BLC Goals

Sunday, January 06, 2013

I do NOT set time-based weight loss goals. I know that my body will do what my body is going to do and I really can't control that. What I CAN control is what I eat, what goes on in my head, and how much I move, so my goals are based on those things.


I have a goal of a 100 day tracking streak. Yesterday was day 15. There are 84 days in 12 weeks so that means I will track my food every day. Even the 2 days in February I will be in Austin with the girls. That won't be pretty, but I'll track it.

I always eat a ton of fruits and veggies, so I will continue that. I will also continue to follow the Weight Watchers Simply Filling Technique. This focuses on eating healthy, actual food and minimizing processed, man-made stuff.


I will spend time each day engaging with like-minded people to help keep my positivity and motivation up. I will blog once a week. I will comment on the blogs of others. I will offer encouragement when I can. When my motivation wanes, I will remind myself that commitment is more important than motivation. I will take steps to show I am committed: I will go for a walk, blog, plan a meal, or go to a WW meeting.


I will schedule my workouts using the calendar on my ipad. I already scheduled the workouts for the coming week, looking at what we have going on as a family. I usually get up at 4:30 to do some positive brain work and have decided that i will do the cardio exercise during that time on days when I have cardio (Tues) and on days DD swims (Thurs). My strength training will need to be after work since I do ChaLEAN Extreme and don't think I can lift that heavy without eating first. I may try tomorrow. I can do cardio on an empty stomach but lifting as heavy as she wants me to, I think I need fuel.

I always set a monthly exercise minute goal, excluding the inflated Sparkpeople number that comes from my Fitbit. My January goal is 1300 minutes. I will get better about rewarding myself when I meet the monthly goal. I have no clue what my reward is for January. Probably a new piece of clothing, or some new workout shoes.

So, there is my plan!

What's yours?

    ALOHA Azure sister!
Love your blog. Great realistic goals! My body does the same thing. I can't say I'll lose a # of pounds/inches by... because my body will rebel. If it were that easy I'd be at goal by now. So have fun and keep it moving!

    These are really smart goals. I like that you are not choosing a time-based weight loss goal. The tracking goal is HUGE. I love the head goal, too--so important to be with positive people. I've been meaning to schedule my workouts on my calendar so I have no excuses--I need to get a clue from you and do it!
