10 in 2010 ~ Week 1

I signed up at for her program: 10 in 2010.  It's 10 weeks to achieve healthy goals and you can join up and post about it (or not) as you go.  This appealed to me for a few reasons: Lori is a food blogger and doens't believe in totally depriving yourself; I need to refocus my weight-loss efforts and 10 weeks would be a good start; You set your own goals for this program.  Feel free to join up over there and participate or just follow along with me here if you like.

Here are my goals:
1.  To lose at least 15 pounds.
2.  To be more fit/healthy with more energy.
3.  To be motivated to continue program beyond 10 weeks.

Here's my plan to achieve my goals:
 ~ Continue Weight Watchers and attend meeting/weigh-in once a week.
 ~ Track all food eaten with WW points tracker.
 ~ Do Wii Fit Plus (or other exercise) at least 3 times/week for 45 minutes or more.
 ~ Go to bed by 11pm on weeknights (that is early for me - I have a bad habit of staying up too late).
 ~ Drink at least 3 glasses of water every day (I don't like drinking water, so even that will be tough.)
 ~ Plan out meals ahead of time each week.

I think that's a good start!  This is not going to be easy for me.  I have been struggling and this will require some self-discipline which I haven't been good with lately! 

I'll post about my progress on Saturdays and will post a healthy recipe each week and any other random posts that come along.  If you need more healthy meal ideas to help you along, check out my labels on my sidebar (or click on these links): breakfasts, side dishes, dinners, snacks and desserts.

Are you with me?  I know I can achieve my goals with encouragment and support!  What are your goals?  Let's help each other!  We CAN do it friends!  :)

Have a great healthy weekend!

  1. You can totally do it!!!!!! I look forward to hearing about your progress :o)

  2. Did you go to WW this week? Goal setting was what the topic was. You've got some very attainable goals on your list.

    My goals: Get back to tracking starting tomorrow; work out as my Wii Active tells me too (I'm doing a 30 day challenge and it schedules my day's off); drink my water.

    Tracking is my biggest "off the wagon" thing... it so much easier when I track!

  3. You can do it! I have a bunch of WW recipes on my site if you like to cook. Will be doing a chicken that is converted to points tomorrow on my blog too. I love that you said I'm not into depriving myself. I love food- it's hard to limit intake & baked goods for me :) We can do this w/ support from each other!

  4. I would like to lose ten lbs in the next short while, bringing me down to 150. And after losing that ten, I plan on treating myself with something. Like maybe a special book or a new dress or something. I rarely treat myself to anything, so looking forward to a special treat is a good incentive for me.

    I'm eating according to The Eden Diet and working out with the Walk At Home DVD series. I feel great with both!

  5. Sounds like a great plan. Count me in for eating and beieng healthier this year. I'm off to check out recipegirl.
    Happy New Year!

  6. You can do it! I love your goals. :) I could have written them for myself.

  7. Those are great goals. Mine are pretty similar...


Leave a comment and say hello! I'd love to hear from you!
