My plan?

Monday, April 01, 2013

Well, to say I fizzled out of the BLC is an understatement! I even missed the weigh in last week! UGH. I am not giving up - I have been doing what needs doing to some degree. I just haven't had the TIME. And I'm not using it as an excuse either. I literally am busy from the time I wake up until the time I go to bed these days! Makes it hard to get in any kind of a workout.

So - I am being diligent about certain things...and this is going to constitute my plan during the BLC break.

First - WATER! So important. I feel like garbage when I don't get in enough. I need a MINIMUM of 64 ounces a day. More is better.

Second - Fruits and veggies!! This is so huge! I don't even feel hungry enough to care about snacking when I'm getting my fill of freggies each day. This is something I have to be more consistent about and make a CONSCIOUS effort to eat at least 5 servings a day!

Third - That little old TEN MINUTES of exercise a day! And really mean it! I always say "minimum of 10 minutes a day", but secretly in my mind I know that really means more. NO! I need to trust myself that 10 minutes is okay - great even - and that it helps build consistency to do that little bit every day!

Fourth - Strength training!!! And it doesn't have to be a major thing - just do a quick 10 minutes! I need to do it and also track it so I can see results! (Holding a plank longer...lifting weight easier...etc.) I need to see the payoff of my work!

Fifth - YOGA! I am so good about doing it every night before bed.........until I am not so good at it anymore. It helps my legs feel good. It keeps me flexible. It helps me sleep through the night. And, believe it or not, I am able to relax! It is something that needs to be non-negotiable. It is not a big deal to do.......so I need to DO IT!!!

This is all stuff that I should be doing on a regular basis anyway. But I want to commit to these things during the BLC break, so that I have a jump start to the new BLC, and can push myself harder and actually meet my goals! :-)

I can do this!

  Such a simple and effective plan. But as easy as it seems to you now each day somehow will get harder. But...

    Christa, great plan and it's all for you, your health, your life now and your future. Go for it girl and put your health on top of the "To do" list.

Glad you figured out what can help you sleep better.

I have been doing the Wii Fit Plus boxing - who would think that would really tone your arms - wow!! It really does. I do the 10 minute one - expert I think.

emoticon you are on your way.

    Sounds like a great plan. I know you are busy. I have been too. I am too busy to come on here as much as I am at other times. People have lives to live. It looks like you have to plan to do the things necessary to live your life healthier. That is great.

You can do it. One day at a time. Make each day the best you can. That's all you can control.

    Yes you can do it! Have you been critical about the things that are making you so busy? Are there even a few small opportunities to just say no? Even carving out just a little breathing room can make a big difference.
