Been awhile since I've blogged,so here I am!
I recently decided that despite all my fears and failures, my binge eating disorder, my fibro, and arthritis I still CAN make positive changes that will lead to a healthie lifestyle. I realized I had long ago given up on my weightloss goals or really any goals pertaining to health. Well I took the first step a week ago or so and decided that I am going to try this again and set a clear cut goal of losing 10lbs by August 29th. I think I can do this. I just need to commit and keep at it no matter what hurdles come my way.
A dear friend of mine who believes in me is sending me a fitbit. I can hardly wait to put my grubby little paws on it!
I may not be able to do all that I once could, but I can track my food (the good, the bad and the ugly) and make a goal of steps per day. I can do my PT exercises too at least 5 days a week. For right now that will have to be put on hold for yet another week because of my sinus sugery tha I am recoverying from, but look out once I am able I will do this!
So what are the changes I plan:
~ Lose 10 lbs by August 29th
~ Drink 8 cups of water each day
~ Limit caffeine to once cup of tea a day and then go to water & Herbal tea only
~ Get 8 hours of sleep each night..practice healthy sleep habits...go to bed and get up same time.
~ Use fit bit~ Track Food/ track exercise & steps
~Use my Emotional Eaters team for support as needed and offer support to others
~ Continue to stay smoke free! NOT ONE PUFF EVER!!
~ Spend 15-20 minutes with God in Bible study and prayer
~ Be Gentle and Kind to myself
~ Eat at least 2-3 servings of fruits/veggies a day. This will be easier now that my sister is giving me fresh veggies from her awesome garden. She was for sure the one born with a green thumb!
While there are a lot of goals, I will implememnt them a couple at a time and add as I am ready. That way I will not be so overly stressed with the process!
I love my spark teams and spark friends! I know I can count on you for support and you nkow that I will offer supportive hand too.
Let's do this one positive Baby step @ a time.
