Lifestyle Change – Overview – Week ONE

Between a hurt wrist and being sick last month, I didn’t get around to doing much of anything. Since I didn’t post my June Ipsy bag, I will combine it with my July bag. Now onto the good stuff!

I have been exercising off and on for a while. It wasn’t until last week, when I went browsing on Pinterest for some weight loss ideas, that I decided to keep a journal. Sure, it’s not pretty or very organized, but I’ve decided to do it! I wrote down my daily, weekly, monthly, and final goals. Below is a little more organized version of what I have in my journal. Each Monday, I will post the previous week’s logs.

  • Every MONDAY, I will complete a 20 minute work out, and do a walk.
  • Every TUESDAY & THURSDAY, I will work out for 30 minutes.
  • Every WEDNESDAY & FRIDAY, I will do my walks.
  • SATURDAY & SUNDAY are rest days. (Since my hubbie is off work and we usually run around)

  • I will drink at least FOUR(4) 16oz bottles of water a day.
  • Every hour of sitting, I will get up and do something active (ie: squats, leg stretches…)
  • I will be productive by either working, crocheting, or reading.
  • I will stay POSITIVE!

  • I want to lose weight to be healthier.
  • I will measure my success by how I feel.
  • My current goal is to lose 155LBS, walk FIVE(5) miles a day, and feel confident.
  • Each month, I want to lose 10LBS.
  • By April, my goal is to be at 200LBS or less.

I want to be healthier and feel confident. I plan to lose 155LBS by loosing 10LBS a month to reach my ultimate goal of 135LBS by October 2016.

I struggle with motivation because I become discouraged – I WILL FIGHT HARD!

  • Weight will fluctuate.
  • I do this for ME.
  • This is MY choice.

That is all I have for now! Thank you!!!
