Ahhh yes ..time flies when you try to avoid...

Obviously I've not been actively working on my FRUMP-ness.

Needless to say I've made little progress. All week I've been deep in thought about this. I know my weight has gone up as I've been eating such poor choices and in such poor proportions. This morning I woke up thinking it was time to get on the scale... then wanting to wait a week until I'd hopefully lost some of the weight.

I tried that 2 weeks ago and it didn't work.

I got up. Got rid of whatever water weight I could. And pulled out the scale. Took a deep breath and decided that I would accept whatever # came up as I needed a starting place. I estimated it at about 10-15lbs over my last weigh in. Then said a very quick prayer of gratitude when it was only 4lbs higher then that. If you could see what I've been eating you'd understand that well, lol.

This morning I went back on my Take Shape For Life program. This enabled me to drop nearly 30lbs in the early summer. I am also a health coach for the program and I want to go back to being an active health coach. The earning potential was mind blowing then.. and I'd like that back, lol. If only to give me the funds for the wardrobe that I so badly need ;).

Today I'm setting goals and making a list of action steps to take each day. I'll share them here so that I always have them around... and so you can see what I am doing.

1) No more eating in front of the computer. This is my bad place as the fridge is just a few steps away. Only things allowed will be Medifast meals or water.
2) 5 Medifast meals every day as part of the Take Shape For Life (TSFL) protocol.
3) Healthy dinner proportins if not a 'lean and green' meal
4) incorporate more raw foods into my days
5) Each week the scale must go DOWN. Doesn't have to be a lot. Just as long as its consistently going down
6) this first set of goals in in effect for 6 weeks - yep until the end of the year. Then new goals for January
7) must write accomplishments and progress on at least a weekly basis in here

Action Steps:
1) PLan work outfits for the week on Sunday - including any jewelry
2) Make sure all clothes are clean, pressed and ready to go
3) Always reach for a medifast meal before the fridge
4) Search for easy in home exercise programs and start with 1 day per week. Each week add a second day or an additional 10 min

thats all i can think of right now. Got suggestions? leave them :) I need help getting my FRUMP in gear!
