MY 12-WEEK PLAN
I believe in creating simple plans that will hold me accountable, yet not overly complex or extremely detailed, so that it would be less likely for me to falter.
I will meditate daily for at least 10-20 minutes.
I will be conscious of what foods I eat and when I crave non-healthy foods.
I will continually visualize the new, fit healthy "me" to keep me motivated.
I will drink at least 6 cups of water daily.
I will eat 5-8 servings of fruits and vegetables daily
When I crave dessert at home, I will either have hot chocolate, chocolate protein shake or 1 square piece of dark chocolate.
I will exercise at least 5 times a week for at least 30 minutes.
I will track my exercises and completion time in SparkPeople tracker and on the Pink Vikings spreadsheet.

I know who I am and what I want out of life. Even so, it does not hurt to have a physical reminder of it in order to keep my vision at the forefront constantly. So, I created a vision collage.
I am tenacious and resilient and I want that to always shine through daily. I strongly believe in being balanced, which makes this walk of life much easier to live. It is a blessing to have inner peace thanks to God!
I chose the word ‘millionaire’ to represent wealth. Most millionaires remain wealthy by making smart decisions as it pertains to their finances. That is my focus – smart financial decisions.
I believe in speaking things into existence, therefore, “I am going to have a clothing line one day soon!”
Last, but not least, we are all precious gems. I chose a diamond as a visual representation. If we all understood how precious and valuable we are, we would put energy into being FIT (spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically).
This is my vision.

Spring is in the air and I am feeling it. I was on what you may call a little hiatus and I started to notice my habits changing for the worse. During that time, I found a couple of truths about myself.
For one, even when I am consistently exercising and eating right, it is really easy for me to get off track (and remain there for a while...lol). What in the world?!!!!!! I started feeling good with my little bit of weight/inches lost and began rewarding myself a bit too much. I was getting beside myself!
Secondly, I realized that I am the type of person who needs challenges to push myself above and beyond my normal routine. I have no problem motivating myself or beginning a routine. However, challenges help me push myself a little further.
So, here I am picking up where I left off while continuing to learn new things along the way.

Oh those bones, oh those bones…
With the leg bone connected to the knee bone,
And the knee bone connected to the thigh bone…..
Okay, okay, you get the picture. My knees do not love me right now. I have done no running within the last month. Instead I have focused on weight bearing exercise and walking at a 5% incline on my treadmill, yet my knees are still protesting. My shoes are only 1 ½ months old. I stretch gently after every one of my workouts. I am so glad I am losing weight because I know my extra poundage is a huge factor.
So, to gain the love from my knees again, I will focus on exercise that have less of an impact on my complaining knees. So, I will limit my treadmill exercise to twice a week (down from five/six) and focus more on Pilates, yoga, dancing and strength training. Oh knees, please love me again!
