I've taken some time to figure out what my goals are for this summer challenge, and I think I've gotten them all set:
1. Lose at least 10 pounds.
Truthfully, I was hoping to lose more, but lately it has been a REALLY slow process. I can, however, notice my body changing, and I know that the slower it comes off, the easier it will be to keep off.
2. Visit the gym and complete my sister's workout at least 4 days per week.
Since my sister (a college softball player) is home for the summer, she has gotten this wild idea to make me her new project. Basically, I get a personal trainer for free! While some of the stuff she puts me through makes me want to throw her in the lake, I am thankful for the help, because when it comes to weight training, I have no idea what I am doing. I'd like to accomplish this goal, and continue on with it even after she leaves to go back at the end of summer.
3. Make my new eating habits a lifestyle.
I'm tired of referring to this as a "diet." It's not a phase, and it's not a set "plan." Making good choices about my eating is a habit that I want to create and have for the rest of my life.
I have a lot of little mini-goals (drinking more water, tracking my food, etc.), but those are the three biggies for the challenge!
