November Goal & pics

Monday, October 31, 2011

I have one goal for November and if I can achieve this goal then my other goals will fall into place, simple as that.

My goal for November is to control my calories, set a decent range and stay within it using healthy meal choices . I will be working hard this month to stay within my calorie range, because this is my hardest struggle. I do fairly well with cardio and ST so calories are my nemesis.
I am also setting my weekend calories slightly higher than through the week. This is realistic for me and will allow me to be a little fuller or have a small treat on the weekends.
I will also allow myself a break day on Thanksgiving. It's unrealistic for me to think I will not be cooking and eating our traditional meals and treats. I'm tired of unrealistic goals but very realistic failures. Time to get real and start reaching for goals I know I can achieve. Setting goals I know I can live with. One meal, One Day at a time. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

This is what I had for breakfast including a large mug of coffee ( no pic) and the entire meal was 280 calories. I got in 2 servings of veggies and one serving of fruit with this breakfast along with some protein and carbs. What a way to start the day! And I still have 1050 calories left. I will choose wisely, it all starts with the choices I make.

Egg Beater omelette with turkey ham onions, bell peppers , curry and fresh spinach.

    Your breakfast looks wonderful! Hope you're continuing to attain your realistic goals! They sound very doable!
    I'm off for an LS workout now (watching StarGate SG1- Season 3 now!) Say 'hi' to LS for me when you 'see' her next (which I'm sure will be soon!) LOL!!!

    BTW, I LOVE your backsplash page (heart full of veggies)... are you a graphic artist or something similar? Or did you just happen to find the perfect graphic somewhere?

    Oh yummy! Your breakfast looks soooo good. Great take on realistic goals. I like your line "Unrealistic goals and realistic failures" - well put!

    I totally agree with you. Somehow we seem to get pushed into unrealistic expectations that we just will not achieve. I think you have great goals and with your weekend allowance being higher you can do this! I agree on Thanksgiving also. I'm going to skip any extras I don't love and take a walk or two after lunch/dinner. Your breakfast looks great and I'd never heard of that drink but it has GREAT stats!

    Breakfast looks great! I love food blogs!! Are there any you check out frequently? Thanksgiving is what started my downward spiral last year (I slowly gained 12# and am still fighting them!)

    Great goals for November! I agree that nutrition plays a huge part in success with weight loss. I've been amazed how much I have learned from the last three months of tracking my nutrition. It sounds like you are going about this in a reasonable way. I know for Thanksgiving that I will go over my normal calorie range, but I'm okay with that. I won't stuff myself, but I will enjoy some pie!
