A Friendly Reminder to Myself

I think it's time for a friendly reminder to myself.

September Goals:

Lose 5 lbs.
- This summer, I gained 12 pounds. I went from 233 lbs. to 245 lbs. fairly quickly. In August, I lost 7 pounds of the summer weight gain, and I am going to work on losing the other 5 pounds of that gain in September.

Post weekly weigh-in photos
- Posting weekly weigh-in photos keeps me accountable for my actions.

Post dinner meal plans and workout plans weekly
- Because a goal without a plan is just a wish.

Keep a food journal daily
- For even more accountability, I have made my food journal public. You can see it: here!

Week One Weigh-In:

I'm up .8 lbs. right now, and with the week I had last week, it's no wonder I'm not up more. I haven't been keeping a food journal or going with any sort of dinner and workout plans. That's going to change right now, though! It may be Wednesday, but that's no reason not to start getting back on track today.

Dinner Meal Plans:

Wednesday: Chicken Stir Fry
Thursday: Sausage with collared greens, mushrooms and onions
Friday: Chicken Salads
Saturday: Homemade Pizza

Workout Plans:

Wednesday: Yoga
Thursday: Treadmill
Friday: Yoga
Saturday: Rest

Readers, it's time for a mid-week check! How are you doing with your goals? What friendly reminders do you need for yourself?


  1. Great meal and exercise plans! You can do this!!

  2. You can do it! It is so hard to stay on track!
