Slim Down Now

slim down now

It’s been awhile!  There’s been a new book (here’s a link on Amazon)…the plan is okay but I have done the dark chocolate pulse pudding cleanse many times.  My husband and I call it “the bean pudding diet”.  I also tried a few recipes that I liked.  I’ve been busy with moving and real estate and haven’t had time to update this blog.  You can check out what I’ve been up to at my youtube channel Here


Goals will Change Your Life!

“Goals will change your life!”  -Dave Ramsey

I’ve been trying to catch Dave Ramsey’s radio program as much as I can.  I was lucky enough to catch it Monday, January 2nd after New Year’s Eve.  He started it with the 5 things that make goals work:

  1. Specific
  2. Measurable
  3. Yours
  4. Time Limit
  5. Put it in writing

So, my current goal is to lose 21 lbs and my reward will be to get $1050 out of our household budget for shopping!  See the post here.

  • I did make it specific-lose weight
  • I did make it measurable-21 lbs
  • I did make it mine-I want it to happen.  I’m not doing it for anyone else.
  • Time limit-crap.  maybe I should have an end game here.  I missed this one.
  • Put it in writing-it’s on my blog for all the world to see.  duh!

So, I’m going to go easy on myself and have a goal of 1 lb a week.  I tried for 2 lbs before and rarely hit it.  So, I have 21 weeks from Jan 2nd to lose 21 lbs.

Time Limit-May 27th

So, I have until Memorial Day weekend to hit my goal.  Perfect timing to hit up holiday sales with my $1050 for summer shopping.

I hope this helps.  Dave Ramsey also says handling money is 80% behavior & only 20% head knowledge.  I’m thinking it’s 90/10 with losing weight!  Here’s his website if you’d like to take a look.
