Well, April has been a disaster. Not really, I mean I joined a boot camp class right by work and have been going on average twice a week. That's been great, and really hard. The eating stuff? It's not going great. It's going well for about 4 days a week, and a disaster the other three days. I need to get recommitted, now. I'm taking this opportunity to reacquaint myself and recommit myself to my weight loss goals. I'm going to do a five part series, each a step to help guide myself to my ultimate goal, and how I'll get there.
Today: The beginning. Only ONE goal at a time.
That's right. Let's not focus on a 10 minute mile, or a 25 inch waist. (Is that possible?) Let's just focus on my main goal here: to lose 20 lbs. A big number, yes, but an achieveable one. Only a few weeks ago, I was half way there! Now I'm... almost half way there, again. So that's my one goal for the time being: 20 lbs. Yes, other good things will come with that. Smaller waists, stronger body, healthier me. But the weight- that's what I'm focused on now.
I know- it's not always just about the scale. It's about what else comes off when the scale is staying the same. Muscle weighs more than fat. I know, I know, I know. But I'm sick of plateauing. It's been too long, and I'm growing stagnant. Today's mission: really start thinking about how to jump start my weight loss again.
Today, I'm recommitting to my goal of 20 lbs. I'm not going to punish myself for where I am- I'm going to celebrate that I've already achieved so much. But I need to REFOCUS. 20 lbs, here I come!
