I've made no secret that I'm following the Weight Watchers plan/Spark People since February. Lately, I've been doing the "Weight Watchers Waltz". Up two pounds--Down 3 lbs.-- Up 2.5 lbs--Down 1.5 lbs. I've been having terrible problems with my stomach and other related areas. I'm also not moving as much as I want to or SHOULD. Time to revise my goals. I've realized that I don't have a good enough blend of long term and short term goals. I need variety, and I need somewhat instant gratification. Losing 140 lbs will take time.
Short Term (Things to do daily or weekly):
Dedicate myself to intentional exercise DAILY. Could be 90 minutes.....could be 10 minutes. Just make sure my body gets moving and keeps moving.
Get back to tracking everything. I fall off and get back on the wagon way too much. Need to just suck it up and stay on the wagon. I need to know what's going into my body.
Drink 12 glasses of water per day. I feel much better when I do this.
Mid-Term (1-4 months):
Complete another round of C25K in preparation for the 5k's I've signed up for this summer.
Continue to purge unnecessary household items. Clutter leads me down a dark road.
Enjoy the summer veggies and make them the center of my meal with meat as a "side dish"
Somewhat Long Term: (4 months-1 year)
Attempt a 10k on Thanksgiving Day
Take some baking classes (I'd love to get good with pastry)
I want the ability to shop at J Crew. I love their clothes and want to wear them and look GOOD doing it.
I want to wear a bikini. I've never worn one. More than just wearing it, I'd like the confidence to ROCK IT!
I'd like food choices to get easier. I'd like to feel less tempted by junk.
