*Constantly change up your work outs up
*Train for an event
*Try new foods
*learn to cook different meals
*bring a friend along on the journey
*Track your progress
*Shoot for a goal
And here is how I am trying to accomplish those things….
*I rotate my work out videos so that I do each one once a week. However I do run on the treadmill every night (well except for rest days)
*I’m training for the thanksgiving day road race, which since I’m running that with people who assume I’m the pro-runner I feel like I really need to work hard to do good at this (no pressure right)
*It’s hard to try new food cause I don’t do a lot of cooking with my work schedule, but on the nights I do cook it’s all about trying to be healthy and open to different things (if only my other family members were excited about this too…hee hee)
*Most people look up to me for answers on weight loss so staying on track should be easy just cause I don’t want to disappoint people…however I also enjoy knowing that my other co-workers and some friends are trying to get back on track together so we can all help each other and not feel so alone
*I started a new weight loss journal when I track everything from my feelings to food to workout info….plus I get to share some of that stuff on here
* My number one goal is to finally hit my goal weight of 160….but my current goal is 10lbs….we’ll see how close I am to that on way in day!
So it seems I have some sort of a start in terms of getting on track. I have taken steps in the right direction and I am setting the ground work for long term change. This makes me happy.
