A GOAL WITHOUT A PLAN IS ONLY A DREAM
Tuesday, March 25, 2014
I hate to admit this, but 6 weeks ago I fell and broke my ankle. This put me down for a few days, and a little limited for the rest of the time. Of course, I had to drop out of water aerobics and had to stay off my feet and keep the leg propped. This put a real damper on my exercise program. It also put me on the pity pot. I could not go to Weight Watchers because of the distance from the parking lot to the meeting room and the ramps to climb in between. . I let the whole episode put me into an eating mode and I certainly did that - eat.
As you probably have guess by now, the pounds took advantage of my lack of exercise and indulgence into the food. The pounds showed up in hordes to claim my body. I am certainly not going to admit here how many pounds I did put on, as I am ashamed. These pounds really got in the way of things I needed to adjust because of the boot that I had to wear.
But this is turning around. Two teams that I am on are starting their spring rounds now and there is a lot of enthusiasm within both teams. I am active with both. Both have lots of good plans in the works for the new rounds. I am most definitely going to take advantage of everything both teams have to offer.
Use my new WW Activity Link that my dearest friend got for me.
Go to water aerobics at least 3, maybe 4, times a week
Use my off days to do a lot of strength training.
Start with short lengths and gradually build up my walking
Because of the activity link, I will start tracking my foods on WW Etools
Plan my meals ahead of time
Concentrate on WW power foods
Partner with my dear friend in sharing nutrition plans
Replace junk with fruit
Self talk more about my worth and meaning
Remind myself each day at day break that I am worth every effort that goes into these efforts
Work more on the positive and wash away the negative
Absorb the positive in all my teams
Be more positive and not be a downer
Setting this plan, I must remind myself that I have to Just Do It and not push them aside. As my dear friend told me, I need to do it or get off the pot.
