Changed My Ticker!

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

Well, To celebrate my divorce from the scale and arbitrary numbers, I set my ticker to fitness minutes. I'm starting with 400 a week, and if that gets too easy, I'm increasing to 500 fitness minutes a week.

Really my goal is to burn more calories when I work out, and today, I get to be at the gym for a couple of hours. I like these long sessions because I get a lot done and I can really focus. But enough talk, I have to shower and head out. I know, I know. Why shower before getting yucky? I'm a compassionate person. L.O.L.

    Great idea. I should do it, too, because I prefer to focus on the action plan. I don't have a real goal weight on my ticker but I have a number out there because I do like the visual of how far I've come. And despite that I don't really focus in the scale, I really DO want to get under 160. Not because I think it's my ideal weight, but I'm only 5'2", so extra weight just piles around my middle. Just want to get into a reasonable weight range, not a perfect one. So I'll keep my weight loss ticker a little wile longer. But I'm happy for you for letting it go! Maybe I will get to that point soon.
