I've already set my goals down ...
1- I WILL get to exercise class 5 days a week. (Kickboxing 3 days a week and signing up for something new this weekend to start Monday :)
Good news!! I am on track here. Today is the first day of the new ST class.
2- I WILL participate in each and every challenge this Round.
Good news!! On track here, too. I've joined in the TNT, daily challenges and (as you can see by the blog here) the Weekend challenge so far.
3- I WILL be streaking for the 12 weeks.
Still on track here. Really glad I added this as a goal. Twice this week I would have blown off exercising if I wasn't streaking, but I made it a point to get at least 20 minutes in each and every day.
4- I WILL track my food every day.
I love getting back to basics here. I had fallen away and, interestingly enough, it was right around the time I started putting weight back on. ABS are made in the kitchen NOT the gym !!
5- I WILL blog twice a week.
I'll have to keep an eye on this. This is tough for me. I am not typically an active blogger.
6- I WILL get in at least 15K steps each day.
Not so good so far. I was over 15K 2 of 5 days only. I was over 10K 4 of 5 days.
So, what things do I need to add?
Tracking my CICO differential. This will give me a reason to blog. And also keeps me focused on bruning the right number of calories, not just getting in exercise minutes.
New recipes. Loving the Kale chips I tried this week. Going to try black bean burgers this week, too.
What do I need to continue?
Fresh veggies cut up in bite-size portions for ready snacking.
Starting my day with 16oz of water as soon as I get up. This has really helped keeping up with my water intake.
What should I stop doing?
Eating out. As I look back to when I was at my lowest weight here ... It was before I was eating out frequently. From now on, it is only Breakfast after church on Sundays.
Weighing myself more than once a week.
