It’s been a little while since I talked about my weight. Honestly, it’s because it’s been a bit stagnant – up and down, up and down. In the last month and a half, I’ve lost 2.2 pounds – way less than my goal, but it’s progress. I’m now 195 pounds.
So what’s working? My Fitbit, for one. It’s still providing me daily motivation and helping me remember to move around during the day. I’ve also been going to the gym on my lunch – usually just walking, but every little bit helps.
I’ve been thinking I needed something to get me back in gear. When Kristin and Erin posted about their 4 Week Fit Challenge, I thought it might be kick in the butt I needed. Since it’s a four week challenge, I’ve decided to set 4 goals.
My goals for May:
- 10,500 steps every day. I almost hit this in April, but getting sick on Easter ruined it for me. I’m determined to hit it this month.
- Do a workout a minimum of 3 times a week. This can be walking, a video, going outside with Abbie – anything. I just need to be active, and 3 times a week is an easy goal – so minimum 3, but striving for 5.
- Track EVERYTHING I eat, even the bad stuff. No leaving things out because I’m ashamed of what I ate. I hope this will help me concentrate on eating more vegetables (I seriously don’t eat enough of them) and less processed stuff. Sure, it’s convenient, but it’s not helping me.
- I’m giving up all sweets that I don’t make myself. This means no candy (my one exception? The peeps from Easter that I already opened). No cookies unless I bake them from scratch. No cake unless it’s one I’ve made. This will allow me to have them if I really want them, but it won’t be convenient, so maybe I won’t eat them as much! I’m really trying to cut down on my sugar intake, and I hope this’ll help!
