reSolution Sunday wk3

OK.. so, 3 weeks down in 2011... and It's time to come clean, fess up, and see how well we did with our little goals last week...

I've started out with just three...
  • Lose weight.... (my goal is to reach 150... Stop laughing.. lol/// HEY I started out at 299...)
    • 12/31 .... 189.6 lbs 
    • 1/7......... 186.3lbs
    • 1/14....... 185.7lbs 
    • 1/21........ 181.1lbs

  • What I did?  Well, hubby's been diagnosed with high blood pressure so we have cut out red meat, added a lot of veggies, and I have been trying to cook with less salt.  I'm assuming more adjustment WILL be made.. /sigh/ I LOVE food..  BUT, we've gone from eating fast food at least 8 times or more a week (two years ago) to maybe 1 every 2 weeks.. is pretty good, I think..
    We have all been sick this whole week, so NO working out... I can totally see the difference that makes.. /sigh/  ... BUT  We DID recieve the Kinect as a gift and I'm sooooo looking forward to trying out ZUMBA.... Hopefully we'll get back n track next week..

  • Get out of debt... (YEAH RIGHT!!! But I can try to do better, as I've been trying for years, and will for years to come.. Cycle of life.. lol)..
    • I was able to totally pay off ONE more credit card and reduce the interest rate on another to 5%.... Slow and steady, but we'll get THERE.. lol
    • The Budget HAS been made... and we have been able to adhere to it..
    • I've been doing MORE mystery shopper jobs..
    • Smarter shopping and couponing..If you want you can check out more money saving / making ideas HERE...
    • I have been diligently planning my menus.. you can check out of Menu plan Mondays. posts and see our recipes there...  I REALLY should start revising them to the healthier versions we've been using..

  • Be the best mom I can be... (Shouldn't I be doing that ANYWAYS? and for the REST of my life?? ) 
  •  Enrolled the gremlins in a few classes @ the Y they aren't doing as well as I hope, and you can read more about that HERE...
    Have started doing Bento lunches to get them to try new foods... They have been really receptive to this idea... and I find I can usually get them to consume the healthier less received foods this way..(really should post about that.. I know soooo many mommas struggling with picky eaters)

    Do you make resolutions? Do you keep them?
