, you will be hearing back from us soon. no more weigh-in's...but just our every day to day life and challenges. be prepared for our wonderful words of wisdom ;)

love you all...
