So for our weekend challenge we are to come up with our resolutions, goals and/or plan for the upcoming year.
First, I had to reflect on this past year and you know it is so very easy to find all the 'wrong' things I've done so I decided to change that thought process and work on looking at the things I did 'right' instead. MUCH harder to do. It is much easier to beat up on oneself than to be kind - well for me anyway. So after having gone through this thought process while working in my sewing room, I've decided that I will do the following for this New Year, the opportunity for a 'fresh' start.
I want to first break up my goals into smaller chunks. It seems a bit daunting to say 365 days so I'll choose to do it month-to-month and evaluate along the way. I want to be more active and try new things. I want to challenge not only my body but my mind as well.
Early morning workouts is what works for me. If I don't do it early, I struggle to do it at all. So a minimum of 30 minutes of walking and ST daily. ST will be rotation of course so as to give upper/lower a chance to recover. I want to keep working with my spark friends and pushing one another along this journey. I will continue to pursue the 5k's in the area and work to just keep moving!!!
I will track my food daily. Good, bad, or ugly - just DO IT!! This includes 'planning' and logging as it seems to be easier to stay on track if it is already tracked. My calorie range is 1200-1500 daily without taking into consideration exercise which is fine. I like to fluctuate this and do high one day and low the next.
I have accepted that I AM an emotional eater. I would not of thought that about myself but after reflecting, it is so. I need to pay close attention to what is going on around me and take control rather than let IT take control of me. Life seems to be that way at times so I need to be the one in control. When it gets bad, I know I have friends I can call to talk to and will help me through.
10 lbs in 12 weeks is the plan. I will take measurements as well and work in toning and tightening.
I CAN DO IT!!!!
