During this challenge, I have a general goal of _Fitting into my clothes without having that ugly belly bulge.
My biggest challenge will undoubtedly be _Feeling depressed about my weight and avoiding sweets.
My nutrition goals for the next 10 weeks will be focused on _Rmembering to eat better, more fruit, drinking more water, less sweets, less take-out.
My cardio goals for the next 10 weeks will be focused on _Actually start doing some cardio.
My strength training goals for the next 10 weeks will be focused on _Actually starting weight training!
My rest and flexibility goals for the next 10 weeks will be focused on _Take in a couple of yoga sessions a week and streching properly before and after workouts.
PART ONE - DIET & EXERCISE
Between now and 9/19, I am going to _exercise everyday and do Cardio 5 days a week.
Between now and 9/19, I am not going to _overeat, or indulge in too many sweets. Also I won't use excuses to make me feel better about my stupid decisions.
These 3 excuses will be unusable for the duration of this template:
I'll just take today to overindulge and start fresh tomorrow
***BONUS CHALLENGE- ADD UP HOW MANY CALORIES YOU *DRINK* THIS WEEK! (NON ALCOHOLIC AND ALCOHOLIC ALIKE!)
You can motivate me by _Telling my how great you are doing and how I can do so much better, if I suck at this competition. Also compliment me when I am doing well.
PART TWO - THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
This week, take the time to do one of the following just for yourself.
A. complete a fun project
B. start a fun project
C. brainstorm ideas for something you can do just for yourself over the winter, something that will take a semi-long time to complete. - Like make your own new bag, or put together a family photo album, or redecorate a room, or start a journal, or make a quilt, etc
D. Make a list of things you loved as a child but have not done or participated in for a very long time. See which ones you can incorporate into your grownup life.
Practice setting time aside for yourself, either every day or once a week, and allow yourself to be selfish for a little while, and recharge, so you can better handle the rest of your life and be better for your family or job and friends.
