BLC22 SMART Goals
My Goals are:
1. I will lose 12 pounds, an average of one pound a week, by August 28, 2013. My final weigh-in will be 199.2 or less.
2. I will be able to run a 5K by August 28th.
3. I will lose 2 inches or more around my waist and 2 inches around my hips. My waist will be 35 inches or less and my hips 43 inches or less.
I will reach these goals through the following plan:
#1 = challenge Habits: Complete all of the TNT and Weekend challenges and aim for 100% points. Post at least once a day in my team thread.
#2 = activity habits: Re-start C25K program and finish it during this round
Strength train 3 times a week. Do 100 push-ups 3 times a week and 250 crunches 3 times a week. Work up to doing 50 squats 3 times a week
Cardio a minimum of 30 minutes for 6 times or more a week. Track my cardio in the Sparkpeople fitness tracker.
#3 = Health and Wellness habits: Take vitamins daily. Drink 100 ounces of water a day. Do yoga daily and knee exercises 3 times a week. Ice my bad knee after running or biking.
#4 = Nutrition habits: Eat 5 to 6 smaller meals a day. No eating 2 hours before bedtime. Don't deny (have a small taste or sample), but also do not overindulge. Plan out my meals a week ahead. Track every bite in the Sparkpeople nutrition tracker.
I will measure my goal by using my scale to measure how many pounds I have lost, by using my measuring tape to see how many inches I have lost, and by maintaining my C25K training schedule so that I can complete my 5K by the end of this round.
To achieve this goal I need Sparkpeople to track my nutrition and fitness habits, I need my bathroom scale to measure my weight, my tape measure to measure my inches lost (NSV), and my C25K schedule and iPod to keep my training on schedule.
I am going to look to my friends, family and my True Blue teammates for support on my journey.
I want to do this because I no longer recognize myself. I am not this overweight person. I want to see myself as a healthy athlete again. I want to be able to be active without knee pain. These goals are the first step in that direction.
