Better, not great, but better

Sunday, November 25, 2012


Today was the first day in a week that I logged 100% of my food. And it's the first day in a week that I didn't end up eating more than 2500 calories. Barely over 2000.

That IS better. I'm trying to be kinder to myself and work on positive thinking and lifting myself up as if I were my own best friend. I would NEVER say 'oh you'll never get this, you're such a fat failure, why are you even trying?' to my best why do I say these things to myself??
Today WAS a better day. Room for improvement? You betcha.

Tomorrow my goal is to eat less than 1900 calories. I'd like to eat under 1900 calories for the next 3 weeks and then I'll lower it again.

Goals this week:
1) Eat 1500-1900 calories
2) Drink 3 bottles (70oz) water daily
3) Workout 4 days
4) Lights out at 10 pm on all weeknights

These are my 4 core areas - My sleep and water intake are absolutely critical to keeping within my calorie range and getting my workouts done so they are absolutely my priority. Non negotiable. If I allow myself the time to build a foundation of healthy habits in these 4 core areas, I should be able to build on them and improve them as time goes on. In doing this I will learn to eat 1500 calories per day in the next 4 months. I will be working out 6 hours a week in the next 4 months. I will be regularly getting 8 hours of sleep per night and getting up at 5:30 am in the next 4 months..I just need to be MY OWN best friend - MY OWN coach. I can help others and coach others as much as I want (and I do, as a beachbody coach) but I also have to remember to help MYSELF...and I spend so much time on my challenge groups and responding to everyone else's needs that I don't do that.

Sometimes I'm up messaging with someone who's having a rough day with THEIR goals until 11 or midnight, and when work STARTS at 6:30 am, that's a late night..I need to remember to focus on MY goals, not just everyone else's...

I CAN do this!
I WILL do this!
I AM doing this!
