Here we go again..

>> September 20, 2010

As you may have noticed, after my first post about the Couch 2 5K… there was never another post about it. No, it’s not because I was trying to be modest, at my greatness. More like I did it for the first week {almost?} and then life got in the way, and I haven’t made it back to it. How sad is that?!

I’ve written about lack of motivation more than once on this blog, but somehow I just keep returning to that same idea. I was SO motivated when I first started to lose weight. I lost 50 pounds that’s a BIG  deal! But now that I have been able to keep it off {plus or minus a few pounds}… I feel like I actually like the way I look, overall.

However, as I typed that, just like every girl out there, was able to think of a few things that I wish were better about my body. So, I need to get back to that. I am constantly making to do lists and goals at work, and I create a map in my planner every week of my school assignments. Why don’t I go about my fitness, my health in the same manner?

I need to.

So this week, these are my goals. Let’s hope I don’t forget them as soon as they are published.

  • Drink Water! I was so good at this… until I got addicted to the Diet Coke with a Cherry shot from Chevron by my work. Oops! I should be drinking at least 64 oz per day.
  • Don’t eat out so much!! I am a victim of my own busy lifestyle. I get Jamba Juice breakfasts, Café Rio Lunches, and Sizzler Salad Dinners way too often. This is hurting my waistline {and my wallet!} I need to cut down to 2-3 times a week, which still sounds like A LOT but when I’ve ate out 5 times in the past 2 days…
  • 30-Day Shred. Hey, Jillian! Remember me? Yeah… it’s been awhile. I know, I know I’m sorry…. No more excuses, right? {This is my imaginary conversation with Jillian, I’m really not quite fat enough to go on the Biggest Loser, nor do I ever want to be!} My goal this week is to do this twice. I am so busy… but I should be able to fit that in. Right? Yes!
  • Last but not least. I want to incorporate some sort of general fitness goal each week. Let’s go for doing 20 sit-ups. That shouldn’t be hard, right? But since I never really got into the 100 sit-ups thing like I wanted, and I’ve never been a sit-ups aficionado... 20 is a good goal to start with. Yay!

Typically, I do too many goals. Goals that sound fabulous at the time, but that are then quickly forgotten, especially when there’s too many of them. So 4 sounds like a great number. Yay me.

What are your fitness goals this month?

Doing anything different now that Fall is here, and the Holidays are coming up?

Here's to new motivation. Next maybe I'll write goals to get rid of my flaaaabby arms.

I'm just trying to keep up with the house cleaning in my new place! That's enough for me!

50 lbs IS a LOT!!! So you have every reason to give yourself a break for a bit :) But now that you're ready to get back into ... kudos to you!!!

Have you ever worn a pedometer? I recently got one - I think it's helping me recognize how lazy I can be even when I think I'm "so busy" - not that you would do what I do ... but surprisingly I can be very busy and not move very much!! lol.

My fitness goals are to start working out for Fall too. I haven't worked out (besides the occasional once a month-er) for SIX MONTHS!!!! No kidding. IT's terrible. I've never tried the Jillian one - maybe I should. I was going to start YogaBootyBallet - but yeah - I guess I should DECIDE so that I can stop procrastinating!!! :)

Good luck!! I hope you post more about it!! It's very motivating :)
