The next 50 days - counting down....
Thursday, December 02, 2010
As of today, I have 50 days until I start my vacation to celebrate the big 50! My initial goal was to lose 50 pounds by the time I reached 50 – well that is not going to happen but I hope to be more than half way there by then. I can still reach my goal while I am 50 so as long as that happens I will be happy.
So today sees the start of my 50-day plan:
– to eat sensibly and healthily, allowing myself some treats over Christmas
– to keep up my exercise routine which, apart from my Zumba classes, has slipped from what it was. I finally made my first trip to the gym on my own this week so now there are no excuses to get down there and workout more
– to set myself an extra task on each of those 50 days, such as an extra 10 minutes strength training, or a meat-free day, or taking 10 minutes for myself. Just small goals to keep me on track and stress free.
– to start planning my trip – I am spending a couple of days in Fort Lauderdale before going on a Caribbean cruise so need to plan what clothes to take, and of course what shopping I might have to do before I start the cruise.
So in 50 days I hope to be a few more pounds lighter and even fitter, so that I can say ‘yes, I am fab at 50!’
