Time to adjust goals

Saturday, June 08, 2013

Things have gotten obnoxiously busy at work for me and for the husband. The lad finished school for the year on Friday, but won't start summer camp until July. We've had what seems like non-stop rain. It's been nearly impossible to get to the gym. I'm not finding it possible to work in workouts the way I had been. I've been having trouble getting in those 8 glasses of water/day because what had been my normal routine has become so completely disrupted.

So since this is really a lifestyle change, I'm adjusting goals so that I don't become completely frustrated and throw in the towel. So what if it takes me a little longer to get to my weight loss goal? The truly important thing is that fitness continues to be a part of the routine and that I continue to strive to build on the healthy habits I've already established.

So here's some recent accomplishments:
Down 1 size in pants (now a size 12 in a number of brands)
Able to wear clothes I haven't worn in years.
I'm able to run longer without stopping to walk

    What you say here really makes sense to me. In my head, a "diet" is something you manage your life around until it's over --- a new "lifestyle" adapts to suit the current needs. There really is no "end point" to a lifestyle, so it's no big deal what time-frame there is as long as your life is going in the direction that makes you happy.

    Kudos on setting yourself so solidly in a healthier lifestyle that you don't need to worry about making a few adaptations to meet current needs. It says so much about how you are doing that this is just something that needs to happen without you stressing over it.

    I'm so excited for you on your accomplishments (down another size?!? wow!). Hope you still manage to have some fun while being so busy with work!
