A SparkFriend recently changed her goal weight and logged all of her reasons why she changed her goal. I am so happy for her and also just a tad bit jealous. She got me to thinking why I started this lifestyle change (hate the word diet with a passion) journey. Just why do I want to lose weight??
Besides the obvious reasons of weight loss, better health and clothing (ooo the clothing) there are also other reasons. I hate not being able to try a new exercise or sport and worry about whether I will be able to breath. Do I need to bring my inhaler or will I be OK? Self-confidence is another reason. Why is it, that no matter how hard we try, we let others judge us by size. When I tell people how much I have lost and they asked how much I weighed (some people are just to nosy) they are amazed at what I used to weigh. I then they have the balls to say something stupid like "I'm sorry. I didn't know."
Now, what has been holding me back. A number of things and most are nothing but excuse now that I think about it. Granted, I had bronchitis in December. That does not explain January, February and part of March. So what do I need to do to get back on track.
I need a plan and a schedule. Right now I have so many things going on, I don't know which way is up. I need to sit down and schedule my day and then go from there.
Here are my goals for the next 2 days.
1. Sit down and schedule my week (1 week at a time).
2. Be sure to include 90-120 minutes of exercise a day - no matter what. Family will just have to understand that my health has to come first.
3. Make sure that I schedule Spark Time in as well.
4. Blog my plan and schedule within 2 days.
