12 Week Goals


Sunday, September 16, 2012

Even though this is a "forced" blog for points, I really do need to do this.

I've been in Maintenance mode for over 2 years now. In fact, I got down a little too low and people were worried about me. So, I put my ideal weight at about 138-141 lbs. 133 was just too low.

I had no problem until my part time job with Kohl's came along last October. I'm surprised that I'm only at 145.5 lbs, actually. Now I watch my grandson 2-3 days each week for 9 1/2 hours each day. But forget about the scale, my pants know how bad I've got.

Here's still me (and Hubs) on Rt. 66 a few weeks ago..



Yep. Still my Size 8 pants. But here's the real problem again...
(Can't believe I'm posting this)



The dreaded Muffining!!!

Besides that, I just don't feel so great anymore.

So, here's the 12 week goals:

1. DRINK ALL THAT WATER ONCE AGAIN!
Every day. Just like I did for years. NO Excuses!

2. CUT BACK MY PRECIOUS MT DEW
Back to one 12 oz can a day again. NO more 24 oz bottles from the break room at Kohl's!
(This will probably be my biggest challenge of all!)

3. GET THOSE 10,000 STEPS & 10 STAIRS ON MY FITBIT EACH DAY!
NOT as easy as on my old pedometer since I have problems reading my steps when I have my PJs on. But, GET IT DONE!! No more bad 5,000 steps day. Even on a bad fatigue day! (Stupid MS!)

4. BACK TO MY ROTATION OF UPPER BODY, LOWER BODY, CORE FOR AT LEAST 5 DAYS EACH WEEK
Always worked for me when I watch TV at night or do a DVD.

5. GET IN THAT CARDIO CONSISTENTLY ONCE AGAIN!
I NEVER had a problem with this when I didn't work or watch my grandson. Now I'm so tired when I'm home. And I still can't run with my stupid PF foot.
But, NO MORE EXCUSES! SUCK IT UP! At LEAST do 15 minutes on those fatigue days!

6. STOP EATING ALL OF THAT CRAP!
Yes, baked goods and sweets were always problem. I'm still pretty darn good on everything but this and the Mt. Dew. JUST STOP IT! Kohl's break room is no excuse!!! You did it before, now do it again!!

7. KEEP UP WITH THE BLC CHALLENGES.
Just DO them!!!!!!!

My goal is that 12 weeks from now, that my pants will fit better again and the muffining will go down.

    Now that's a great plan! I remember when there was always a can of Mt. Dew in my hand. Can't remember the last time I had one but it's been years. One of the best habits I ever kicked!

    This is a great blog : ) I like that you had success before and you already know what works for you, it's just doing it. Hahaha i love that you call it your "muffining"! I don't have the guts to show that part of my body to the world.

Good luck with the goals, make sure to check in with us and post about how they're going! 12 weeks is a great time frame... right through the holidays too!

    Your muffin is so much smaller than mine LOL! But I also know that it's important to not let it get out of control and to be consistent so I think you've got a great plan. You look so good in that top pic though! I think you are right to not go too low though and it sounds like you've found what works best for you.
