So begins the re-starting of my “Getting Healthy Again” regime. So, here are some of the goals I will be working on:
- No more sodas.
(I will add a stipulation. If we ‘eat out’ – which I don’t plan on it anytime soon – or at a family event, most I will drink is light colored soda. But I will do my best to be good and just keep asking for water.)
- Go the Gym 3x a week.
(I am aiming for Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday. For some reason, it felt odd to try to start yesterday, so it will be from today on.)
- Figure out Recipes for Smoothies and Shakes that I will enjoy and won’t break the bank.
(Some of my favorites so far is my Slim Fast with Soy Milk and Bananas. I also enjoy Carrots and Bananas. So things like that.)
- Decide which type of routine I really want to go for.
- EAT OUT SO MUCH LESS.
(This is an overall goal for us because of $. So to add another reason for health will help. Except Wednesday Night when I have 2 seminars. Either my husband will cook dinner before I get home or we have to do the dash because I won’t have time otherwise and by the time I’ll be done, it will be very late at night.)
- Make the best use of ALL my resources
(Luckily, I have a job and a boss cool enough to let me use the equipment if I want to. I’ll probably do leg curls here, and work on abs and arms at the gym.)
- Drink more tea!
- Try to not make excuses BUT also allow my self allowances.
(If I stress myself too much because I let a day slip, that makes things worse. Focus on the positives and the good progress I am making rather than seeing all of the negative/all things I haven’t done. This isn’t a sprint, it is a marathon.)
If I think of more things, I’ll let you know. I started my water and tea this morning! And …
I may look tired, but that is how I am every morning. *laughs* But look, good habits! Starting them now, working on it now, and focus… And as I type this, I am sipping on Water so that is a good start.
Pretty soon, (hopefully sometime today) I will work/figure out some sort of routine that I am wanting to do. And figure out what I am going to pack/get myself ready for tomorrow. Gym Bag needs restocking!
And a playlist. I need to put music on my phone.
It’s the small things that keep us motivated, right?
