15 Weeks To My Goal Weight!

Sunday, September 16, 2012

I see here on SP, that alot of people are writing blogs about their 12-week plan. Well, I sat down and thought about it and looked at the calendar, and thought that I have 15 weeks approximately until the end of the year, the end of 2012! That's 15 weeks to get my rear in gear! If I truly want to reach my goal by then, I have to change my thinking to get alot more serious, especially in the eating dept.! Here's my plan...........

1. Track everything - Every little thing and keep within nutritional tracker ranges every day.

2. Daily Cardio - Missing one day could turn into two. That could become dangerous. Right now I'm doing anywhere from 35-60 min. on my recumbent bike each day. Increase and don't decrease.

3. Strength Training - Make strength training a must every day with 2 sets and so many reps. each with increasing amounts and not decreasing.

4. Move around more - Don't sit around so much. You know you feel so much better when you're more active

5. Sleep - Make sure that I get 8 hr.s of sleep every night.

6. Cut out sugar - Only eat fruit and low sugar products as your sweets. Cut out cookies and candy. It hinders your purpose.

7. Keep reading - Keep reading SP blogs and articles and keep up on the latest healthy ideas and recipes.

8. Water - Keep up on drinking at least 8 glasses of water per day.

This is it! I'm going to post this on the fridge and make it my pact for each and every day. It seems that I keep sliding along and I'm not really making alot of head-way. Do I really want to do this and make my goal by the end of the year? Oh yes, I do! So I better prove what I mean right? I'll show you that I can!

    Reasonable, well thought out plan! For me, tracking is the key and always will be. Nothing beats accuracy in your calorie count. Tells you in black and white how well you are doing. Cuts out any excuses.
You can do this! You go girl!!

    Well, you are definintely determined! You are literally shrinking before our eyes and the updated picture proves it. I know it's been up a while, but take a good look back and see how far you have come.

I'm still in the cheerleader wagon and will watch you meet your goal as I am still kicking but to meet mine. And I had better get rid of the ice cream if I want to make it! It ruins my calorie goal every day... and I am not strong enough to give in yet!
