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 week.
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.
Here's to being healthy. :)
