It has been over 6 months since my last post...

That sounds like something of a confession - well - it is. I haven't been tracking, I haven't made great choices and because of that I am up about 4 pounds. Not liking that at all. I have a potential trip to Florida in April and a summer by the poolside - I really don't want to put on the same swim suit I am wearing now!
Starting and stopping, over and over and over again. I follow the plan for a while but then life gets in the way and something has to give so I stop tracking. I do ok for a while but then I stop making good choices. One good thing through all of this, I haven't totally given up the fitness part of it. It slowed down over the holidays but it didn't stop completely. I have to figure out why I stop trying when I have success. Why don't I want it more when I do get success? Am I that lazy?
I think I have set grand goals for myself but not little ones to meet along the way. I certainly haven't rewarded myself for doing what I have done well. I need to change that.
Here are my goals for the upcoming week. (My weigh-in is always on Friday and that starts a new week)
1. Track food every day.
2. Drink more water.
3. Work out 5 times - 2 weight training, 2 pure cardio and 1 circuit training.
4. Try for a 1-2 lb. weight loss.
5. Reward myself even if I only achieve 80% of my goal. I think it will be 2 hours of window shopping... Some "Me" time. :)
6. Report back in another blog on my progress.
Have a good week!
