Goal #1: Keep a handle on my eating.
If I am eating well, I feel good. If I eat junk, I feel bad. Duh. Besides feeling bad, eating poorly also causes my pants to not fit properly (and my underwear...which truth be told bothers me more...tight undies causes me to suffer from 4-cheek syndrome. You know. Where the panty line cuts my rear-end into four butt-cheeks instead of two. Classy.) and my skin to look like I'm 14 again. And causes me to bring out the control top panty hose instead of cute tights with my dresses to control mommy-tummy (yep, I still blame my kids for that, not the food. So wrong). To kick this off, I'm joining runwithjess's Diet Bet
I'm hoping this works in the same way that when I challenged myself to run a race a month and register ahead of time I actually do it. I forked over $10 to join this, and I don't want to lose that money. It's not a lot...but HEY! It's mine! We've had weight loss competitions at work before, and each time I hit my goal, or very close. The problem: I've hit my goal each time. As in...once it's over my bad eating habits creep back in. Usually this time of year. It's not as bad this year, since I've had my year of running, but this month has been not so good for me on the running front (as I sit here typing and drinking coffee instead of hitting the treadmill...I will when I'm done. I swear! I have my virtual 5K to complete!) so my clothes are feeling it.
Do you have any goals set yet? Do you do the goal-setting New Year's thing?
