Day 1: Revisiting A Goal


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Monday, June 09, 2014

Today is the first day that I will get back to working out. I took some time off because I let my laziness take control of my life. Yes, even those that want to promote a healthier lifestyle falls off course sometimes. This time I want to achieve a goal that has evaded me so much. I want to finish a full round of TurboFire.

This goal seems to always get away from, at least that is until now. I am taking it one day at a time instead of thinking about it in the full 12 weeks period. I am going to change my eating as well so that I can be successful. What good is exercising if I donít work on cleaning up my eating as well?

Now that itís summer vacation for my daughter, I can now focus on getting in my exercise and eating healthy as well. I am getting a schedule in place as I will have to take into consideration that I will be going back to school in the fall (yeah!). I make one for the rest of this month and then starting in July, I will change things to fit what I will be doing in fall so that I can get use to the schedule a month in advance. I know I am and I know this should help me with the excuses that I know I will make.



Starting back to school has me revisiting a goal that I have been wanting to achieve since the early beginnings of my weight loss. There are some stairs at my university that I have always wanted to walk up. The picture above doesnít do them justice. There are A LOT of stairs and I know that if I were to try them now, I would only make it up to the part where there is a bench. I want to get in better shape and attempted them when I finally graduate. I hope to try them next summer.

Okay, now that I have some attainable goals set for myself, now itís time for me to keep myself on target in reaching them. What good is making goals if I donít work to achieve it? Time to get focused as this for sure will be the LAST time I will start again. No starting over anymore, time to keep on the course no matter what.

  You can do it. I always revisit my goals to make them work for me. I always believe this the best way to achieve successful weight loss without being stressed out.

    You can succeed with your goals. I have to force my exercise as it is not my favorite/ But this time of the year is great for eating. All the wonderful fruits and veggies are in. I have a hard time deciding which I want at each meal. So much easier for me when I can go to the farmer's market and get so much fresh merchandise.
