Accomplishments for the year and goals for 2008

Well while I have been on a little break you can guess it correctly that Ive gained a few pounds. Im not happy to report it but hey the new year is right around the corner and that is good news for sure because that will get myself back into shape for sure.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and didnt eat too much..haha!

So while the end of the year is coming to an end I just thought I would put my accomplishments for the year...
*lost 40 lbs (ok maybe a little less after Christmas) and maintained that weight off pretty well until Christmas...
*have figured out what works and doesnt and have learned so much about nutrition that all of my family have started asking me what Im doing to lose the weight and even my hubby so its a great feeling
*exercise is not a far out dream anymore but a reality of its happening. I enjoy it instead of dreading it. I can actually walk miles and miles at athletic events and other outings and not feel like Im about to pass out
*I am comfortably in a size 10, wow never thought I would ever see that number again. My other clothes are so big on me that Im going to have to raid my closet and get rid of all my "fat clothes" the only problem is I guess I might have to go shopping for clothes that fit..haha!
*water-I love drinking water even though I still have my sweet tea love as well but Im getting better about it. My hubby always jokes around and says I can chug water faster than anyone he knows..guess thats a good thing..haha!

I feel like I have accomplished so many things this year even though this was a tough, tough year with so many changes but I feel like I did the best with the changes. Job changes, moves * 3 and adjusting to being a first year teacher was tough and I think 2008 will be a fabulous year Ill get down to my goal weight!!

Goals for 2008.....
*exercise more and tone up my flab.......Ive got my elliptical back as well as several fitness DVD's that I actually have space to do both now and I cant wait. We also have a nice park right behind our new house that we can walk to so I cant wait to use that as well. Im also looking to really step up running. Me and hubby started it last year but never made a good dent in it.
*water-need to still work on getting my water but its getting better
*lose 20-25 lbs.....depending on how many I gained during the holidays but I want to get down to 145 by June 2008 as that will be about 1 lb per week so thats definitely doable and then maintain for the rest of the year. We are heading to Hawaii and June 2008 so I want to look the best by then!
*cut down sweet tea....this one still needs a little improvement but as long as we eat in Im good but eat out and its a dangerous thing.
*Eat out less.....this goes hand and hand with the first one but we need to eat in more its much better and now that I have a great kitchen to cook in our new house I think it will get better for sure!

Well I hope everyone had a fabulous Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2008! I doubt I will get back on before then as we are going out of town this weekend and Im still unpacking boxes until then so see you next year!
