To the New Year of 2009
Thursday, January 01, 2009
While I do not do the New Year’s Resolutions I am setting some new goals to help me keep the momentum of the last six weeks. I know that 2009 is the year I can and will get rid of the excess weight and take the necessary steps to become a more health and fit person. My goal is not just to lose weight but to change my health status. One of my main goals this year is to do the 110 mile bike ride during the month of August that completes a loop around the Utah Lake. Several of my goals that I am setting will assist me in meeting the goal of the 110 bike ride.
My weight goal is to take my over all weight loses in small steps of 5% at a time. Since last March I have reached my 5% goal of 15 pounds and currently working towards my 10% goal of 30 pounds. Then when I reached my 10% goal I will re-evaluate my next goal. I am looking to meet my 10% goal by the 28 of February.
My Nutrition goals are to make healthier choices.
I will continue to ensure that I get at least three fruits and three vegetables a day, working up to eight a day.
Eat more whole grains by changing from regular pasta and rice to whole wheat pasta and brown rice.
The one part of my diet I currently struggle with is getting the correct amount of lean protein, this is the one area that I will take steps to work on over the next several weeks until I determine the best way for me to meet my daily requirements. >
I will continue to ensure that I drink a minimum of 6 glasses of water.
My physical goals are to become more active on a daily bases
Get up from my desk when at work and complete a fifteen minute walk at least twice during my eight hour shift.
Do 30 minutes on the spinning bike three times a week.
Do 30 minutes on the treadmill two times a week.
Add yoga and stretching to my daily routine to become more flexible.
I look forward to meeting my goals and adding new ones as I continue my journey to a more healthy and fit lifestyle.
