Getting ready for 2013 My journey continues with new goals

Saturday, December 22, 2012

1ST Focus on myself... As selfish as it sounds I have a lot of self improvement to accomplish.
I need to love myself, and heal my inner child
I will learn to meditate to relieve stress
Work on what I say & think. You attract what you think, so goodbye negative thoughts
I will keep a gratitude journal, be grateful for what I have including my spark friends
I will use affirmations & vision boards, to remind myself of where & what I need to accomplish

Getting Healthy by making some changes
Successful weight loss means learning to control what you eat. Feed your body junk, that it
what it will give back to you.

Tracking my food is a must..It must be done daily & be accurate
Watch portions / Measure everything
Stay in my calorie range
Reduce but not eliminate red meat..Try pork, poultry, and yes even fish
Try meatless meals, use dried beans, pasta, or seasoned veggies


3rd Exercise every day .. No excuses
Exercise will help shed my weight
Start with 10 minutes every day, than in two weeks try doing it longer

Exercise options are health club, where I can use the pool, weight machines,
treadmill, bikes, take a studio class, or get help from a trainer

At home workout. Lots of video's..Jillian, Biggest Loser, Richard Simmons. There
are also tapes on kettlebell, yoga, Tai Chi , Qi Gong, Nia, walking and more. There is NO
reason this can't happen.
I will Track my exercise
I will commit to doing whatever it takes to get healthy.

Goal weight lose 75 lbs..That means I need to lose 6.25 lbs a month, or 2 lbs every week.

I need to get my health under control. By taking these steps I hope to make this happen.
I'm a fighter who plans to win, so bye bye diabetes, RA, Sleep Apnea, and the rest of your gang. I'm taking control of my life starting today.

    Focusing on yourself is so important!!!! Sometimes you have to be selfish!! I know I got to 320+lbs because I wasn't selfish. I always put EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING ahead of me. You need to be the best you so that you can share that with others! :)

    GOOD LUCK! & keep us posted!

    Those are wonderful goals, and I have many of them too. I've found that too much too soon can backfire though, so it pays to pick and choose at first. Even one or two changes - consistently - are a great start!
