My mother-in-law is taking the whole family on a Hawaiian cruise in July. I am very excited about it, but also in need of stepping up my training and eating. I'm actually not fussed about what I will look like in a swim suit; this is much more about comfort on a very long flight and being able to enjoy the activities once we arrive.
So for the first time in a long time, I will be taking a more aggressive, diet-minded approach to my eating. This makes me very nervous. I tend toward obsessive behavior, and if I obsess too much about food, I end up going off the deep end.
But, I also trying to be realistic. I am aiming for no more than 2 pounds a week. If I stay on that track, I can lose 30 pounds by the time we get on that plane.
So my goals for April are:
1. Bike every day
2. Strength train at least 2x a week, swim at least 1x a week
3. Lose 8 pounds
4. Track my food intake religiously
5. Be more positive
I can do this. I am completely capable of accomplishing these goals!
