Bring on 2013!! Reflection and goals


Tuesday, January 01, 2013

Well, another year is gone. I didn't make as much progress as I had hoped. I have just been floundering along, not doing much. Since I started really keeping track on Sept 10, I have lost 16#. At least it's a loss.. unless you realize that 8.8# of it was from my weigh-in yesterday after having the stomach flu the majority of the week! The rest has been lost and regained a few times since September. I'd do well for a couple days, and then go off and eat whatever I want and not exercise. I need to break that cycle.

So, I've decided I need to make some changes. I really need to apply myself. I know what I need to do, I just need to actually DO it!
Goals for 2013:
Eating: Track my food 95% of the time and stay in range. I will allow exceptions for certain days.
Water: Right now I'm not drinking much at all. I will work to increase this to a minimum of 8 glasses every day.
Exercise: I'm also very sedentary. I will get some activity every day, working up to at least 40 minutes 5 times a week by the end of the year. (more if I can!) I do have plantar faciitis and arthritis/inflammation in my knee, so that makes it more difficult... but I think that will improve as the weight comes off.

I need to lose this weight. I am sick of not having energy, getting winded, being in pain, not being able to play hard with my daughter, having a harder time doing my job, not having clothes that fit, having fat rolls hanging all over.... I am DONE!!!!! I am carrying around a whole extra person! I WILL lose this weight.... 156# need to leave forever!!!
As far as deadlines... that will depend on if God is willing to bless us with another child. If not, I'd like to be at goal by New Years Day 2015. If so, then obviously it will be delayed a bit... but hopefully only by the 9 months or so!

    Just like Maverick59 said, one day at a time, one glass of water at a time, one less cookie or sugary treat at a time. It all adds up to a healthier you and you can do it. Don't think of this as a diet. Think of this as a journey you are embarking on to be a better you. You can do it! emoticon

    You can get this done if you focus on just one day at a time.
Set daily goals and don't think about anything beyond that.
Meet the goals you set for yourself each day and the rest will just fall in place.

Good luck and Happy, Healthy New Year to you!

    I floundered through most of 2012 myself. Here's to a motivated and energized 2013! emoticon
