Goals for BLC22

Monday, June 10, 2013

Here I am at the beginning of BLC22 and I am heavier than I have been in 3 years. I lost 3 loved ones earlier this year all in a matter of 3 weeks! I fell into a depression. Emotional eating went into overdrive. I gained 15 pounds. I was going thru too much hurt to even care. I felt like I lost my whole world and I basically gave up on me.

Now I see the damage I have done and I am in the right mind-set to battle it! So I have a handful of goals to keep me focused over the next 12 weeks.

emoticonEat healthy and track my food daily.

emoticonIncrease my fitness to a minimum of 5 days per week and 420 mins.

emoticonAdd Strength Training back into my workouts 2-3 days per week.

emoticonDrink 8+ glasses of water.

emoticonPost everyday in my Ninja team thread

....And last but not least, I fired Ben & Jerry!! emoticon

I, Paulette, pledge to do everything in my power to become healthier this week. I will watch the quality and quantity of my food, EVERYDAY! I will move more than last week. I will not make excuses. It will not be easy. I will be tempted. BUT I will stay strong and continue to be focused because I deserve to be skinny and I am worth the work!!

    Loving loved ones is always hard but with your awesome attitude, those pounds will be flying off you! We Ninjas will stick together. When we get down in the dumps, we pick each other up and give each other a kick in the pants! We'll get there together.
