My 12-Week Plan
Monday, April 30, 2012
So anothere round of the Biggest Loser Challenge is under way and we've been tasked with blogging a plan of success for the next 12 weeks. Oh boy. I am so out of commission with the blogs and setting realistic goals. I put it off until the last day of the challenge (TODAY!), so here goes.
My # 1 goal is to be CONSISTENT. I'm tired of feeling like I'm always starting over. I'm tired of quitting/giving up. So my plan is to take small steps, that if done consistently will add up to success! My #2 goal is to take better care of myself. Physically, mentally and emotionally. I am way too hard on myself, which adds to my feelings of failures, which adds to my giving up because I feel like I don't do anything right anyway and what's the point?? This has to stop. I want to celebrate the positive changes I've made and continue to make, the small victories I achieve and who I am today (thanks Dulci!!)! :-) I want to feel and look healthy. So here we have my master plan:
~ Resume my daily journal/blog of JEMS. J = journal my brief thoughts on the day. The good, the bad, the ugly and how I will change things if needed. E = what exercise did I do? M = what did I eat? S = name a success for the day! Putting it in writing will keep me accountable on a daily basis and force me to do better so I'll look better to my Spark friends! :-D
~ Mediate, do yoga, or soak in the tub (or do all 3!) at least three times a week. Slow down, unwind and just be still.
~ Track all my food on SparkPeople. This is really hard for me. Just because I feel like I don't always have time to sit here and input everything. But I think I need to just get in the habit and it doesn't take very long. It just took me 10 minutes before I started this blog to enter today's food, including what I plan to eat for dinner. No excuses! So every day of the week is probably not going to happen - just being realistic here!! So at least 5 days a week. More than likely that will be M - F. But we'll see! Eventually I would also like to get better at inputting the day's meals BEFORE I eat them. Plan out my calories.
~ Don't skip more than one day of exercising. Even if it's just 15 minutes of movement.
Here we go!
