Day 1 of 90

Thursday, April 17, 2014

There is a wonderfully wise blogger on this site who just posted about her own 90 day challenge. I was so inspired by her recent blog about not being a quitter anymore, that I've decided to do my own 90 day challenge.

The Challenge
This won't be about being perfect. That is a problem for me. I am always starting over - break a streak, feel defeated, take a day or two off, start again. It is a cycle that is not getting me any results. So the first part of this challenge is no starting over. 90 days good or bad - I'm counting each one as a day toward completion.

The first goal is to journal my food. I over eat - that is why I weigh 214 pounds. Too many calories, everyday. So no matter how much I exercise I never lose weight because I haven't committed to be honest about the calories. I'm sure there will be days I go over my calorie budget, but I won't quit. I'll just have to look at it, learn from it, and do better the next day. There will be days at the calorie goal, and as those stack up I know I will feel better and see results.

Goal 2 - exercise. I've got to find the time to do deliberate exercise. I'm very good at getting steps. I sneak those in constantly. But so far that hasn't been enough. I own about 50 workout videos from The Firm. I will incorporate those back into my life. I love them! They work, and they are fun. I have allowed a lot of excuses to keep me from doing them. The Fear - I am fearful and sad about how out of shape I have become, and I know that it is going to be frustrating to work back up to the level I used to be.

Goal 3 --- just a few little things more that I'll be tracking during my 90 days. I have not been taking any vitamins. My husband bought me a container of GNC megawoman vitamins. I plan on taking 1 of those daily. Freggies (fruits and veggies) I routinely get 3-5 - I will try to get 5 daily. Sugars and processed food - I will not attempt to eliminate during this 90 days but I will be aware, and reduce whenever possible. That might be a challenge for later this year.

So......on Day 1 it rains. I am so lucky to have an indoor exercise option!
