Goals and a Reset

Sunday, March 24, 2013

Wow. It's been so long since I wrote a blog I feel like I don't even know where to start! I've been slacking off lately. Granted, I haven't been horrible with my eating, but I've been far from where I should be. I've gained back all the weight I lost....sigh. Part of that was changing medications, but another part of that was getting lazy. Time to fix that.

I feel bad that I haven't done a great job with my first BLC. There are a couple weeks left, and I'm determined to post a loss! It's been a great experience, but I haven't pushed myself hard enough. Between these last couple BLC weeks and the start of the 20-somethings challenge, I'm determined.

I used to set goals for myself, and somewhere along the way I lost that. So it's time to get back to doing that.

emoticon I just tried Combat tonight, and it was fun! I'm going to set a goal to stick to the program for 60 days, starting now. Tomorrow I'll redo my measurements and take updated before pics.

emoticon Drink at least 2 bottles of water (60 oz) every day.

emoticon Eat at least 3 servings of fruits or vegetables every day. I know this isn't the recommended amount, but some days I knock this out of the park, and some days I don't eat any at all. I figure going for 3 is a good start.

emoticon Get at least 15 minutes of "me" time every day. This doesn't mean when I'm driving or playing on the computer. This is time spent reading, relaxing, doing something artsy, journaling, spending time with friends, or playing with my dogs...or anything else that recharges my batteries!

emoticon Be in bed, with the light off, by 12:30 every night. Ideally it would be 10:00, but that's just not realistic right now. Most nights I'm not in bed until 1:00 or later, so 12:30 is a good start.

So that's it. For the next 60 days, those are my goals, the things I'm going to focus on. I can do this!!

    Great goals, Casey! You can do it! I look forward to hearing about the results you are getting from ombat. I just ordered the supreme warrior combat kit, which is the basic kit plus the gloves from Coach Jen. It will be here in about a week, look forward to getting started. In a couple months we will be buff Azuritas, just in time for summer!
