Transformation Thursday: A New Beginning

Happy New Year's Day! I've decided that this year I want to be healthier (among other things) and I know I do better at just about everything if I'm accountable to someone so every Thursday I will be posting about my progress in transforming myself. The idea for a weekly post evolved out of my love for Dear Kid Saturday, over at the Cutest Kid Ever blog. (I'll be writing my weekly letter as well, she's such an inspiration!) I was talking to Cindy at Love My Joes and she came up with the title, she's a smart one ;)

Alrighty, so here are a few of the things I'll be doing this year.
  • 30 min of cardio 5x per week
  • Wii balance games daily min of 2x per game
  • Wii yoga 3x per week min of 2x per pose
  • Wii strength 3x per week min of 2x per exercise.
  • Lose 60lbs (unless I get preggers then I'll try to maintain)
  • Weigh in weekly and post my +/- here. Not telling you what I weigh, unlike Cindy. Maybe after I get down to thin again I'll do before and after weights but not now. No way.
  • Grow and eat my own produce (hubby bought me an Aero Garden for Christmas, pretty excited as I have a notorious black thumb)

Other things I'm going to try out include weekly meatless meals and trying new fruits and veggies and learning to eat healthier overall. I had horrid role models growing up so it is a bit like learning to walk when you are 30, uhm 31.

Right. I really hope you will want to play along and have your own Transformation Thursday posts to share your progress. If you do check out the Transformation Thursday tab :)

I can, I will, I am!

Yay! Go us! Only reason I said what I weigh is because I don't really know anyone (in person) who will read it; but at least I'm told I don't look like I weigh as much as I do! LOL

I'm in!

New Year, New Mommy?

You should consider adding a Mr Linky each week for participants to sign. :-)
