The reason I joined this challenge in the first place is because I am feeling like I need someone behind me right now, giving me encouraging words. I have been in a terrible plateau that only brings me down the longer it goes on. I just need to suck it up and get back on track!!
My goals for this challenge are fourfold.
1. Stick with my exercise and eating routine- No more exceptions! If I make 5 exceptions per week, I am not really donig what I want, am I? I need to remember to say NO when I am done!
2. Release my sugar cravings!!! I have been eating too many sweets and it is making me tired and cranky. And overweight. Again, saying no.
3. Getting enough sleep! If I want to wake up at sunrise, I need to go to bed giving myself enough time to get at least 9 hours of sleep. More often than not, when I have enough sleep, it is easier for me to hold my ground! This just sets up the rest of my day to run smoothly!!
4. Release my stress triggers. Especially with teaching, I am allowing myself to get stressed more often than I would like and to a degree that is no fun. It, they, he, she can do nothing to me emotionally!!!
I know it is a lot and all that, but it really just goes under one idea of getting back in to a steady pattern of life that makes it easier for me to be the healthiest me I can be! Sure, I would like the be my goal weight before next year, but I think I will have to put that number on the backburner and let itself work itself out, while I focus solely on being happier and healthier. So thats,
4. Steady pattern
Defeat the four S's! Haha
