March Goals

Saturday, February 28, 2015

it's okay to want to lose weight - move stones.
What's reasonable? As a goal this month? I want to lose 5 lbs.
Yes. How fabulous would that feel? Very.

I will weigh myself tomorrow morning… in my bday suit.
(I will not react in beatmyselfup mode if i am up after a week of eating out with out of town guests)

I will go to the gym 4x this week (or more).
I will work out 40min - 60min each visit.
I will drink a lot of water daily.
I will focus carbs in the a.m., protein fruits and veggies
I will reduce my coffee intake… maybe

I will be mindful
I will reach out and connect
I will read
I will BE IN MY BODY --
My Temple
My Castle
I will love myself

I will plan my midwest trip for April/May
Got to see the GI doc in Chicago… colonoscopy …. etc

How committed to my life with Joe in CA am I?
I'm still not feeling ALL-IN.
Dieting and Weight Loss as my central focus…. is a life long skewed view of the world
What to do about that?
I do not know.
Yet… am open to receiving insights…
am open to change.

More later.

    5 is an awesome goal. I'm thinking that would be more reachable, obtainable than my 8. we will push forward. Keep on my friend. Coffee is not bad... Coffee is your friend. Just read a study that said that 4 cups a day is great for your health. drink up honey! emoticon

    You pose many of the same thoughts that run through my head. I, too, feel like focusing on my weight since 15 years of age has gotten hellishly old. My steps are to just try to live and enjoy life, to balance my efforts, and to just remember that my wishes do matter. That helps some to take the edge off of feeling bad because I'm not "disciplined enough" or whatever words I'm using that week. I have to realize that this IS my life (hence, the I Matter team) and that I want to have a healthy one, and I have to figure out how to accomplish that without making myself miserable in the process. So I try to notice how I feel when I eat less junk, and remind myself that junk isn't off limits (balance) but that in excess it makes me actually feel worse. NO, it does not always work, but it's what I'm trying right now.

    Also, no beating yourself up over a high number. Just see it as a new start point, a new chance to succeed, a new chance to kick off a healthy life. Like when your house is a mess and you clean it, the difference is so noticeable. Same thing with starting new with healthy pursuits, the difference is often noticeable much more quickly.
