Goal Update: 30 lbs by 9/4/14
Wednesday, April 02, 2014
My husband's 30th birthday is this year, and I've been stressing over what to get him/make for him/do for him. We share finances, so buying him something just feels like deciding for him how he spends his money. I like to make things by hand, but most of the things I make are very girl-oriented, and he's all man.
So what better way to show him I love him, than to get healthy for him?
Now, don't get me wrong. He is very good about letting me know he is attracted to me at my current weight and fitness level. But I know that since he loves me, he would like me to be healthier. And I'm not just doing this for myself or for him, but for our future children, which I'm sure he appreciates, too.
Also, don't assume that it's all about weight. If I gain muscle and lose fat, and it doesn't amount to 30 lbs lost, I'm ok with that. But my goal is to be more fit, and lose the unhealthy jiggle.
I also want to be able to run 3 miles in 30 minutes, (or better) to continue the theme for his 30th birthday.
What else can I add? How about losing at least 3 inches? 3 off my tummy, t3 off each thigh, and a total inches of 3 inches off my arms- 1.5 off each arm.
Do you think this is a good idea? Do you think my goals are reasonable? Do you have tips for smaller goals/habits to help me to my end goal?
Here goes nothing.
Wish me luck! :)
