I'm very excited to start this challenge along with all the other fabulous ladies doing it!! I definitely need this oomph since my military fitness test is in 9 weeks!!!! LET'S DO THIS DAMN THING LADIES!!!!
Well, November is here!! New month, new start right?? Well, I wish I could say that I am going do this and that I will succeed. This semester of nursing school has completely exhausted me mentally and physically. Any spare time I have I want to sleep. My mind set is totally not in "healthy life style mode". It's in "pass this semester of nursing school mode". My stress level is is wayyyyy up there. I feel like I'm neglecting my daughter and boyfriend because all of my spare time is spent studying or sleeping. It sucks right now but I know itll all be worth it in the end. Sorry, for being a Debbie Downer.
My plan this month is to take it one day at a time. I will watch what I put in my mouth. I need to stop going through the drive thrus and out to eat so much. I will try to get my heart pumping as much as I can throughout the week. My boyfriend bought the Move for PS3 and he bought Zumba for me so there's no excuse because I have it at my own house. I definitely need to stop being a procrastinator with my school work cause this increases my stress level majorly!! I need to remember why I want to do this. I need to get my mind in the right place...
I have only worked out 5 days out of the last 15. I'm going to put that behind.
There's 16 days left in October. There's 21 days left until I have to take my fitness test. From here on out, I must do something everyday. Whether it be a workout video, intervals, push ups, sit ups, etc... I WILL DO SOMETHING EVERYDAY!!!! It doesn't necessarily have to be a full hard core workout but I need to do something EVERDAY!!!! Tonight is push ups and sit ups!! I WILL DO THIS!!!!
I've been doing A LOT better on my eating. I still have my moments of weakness and I give in to sweets. I know I'm allowed to eat it but I need to remember to not eat it all in one serving. PORTION CONTROL on sweets!!
My military fitness test is in less than 4 weeks and I am nowhere close to being prepared. I need to keep up with my fitness and eating habits so I don't have to stress about this every time it comes around. It would seriously makes things so much more easier so there's no reason why I shouldn't make the change.
I'll be the BIG 2-5 in Feb 2012!! I want to feel great and look great when I hit this age. I don't want my weight to be stressing me out. I have to take care of my body and have it at it's best so I can be prepared for when it's time to have more kiddos ;]
April 28, 2012, I will be graduating from nursing school!! I don't want to be hiding under my gown because I feel fat. I want to be able to look at my pictures and say, "Damn! I look good!!" And I feel that since I'm becoming a nurse to take care of people that I need to take care of myself too.
I already have 3 weddings to attend next summer. Who wouldn't want to look HOTT at a wedding?! I want to actually feel comfortable in a sexy dress! I don't want to wear black since it makes me look slimming. I want to wear a bright, fun color but feel fabulous in it!!
One of the three weddings will be in St. Johns, Virgin Islands. I don't want to feel huge in my bathing suit. Now, I know I won't be in a two piece but I want to feel great in my one piece. I want to be able to wear cute sundresses on the beach and not feel self conscious around others.
Overall, I need to change to a healthy lifestyle to better myself. This will help in so many ways. I WILL DO THIS!!!!
"If you miss a turn, what does your GPS say? Does it tell you to give up on getting there or that you're lazy? Does it beat you up over it? NO. It tells you to turn around as soon as possible. And losing weight and following a weight loss plan are the same-- if you veer off track, don't keep going that way, don't beat yourself up over it, etc. Just get back on track."
It's time to get back on track for GOOD!! I can only blame myself for getting off track and staying off track. I need to stop being so wishy washy with my workouts and eating. I need to stay consistent. Consistency is key and that will show results. I need to be patient. Just because I don't see results after a week doesn't mean I need to give up and beat myself up over it. Weight loss doesn't happen over night. It takes time and I need to friggin realize that. I need to remember why I want to lose this weight and get toned and live a healthy lifestyle. So here's to starting over again. I WILL DO THIS!!
1. STOP MAKING EXCUSES!!
2. Start C25k
3. Rotate 30 Day Shred, Ripped in 30, and 6 week 6 pack throughout the week.
4. WATER!! WATER!! WATER!!
5. Only eat out 1-2x a week
6. Look up a new recipe every week
7. Eat in moderation and track food
8. Lose 1/2 - 1 lb weekly
9. DO NOT BEAT MYSELF UP IF I DONT SEE RESULTS RIGHT AWAY!! JUST KEEP GOING!!
