Balance. Consistency. NOT perfection.

I'm stringing together more and better health habits, from confronting my sugar addiction to focusing on "real food" to reshaping my body (and spirit) with physical activity. What works for me?

Regular exercise works as my building block. When I exercise, I'm more likely to stick with ALL my goals. Tracking my food is the ONLY way I've successfully lost weight. My biggest challenge is an "all or nothing" attitude. I need to strive for consistency and sustainability... NOT ...
I'm stringing together more and better health habits, from confronting my sugar addiction to focusing on "real food" to reshaping my body (and spirit) with physical activity. What works for me?

Regular exercise works as my building block. When I exercise, I'm more likely to stick with ALL my goals. Tracking my food is the ONLY way I've successfully lost weight. My biggest challenge is an "all or nothing" attitude. I need to strive for consistency and sustainability... NOT perfection.

REALISTIC goal setting (storing long term goals here). 1 lb per week loss is realistic and achievable. Some weeks will be better. Some worse. I always seem to go 2 steps back; 1 step forward.

I also like setting smaller (less than 10 lb) incremental goals. I'm an achiever. Regularly feeling like I've reached a goal keeps me motivated. Staring at a months-long endpoint defeats me. So... my plan is:

Goal #1: 12 lbs lost (211 to 199) deadline: July 20th
ACHIEVED! 299 ON JULY 6TH!!!!!!!!
Goal #2: 9 lbs lost (199 to 190) deadline: Sept 21st
Goal #3: 8 lbs lost (190 to 182) deadline: November 16th
Goal #4: 7 lbs lost (182 to 175) deadline: January 4th
Goal #5: 6 lbs lost (175 to 169) deadline: February 15, 2016
