A Woman with a Plan

Sunday, March 17, 2013

Well, two weeks into March now, and I guess I have some good and some bad on the weight loss front.

March 2: 191.2
March 9: 187.2
March 16: 188.1

Still down from the starting point, but not exactly where I want to be.

One of my biggest problems is consistency. It's hard for me to get all of the bits and pieces together every day. I drink my water or I exercise. I lift or I stay within my calorie ranges. I stretch or I get enough sleep. It can be frustrating.

I thought it would help if I set some specific goals for this week.

emoticon Exercise 45 min. each day this week. Ideally, I'd like a sustained workout, but I'll settle for two or three smaller ones if it helps me hit my goal.

emoticon 80 oz. of water each day.

emoticon Weights three times this week.

emoticon Aim for 7 hours of sleep each night.

And for a bonus...

emoticon No snooze button! I've gotten into a bad habit of hitting snooze over and over and over again in the morning. It means I don't always pack a good lunch or breakfast, and never get in a morning workout. The time change is still really bothering me, and I think this will help.

    Despite your frustration, you are moving in the right direction. Your goals are realistic. Just keep on doing what you are doing and take it one day at a time.

    I'm still adjusting to the time change, too. But not in a good way. Waking up way too early for my own good. Good plan for putting all your pieces together. You are making progress, lady!

    slow and steady weight loss leads to keeping it off in the long run.

    I would recommend the FlyLady method of picking one habit and working on it all month until it's completely routine. She laughingly says that most people learn a new habit in 21 days, but "Sidetracked Home Executives" ("SHE's") need 28!
