I realized today that I have been in the 280s since April. This is not acceptible.
The only reason I haven't lost weight like I used to is I lost the focus I used to have. When I started this year I wasn't going to make a new year's resolution to lose weight because it always seems like resolutions lose their steam by February.
Plainly speaking, I got lazy - I lost my drive. I lost my longing. I began to coast, and I have no one to blame but myself for losing progressively less and less until I actually gained weight during the course of a month.
So no more. I'm going to renew my focus - I'm going to renew my passion and my longing for a better, healthier body. No more am I going to ride the wave like a twig helplessly floating along wherever the mighty river decides to take it.
No, from this day forward *I* am the river.
Toward this goal I bought my very first Tae Bo tape. I may be rhymically challenged, but I'm not going to let that stop me. Nothing is going to stop me. I know how to make this thing work, I've done it time and again in the past.
So here's my goals from here on in. I'm going to walk 5 days a week, at least 30 mins. I'm going to alternate Tae Bo and Pilates six days a week. Tonight was Tae Bo, tomorrow is Pilates, etc.
I'm going to get my water in, 100 oz a day. After the Tae Bo this shouldn't be a problem - I killed a half a bottle in one gulp.
I'm going to get no less than 1800 and no more than 2000 calories a day. With the extra work, I'm going to fuel my body. Again no more than 30% of that will be fat, and I'm going to get my sodium back under control at no more than 3000 grams. And the calcium will be no less than 1100mg a day.
I'm a woman on a mission. Nothing will stop me. Most especially ME.
I've got a Las Vegas trip in August that I had planned to treat myself for reaching the 100lb weight loss. Not only that but I have a vow renewal next year on my anniversary, and I'm going to be goal weight. Life is not going to wait for me to get off my tuckus - and I'm tired of feeling so discouraged that I'm not seeing the success I used to. It's only because I'm not doing what I used to.
And that changes. Today.
DAILY AFFIRMATION: I won't let me get in the way of my goals anymore. Today is a new day, I'm not who I was yesterday, nor am I half of the success I'm going to be tomorrow.
