Goal for February 2013

Saturday, January 26, 2013

So...I'm back after a dry spell, but I'm ok about it, I think joining the Spark Group Challenges really helped me, I tried to get into the January Challenge, but I failed, and not afraid to say so. Still, I've gained 2kgs, and I put out a new goal for myself, which I haven't achieved, but that's going to change. I'm so surprised at myself though with this long away from the exercise and whacked out eating, I thought I would gain so much more, thank goodness, I didn't throw away all my well learned lessons from the last couple of months.

So, as the month of January begins to end, I am embarking back on my personal challenge and goal for February which is what I should have achieved in January, however, like they say, there's not time like the present, so off I am with my February personal goal, which is:

Lose 7kgs to reach 135kgs by the 28 February 2013. To tone my arms and legs and stomach. My person goal is to ride my bike down the hill(s) and come back up or ride to the next village to my in-laws place.

I've planned a holiday in May 2013, and I'm looking forward to it a lot. I won't be wearing a two-piece swimming outfit...BUT...I will be confident enough to wear shorts and sleeveless tops.

Planning is the key and ensuring I am prepared for my bike rides in the mornings OR afternoons.

Woo hoo!!!

    Woo Hoo...glad to have you back Julie. Your new bike ride routes do sound fun. How far is it to the other villege? With the Holdiay in May you have something big to look forward to. Much like my daughters wedding which is also in May. The 25th actually.
    I'm pleased with my scale today. What will be your new weigh-in day now that you have your own scale?
    I'm going to look at new ones in Wally World today. See what is out there anyways.
    Our temps have finally climbed above zero. It's 6 degree's right now so that makes us happy. Here in another 6 weeks I'll start warming up my greenhouse and then I'll really be enjoying myself.
    So glad your all fired up. You can do this!

    I know how easy it is to put the weight back on when you go off track. Each trip to America last year put on a pound a day so I had to get it off to continue with my weight loss. It DID come off, and I was given some words of wisdom before the last trip which I will share with you
    You know what it tastes like, you don't need a bucketful.
    Simple but true! So add in a bit of strength training to build up your muscles (because they are better at burning calories) and drink more water and you will be back on that weight loss track.
    Happy 2nd Sparkversary too!
