Stayed up until 3a last night writing down my daily goals for the next few weeks.
Plan is very realistic– first week, goal is to lose 1 lb. I am reducing carbs daily, until I get back down to 20. Reducing cals slowly, until I get back down to 1200. I’m slowly increasing activity and doing a video and walk daily.
A new facet of my plan is meditation, both in the morning and evening. My life coach gave me customized affirmations, 2 pages of them, and I have picked one per day to focus on. I’m starting slow, meditating for 2 min in the am and pm, and focusing on that day’s affirmation. I will increase to meditation for 10-15 min.
I’m really refocusing whole heartedly, mind and body.
I also started adding positive sayings to start each day– fitness motivation, inspiration, etc. Missed the first couple days, but I’m really trying to start each day off on the right foot and continue to be positive and mindful throughout the day.
This is not going to be easy. I really struggle with food and consistency. But, I absolutely have to do this. I’m determined to stay focused and consistent and I know I’ll see results.
I’m trying to be very realistic in my goals, and accept that it’s going to take time. I’m not going to lose massive amounts of weight overnight. I’m going to lose slowly, but that’s ok. I need to lose and keep the weight off, instead of this dramatic yo-yo.
Weighed this morning, for a baseline of Day 1 being back on track: 269.0.
By next Sunday, my goal is to have lost 1 lb. More importantly, my goals are to hit every daily goal, and get back to being consistent. Log my food, workout, and keep moving!
Oh– I also listed a place to mark a success every single day– what is something I did right that day? Really trying to change my way of thinking, and learn to be kind to myself. Wish me luck!!!
