BLC 22 - My S.M.A.R.T Goals
Sunday, June 09, 2013
So I was going to do this yesterday but I got sidetracked by life and ranted instead - better late then never! Here are my goals for BLC 22...
I would like to lose 15 - 20 pounds - Now I know that sounds like a lot and I'm not usually one to hang my hat on a specific number however I believe it's doable. But the goal is to get as close to a 20 pound loss as possible.
Be accountable - this means tracking every BLT, staying within my calorie range and being caution of my sodium intake. This does not mean I won't have chocolate or burger for the next 11 weeks...it just means that I am aware and comfortable of the choices I am making.
I also wanted to make a goal to try new things - at least one new recipe a week. This is a little daunting to me but again I feel it's doable and a little push outside my comfort zone wouldn't be a bad thing. See I have never been what I would call a good cook - I mostly just heat things (I'm a excellent heater upper) and I think this has contributed to my weight, well no...I KNOW this has contributed to my weight among other things. I am willing to learn though and I think this goal with push me in the right direction!
This may seems like an easy one but it's a biggie for me. No soda except for my off/treat day(this is Sunday for now).
Walk somewhere (anywhere!) at least three times a week.
Get in some strength training as least three times a week, at the gym or at home. Even if it's only for a few minutes on my lunch - make an effort!
Take some times to relax during the week. Maybe yoga or some simple meditation to reflect and remember what's important.
So that's about it, I still have mini goals for the day/week that I like to met but those are the major goals I would like to stick too. (Most of them are just a repeat from my june goals blog). I'll leave you with this picture (Ignore the mess and the zombie poster lol!) of me in my new apron - a gift to myself to help with goal number three!
