SNOW DAYS and GOALS!!!!

One of the best things about working for the school district is snow days! When the kiddos are out, I a get a PAID DAY OFF! School was closed today for this "big" snow storm we were supposed to get (yeah, right). We only got a dusting of snow, but since I am in Tennessee, and people down here freak out about snow, they decided to cancel school tomorrow, too! So I get a 4-day weekend! YaY!

So... I am using this to my weight-loss advantage! A few more days at home to concentrate on ME will be great! I have found two new DVDs that are DOABLE! They are the two new Biggest Loser workouts (30-day Jumpstart and Last Chance Workout). I am going to do both of them before dinner today - I'll let you know how it goes. I am actually excited!

I have also wrote out my weight loss goals for the rest of the year. I usually don't do this and just go with the flow. But, I really think that if I put my mind, body, and will-power into it, I can reach my goal this year... 155 lbs. 155 lbs will put me at the right BMI so I will no longer be overweight, so that's how I got that number. But who knows, I might get to another higher weight and stop there. Hell, I might go for lower. But for right now, 155 is the goal. Here's how I will get there...

290 lbs - this is what I weighed-in at on Monday (Jan. 4)

260 lbs - 3/5/10 - This is the beginning of our Spring Break. If I meet this goal, I plan on taking a mini-vacation to Florida. Someone has already agreed to sponsor the trip...
229 lbs - 5/26/10 - This is my birthday, and is also the end of the school year. 229 lbs will put me back at the weight I was before I had my youngest daughter - a special number for me.
199 lbs - 7/26/10 - This is the first day back to work for our school district. I am going to think positive, and hope that when I get hired on to teach it will be somewhere in this district, but even if I don't, most schools around here go back on this date. I would LOVE to be in Onederland by then!
185 lbs - LABOR DAY
170 lbs - HALLOWEEN
165 lbs - THANKSGIVING
155 lbs - JANUARY 1, 2011

As you can probably tell, the first three numbers are my biggest goals. The last three are just realistic numbers that can get me to goal by the New YEAR! I WILL start 2011 at MY GOAL WEIGHT (whatever that ends up being). It is totally something I can do. It is definitely something I WILL DO.

OK...off to exercise, then dinner time!
