A woMAN with a plan...

I have been completely off of WW for the past 2 weeks, eating any and everything in sight. I haven't stepped on a scale either...afraid of what it is going to tell me. I have known that the chaos must stop, and I guess I've been prepping myself....gathering health magazines, healthy recipes, etc. I've been really unorganized the past few weeks and I think that has alot to do with my recent binge. I just started my last semester of classes and they are hard. Harder than I remember my last few semesters being. I don't know if it's the pressure of needing to pass them in order to graduate in December, or what....but I am usually in a groove by now and I'm not. I don't feel prepared for my first exams I'll be taking next week and I don't know what to do about it. Maybe after I take the first exams and know how the tests are set up I will relax a bit and find what schedule works for me...but until then, pray that I pass these first exams!!

As I mentioned, I haven't been planning. So I just a rough list of how I would like to structure my days. Maybe if I type it out, print it and tape it on the fridge, in my bathroom, on the tv....I'll have a better chance of doing what I planned.

Here's my tentative plan:

EXERCISE. (one of my classes is Health Identification and Management, and right now I'm studying heart disease and the causes of it. It's scaring the crap out of me.)
-I plan to do my WATP video 5 times a week. I'll start with the 2 mile and work my way to the 3 mile. I know that doesn't sound like much, but I'm so out of shape, I need to start somewhere. After I have mastered the 3 mile, I will add pilates/yoga 3 times a week.

-I am going to (try) to get up a few mintues before Mason in the morning so I can stretch, breathe, and just wake up. I will also do this after he goes to bed at night.

-I'm going to make sure that Mason gets enough time everyday to practice counting, ABC's, art, reading, etc.
-I will make a list of 3 tasks/chores to get done that day...otherwise nothing gets done!

-I'm going to listen to music everyday. It makes me happy.
-I'm going to take at least 30 min. a day for me; paint my nails, read, take a bath, etc.
-I'm going to plan my meals before I grocery shop for the week so that I don't buy junk.
-I'm going to go to bed by 11pm when possible so I get enough sleep.

I would like to lose 30 lbs. by December....I graduate in December and would like to buy a new dress :)

Planning is KEY for me. If I do not plan I mess up my whole week. lol You are a busy gal!! I like your plan for yourself- good job on working in the relaxation and bedtime. Sleep is very important! :)

I have to plan if I don't plan then I fail and I don't like to fail at anything. That is why being overweight is so challenging for me. You can do this...plan, plan, plan and if you are paying for WW go to your meetings! I have learned that the meetings are key to getting me where I need to be. ;)
