Stepping up my game plan

Monday, May 06, 2013

A week ago I took my measurements. During the week I did a little to reach my goals- apparently very little as the scale didn't move nor did the tape measure.

Yesterday I made some visuals to remind me of where I want to be. I'm starting with an 8 week program. I made a calendar with plenty of room to fill in all of my activities which I will record with different colored markers. I want to see every day full of colors - painting my rainbow!

I tracked the food I planned to eat today and left some calories in case of unanticipated hunger during the day, or an evening snack if I have calories left.

This morning I w0ke up late. I was going to rush to get to work and change my meal plan for the day. Instead I called in sick. No guilt...I need a good solid day to get my game going and I didn't want to feel too tired later and put it off for another day. Today IS the day!

So far I had my healthy breakfast which I prepared and ate leisurely, did my upper body strength training and 30 minutes of cardio.. all before noon! I plan to make my healthy lunch and relax while I enjoy it, then do some chores around the house and some yard work followed by my afternoon snack, a healthy dinner and then a zumba class tonight.

I'm putting myself on a strict plan for the next few weeks. Will push myself to get the maximum out of the time and a good jump start on my program.

I also bought myself a plane ticket for a much needed vacation. In less than 5 weeks I'll be visiting my friend in Florida for 12 days.

I'm taking care of me, body, mind and spirit. This is what I need, this is what I'm doing and it sure feels good!

    We are on the same path right now for sure... I have decided that I need to give myself a good kick in the bootie... and started a 10 week challenge on April 22nd. The 1st week was tough as it followed some hard events at home - but last week was great and going forward, it will keep being even greater!

    It's like a light bulb lit up and I'm not letting it go out again. This is going to be OUR year!!

    Enjoy your day off 'sick' and much needed vacation coming up. Sounds divine!
