52 Mondays came to me in a fit of New years resolution fury. It seems I am always starting my "diet" or exercise plan on "Monday"! Well lots of "Mondays" have come and gone and my butt and thighs are still as thick as a Chick-filet shake (you know what I'm talking about!!) That is when I thought OK there are 52 Mondays in year...52 is a doable number of making small changing in my life that will hopefully change to number on the scale in a downward fashion. Come join us on the journey of 52 Mondays to getting our butt, thighs and almost everything else that shake and moves a little smaller. If want to be a contributor (and you know you do) just leave a comment and I will add you to the list of contributors! This is a blog were we can share our successes and failures on the hard journey of weight loss and just plain physical wellness.

Hi, My Name is Suzanne and I Want to be Healthy...

What are my goals for 2010? There are so many I have to narrow them down. In the me/food/body category it all really boils down to being healthy . "Healthy" can mean different things for different people. For me right now, being healthy means I need to make a few changes this year. Ok, maybe more than a few...Do I want to lose weight? YES! Do I want to be more active? YES! Do I want to feel and look better? YES!
This is what I plan on doing:
1.Eat whole foods, cook from scratch, no processed junk and eat less! (the calories still add up even if it is healthy)
2.Do something active everyday. Will I go to the gym everyday? not likely. But going a few times a week and supplementing it with other stuff at home is a goal I can accomplish in my life right now.
3. Sleep more. (ie, stop going to bed late and getting up early)
4. Drink more water(no more soda for me, even diet caffeine free)
I know that if I really make these changes, my body will change too. And I say these things in the name......


  1. ditto suzanne. You read my mind. We have almost the exact same goals so lets support each other. Where were you when I bought the discount chocolates from Christmas today. Totally not worth it. I was shopping with kids and food has become my only stress relief. Let me know if you have any ideas on how I can avoid this trap.

  2. Hey I thought we agreed to not post photos of each other on this blog!!! ;)

  3. Just trying to keep up with you- Kelly. That's what happens when you are under 5ft. tall: be grateful for those 2 inches,Candi!
