15 day Vitality Challenge Prompt 1
Monday, May 21, 2012
I'm really excited about the Vitality challenge. I think this is something I desperately need. I can feel myself slipping into a depression like state because of things going on in my life and I think getting my mind off of it and focusing on positive things will really help. So here we go.
Nutrition goal- To track everything that goes into my mouth on the spark app. I think this will help a lot. I also think this will help hold myself accountable. (if I'm not losing weight I can go back and see what I might be doing wrong etc. ) I am also going to add not drinking and soda or high sugar drinks. Only water (with or without mio) tea and coffee. And to make sure I actually EAT breakfast. Lol.
Fitness goal- 15 to 20 min walks at least 5 days a week. This goal I am starting off semi small. I havent done any type of fitness workout etc. I know this doesnt sound like a lot but if I can keep this goal then I can definitely build onto it later. We have a park near us that the river runs through and it has a beach on it. Like actual sand beach which you dont find here in Missouri. : ( I think my husband and I want to walk on that beach when we go walking. So it's actually working me out more than just walking up and down my street. Plus we are going to San Diego the beginning of September so I need to get used to walking on a beach. LOL.
Self-love goal- Ok so this is my hardest goal. I dont love myself and I've always been down on myself. Of course I want that to change. I want to love myself no matter what. I dont know why I am like I am. I have zero self-esteem. I am constantly embarrassed for my husband if we go out somewhere. It's like I'm only focused on making sure he or anyone else likes/loves me. I need to change that bc I know I put off an uncomfortable vibe to people bc I am so shelled up. So for my self love goal I am stuck. I feel kind of embarrassed not knowing what to put down as my goal. My mind is just blank. So for now my self-love goal will be to try not to put myself down ALL the time. Try and be more outgoing and talking to people. I dont know if that sounds like a silly goal but I am stuck here.
I chose to participate in this challenge because I really think it will help put me in a better mindset. I feel like my mindset now is very unhealthy for me. I want to learn to love myself no matter what. At the end of the challenge I hope to have met some amazing people and to love myself more. Even if it's just a little more. I also hope it will help me hold myself accountable for my weightloss.
