Is This Diet Over Yet?!

Day 3:

I did it!! I stuck within my allowed points yesterday. I was too sore to work out, but hey, one day at a time. I am planning to go out to dinner after work tonight, so I made sure to walk this morning. I walked to the store and back for a total of 25 minutes. With the weekend coming tomorrow I know that the pressure will be on to do my best.

Confessions Of A Dieting Party Girl

Day 2:
I'm not really off to a great start. I said I wasn't going to be perfect, so at least I was right. I did have a success, I finally made it all the way through the first mission on Fitness Ultimatum 2011. I am sooooo sore!! In a good way though.
As far as diet goes it was a high point day! First there was wine tasting. Have I mentioned I love wine? Then there was dinner out which I also love. And of course, more wine. In the end I used 48 points. Unfortunately, my daily limit is 29. The upside is I did track my points even though I didn't like what I saw. That's a huge improvement.
I'm too sore to workout today, but I feel confident I can keep my points in check. I'm never going to stop going out so I just have to learn to adapt. Now it's time for more Advil and my heating pad:)

What Happens When a Party Girl Goes On A Diet?

Day One:
What happens when a party girl goes on a diet? Well, I guess we're going to find out. This party girl is pushing 40 and maximum density!!! I have been pretending to be on a diet for years. You know the routine, diet 4-5 days per week and do whatever you want the rest of the time. I am going to document my fresh start. I'm not going to be perfect, no one is, but I'm going to write it down anyway.
I'm going to recommit to Weight Watchers. I know this program can work for me if I follow it. I'm going to count my points even when I go way over!!! Usually I just bag it for the week the minute it's inconvenient or discouraging.
I am going to set my exercise goal at 30 minutes per day 4 days per week to start. I love to walk and I just bought Jillian Michaels for the Wii, Fitness Ultimatum 2011. I really don't like to exercise to be honest. I do, however, love wine.
My biggest hurdle will be me. I love to have fun!! I consider going out to eat and drinking with friends to be the best form of entertainment. I work in media and it's a very social industry. In addition I really enjoy my coworkers. I know these are great "problems" to have.
My goal is to combine my party lifestyle with a diet and fitness routine that will help me meet my goals. I'll drink to that!
