Day One

I know I said I thought New Year's was over-rated, and I still do, but the idea of having a fresh clean slate to work with is quite nice. And that's exactly what I am doing. I'm forgetting about what I've done or haven't done. I'm moving on and today is my Day One. 

I'd like to continue with my thought of having a bucket-list for the year but would like to focus on breaking that down a little bit more.  Mini-goals, if you will. 

Today's Goal: Food Journal. I already logged breakfast and lunch onto LoseIt  Well, I did log onto LoseIt but there's been a problem with my getting logged on the site so I created an account over at MyFitnessPal. If you'd like to follow me, I'm LosingMyScrap. 

Weekly Goal: Get back onto the bike. I haven't been able to do any cardio with my coughing so much. My thinking is that by Friday I should be well enough to do more cardio. 

Goals for January: 
1. Log most of my meals. I would love to say all my meals but you know I'm bound to miss one. If I log 5-6 days out of the week, I think I'll be fine. 

2. By next week I'd like to use the time that I have in the gym. Damon was nice enough to set up the deal that I could use the cardio equipment for 30 mins one my gym days. So long as my lungs cooperate, I'd like to use that time wisely! 

3. Walk on the treadmill on at least one"off day". I work with Damon 3 days a week, the least I could do is another of cardio.  I'll work my way up to 2-3 cardio days. 

4. This one is rough. I would like to get off the diet soda. I know all the bad things it does to your health....I'm just an addict. Hello. My name is Jenn and I'm addicted to diet soda. 

5. Juice 3 days a week. I'm not sure if I mentioned this before or not (sorry, pressed for time or I'd look) but I bought a juicer a few months back. We use it a lot on the weekends to make some sort of fruit juice to go with breakfast. I would like to take it a step further and really get into veggie juicing.  

Well, I think that's a lot to swallow for one month. Let's see how it all unfolds. 


  1. I heard someone say if you stop drinking diet soda for a year, you are guaranteed to lose 20 pounds just from that. Not sure if it's true or not, but an extra 20 off the scale sounds pretty nice. I drink those diet teas once in a while, the're pretty good.

    1. It's a bit true what they say about the WL. I've kicked-the-habit before and found that I ate a lot less when I didn't have the artificial sweeteners running through my veins. It's easier said than done! But, it can be done. (tomorrow - HAHA!)

  2. I want to wean myself off pop (I'm from MI, we call it that!)too. It's going to be tough, since that's how I get myself going at work. It's not that I'm thirsty, I just like it!

    Good luck on all your goals!

  3. Good luck working towards your goals this month!
