Working Through This Funk/Goal Setting

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

I have been in a serious funk since my last blog. I think I had suppressed my feelings and blogging let them out. Well, when they got out, they temporarily took over. I did not eat well nor exercise this weekend. My eating has been better the last couple of days, but I am still a little off. Well, I decided to put on my big girl panties today and deal with them. How you may ask? I am going to water aerobics tonight and kick some serious tushie. Then I'll come home and eat a sensible meal before watching The Biggest Loser and getting some shut-eye.

I just found out that my senior class is planning a trip to Myrtle Beach, SC in July of next year. I sooo want to be semi-swimsuit ready, and I use semi loosely. With that in mind, I am setting a pretty aggressive goal for my self. My plans are to lose 75lbs by July. I am off to a pretty good start at 15lbs down, so I need to lose 60 more. That's a little less than 10lbs a month. I think I can surpass that if I stick to my guns. I will be tracking, tracking, tracking and exercising everywhere in between. Wish me luck peeps!!!

    I started with a goal of 8 lbs in 4 weeks on October 4th. I am still taking it in 4 week chunks. If I am down 8lbs ever 4 weeks until then, I should be good. Thanks for the advice, support, and encouragement!

    Oh wow ...sounds exciting that you've set a goal and you have something to work towards to!

    I have some ambitious goals as well! I find that breaking them down to short term goals, ie by xmas, by end Jan etc makes the task less daunting because we are doing this for the long haul and sometimes the end of the tunnel is hard to see.

    I find that when i am PMSing, those are the times when I am really really wanting to JUMP off the whole healthy diet/exercise deal so I work extra hard to stock up on healthy carbs. Bananas, nuts, some dark chocolate works for me.

    Also, we often underestimate the amount of food that is right for us so yes tracking is a GREAT idea. Do let me know if I can support you any other way.
