Renewing my goals

Wednesday, May 29, 2013

I joined SparkPeople almost a year ago. I guess May is an energizing month for me! I used SP sporadically throughout the year, and I'm starting this new phase at almost the same weight I was last year. I have been following a slightly modified Fat Flush eating plan (ask me if you want the details) since January and am down about 10 lbs. Now I'm moving things to the next level, tightening up my eating plan and starting a C25K plan. I just got a hand-me-down treadmill that's way better than my old machine, so I'm psyched!

My biggest challenge is making an eating/exercise plan work while accommodating my family. They eat what I make, so that's not too hard, but they also eat extra stuff that I crave when I see them enjoying it. Fortunately, Fat Flushing helps minimize the cravings. The new treadmill helps with the family stuff, too, because my old treadmill was so loud that I couldn't use it early in the morning without waking everyone up (or making it impossible to hear the tv show they were watching). Now I can use it any time and the only thing my kids complain about is the show I choose to watch while I'm working out emoticon

I've decided to learn how to be a little more selfish and just do what I need to do to be my best self. Wish me luck!

    Thanks for the support! I do live in a good area for running outside, when the weather cooperates. Sometimes I can even get my kids to run with me. I'm not registered for a 5K but am gearing up for running with a very good friend with whom I'll be vacationing in July (and that running will be entirely outdoors).

    Thanks again!

    Congratulations on starting again on SP! I hope your C25K plan goes well. Just make sure you also run outdoors, especially if you're actually entering a 5K race. A treadmill can't quite match running in the outdoors.

    Anyway, best of luck to you! emoticon emoticon emoticon
