My 12-Week Plan for Success includes the following goals:
SPECIFIC GOAL - Weight from 163 to 145 - down 18 lbs.
MEASURABLE GOAL: 18 lbs. (1/3 of my overall weight loss)
ATTAINABLE GOAL - 1.5 lbs a week
REALISTIC GOAL - Reduce food intake by 300 calories a day (from 1500 to 1200); increase exercise to 40 minutes daily to burn 400 calories = Total: 7 days at 1200 calories intake + 400 calories burned in 6 days exercise....4,500 calories = 1.5 pounds a week gone!
TRACKABLE GOAL - Keeping a careful eye on what I eat with Sparkpeople's Nutrition Tracker and doing a fitness video I found that is exactly 40 minutes long, I believe I can do this!
Some helps might be:
1) getting a friend to oversee my nutrition tracker
2) exercising the first part of the day to get it done right away
3) blogging my progress
