I’m resetting all my spark streaks and ticker. Even though I haven’t gained weight back…I have been stuck at 60 pounds lost for 2 years and somehow seeing that 60 pounds lost on my page…has had some kind of mental block on me. So, I wiped it out and I think looking at it now saying ZERO pounds lost will motivate more to get that ticker moving again!
**I promise that my ticker WILL move down this year!**
Focus on nutrition and portion control…I really think this is the key to why my weight has been stuck for so long! I will eat as clean as possible, lots of green shakes (I know I felt great when I was drinking them regularly) and will also add lots of veggie/bean soups to the mix. I really want to help my body be as healthy as it can be so…low carb, low sugar… and will also experiment with gluten free.
**I promise to eat to nourish my body with what it needs not what it always wants!**
Cardio fitness has been something that I actually enjoy but has been hard to maintain these past two years between surgeries and injuries. I’m feeling overall healthy now (with the exception of knee issues) so…I will focus on mixing up my fitness routine without injuring those knees any further!
I really want to get back to running also as I saw the most weight loss when I was running. But…ahh these darn knees. **I promise to continue with cardio 5 times/week…mixing it up but…finding what works for me!**
Give Yoga another try! I’ve tried it a few times and it was relaxing but, I would rather be doing cardio but I also know yoga is good for the mind/spirit so…**I promise to give it a fair try again :) **
Strength training! I need to get on a better routine with this! My gym offers small group training (no more than 6 ppl) so, I think this will be good for me as I like the challenge of keeping up with others…it gives me that extra push!
**I promise to ST at least 3 times a week**…I know those toned muscles are under there somewhere!
I promise to try my best to get 7/8 hours sleep every night.
I promise to drink a lot of water
8. I promise to NOT sweat the small stuff…Life is too short to worry about trivial things!
9. I promise to trust in God that He will be there guiding me along the right path…I just need to really listen to stay on track.
10. AND…I promise if/when I go off track…that I will pick myself back up and TRY try TRY again!
Love, smile and laugh alot! Cherish family and friends...and tell them often they are loved! ...I have many other job and family related hopes for 2013… and Hopeful thinking is good…it can get us out of our fear zone and into our appreciation zone.
Wishing you all many blessings and much happiness and good health in 2013!
