Simple Plans for February

Friday, February 01, 2013

February Goals
Back to Basics!

I am going to be gone for much of February so I think that it will be especially important to stick to what I know will work. Below are reminders to myself:

1. Log into spark every day (when out of the country on vacation, journal about Spark if unable to log in)
2. Log calories... especially on vacation - stop pretending not knowing exactly what it is or how to log it is an excuse for not logging.
3. Exercise every day - start changing it up a bit...same thing every day doesn't get it done
4. Get some sleep - you know that stress and lack of sleep = lack of progress
5. Set realistic expectations...just because you don't lose 2 lbs a week doesn't mean you aren't making progress. Honestly- forward is forward. Find some grace for yourself
6. Look in the mirror and find something you like. Seriously - the image in your head is not accurate. For those of you who don't know - I really struggle with the girl in the mirror - I am actually pretty good friends with the girl in pictures. But then my little inner fat girl starts thinking things like "I don't really look like that. People will think I photoshopped that...etc). I digress, but honestly I have to learn to like what I see in the mirror - even as not perfect as I am.
7. Reward yourself...often
8. Live in the now. You can't get to the past, and the future will take care of itself.

So there it is. My "simple" plans for the month.
Hope everyone had a great first day of February!

    this is a good plan .... but what I really wanted to say is what a beautiful girl/lady you are !! what this old woman would give to be young and look like you again....... AWWWW... the beauty of youth. Be sure to achieve your weight goals while you are young and don't waste your youth being overweight like I did !!

    Enjoy your month, a short yet busy one for you. Belize is one place I haven't been. Scuba diving on the reef is second only to Australia. Enjoy your time.

Take care and stay healthy

    7 days in Belize followed by 4 days of skiing = perfect vacation!

    I really like this list, and especially when you are traveling, it's too easy to just say "the heck with it." I know you will succeed because you are taking the time now to set yourself up for success. I'm rooting for ya! BTW, I've been out of the loop on Spark for a while, so if you've said where you're going on vacation, I missed it. So, where are you going? I wish you safe journey and traveling mercies. Enjoy! emoticon emoticon
