So remember my post
on goals for the year? Well I said I wouldn't bore you with the details but I've changed my mind.
I recently came across this blog
, The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans and they are currently having a weight loss challenge. Since one of my goals is to lose weight, I figured why not join up with like minded folks.
My weight has been a big point of frustration and obsession for me for years. I have lost and regained weight and am constantly battling the proverbial bulge.
I know what to do to lose the weight but my lack of focus, commitment (to exercise) issues coupled with a serious love for all foods rich have seriously impeded my efforts to attain the body of my dreams.
Since moving to Abu Dhabi I can't use the "no time or money for gym" excuses anymore. I get home from work with enough time to have a second career and I have not only a gym but a pool in my building. I really have NO valid excuse to not become fit and fab.
I also got a wake up call when I stepped on the scale and saw that I am at my heaviest weight since freshman year of college. I am in the obese range for my height and age. Things cannot continue this way.
This year I turn thirty and I don't want to head into my thirties with this baggage of an unhealthy lifestyle.
So here is my goal for the next 8 weeks. It is much easier to break down a big goal into smaller goals, that way it is more attainable and the chances of succeeding increase. I am listing my action plan because you can't have a goal without knowing how you will go about getting it done.
Oh and I am writing it on that lovely template I linked in the previous post, and sticking it to my inspiration board along with some inspirational words and photos as a visual reminder of what I am working towards.
Goal: I will lose 10 pounds in 8 weeks.
- Track my points daily on Weight Watchers.com
- Gym 4x a week
- Drink 8 glasses of water daily
- Eat 6-7 servings of fruits and veggies daily
If you want to participate, head over to the Sisterhood and follow along with the challenge. I will try to keep you posted weekly about my progress.
