Last week I started writing down weight, and I set a weigh day goal (which I met) but I didn’t plan enough.
Was reading tonight to set small goals, and journal. I’m utilizing my day planner as my “journal”.
This time I’m setting daily step goals, calorie goals, carb goals, etc. Going to work my way back down to where I need to be– build up my step goals, while decreasing my calorie and carb goals.
I’ll still keep track of weight, too. But I think this is a good way to keep me on track and motivated. I’m being very reasonable. For instance, my one and only goal tomorrow is to hit 3500 steps.
I know. That’s nothing. But, I’ve been hit or miss (mostly miss) exercising. Tonight I did a couple miles, but I am not consistently doing that.
So, tomorrow will be my first day keeping track, and I know I have carb-filled leftovers, and my cals have been out of control, so I’m only focusing on a realistic step goal. I have to actually walk to hit that– I work from home and sit at a desk all day.
The next day I kept the 3500 step goal, added to reduce carbs (no starch carbs) quit sweet tea (for the millionth time– my arch nemesis) and stay under 1400 cals.
My goal is to get back up to consistently hitting 10k steps a day, while being under 20 carbs, with 1000-1200 cals intake and at least 90g protein and 72oz water.
Which, trying to do all of that immediately would be totally overwhelming. I think I’m being practical this way, and hopefully it will help me get and stay back on track.
