12 Weeks to Lifestyle Changes!!
Friday, June 07, 2013
For our first weekend challenge of BLC22, we have been asked to blog about our goals for this round of BLC.
There are so many things that I want to change, it's nice to sit down and pare those down so they don't get so overwhelming and while the weight loss is nice, I almost think it is secondary to creating healthy, life long habits. With those habits, the weight loss just follows.
So, my goals for the next 12 weeks:
1. Get back to a morning workout routine. An hour of working out before getting ready for work doesn't seem like too much to ask of myself (especially when I used to do it faithfully). So, I'm setting my alarm clock to go off earlier, I'm putting my workout clothes out and I am getting out of bed the first time that alarm goes off.
2. Cut out the sugar. This is the area I feel like I struggle with the most. I have a book called "Beyond Sugar Shock" that deals with cutting sugar out of your diet. My first step is to read that book and incorporate the ideas so I quit eating (and craving the sugar)
3. Track my nutrition. Here is another place I've fallen off the wagon since the end of the last BLC round. I am making this a priority every day. No going to bed unless every bit of food I have eaten for the day is recorded in my tracker.
4. Meet new friends. I feel like I am already well on my way to doing this but with time and sharing, I feel those friendships become deeper. I will continue to check in with my team at least once a day and learn about their successes and struggles.
