Plan for June

Wednesday, June 01, 2011

I am making June my month to rebuild. I am really trying to get back on track by building consistent habits that will be long term, instead of just focusing on the short term. I usually work better if I have a plan or list of goals for the month. (Monthly pictures to come later)

1. Water - water is the key to life. My goal is to get in at least 8 glasses of water a day. Should be easily attainable as usually that is what I drink anyway I just need to be more consistent and aware.

2. Nutrition - cut down/out "white" carbs and processed foods. Look for whole grains and load up on freggies!!!

3. Cardio - I am starting over the C25K program. My goal is to get in 3 days a week according to the program.

4. Strength training - I have started going back to Curves, while I understand that this may not be enough strength training to really build strong muscles but its a start. My goal is to do the cuircut 3 days a week.

5. Weight loss - My goal is to lose 10lbs in June. This should be attainale as it works out to about 2lbs a week.

6. Self esteem - this is an area that I really need to work on because I have really been harsh on myself lately. Beating myself up about everything that I do wrong. My goal for June is to find 1 positive thing about myself or something I have done every day.

7. Money - I am going to put a jar on my fridge and for every 60 minutes of working out (cardio or ST) I am going to put $1 in the jar. I can use this money to spend on what ever I want such as new running shoes that I normally wouldn't buy because they are too expensive or a new shirt that I have had my eye on. Somthing I wouldn't normally buy because I don't need it or thought I could afford it. Now I can work to "earn" the money and I won't feel guilty about spending it.

Well I think that sounds like a good plan to get started. Next month I will add on once I have got a routine down!!

    Great Plan Amber-
You can do this and dont be hard on yourself. You are worth the effort!

I love your jar idea-I'm going to do that too. We'll need a new wardrobe after we lose the weight.

    Great plan! You can do this Amber, I have faith in you. I started my ST in a curves type environment, I came to love it and went to a Personal Trainer, now I am training myself. I find starting small and building is the way to go. I see you recognize that too as you are 'building' good habits this month!

    This is a fantastic plan! You're on the right track to focus on consistency & building habits. 100 tiny steps will get you farther than 3 or three giant leaps!

For your #2 goal - Try switching out sweet potatos for white & also give spaghetti squash a try.

#6 is my favourite goal. Imagine that voice as a person outside of your head... and saying those things to one of your sisters. How would you respond to defend her? Those are the words you need to use to defend yourself. Say no to the mean, ugly voice 'cause she is NOT helping you move forward. My inner cheerleader emoticon is available to come over any time you need her.

    What a great idea about the jar and the $$$- love it and may steal it!(the idea- NOT your jar!!)

I love all of your goals- especially being more positive with yourself. If we could only change the way we speak to ourselves- can you imagine what we could accomplish??!! The being hard on yourself is a struggle I share with you!

I hope you have a wonderful June! Think how fun it is going to be to come back to this blog at the end of the month and post pictures and progress!!! You will do it!!!

    I love your plan and I know you will be successful!! I think that having a strong plan that is not too aggressive to start will help build the habits and you can get more aggressive as time goes on if you want!

Love it!
