I posted some goals in my last blog entry and have been adding to them. I have not lost weight even though I have been following the "rules". But I am feeling a bit optimistic. I have a personal trainer set up. I will see him twice a week and if he isn't there, there are substitute trainers who know the same routines. I am quite sore, but not in an excruciating way. I know that I can spend a couple of hours at the gym and feel very virtuous, but not really challenging myself. Yes, I will be moving and that's a good thing, but the Personal Trainer has me moving in ways that take effort, in ways that cause a lot of soreness afterwards, but also in ways that I CAN HANDLE.
So here come my goals again--slightly revised:
Lose 5 pounds by end of month
No eating after dinner except for freggies
No insane spending sprees. No immoderate spending. No unnecessary spending.
Get in bed by 12 midnight at the latest!
Try to keep calm and carry on!
Pursue more time at a higher cardio range.
More and more and more vegetarian meals!
Make more no-knead healthy bread.
I need to stop wasting time. I need to avoid trying to get Spark Points just for the sake of getting points but rather to integrate Spark People into my daily life and not be consumed by it.
Things that are good for me;
Canoodling with the cats
Listening to classical music
Lots of exercise!
Go back to work with an insouciant attitude! What difference can it possible make in the end?
By the end of the year I'd like to be out of plus-sized clothing. Right now I am mostly a 1X. I'd like to get that down to 16 or 18 or 14--that neighborhood.
