Day 43 of Easter challenge - Want versus Need?
Wednesday, March 27, 2013
And start of week 2 day of of 28 day bootcamp
"Bootcamp: 10-Minute Cardio Kick Workout"
Tonight is lap swimming planned and I hope to get in 45 min.
I keep think of a clip I saw on Financial guru Suzy Orman - and she kept repeating Want verus Need when it came to buying something. Always ask the question is this something I want or I need. If I need it figure out how to buy it. If I want it then check have I met my savings criteria - if not put it off until I have that banked.
How is that different then weight loss. Do I want or need to eat these calories?
If I need it - basic requirements for a healthy diet then its a no brainer. If I want it, will eating that put me outside my nutritional goals for the day? If so how about a bite? If so, then put it off until I plan my calories better.
The SP coach recommendation was if you have a sedentary job - try adding an extra squat every time you have to stand / sit. And give yourself a reminder to get up every hour. I don't do that - I can easily get lost in work so I'm going to try to incorporate both of those into my program.
March has not been an overall good weight loss 3 pounds
Feb 4 pounds
Jan 8 pounds
Total lost 15 pounds - which I am happy with but makes me want to kick start April a bit more.
Measurements 4.25 inches down (Bust, waist and hips are the biggies but even some on my thighs and knees)
