Good Intentions

Do you ever have these great plans and the time to do it, but you just cannot get motivated to do it? Well, that is how this summer has been for me in one certian area. See before school got out, I was all motivated with the Weight Watcher thing that had been working so well for me and had big summer make over plans.

My first plan was this

Several of the ladies that I work with did it and actually competed in some races. I have always wanted to run but cannot get from one telephone pole to the other because I cannot run and breathe at the same time.

I also planned to get more

So unless you count the fried squash, fried potatoes, fried okra, and fried sweet potatoes I have cooked. Oh, don't forget the strawberries (cake mix) for the strawberry bonbons, I haven't eaten a lot of these.

After about two weeks into summer vacation I saw this on TV one morning when I should have been out running. I decided that I could do that. Kellie had it and loved it. She also has a super cute figure even after two babies. All I had to do was follow the plan for 6 weeks (which was right up until school started back) and I most likely could have been a size smaller. Well, I did it for three or four days.

Now here it is 2 weeks until I go back to school, I am nothing more than this

Make room on that couch for this potato too! I know how you feel. I want so much to do better but I just don't want to do the things that will make me better. Maybe we can encourage each other and be looking fab by Fall Break! :)

At least you aren't wasting money on a gym membership you don't use! I keep paying, thinking when Jasper starts back to school, it will be easier to just go with Sawyer. I guess we'll see. lol

Girl....make room for me on the couch! I had good intentions as well, bought a good sports bra and got an iPod. I was ready to hit the pavement......well, at least that was plan! :) Wishful thinkin'

I am with you. I had so many summer plans and now school is 3 weeks away and I feel like I haven't accomplished anything!

I need to copy this and put it on my blog b/c every word would be true for me too. I am the queen of good intentions!
Really cute post, by the way.

I'm with you on this one! I feel terrible that I haven't done any better. Maybe soon we will all get more motivated!

You look great Leanne! It always seems easier for me to eat good and be healthier when I'm at work. When you're home and vacationing it's just hard to get in the mindset. You needed a little break after doing so well on Weight Watchers anyway. There's always tomorrow!
