How can it possibly be the end of 2012 and I have not succeeded yet???

Sunday, November 25, 2012

Well, in answer to that question, I have to admit that this has probably been my worst year for tracking my food. I have had way too many "vacations" from that very task that I know is necessary for me to lose weight. So....

1. My first priority has got to be to track every bite that goes in my mouth. If that little bite is too much hassle to look up the nutrition for it, then it has to stay out of my mouth.

2. My exercise intensity has to be bumped up a notch. For most of 2012, I have exercise 5 days a week or more, but the intensity has not been there. So cardio has to includeexercise that gets my HR going stronger.

3. ST will be done 3 times a week for a minimum of 30 minutes each.

4. I will strive for 100% points in the challenges.

5. If/when a slip-up happens, I will get back on the wagon immediately.

    Great goals! SMART ones too. Now that 2012 is over, let's make 2013 the year we meet our goals and make it known to us as a lucky year! emoticon

    emoticon Keep going and good you are recognizing that now instead of later when it could be much worse with your waistline! I have seen so many stop tracking or exercising and gain half or more of their weight back in no time. It is a lifetime commitment that we have to keep in the forefront of our lives. It is ok to vacation a time or two, but always stay focused. Our health depends on it!

    We can help keep each other honest! Our goals are the same! Keep on me about that ST - it's my biggest weakness! Well, it will be once I get back to tracking religiously!
