So, the last time I posted my goals, I made it only four or five days before falling off the horse completely. I've climbed back on now, hit the reset button, and now I'm happily trotting down the path toward being fit and healthy once again. I'm keeping the same goals that I had last time:
Goal #1: Work out every day, for 30 days.
I'm 5 days into the 30 Day Shred. My
goal is not to skip a single day, so that if I do miss one here or
there (because life happens) I'll still be working out at least 6 days a
Goal #2: Cut down on sweets.
I'm a slave to my sweet tooth. I know myself well enough to know that
if I completely eliminate sweets from my diet, that I'll cave and binge
periodically. So, for the duration of my Shred, I'll be limiting myself
to one small serving of sweets daily.
Goal #3: Make healthier meal choices.
More fresh fruits and veggies, fewer fried and processed foods.
Goal #4: Lose 1" from my waist by the end of the Shred.
I don't care about pounds, because they're misleading. I want to lose
the flab, and gain muscle tone. I'll simply be using my waist
measurement, taken weekly, to quantify my progress.
I'm feeling much more optimistic, now. I've got the depression under better control, and it's amazing how much that one thing filters into and changes every aspect of my life.
Sometimes, we just need a reminder, a push in the right direction, or some inspiration.
Especially on Mondays.
I think this is doable, and more along the lines of what I'm wanting to achieve. She's not ripped, and she has lovely contours. She's a bit thinner than I aim to be (my thighs will never be that slim!) but she still looks healthy. Now, to just get working out.
