I stopped making resolutions a long time ago because I just never accomplish them. Writing down realistic goals seem to work out better for me. I didn’t wait to start my health and fitness journey on January 1st because that was just more excuses to not start taking control of my life at the very moment I talked it into existence. November 26th, on a hike with a company called Hike 4 Life, is when I finally said, “ENOUGH EXCUSES”. After that hike I made a promise to:
- Eat better
- Daily exercise
- Lose weight
4 weeks later, 12 lbs down, those goals are still the same but with some expansion.
- Eat better: I will continue to increase my daily fruit and vegetable intake; Decrease my sugar intake; Decrease any intake of processed foods; and cook more
- Daily exercise: 60 minutes of physical activity a day – Running, walking, and all other kinds of fitness activities.
- Lose weight: My ideal weight is 175 lbs. My plan is to lose 2 lbs a week until I reach that. 29 more pounds to go.
- Build strength
- Run a 5k with in April with my sister friend Michelle! (WOOT WOOT)
NO MORE EXCUSES!
