Think Thin Thursdays (I'm a little late!)

Well, I think I'm going to join this movement! Bridgette at the Not-So-Blog, Blog is hosting "Think Thin Thursdays" a blog "party" of women trying to lose weight this year. Each week there will be a topic to post about & goals to set. Then, on the following Thursday, we'll all come back & determine whether or not we met the goals & encourage/support/help each other.

This week's topic is to write about your resolutions. I've already done that, but I'll recap!

#7 Clean the walls throughout the house. Possibly repaint the house as well. This is definitely something I want to do when we do our big remodel that we're planning for Spring Break.

#6 Put together the cradle Dad bought us.

#5 Get a hair TRIM at least every other month. Tim is my beautician and he has been lacking. I have to cut his hair every 2 weeks like clockwork...but mine gets pushed to the wayside.

#4 Bathe the dogs at least once a month. We suck at this. Mostly because there are 3 dogs & none of them "love" bath-time.

#3 Lose weight. That would be the reason for joining Think Thin Thursdays! I currently weigh around 195 pounds. I float a couple pounds up and down depending on the time of the month & how "good" I've been. I am five feet two inches. According to an online BMI Chart, my BMI is 36. That's really bad & I'm labeled as "obese." This is not cool. According to the same chart a normal BMI for a woman is 18.5-24.9 which for me translates to 104-131 pounds. So, my goal for TOTAL weight loss would be 77 pounds. WOW, that's like a lot. I haven't honestly looked at that in a long time. (Target Weight=118 lbs) So far, I've quit drinking caffiene drinks & trying to eat a little better overall. I got Rollerblades for Christmas and can't wait to break them in! I'm really hoping it's something I can do & get 30 minutes of exercise 3 times a week.

#2 Grade papers. The week I assign them. And then get them back to my students. I kind of suck at this & I REALLY need to get better at it, so that I can do well in my job.

#1 Get pregnant. Sometime this year. If I don't get pregnant, start the adoption process.

My goal for this week is to drink less than 24 oz of caffiene daily. So far so good!
