New Year New Goals Old Cabin

Monday, January 06, 2014

This weekend we were at our mountain cabin for 3 days. We had about 8 inches of snow and it hovered between 0 and 8 degrees F.

We stayed an extra day because the roads and weather were bad and I am glad we did. It was a great way to start the BTS (Beyond The Scale) challenge.

I have been thinking of goals for this challenge and have come up with
1) Follow the No S plan (no seconds, no snacks, no sweets)
2) Keep under 1600 calories a day
3) Track food and activity daily
4) Drink 8 glasses plain water a day
5) Meet FitBit Goals daily (10000 steps, 10 flights, 5 miles)
6) Complete the 21 day Fat Loser program - mental toughness
7) Participate in Beyond the Scale (BTS) challenges with Yellow Roses

I would like to lose a pound a week but as long as I lose or maintain, I will be satisfied because I know I can do that!

    You had a heat wave compared to what we are having. Aren't you supposed to be colder? And what only 8 inches? Gee that is too bad that you had to stay an extra day. I hate when that happens. LOL I need to get serious thinking about goals soon. I have slacked off far too long and gained. I hate having to redo what I have already done. I may check out that challenge. Get it back off before it gets out of hand. I can speak from experience.

    How awesome that you were able to make it back to the cabin! It was surprising they were able to get a road back in there as quickly as they did - from your pictures, it didn't look like there was a lot to work with!

    What a beautiful mountain "get away"!
SMART goals, not all would work for me; but they are not for me! They definitely will move you in a positive direction. Yes, emoticon

  They say that eating 3 balanced small meals a day and snacks in between is better then not snacking at all and eating 3 large meals. Just a little tid bid :-)
