Day 3 - baby goals

Thursday, January 03, 2013

Happy January 3rd!

I am feeling very discouraged this morning. Despite exercising for the past week and watching what I eat (at least 90% of the time), I have gained weight. emoticon Plus, I have to go to the Dr today and I don't want them to write down that number!!

So, with this in mind, I realized that I set BIG 2013 goals, but no intermediate or smaller goals. I know from experience that this is a big deal.

So... my first baby goals will be:
* Reach 475 minutes of cardio in January
* Under 150 by Feb 1 (this is only 3.8 pounds as of this morning - should be totally do-able, right?)

These are both a bit of a stretch for me... since I have a real problem with exercising consistently and I keep hitting 149.8 and then gaining a few pounds back. I'm ready to be done with the 150's! (Can't really believe I'm saying that because it was SO hard to get to the 150's two years ago... but it's time to move on!)

    You can TOTALLY meet those goal,s and then kick their butts!

    And I know exactly how you feel about being under 150. I'm having the same problem with getting under 250. Drives me NUTS!

    Anyway, good luck with your goals, you've got this!

    Thanks, LadyJ - that is something I struggle with. My plan for 2013 is 2-3 days a week of strength and 3-4 of cardio.

    Those are great baby steps, don't forget to incorporate strength training to help up that burn. Lean muscle does a body good!!!!
