I want to step up my goals however and add a few extra small goals on to my weight loss. I have already made a goal to drink more water. I have done this except for one week I slacked. This next month I plan on starting an ab/core workout, continuing to drink my water, cutting out sodas 100% and maybe tossing some basic yoga or stretching exercises into the mix. Ready for next month to start so I can stomp out another 10.
My birthday is July 12th and I do have the goal to be in the 180s by then. I don't care if it is just 189 (which I plan on it being a lower number than that) as long as I am in the 80 range. I am ready to be rocking 34 in a body I can be proud and confident to have.
So what have I changed this month?
- Drink my 8 glasses of 8 oz of water daily
- Switched white bread for wheat bread
- Cut back on non-lean meats
- Stopped drinking sodas a lot
- Cut down on butter intake
- I use ONLY mustard in place of mayo
- Salsa in place of dressings
- I educated myself with a food diary
These small things helped me a lot. I also started moving more even if it was just getting up walking around. I dance around for 30 mins each day to some really upbeat good mood music. I feel good making healthy choices. I have switched chocolate and candy bars for Lemonheads when I need sugar and granola bars. I also enjoy the 100 calorie snacks.
So here is to being healthier, happier and 10 lbs lighter!
