Day 7: thinking about a goal which wouldn't be weight focused

Monday, November 19, 2012

So today is Monday. It's been almost a week since I signed in to SP. I really enjoyed this page and my boyfriend thinks that I am obsessed as I try to track everything I eat and read a lot of articles every day.

I lost almost 1 kg (to be exact, 900 gr) from the day I signed in and it feels really good. However, this morning I thought I should change my goal to something more long-term. Of course, I am really happy to get on the scale and see that I lost weight, and every gr makes my day. But I feel that I need something else to motivate me so that the weight would be just a secondary goal. Any ideas?

Eating: I replaced all my pasta, rice, bread and other things with a whole-grain version. And I discovered a whole-grain pita which is sooo delicious. I made a weekly eating plan and sticked to it. Yesterday I had an ice cream (sugar free), but it is not a big deal as I spent 2 hours in the gym and then went for a long one-hour-and-a-half walk in the evening. I prefer to give me a treat once in a while to get obsessed about eating something and trying to avoid it (from my personal experience I know that if I keep thinking about an ice cream for more than 3 days, I will buy a pint of sweet fat vainilla ice cream and will eat it all). Today I am going to eat a chicken breast salad for lunch and rice with veggies for dinner. I also bought some fruits for snack.

Workout: I am not going to the gym today, but I will walk to work (and back). I will also exercise at home with SP videos in the evening.

I think I am getting lazy about going to the gym. I really need to just GO there. So this week I will go to the gym on Tuesday, Wednersday and Friday. I will try to walk as much as I can during other days. Let's see if I can make it to 74 this week.

    I exercised faithfully and really wasn't dropping pounds until I really starting tracking everything I ate and more importantly, did something about lowering the amount ingested every day.
    Stay with it!
