Goals for the Next couple of Months

Monday, December 09, 2013

I'm in a FUNK!!! I've been bouncing around in the 150's since July. I can't seem to lose another pound even on my strictest weeks! The last two month's I have been terrible. Yes November I made it through 25/30 days eating no sweets. Apparently that's not my problem since I didn't lose anythign!!

My end goal was 143. Why? That is a healthy weight for my height. I'm 5'4 and a healthy weight is 145, so I made my goal 143 because that would be 100 lbs. I can't even get under 150. It's frusterating. I'm not giving up don't worry. This is a lifestyle and there are going to be bumps in the road.

I have to change it up. Let's be honest I have a busy schedule working two jobs and it's stressing me out. I got a new job I start in 1 week!! I'm totally excited about it. I will be a claims adjuster for a big insurance company. I will make enough money to work one job, but I have to pay off a credit card first. I'm going to stay at the OG part-time until my card is paid off. That is my financial goal! I know with starting a new job I am going to be stressed out for a bit. My training is 8 weeks! So, I have decided to make small weekly goal for the month of December. It's a holiday month and my goal is just to maintain this month and start pushing and losing in January. I want to be realistic. That doesn't give me the excuse to eat whatever I want. It just means I know how crazy busy I will be and will be out of town one weekend. Plus Christmas and New Years.

December Challenge: 90 second planks a day. I'm on day 9 and kicking butt!
This weeks food challenge: Give up one thing I overeat on- Peanut Butter. I have a problem ha.
Next Weeks nutrition challenge: Eat 3-5 servings of freggies (vegetables and fruits) each day. Including weekends. Which is where I lack!
Week of Christmas- Have 5 Days of No Sweets. Christmas Eve and Christmas are allowed! Don't let yourself go crazy the whole week!
Week of New Years- Limit the Sodium. We should have less than 2300 mg of sodium a day. One day of higher is allowed, but no more than that!

Fitness Goals-
Run a faster 5k: Current PR is 31:06
Challenge myself on the Stairmaster
Mix up my workouts. I'm trying a new website Do one video whether it's a 10 min or 60 min one once a week for the rest of December.
Complete 300 minutes or more a week!

General Goals-
Continue with more than 64 oz of water a day.
Share goals with someone to hold accountable.
Share challenges with my Facebook Weightloss group.

Eat Healthier!!
Track what I eat (I have been terrible about this the last couple of months)
Switch up my breakfast. I'm eating oatmeal everyday because it's easy, but it probably doesn't help me weightloss.
For January look back into doing the high carb/low carb diet.
Finish Chris Powell's book
Look into buying another fitness book.

    I am also 5"4 inches tall thanks for letting me know what a healthy goal weight would be for someone of my height. I had put 135 pounds for me. if you say 145 is a healthy weight maybe I should make my goal about 140 pounds as well.

    It looks like you have a good action plan in place. for me I am going to do Jorge Cruise.
