Summer Goal

I have been doing WW on and off since last November.  With that (mostly) and some other diets, I am down 23 pounds. 

By the time school starts (Aug 13th) I am hoping to be down to my halfway point- 30 pounds.  Between now and then I have trip to Chattanooga to see my bff, Chelsea, a cruise, a cheerleading camp to coach, the Irish Picnic (which is a fundraiser for the school I teach at, they cook thousands and thousands of pounds of BBQ and there is a whole lot of drinking), and a cookie dough fundraiser delivery.  Just your every day obstacles to hurdle.

Here is how I am going to do it:
  • Track WW Points Daily
  • Zumba 2+ times a week (since it have been in the upper 90's-100's the past week or two, I have not gone running outside, I am saving that for the fall)
  • Lots more fruits and veggies, which are zero points on WW
  • Bigger lunches later in the day
  • Smaller dinners
  • Drink a whole lot of water

If I make this goal, I am going to purchase what I have in my shopping cart at Swell Caroline.  This lovely necklace and bracelet is what I currently have in it.  Pretty good incentive :)


  1. We should eat at Taco Mama! I don't know if you have had their chopped salad but it's delicious. The only things that would be points (and not a lot) are the tortilla strips, jimica, and dressing which is a honey lime vin.

  2. CONGRATS on your weightloss! I am also trying to lose weight on WW and I took over a week off but your post reminded me to get back at it.

  3. I love Zumba!! I've been trying to do it 2-3 times a week this summer, too. Best of luck with the rest of your weight loss. The bracelet and necklace are both gorgeous.


  4. Definitely good incentive. Last summer I lost 10 lbs, and now I am at a weight I can be proud of. Over the summer, I try to eat small meals. When I get hungry, I eat fruit/something healthy. If you eat something every 2 hours, you have less incentive to snack on junk food. Cooking also helps a lot, because then you see everything that is going into your food.

  5. Zumba is fun as well. I try to jog everyday, but the heat is a bit much.
    And I just started following you. Follow me back if you like my blog!
