As I mentioned, I purchased a new scale. For those who like to live in the dark, we now have glow in the dark scale that brings you to the light!
I have to say I was quite alright with that number during the day. I mean, no it's not the best combo of numbers but it wasn't upsetting me or getting me down. Then last night I started thinking What a disaster that was! I was 343 when I joined WW in 2007. So my mind starts calculating.... That means I've gained 80 lbs of the 120 I had lost
Oh well....moving onward...Today is Baby Step 3 day. I came across a Spark article and I am going to model this blog somewhat after it.
What is my wellness vision? Where do I envision myself 3-5 years from now? Set 3 month & weekly goals based on my wellness vision. They need to Specific, Measurable, Action-based, Realistic and Time-oriented.
~I worked on my vision collage earlier this winter. But I know that it has made its way to the back of my room instead of the front of my sight. I want to be fit and tone. I want to be able to keep up with Emma outdoors. I want to be able to go hiking, ride a bike, go kayaking and many other things without being breathless. I want to be eating tons of fruits & veggies while setting a good example for my family.
~Three to five years from right now I envision myself working with young children and helping them to see the fun in exercising. I see myself helping postpartum Moms with depression by using exercise. I envision myself being able to fit into ďthatĒ dress, wearing that swimsuit on the beach, doing double takes in the mirrors and firming up what I have.
I want to live longer, climb the stairs without getting winded, walk and then run a 5K, have more energy and feel and be stronger. I really want to be able to go to one of the local amusement parks and feel comfortable getting on a roller coaster. I want to walk into a room and feel like people are staring at me because I look stunning & sexy, not because I am obese. I want to go back to when people ask me ďdid you lose weight?Ē
6 month goal:
3 month goal:
Health/Fitness-Lose 20 lbs
~Finance: Save $$ for my Emergency Fund/reread & relisten to Financial Peace University
~Health/Fitness-Exercise 5 days a week mixing up cardio and strength training,
~Career-Research degree programs that would be covered by work
Lately Iíve had many reminders that tomorrow can be taken away from us in a heart beat. Iíve also learned that I need to be kinder than necessary for everyoneís facing some sort of battle. My personal life feels as though itís in an upheaval but I am determined that I will not allow it to affect me in a negative way any longer. Iíve spent way too much time doing this. I am moving in the direction of my greatest dreams and defeat is NOT an option!
Here is my why. My reason for continuing on this journey. Emma makes it all worthwhile for me. I'm willing to do whatever it takes to make sure that I am here with her for as long as possible. I want to be a good example to my child who is the light of my life!
By the way I did come out of the dark with the scale and into the light...
