Good timing! I've recently relaunched a 'lifestyle change' and am actually still in the process of 'expanding' - I plan to start working out at Curves next week (or the week after depending on how settled we are at the new place). So finding this challenge that starts next week is excellent. I just had to grab this chance.
Ok, I know it's not summer here, we're just beginning winter, but tell me this, what is the best time to embark on a slimming mission so that when summer comes you're all ready and feeling great? You got that right, winter. So, yes, summer slimmin' - in winter - for summer!
Over at the right there's a 'Taking Part in Summer Slimmin' badge. I had to choose this one because it is a summation of all the others. I want to take on all of those goals and rock them!
I intend to stay on my food plan ala Weigh-Less, hence there's no question that all my meals must be prepared by myself at home - ok, that also includes mixing yogurt with cereal.
Goal # 2
My plan consists of a large variety of fruits and vegetables, all in large quantities too, so another one fo my goals is to ensure my 5+ a day is covered.
Goal # 3
I like to move it move it. I do. Or maybe I like how it makes me feel. And of course the benefits. I'm joining Curves and aim to work out at least 3 times there and at least twice on the treadmill at home each week.
I already drink a lot of water, but everyone knows that the colder it gets the less water one's interested in. So, another goal is to drink a minimum of 2 litres a day everyday, through the duration of the challenge.
Goal # 5
I will log each and everything that passes through my lips, on plan or off plan. And I will log all formal exercise, and some informal that I feel counts, e.g. long walks at the mall.
I'm not setting a goal for weight loss. It will be the sweet end result of all my effort with the goals above! I'm already excited to see how many lbs/kgs I'll have lost at the end of it all.
This time --- has to be the final time, no matter how long it takes. After trying my own way for years and not getting anywhere near my goal, I've decided it's time I sought help. And this is it...hope I inspire others to seek well-deserved help.
