We booked our vacation: now it's time to get to work!!

Monday, March 15, 2010

Saturday morning my wife and I did something that I've never done before. We booked a seven day cruise to Mexico!! Though I speak fluent Spanish, I have never been to Mexico before. We leave on June 13th from LA. We head down to Mazatlan, Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta and then back to LA.

I have decided NOT to set a weight goal. I think they are toxic for me. I am however setting some action goals to help me get ready for my fabulous vacation:

1. I will eat breakfast every day (even when I don't feel like it)
a. That breakfast will include items that are healthy and delicious including fruits,
protiens, dairy and whole grains

2. I will go to the gym on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays AND Saturdays. The only
exceptions to this rule will be if I am working or needing to take time for school.

3. I will track my food each day on SparkPeople and keep within goals recommended.

4. I will weigh in once a week and take measurements once a month

5. I will remember that I've put this weight on over the course of 31 years, and that it will take
more than a couple of days to lose it.

6. I will enjoy the benefits of excersise and healthy eating and remember that they are not
always associated with a waistline or number or a scale.

I think I can do this. Anyone reading this blog who may have some suggestions on specifics that can be modified to help me achieve these goals, I would love to hear from you.
