Welcome! My name is Mrs.G and I started this blog so people could share in my mis-adventures in wedding planning. I married my southern gentleman on September 6th, 2009. Throughout our courtship I became enamored with everything southern and desperately want to become a steel magnolia.

The Healthy Life: The plan

Well everyone it is done. The plan is in place and I think it is totally doable. With help from the world wide web and one of the healthiest people this is what I came up with:

These are the goals:
Eating and lifestyle:
stay within 1200-1400 calorie range
Eat lower calorie and lower fat foods
Eat moderate carbs
Switch to whole grain
Keep a food journal (started yesterday)
Drink lots of water and tea instead of soda
Really read and learn the good and bad things to look for on a nutrition label

6 days a week; 3 of aerobic, 3 of strength training (alternating)
Start with 30 min exercises and increase time at my own speed

as promised here are starting pictures...... le sigh.

Yes I am standing on my toilet. I told Hubs about the blogging aspect of this weight loss crusade and told him that he better get a new memory card for our camera stat so I don't have to use my crappy phone pictures anymore. you can clearly see the areas I am going to be targeting in my workouts... ahem mid section.

P.S. I look preggers in this picture. Now I remember why I don't take pictures from the side.....

I will go ahead and say it. As you can tell this is going to take a lot of work. But, this time it just feels different, I feel more determined than I ever have to follow through and get healthy.
Does anyone have any good suggestions for books on this subject matter? Not Diet books per say but lifestyle books? Is that being to picky?
There you go bloggies, have a wonderful day and see you back tomorrow for another installment of the Healthy life.
