My Goals and Progress
My long term goal is to have a healthy body. I will accomplish this by eating appropriately and exercising regularly.
On October 20th I joined the 90 Day Commit to Get Fit at the local gym. It was great. I lost 17 pounds, 10 1/2", and BP dropped into the average range, and bloodwork results showed significant improvement. Woohoo! I've signed up for 24 Personal Trainer sessions, because I know I need the accountability, until this new lifestyle becomes a true habit.
Weekly Goals for March 12-18:
1. Follow exercise plan with strength and cardio activities
2. Plan, prepare and follow through for low-glycemic meals
3. Log intake daily
4. Work on mindfulness
Long Term Goal: Weight of 140 lbs. and a fit body
Short Term Goals: Lose 1-1.5 lbs. per week thru healthy eating and exercise.
A favorite motivational piece:
Jump right in
Stop waiting, dreaming and hoping for someday. Start living and working today to achieve the best of your dreams and to fulfill the highest of your hopes.
Whatever you put off until someday, never happens. Someday is forever out there, just around the corner, but never here and now.
All that you have, and all the great and creative things you're able to do, are here and now. So jump right in and enjoy making life happen, here and now.
Waiting for someday is a lame excuse and a convenient way to hide from your own best possibilities. Choose today to stop hiding and to start really living.
No matter how ambitious your goal may be, there is something you can do about it right now. There is no need, and there is no point, in putting your fulfillment off until some non-existent someday.
Today is what you have, and it's filled with energy, with possibility, with life and awareness and with your powerful presence. Embrace this day with all its richness, and use its moments to live true to your highest vision.
Ralph Marston - The Daily Motivator
Short term goals include:
1. Tracking my food/drink intake daily.
2. Staying within my calorie and nutrients ranges.
3. Cardio exercise 4x/week for at least 30 minutes per session.
4. Strength training 2x/week.
5. 10,000 steps on the Fitbit daily through exercise and activity.
6. Meditate 3x per week.
Track food and drink intake daily. Achieve nutritional goals daily.
I am being certain to have 2 fruits/day, and at least 5 vegetable servings daily.
Exercising regularly will make a huge, positive difference for my physical and emotional health.
Any way you slice it, today's world is going to ask for everything you can give.
Make your first priority your own well-being if only to serve the greater good.

SparkPeople's Coach Nicole says: To kids it's called "playing." To adults it's called "working" out. Bring your inner child out to play for your next workout.
