It's March already

Monday, March 01, 2010

Wow...didn't we just ring in the new year? Yep, 2 months ago. Not much change to report. No success at goals for either January or February. So why should March be any different. It won't be if I don't change my ATTITUDE . If I don't change how I see myself. If I don't change what I BELIEVE about myself. I don't change what I think I DESERVE. Stink'n think'n breeds stink'n results.

So day 1 of March...

Weight: 209.8
Goal 6 lbs - 1.5 lbs per wk

3 goals.

1) stay within calorie range.
I plan to do this by planning my meals the day before. Packing my lunch. Measuring everything! My idea of portion size is wayyyyyyyy off.

2) exercise 30 min per day
I plan to do this by going in early and so I can walk at the beginnin go my lunch. I'm also taking 2 water classes on Monday (90 minutes) and 1 water class on Wednesday (45minutes). I have set Tuesday pm aside for a 3 mile walk and Saturday aside for longer walks. I'm walking a 7K on March 13th.

3) 8+ glasses of water per day
I plan to do this by placing a bottle of frozen water on the nightstand before I go to bed. In the morning I will begin the day by drinking the bottle of water. I'll keep a glass of ice water at my desk to drink. I can set my cell phone alarm to remind me every 2 hours to refresh my glass of ice water. If it's not empty, I'll have to drink it so I can refill it.

I know there are other things I need to do. 1 is lift weights. With a gym membership you would think that would be a no brainer but it's not. I even have a set of 5lb and 8lb dumbbells at home. But these 3 are a start. I've learned that a gungho attitude only produces disappointment and failure for me. It might work for someone else but not me. So this is my plan for March.

    YEA!! I am so happy to see March!! It has been a cold, snowy and windy winter. NOw that the weather should turn around it will be easier to go outside and get exercise. As spring gets into full gear, more fruit and vegetable stands will open and it is easier to eat healthy!
