2010 Goals thus far - Blog for The Meadow team

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

#1 Well - so far my goals for this year aren't going too well. I had hoped to lose 1 lb per week this year, but instead I've gained 6. Well - at least I didn't GAIN a lb per week...LOL

I guess I feel like I'm at my wit's end. I've had medication changes, increased stress, the car accident, and 2 bouts of crud - all since the beginning of the year! UGH. I think I've just put my health on the back burner for now, which I know is counter productive - but I feel like I just can't focus on any more things.

#2 What to do... what to do...

Well, I'm going back to the basics. My first goal is to get in my water and fiber every day. This has always been crutial to weight loss for me. Next, I am going to start a strength training regimine to go along with my physical therapy because I have gotten quite lax in my ST lately. Thirdly, I am going to walk 3x per week - outside if possible. I have the SP calendar that I got right before the new year - I will track it on that and keep it in my kitchen where I can see it all the time.

    Sounds like you are doing good to gain just 6 pounds this year with everything else that's been happening.
Setting goals is a great idea, but don't beat yourself up if you don't meet them! Sounds like a good plan to up the strength training and the walking. Even if you don't lose the weight as fast as you want to, you will be doing something positive. Hope the weather cooperates so you can do your walking outside. Fresh air and sunshine always make me feel better.

    This year has been full of trials for you so far and I am so sorry.

Your plan is good and baby steps is the way to begin. The stress we are under throws our body into save the fat I am going to need it mode. Walking is a great way of relieving some of that stress. I some other stress reliever if you want me to I will send them to you.
