Top 2 Tuesday...

Top 2 Things you want to accomplish before the end of the year

I really like this topic. Most of the time, we set goals in January and don't review them until December. (Ok, I do at least.) I really want to change this, and review my goals quarterly. I also read somewhere printing them out and looking at them on a daily basis helps. Done and done. Does that count as one?

1. Lose 25 Pounds...seriously
Even though I HATE math, I used my skills to figure this one out. There are 14 weeks (-2 that I will be on vacation...not counting that to be realistic) until the end of the year. That is approximately 1.79 pounds per week. Totally do-able if you really think about it. I just need to use those sweet math skills I just demonstrated and stay on my POINTS. Daily 1 hour cardio sessions will help also!!!! I just need to make myself a priority. 

I usually hate posting the exact amount of how much I want to lose, but I feel like it's necessary. I need my family and friends help. If I say no to having dinner with you, don't be offended. I can't be trusted with a menu of temptation. Glass of wine, yes. Dinner, notsomuch. Thanks in advance.

2. See #1
I don't want to get too over-zealous here. I'm making a commitment, and I think 25 pounds will incorporate a lot. Cooking healthy meals at home, working out and making myself a priority. Let's focus on that and re-evaluate in January. :)


  1. Yay for taking charge! Let me know if you want to kick-ass workout ideas...WARNING, they will make you sore as hell, but thats good right?!

  2. Good luck with your goals!!! Losing weight is one of my goals as well! :)

  3. You can do it!!! I posted about weight loss today, too. It is very frustrating for me but if I can lose it, I'm happy.

    I wish you the very best of success!!

  4. Hi there! Losing weight/being healthier was one of my top 2 too! Are you doing WW too? I saw you mention points. I know how hard it is, but you're right! If you just think 1.79 a week - totally doable! Good luck!

  5. Thanks everyone! I appreciate your words of encouragement. :)

  6. You can totally do it! I have the same goal. And friend and family support is so important - especially with the temptation. But like I said, you cant totally do it :)


I love your comments!
