My 12 Week Plan of Action

Saturday, September 15, 2012

This is hard for me as I've sort of swept my goals under the rug lately. I know I'm sounding like a broken record but I CANNOT get the hang of these 12 hour days. I'm so exhausted after my shift that I can't exercise. And I know all of y'all super fit people will say 'don't make excuses or don't say CAN'T' well, I CAN'T!

But, what I CAN do is exercise diligently on my 4 days off. I will do that. Every damn day, I'll do it. No matter how tired or busy I am because I deserve to be fit and healthy. I always feel better when I work out so that's my exercise plan.

My healthy eating habits have been swept under that same rug. That is one super duper lumpy rug. I'm ok with eating healthy at work because I bring ALL of my food so I normally don't stray. Plus, I'm weird about eating food other people bring in so no worries there. The problem I'm having lately is pigging out on my days off. I look forward to it. I plan what junk I'm going to scarf while sitting in front of the t.v. This one's a little tougher to solve.

---1---Don't buy the junk. I can't eat it if I don't buy it. Easy peasy.
---2---Get my fitness in early in the day so I'm less likely to want to screw up. It's worked
in the past.
---3---Stop looking at food as a reward. I do this all the time. I think I'll re-read The Spark.
---4---Go back to keeping a food diary. I will still log food on spark but there's something
about physically writing down what I eat and how I'm feeling. Gonna get on that. Even
bought a pretty notebook.

I will set a reward system for myself. Small things that will encourage me. Just not food, lol.

    I love your plan, I especially like where you say you are going to "Stop looking at food as a reward. I do this all the time" - I do this all the time too and it can be hard for me to stop. I like how you laid out all your problem areas and your plan to change them-very honest with yourself which is a great way to start things out!

    You can totally do this! emoticon

    You realize from your plan that it can be done. There are many motivational tips for us here on SP. Maybe just a picture on the fridge of the size you want to be will help. For me the best yet is getting into a challenge with a SP friend. Read my blog "The Pact".
    Anything is attainable if we truly comitt and work consistently to that goal no matter how long it takes.

    Your goals seem real realistic and I'm sure you can achieve them. I like how you aren't going to buy junk food. I have to do the same thing because if it is in my apartment it's going to be gone within days. If you are looking for a fix though I highly recommend the special K cracker chips. They are very good, and a serving isn't horrible at all. Worth if you have one of those days where you just need junk food but don't want to give in. emoticon Row Hard!!

    You have a point - a 12 hour work day,and 8 hours of sleep (yeah, I know that's probably not happening) leaves little time for everything else. Your best bet may be to try and sneak in little bits of fitness in your work days - park a little further from the door. Grab a few wall pushups or jumping jacks on a bathroom break (sounds strange, but it works for me!). And like you said, save your real workouts for your days off. Nothing wrong with that! Concentrate on finding ways to plan ahead healthy meals that you can grab and take with you on those busy days!

    My DD wears 13s - I didn't even notice the size of your feet! LOL.
