Week 6: Planning/goals + SO HORMONAL!
Monday, November 26, 2012
We are now in the final weeks of the year and I am making some goals and plans on how I would like to finish off this year.
I am making several non-weight goals so that I can have something (that I can control) to aim for just in case the scale decides not to participate in my plans :-D So basically, these will be the things that I would be satisfied with EVEN IF I never reached my ultimate weight goal of 120.
My Happy/Acceptable weight goal is 130
My satisfied weight goal is to maintain my weight no higher than 140 pounds. (Depending on how good I look in a bikini at this weight AND I will have little room for gain. So I'll be happy here, but I will have to stay diligent to maintain it)
Also I am preparing to make a shopping list for the week so I can make sure I pack my lunch and eat meals from home. I think this will help control my calories and I want to reach my goals in the next 6 weeks.
ULTIMATE goal = To wear a size 6/8 in pants. 8/10 in skirts.
To be comfortable wearing a bikini on the beach with no cover and not feel self-conscious
Goal Measurements: 34-27-38 [This is subject to change... I have big hips and don't know what a feasible goal would be] These were my old measurements once upon a time. I'm not going to be too strict with this. I want to feel comfortable in my body and feel healthy... I'm not super attached to the measurements
To be able to run 5 miles in less than 50 mins (again- When I ran my last marathon I was able to run pretty fast)
To complete the insanity series
To feel sculpted.. Not rock solid but not too mushy and NO (excess) back fat.
Oh and here is some follow up:
I do infact have a hormonal issue that is making it difficult for me to lose weight! Aha! I told you guys I was actually working out hard LOL I'm following up with my endocrinologist on Thursday soooooo hopefully I can do whatever needs to be done so I can get back to a healthy weight. In the meanwhile, I will be tightening up my diet... My body can't store excess calories if I don't provide them but it will be nice to get back to a hormonal balance so my HARD WORK pays off!
