Goals and stuff

So I have this goal with myself to be 115 by April 5th which is when my cruise is. Yes you saw that right. A cruise filled with 7 course dinners, buffets, cookies oh goodness! I will be 8 weeks out when I return. No problem because I know by May 31st I will be ready. It may kill me but i’ll be ready.

So i’m 19 weeks out right now and there are a few things I need to work on or get rid of. An hour of extra cardio, no problem been doing it. That will help a lot. Here are the things I have planned to rid myself of.

Brown Sugar Splenda-starts tomorrow
Splenda in general-looking lean involves tasteless food(i’m talking competitive lean)
Low carb ketchup-don’t use this so much anymore but it’s still there for the taking
Nuts-haven’t had these lately but they are my biggest weakness!
Newman’s light vinegarette-use only red wine vinegarette or picante sauce
Coffee-not completely but I really don’t need 5 huge cups a day which is where all the splenda comes into play

Those are all I can think of at the moment. Maybe this will help my bloat go away? I believe the Xpand is helping it stay on also. Plus I look like Casper right now and it’s not helping my self-esteem HA! I know i’m a gingerkid and they are freckle faced and pasty white but this is ridiculous. This is the first year i’ve not been to a tanning bed in 16 years!! My skin is thanking me i’m sure.

I’m not sure what I weigh right now and won’t know until Tony tells me too. I’ve got plenty of time to hit that number though. My husband tells me not to worry about that stupid number. I should listen to him but right now TOM is around the corner and I feel like being bitchy!

    Hey!! Good for you knocking all of those foods out, I like your list. I am going on a cruise at the end of April. They have actually come a long way with offering some healthy selections….if you avoid the midnight buffet you will be fine! I would LOVE a tan right now too, winter in the Northeast stinks!

  2. Colette

    Your list sounds good. Your goal is very doable and then you won’t have to stress on the cruise. You’ll be able to enjoy yourself more. 19 wks out seems like a long time, but I know how fast that will come…you will so be ready.

    Ever use sunless tan lotion? Jergans is pretty good.

    I am bitchy and TOM is not coming anytime for me. I am thinking about a cruise or some type of vacation over Spring Break (march 17th). I am not worried, I did it last year and I was just careful and workout in the gym everyday. You will be fine.

  5. Stef

    Hello. My name is Stef and I am a SPLENDA-HOLIC. Yeah, Splenda will have to go. I put it in my cottage cheese and my 4 cups(a day) of green tea.

    I had no idea Splenda caused bloat! Hmmmm…I only use it in my oatmeal at the moment. I’m so envious of your cruise! I am sure you’ll have no problem staying on track. Sounds as though you have set some excellent goals for yourself…you’re going to do great. 🙂 Thanks again for the lava cake recipe – that was a God send!! Lastly – your husband sounds like a really great guy.

    Have you ever thought of using Stevia? There are No cals, No carbs, etc. AND it’s ALL natural! I love it. It took me some time to get used to it, but I love it now! It’s actually healthy for you. It comes in a white powder and is strong, so you only need a little. I’ve heard it comes in liquid form too and in different flavors. Haven’t tried them yet.

    Your skin IS definitely thanking you right now. STAY OUT OF THE TANNING BEDS! They are WORSE than laying in the sun for hours.

    Yup, I’m DYING to know how much I weigh right now, but until Tony tells me to, I’m staying off the scale.

    I’m feeling quite bitchy these days too. Think it’s the no-carb? ‘Cause TOM is far off. Ha!

    You can totally make your goal…your a machine girl!

  9. Hage Family

    You ARE a machine girl!!! I couldn’t handle the temptation of all that yummy food on a cruise right before a comp! Hail Queen April…you da bomb!

  10. Lori

    Your husband is awesome to tell you compliments like he does. Cruise?? Soudns like so much fun and so much temptation. I’d lose it. You’re doing great.

  11. Stacey

    Ugh guess I’ll be stopping my splenda use as well 😦 How do I eat Oatmeal with out it! Oooh, I have 4 bottles of Stevia…the flavored stuff. Maybe that would be good in there?! Course I’ll have to talk to the “T” man…hell he probably doesn’t want us using anything! lol

    As for tanning I hear you on that one! But in this shity weather 2 x a week for 20 minutes is the only thing that keeps me sane! It’s either that or drugs lol 🙂

  12. Mia

    good girl not weighing until t-man says so. he knows best. you seem to have your game back! yeahh baby! splenda in my coffee, splenda in my oatmeal, splenda in my mustard…i should write a song about it (LOL)


  13. Jeannette

    I didn’t even know they had brown sugar splenda. I have been trying to cut splenda out of my diet too because it makes my mouth feel dry. I have actually been drinking coffee with just a little half and half! Good luck on your goal. I am sure you will succeed. Geez, I can’t even imagine weighing 115. At this point I would be happy to get to 170…lol1

    Cruise? Did someone say Cruise??? :-)It was -2 this morning here in Kansas and I’m soooooooo ready for Spring! 🙂

  15. Stacey

    Woot Tony said I could keep my splenda…I told him I loved him. lol! 🙂

  16. thirtysomething

    I’m keeping all my sweetners too!! God, I think I would have to quit if I had to give them up…this girl loves her sweets, I’ll join Mia in her song, I love splenda in my mustard too, I thought I was the only one!

    BTW, don’t let TOM get the best of you…I know easier said than done…but you are looking fabulous, and I think you look good with your peachy, creamy skin!! I know it’s kind of tough to see the muscle right now, but it’s there, and it’s growing!!

    It won’t be long and you will be all cut up in your tiny little bling bling bikini!!
