I am setting goals as I continue with my challenge teams.
My first goal is to lose 30 pounds. No, this will not be done in a matter or 10 or 12 weeks. It is doable but I am planning my goal at 5 pounds at a time. For me, it is easier to set a goal at a small amount rather than overwhelming myself with thinking 30 pounds as the total goal. I don't normally set a reward as I reach a goal. Rewards don't really impress me. I am at the age that my children are raised, I am retired and if I want to get a pedicure, manicure, whatever....I will just do it. Therefore, a reward does not make me work any harder. Yet I think more in terms of getting into a smaller size. This is really what I look forward to - that vision of being toned and looking better in a nice outfit.
I am going to increase my freggies per day/week. I try now to get 6 into my daily diet. I need to increase to 7. I will also increase my water intake daily. Exercise is important to me. I will continue to exercise daily and will add an extra workout to my day...getting strength training into my exercise regime at least 4 times per week. This will be in addition to my daily cardio.
I also plan to take some time to myself daily. Whether I meditate, play a game, read a book... I will enjoy some quiet time doing what I want to do without distraction from my husband.
We all deserve to take some time for ourself.
