60 Days to Go [or time to buckle down]

Monday, March 04, 2013

Today marks the "2 months to go" mark for our Disney vacation. To date, I have not lost any weight since I re-started on January 1. Clearly my half-hearted attempts are not working. So, I am going to do what I do best, and lay out a detailed plan lol.

60 days (8 weeks) to go.

My weekly goal is to lose 2 lbs (per week). If I keep on pace, I will lose 16 lbs before we go-- which would make me a very happy girl.

I am still a newbie runner and I was doing really well squeezing some treadmill time in every other evening. However, the last two weeks have been crazy and I have not made it a priority. SO. My running goal is to run every other evening a minimum of 30 minutes. I know some nights I will cover more "mileage" than others, and that's cool with me.

I also need to incorporate some strength training/toning into the mix. I don't want to lose weight and still look flabby (which is what happened to me last time). I am limited on what I can do, as far as "weight lifting" because of the lack of equipment. So, I will use my cute purple 3 lb dumbbells every evening and do some arm toning. Planks, pushups, squats, etc. These don't require they will be my go-to exercises.

Insomnia issues. I have some OTC sleep aids that have worked for me in the past. If I take them a few nights, that usually helps my body readjust back to a "normal" sleep schedule. So, I will start taking those tonight through Thursday/Friday and then HOPEFULLY, I am back to sleeping at night.

And last but not least....the food intake issue. NO MORE LATE NIGHT SNACKING. That's one of my biggest issues with insomnia. I get bored. I snack. Something sounds good. I snack. I can always justify why a snack is a good idea lol. No more! Also, PORTION CONTROL. This is my other MAJOR downfall. If it's good, I just keep eating. And then I am sick and don't feel good. And then I am mad at myself for doing it. But, I just keep the cycle going because I never fix it. Smaller portions of healthier choices is my plan.

Hopefully this plan helps me stay on track as this trip grows nearer. I want to know I gave it all I could to look better/feel better. Otherwise, I have no one to blame but myself!

    You can do it! It is great to have a goal that is just around the corner like that, really helps you stay focused! I find tracking really helps as well. It makes me think twice about late night snacking when I force myself to also have to report it to myself!
