It’s time to share my New Year’s Resolutions for 2009. I have been going over my weight loss and fitness goals for 2009 the past few days and would like to share.
I would like to lose 50 lbs this year. My short term goal for that would be to lose at least 4 lbs every month which is the healthy way to go. I had lost over 80 lbs since 2005 when I first started my new lifestyle but gained back 30+ pounds. Yesterday I posted about my recent weight loss struggles.
I’m not going to dwell on the past. It’s a NEW YEAR and I’m ready to go.
My plan is to hit the gym on T/W/Th/Sa/Su with my wonderful hubby. Madelyn Fernstrom from ivillage health says you should have a ‘diet buddy’ and I agree. The support I get from Kev when we are on the Elliptical and in Spin class keeps me going. He always pushes me to do better and says kind words along the way. Everyone should find a ‘diet buddy’.
Sa/Su- Spin class and weights
Monday and Friday will be a rest and recover day off from the gym but I will do some form of activity whether it be in-home workouts, Stability Ball work, etc.
I will keep track of my water intake and I’m pretty sure I’m going back to keeping a food journal. I may skip counting calories in the beginning to see if I can manage with just staying accountable to what I eat.
I will weigh in every Monday and post my results on Wednesday.
I will take measurements and photo updates every month and post those to the blog.
A few other goals I have for myself are to follow a few online challenges, sell or donate my ‘big’ clothes that are taking space in my closet and I would like to fit into a few pairs of pants/jeans and tank tops that are waiting for me!
I’m keeping this short because I don’t want to overwhelm myself at the beginning.
