My New Year's Resolution - Become a MILF


I know that sounds por.no-ish, but I don't care. I want to be hot and sexy by the end of the year, and I'd love to be a mom. So if we combine those, you get a MILF. (Mother I'd like to F***, for those of you that are wondering) I want to lose at least 50 pounds, which averages out to 1 pound a week. I don't see why that would be too hard.

My exercise/workout plans -
Couch to 5K program with my husband. It's designed to get you RUNNING a 5K in 9 weeks. I'm hoping that this will be good for me and the hubby. He hasn't really been able to run since he got shot 6 yrs ago. I figured if we went slow, this would be like rehab for him, and he will be able to run again (or at least walk easier.)
Yoga EVERY DAY. Leanne, a fabulous food blogger at HealthfulPursuit.com, did a 30-day challenge, where she did yoga every day, no matter how she felt. And she realized that the days that she didn't want to go were the days she really needed it the most. And when I was doing yoga regularly, I felt great. So I'm doing my own challenge. I will do at least a 30-day challenge. I hope to make it a habit so I'll end up doing it every day without forcing myself.
GYM - We have a free gym in our apt complex. I just haven't used it. No more excuses. I'll go to the gym at least 2 times a week. I'll alternate the type of workout I do so I don't get bored. I know we have a stationary bike and weightlifting equipment. I read somewhere that cycling does more for diabetics than walking does, and I'm going to be diabetic if I don't change. I figure that it'll be easier for me to do cycling because I won't have to be standing.

Usually these exercise plans fall by the wayside because I sit down and start watching TV. So from now on, I will not turn the tv on until I have finished my workout.

My food plans -
I'm just going to start eating healthier again. I've done fairly well this week - eating a lot of salad and greens, while reducing sugar intake. I really wanted a donut a couple of days ago, but I resisted, and I'm so proud of myself. I'm learning new ways to make salads, so they don't get boring.

I know that this all sounds like something I've said before. And I would agree. I've said I was going to change my life, and not followed through. And that's a fear of mine. But I have to learn to ignore my fears if I want to change my life. I have no valid reasons or excuses for not doing it. So I'm going to kick my ass in gear - and I've got a lot of friends backing me up, supporting me, fighting for their health as well. This is our year.
We will be MILFs.
