Summer 2018 5% Challenge Commitment

So one of the things we have to do is come up with a plan. I've been working on this and I think I need to post it here for reference.

My Goals:

10 reasons I want to be healthy

1. I want to be here for my family.
2. I want off of the Crestor.
3. I want to feel comfortable again.
4. I want to like my image in the mirror again.
5. I want to feel strong again.
6. I want to like my image in pictures again.
7. I'm sick of being in pain and achy all the time.
8. I want to climb stairs without feeling like I need an inhaler.
9. I miss my old self.
10.I want my self esteem back.

My plan
Cardio and Walk Sabrina - 20 - 30 minutes daily
Follow Jessica Smith and Leslie Sansone videos for aerobic and weight activity
Bike Intervals - 2 days/week 30 minutes
Heavy bag Intervals - 1 day/week 30 minutes
Track food - up my protein/lower carbs & fat
Drink my water
Yoga/core mornings
Get 7-8 hours sleep

My Program:

Working out -

20-30 minute walk with Sabrina every day (weather permitting) If weather is not good, I will add a Leslie or Jessica walk (this will be morning or night depending on what time I get up)

M W - bike intervals 30 minutes
1 day a week - heavy bag intervals 30 minutes

I will
- interact with my team.
- focus on high protein low carb meals.
- post points to the Weekly Living the Good Life Challenges
- post exercise minutes
- do Weekly Weigh Ins.

No more excuses! No more whining! No more self-defeating! I am starting over again and I'm going to do it right this time.

180 is just too heavy and too unhealthy for me. I will get to a healthy weight. I am going to do it this time! I was never heavy. I always had to watch my weight but I was always able to get the extra pounds off. When I turned 45, all that changed. Now at 53, it's even worse. My body seems alien to me. Nothing I do works. I am determined to figure this out and I am determined to be healthy.

Personal Information:
From Upstate NY. Lived here all my life. Love to travel but I love to come home.

Other Information:
A fragment of a poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Finish each day
And be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and
Absurdities have crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can."

I tend to dwell on my downfalls, forgetting all my progress. This will help me remember to accept my mistakes and move on.
