My new personal challenge

I do better when I have to be accountable so therefore I am starting another 'personal' challenge (personal as because I suck at organizing and keep up with a bigger challenge, I can participate but not manage one), this time I am going to stick with it, I think this is the 3rd or 4th one I have started this year and so far have remained the same except for the Biggest Chooser Challenge (Over at Choosing 2 Lose--Awesome Weight Loss Forum) where I am down 11# + FINALLY! Well I had a goal last year/new years to be at my goal of 150# by 2010, well seeing as how that's 50# away I don't think there is anyway I will make that in 3 months, I would have to lose 16.67# a month, which could happen but I don't want to set my goal too high. So I am going to shoot for 30# which will be a 10# loss each month until Jan 1st. That will put me at 175#, and 25# away from my ultimate goal. I AM going to do this!

I am TIRED of getting winded just walking up the small hill to my mailbox/dumpster, I am TIRED of waking up each morning in pain from my joints because I have extra weight on them, I am TIRED of having NO energy because I am fat, I am tired of splitting my scrub pants on my thunder thighs, I'm TIRED of wearing out my thighs on my pants because my flabby thunder thighs rub together then I walk, I want a thigh gap! And last but not least, I am tired of having empty arms! I do not know if my lack of conception is due to my weight or my hubby's weight or not but I'm sure it's not helping. I want a baby! I'm DONE With FAT gosh dangit!

I am a big time list person so I hope you don't mind my list of how I am going to accomplish this goal of mine.

I will do the following to reach goal:
1- Stay on Plan (Tips on how I am going to do that)

a- Prepare breakfast/lunches for work night before including snacks
1- Eat Healthy Snacks NO MORE Bags of dorritos
2- Drink more water than Diet Coke/Coke Zero
3- Exercise at least 30 minutes 5 times a week
1- Walking
2- Walk At Home DVD's
3- Elliptical Machine
4- Crunch/Squats/Lunges Challenge (200)
4- Limit couch/tv/internet time, be active in some way whether cleaning/scrapbooking/sewing/playing with dogs/cats/chinchillas or whatever NO Addiction to TV
1- Get home from work by 7pm, work on dinner and cleaning until hubby leaves for work around 9pm then spend an hour unwinding with tv/internet then prepare and go to bed at 10pm.

Since this is a Christmas Challenge for me here are my trackers:
I will POST my status each day/week to keep track of how things are going.

I like your TIRED list. It's very effective to articulate the gritty details like that. My top TIRED item would be: I'm TIRED of shopping in the Woman's Department instead of the Petite Department. I enjoy your blog.

You are an inspiration to me! Do you realize that you are so close to the half-way point in your overall goal? That's fantastic! You can be so proud of yourself. I like that you never, never give up; you just re-group and get going again on the weight loss. Good for you!
