Day 245: BLC24 SMART Goals

Monday, January 20, 2014

Yay for BLC24! This round, I'm an Amber Amazon Warrior. Over the break, I gained 2 pounds. Not bad - but I completely ignored the plan I had written out on Day 210.

So now it's time to get serious. I feel like I've got a good plan in place for this round.

emoticon I will track all of my food 6 days a week for the next 12 weeks. I'm not intending for the 7th day to be a cheat day, but with Super Bowl Sunday, my son's birthday party, the start of the Walking Dead watch parties... It's difficult to determine what I'm eating because we do them potluck style and while it would be easy to get the recipes, I don't want to fill my recipe book with foods that I'm only going to eat once. Call it laziness if you will; I'm okay with that :)

emoticon I will work out at least 5 times per week, 20 minutes minimum, for the next 12 weeks. I'm going to get my streak this round! When the weather gets nicer, this will be a lot easier. Right now, it's hanging out in my bedroom with the door closed until my son realizes that Mommy isn't around, so he seeks me out, comes in the room, "Hi, Mommy!", and tackles me. So yeah. It's tough!

emoticon I will do yoga 1-2 times per week for 30 minutes at a time for the next 12 weeks. Yoga is great for my back (and my ortho highly recommends it), plus I have lost a lot of flexibility from my various physical ailments. Yoga day will be Tuesdays and potentially Saturdays/Sundays. I'm committed to Tuesdays, but depending on the positions, it can cause numbness in my hands, so if it gets particularly bad, I'll be skipping the weekend sessions.

emoticon I will take some "me" time to destress and/or meditate 5 days a week for the next 12 weeks. This will ideally occur during lunch at work.

emoticon I will get 7-8 hours of sleep each night for the next 12 weeks. I sometimes am too keyed up to go to bed on time, and occasionally I wake up in the middle of the night and can't get back to bed. Sleep is essential because I am so tired during the day. It's impossible to get uninterrupted sleep in my household, but by going to bed earlier, I should be able to help with that.

    I love the part about your son missing you and hunting you down. I have two cats that often "help" me workout by crawling underneath me when I'm doing planks!
