Jan 1st reminder & Jan 31st update!! Am I on track-- Let's see!! This was my promise to myself at the beginning of the year!


Jan. 1, 2018 Monday.

Good morning. The day and the year are beginning and I am ready to go. I'm starting 2018 off with a plan.

Today, I promise I will not give up!

I pledge that no matter, how many ups and downs I pass through, I will continue on my journey.

I pledge to make a NEW START today, and forgive myself for my past, and to stop being so critical of myself.

I pledge to take control of myself, to stop making excuses, and stop blaming other people or situations

I pledge to treat myself as I would my best friend, because that is who I am.

I pledge to stay in the race and to be a WINNER!

My beginning plan.

ST 3 (20 min) x a week
Cardio 3 (30 min) x a week; take 8 weeks to get up to 250 min. cardio weekly--(wk 2 do 30min; wk 3 do 35 min; wk 4 do 40min; wk; 5 do 45min; wk 6 do 4 days; wk 7 do 5 days; wk 8 do 6 day
This is to start-- In 8 weeks I will add walking to this.

Eat between 1370-1720 daily calorie goal -New goal 1290-1640
Brkft- 6-6:30 am; Lunch 11am: Snack 2:30-3 pm; Dinner 6-7pm
Eat 5 servings Fruit & veggies
Drink 7-8 glasses water
Maintain a menu and follow it.
Keep junk food out of the house. (stick to low calorie treats-)

I usually waited until 9-11am to eat brkft to keep from munching all day. It's seems like when I eat in the morning I let out Miss Pacman; I'm trying to learn how to control her. The last 3 days it's been working. (update--Sometimes eat by 7 am-- do get munchies; still need works)

To help distract me from eating I have color pages to do and yarn to crochet. And if that gets boring I'll find some other things- like redoing my photo albums. The years have made them fall apart.

I have meals, workouts, pet meds all on my phone calendar- I like that! sends me reminders to water plants, give dog bath, etc. Now to start adding house chores to my list.

I can do this!! And if I get sidetracked I NEED ALL SPARKER'S TO HUNT ME DOWN AND MAKE ME ACCOUNTABLE!! I've got this!! HERE'S TO A GREAT YEAR AHEAD!
