28 Days to 35! My Challenge!

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

A whole lot has been going on...the one consistent thing in my life has been my weight. Although, it ideally would be going down, I have gotten on the up 5, down 5 roller coaster and it's time to get off this thing.

My birthday is in 28 days. I was thinking on the plane today and a little tonight...there are changes I know I can make to get me healthier by my 35th birthday. I would LOVE to be in Onderland, but I know 16 lbs in 28 days is unrealistic. However, about 10 pounds in 28 days is a good goal! I would need to aim for about 2.5lb loss each week. I know if I really try, I can do it.

So what's stopping me?

Nothing! Today I start my challenge...To be a healthier in 28 days, before I become 35! What does that mean? I will get my exercise or 10,000 steps a day and I will eat less than 1600 calories a day. I will make the healthiest decisions I can each day, to care and be kind to myself. I will also refrain from speaking negatively or critically to myself. I will no longer tear myself down with poor self talk, but build myself up with positive, supportive thoughts and actions.

It's time, Kristi. It's time.

    Hey Ryder B! It's been a little more difficult than I had thought...only because I have been traveling for business the last two weeks (only home 2 days). I started a new job, while it's not ideal, it's better than where I was.

    I am going to try to weigh in tomorrow at WW, from my scale this morning, I've lost a pound. So, all in all, not too bad! I agree though...Food is the tough part of this whole thing. I don't mind exercising, in fact I enjoy it. It's learning to have my brain work how I want it to, rather than falling into old habits.

    Maybe, you just need to plan a weeks worth of meals out, go to the store and try that. It usually works for me because I like "control"! LOL! Hope your week has been going well! K~

    How did your first 7 days go?
    I've really been struggling to stay focused and motivated, so since 80% of weight loss is suppose to be about the food, I've been reading all my favorite books trying to come up with a nutritional plan that will work for me. (and my husband since I do the cooking) The 17 day diet, (not a dirty word), the Zone, the Fresh Energy Cookbook, Practical Paleo, and guess what… I ordered another one emoticon It's called, It Starts with Food. I'm hoping it will be the last one I ever need. They have a great website, with a lot of FREE info, here's the link if you want to check it out.

    Anyway, congratulations on your 28 day challenge. Good luck! You've got this!
