It's been 7 weeks since I resigned from weight watchers. I've been trying to figure out what I can do outside of the meeting room to help people reach their goals and take charge of their life.
It sounds so obvious but one thing that I always come back to is that it is MY choice to eat healthy or eat junk. It's MY choice to exercise and live an active lifestyle or not.
I have refocused my goal setting and wanted to share on my blog and invite you along.
At the beginning of 2010 my doctor told me my sugar levels were a little high- nothing to be too concerned about. She suggested I watch my sugar intake and lose a couple of pounds. I am at a healthy weight according to the BMI calculator and have been for 9 years now. But, even I realize that I can be healthier. Here we are in August and I haven't gained weight, but I haven't lost weight either.
Before embarking on any journey it is helpful to ask, Why do I want this? Is it important to me?
Make your answers detailed and write them down. Later on you need to be able to remember why you started this in the first place.
Two weeks ago I set some weekly goals for myself. I want to share these goals with you and challenge you to set some yourself.
Do aerobic activity 150 minutes week. This may not sound like much, but even though I've met this goal it isn't as easy as it sounds. If your goal is some type of activity make sure it is a good fit with your life. When I start losing weight my goal was 60 minutes a week.
Drink more water. I don't like water and I'm not keeping track of how much. I'm just making sure I'm drinking plenty.
Take a vitamin every day.
Strength train with free weights. My goal is 3 x week.
Close the kitchen 2 hours before bedtime. Food is energy and I don't need energy to sleep!
Are you ready to make some positive changes? Do you need some accountability? Feel free to post your goals in the comment section or send me an email. Make your goals realistic and achievable!!
I'll check in on the weekend and share my progress and you can do the same.
