Week one goals

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

I changed my program to reflect my long-term goals for 2013- I want to lose 50 of my 110 pounds this year.

So, in sparkpeople style, I'm breaking it down: in January, I want to lose 5 pounds.

Here is my week 1 plan:

Track my food, EVERY DAY

Drink 8 glasses of water, EVERY DAY

Exercise at least 10 minutes, EVERY DAY.

I have found that I have to be an all or nothing person. I don't do well if my goal is 5 days a week. I see that as a loophole to not do it one day, and one day turns into 2 days, etc. So I am making it easy to do every day. It's OK if my meal plan isn't perfect, as long as I track it. It's OK if I run out of time for a 45 minute workout, as long as I do at least 10. That way, I won't feel like I've gone completely off-track if I slip up a bit, as long as I keep this base.

    Great approach!! As they say, do the exercise for 10 minutes and you'll find yourself doing it for longer.

    You GOT this!
