Grace In Small Things part 13 and 14 out of 365 January 15, 2009
So here it is. The big announcement I alluded to on Tuesday. Thursdays will forever be known as Thin Thursdays. I will be posting Thin Thursdays on both blogs because I need the accountability. I am parlaying Thin Thursday with 21 days in order to achieve the maximum results. You will realize that 21 days will have to change…. every 21 days. The goal is to incorporate new healthy and fun habits into your life. (and if you want to know yes the cardio is going fab.)
Well where should we start? Oh you want to know how much I weigh? Dream on. I am ashamed of my weight so we are not focusing on the actual number. We are focusing on the total amount lost. Let the word FATASS represent my weight. Each week there will be a +1/-1 whatever on my weight. I may never tell you what I way. I hate what I weigh and I have friends reading this thing! A girl has to have a little privacy.
Lets move on to the weigh-in
Ah FATASS. Just what I expected. Now I am not combating my fatassedness alone. I have a fat doctor who I will begin seeing on Monday to aid in my weight-loss. Now when I say fat doctor I do not mean she is overweight. She specifically deals with weight issues and guess what- is a real doctor. Not one of those weight loss centers that make you take B12 shots and drink shakes. A real doctor. I am so excited I can hardly contain myself! Keep up with my weight loss and give me feedback.

- Lean pockets meatball sub.
- Big O and Dukes making me laugh during a mundane job.
- Believing in the 21 days.
- Super cold drinking water.
- My silly kitties.
There have been studies showing that it takes 21 days to create a new habit. Why on Earth would anyone want to create a habit you ask? Think about good habits-exercise, drinking more water, eating one extra serving of vegetables a day. You want to get yourself in the habit of incorporating these types of things automatically into your daily life. Many even use the 21 days to create a new habit to replace an old habit.
My 21 days will focus on cardio exercise. Why cardio specifically? I have small weights at home where I get a little strength in every day. Nothing major, but enough to have a quick toning workout. I do 30 pushups every morning and planks as well. My goal is vanity. I want to look hawt. I am overweight, but surprisingly in pretty good shape. I enjoy running, therefore my goal is to do some type of running/walking for an hour everyday for 21 days. According to research, the fastest way to lose weight is an hour of cardio per day. Hopefully it will turn into a habit. This is a prequel to something that will be unveiled on Thursday (Thanks Kelly !)

I am eating how much? January 6, 2009
According to this handy tool on Glamour.com I am eating 2242 calories a day! Holy hell I didn’t even realize it! I mean I do a lot of running so I am hungry a lot. I guess I am not burning as much as I thought. The first step is to knock out 250 calories a day. That is simple. A pudding cup, bowl of soup, a fiber one bar lol.
