Ready To Go

I am so excited to write but I am getting started a little late & I have to be up early for work. Tomorrow is a double so it is going to be a long one. I work 9-3 & then 3:45-11:30. If I don't post now, it will be Wednesday night before I can.

Before I get started I want to thank everyone for all of the kind words over the last few days. I know that many of you also reached out to Adam to wish him a Happy Father's Day & that really means a lot to me. He is an amazing father to Kayleigh & it is my pleasure to honor him for her. I feel like I want to keep babbling here, but I will just leave it at that. Nothing is coming out in words the way it is in my head.

This weekend was great. We did a lot of hanging out on Saturday due to the over cast sky & not beach friendly weather. We had hamburgers for dinner & went to get doughnuts for breakfast this morning. I was trying to live it up before the diet started.

Today we spent the day at the beach & all of us are feeling it. Even though I am darker than I have ever been in my life, I am still sporting a gorgeous lobster red color this evening. Luckily, I am not hurting too badly though. We had a nice dinner, went to the store to stock up on yummy diet food, & then we walked nearly three miles on the loop.

The kids helped me portion out my oatmeal for the next three weeks, make rice, get blueberries together, & portion green beans. I am pretty set & pretty excited actually. Did I just say that? Excited to eat bland, plain, food....YES! I don't know why, but I really am. I feel like something bigger is going to happen here.

Tomorrow is going to be tricky with dinner because I only have 45 minutes to drive home, take out the dogs, change, & get to job two. I can't really eat dinner then. It will have to be a snack. Eating dinner for me is at midnight & I don't care how healthy the food, I don't feel good about eating & crawling in bed. But, I will be starving so I think I am going to do some egg whites. Any other ideas anyone?

I won't be able to do any exercise either over the next two days, but I guarantee that I get my workout at the restaurant. Heavy trays, running back & forth, up & down stairs, sweating from the heat, etc. Not working out won't be a problem. LOL

I was just thinking as I was writing all of this that I need some support. Who is it going to be? Who is going to jump out of their comfort zone & do some serious life changing for the next month? A simple 30 days. Will it be you? I need you!

  1. I have a suggestion for your late night dinners. If you can, one day make a meal or two with more than one serving then divide those meals into individual servings and store in microwavable containers. When you get home super late and don't want to cook just throw one of your meals in the microwave and you'll still be eating healthy.

  2. Well I have to say Aimee that I am starting tomorrow as well! 1000-1200 calories per day! It's going to be hard but I have 50 to lose! I will do it with you let's be cyber buddies!! LOL Good luck!

  3. Hello Aimee,

    I would love to join you!! I need accountability big time. I am tired of being fluffy but can't seem to get started. I eat healthy food but I am an emotional eater. I might get stressed and eat too much oatmeal.:) Need to be a better example for my kiddos. Tomorrow is day 1; we better get busy.:)I will post my meals and exercise in a note on my blog as often as possible. I have enjoyed your blog for a while; thanks for blogging about this. I stopped beating myself up and said that energy would be better spent re-grouping.:)

  4. Aimee I'll do it with you! I am still trying to loose 40 lbs left over from having my baby 20 months ago and it is time for me to get serious! I need to be healthy for me and my family and am also in the process of making some serious life changes. I am actually looking forward to this!!

  5. It sounds like you had a wonderful Father's Day.

  6. Hi Aimee, this is day 21 for me...well, sort of. It is SOO hard. I did good for the first 7. And I haven't eaten many desserts or bread either, which is good for me. I am trying to grasp on to the fact that if I happen to eat one piece of pizza, at least I didn't eat two, and so on. I will join you. :) Good luck lady. :)
