It has been over 6 months since my last post...

That sounds like something of a confession - well - it is. I haven't been tracking, I haven't made great choices and because of that I am up about 4 pounds. Not liking that at all. I have a potential trip to Florida in April and a summer by the poolside - I really don't want to put on the same swim suit I am wearing now!

Starting and stopping, over and over and over again. I follow the plan for a while but then life gets in the way and something has to give so I stop tracking. I do ok for a while but then I stop making good choices. One good thing through all of this, I haven't totally given up the fitness part of it. It slowed down over the holidays but it didn't stop completely. I have to figure out why I stop trying when I have success. Why don't I want it more when I do get success? Am I that lazy?

I think I have set grand goals for myself but not little ones to meet along the way. I certainly haven't rewarded myself for doing what I have done well. I need to change that.

Here are my goals for the upcoming week. (My weigh-in is always on Friday and that starts a new week)

1. Track food every day.
2. Drink more water.
3. Work out 5 times - 2 weight training, 2 pure cardio and 1 circuit training.
4. Try for a 1-2 lb. weight loss.
5. Reward myself even if I only achieve 80% of my goal. I think it will be 2 hours of window shopping... Some "Me" time. :)
6. Report back in another blog on my progress.

Have a good week!

    I do the same thing. do really well for a while then it stops, who knows why we do that but maybe this time will be different it has to be or we both will be wearing that swimsuit we don't want to in 6 months. Good Luck to you ..
