Reaching Your Goal Weight

When setting a goal weight the, you want to make sure that it is realistic. If the goal weight is so far reaching or unrealistic, you will probably give up or become disheartened easily. On the other hand, when you set a weight goal that is not only realistic but attainable, you can achieve it.

One step in reaching your goal weight is weighing and measuring yourself. I know with women, we do not always lose weight, but if you measure yourself you will probably be surprised to find you have lost inches. Choose a day like weigh in Wednesday and try to weigh in at the same time (remember you are lightest in the morning).

Stick to your guns! If you want to work out five days a week, work out five days a week. Make time for reaching your goal.

Remember working out is great, but you also need to be eating well. Your body is going to run as well as the food you are consuming. You wouldn’t feel your premium car with the lowest grade of fuel.

Finally, remember you are human. Cheat days are a thing, a great thing. But not everyday can be a cheat day.

Starting the Year: Getting into shape

Today is the second day of my fitness plan. Confession, I started the day off really well with an Herbalife protein shake with tea and worked out, then we (hubby and I) ordered pizza. It was delicious and after we both swore no more cheating (no more cheat meals). When we go grocery shopping it will be for the essentials (milk, eggs..) and healthy foods (vegetables, fruits, and proteins).

The take home message I got from this experience is that there are going to be times of weakness (cheat meals), but the more we try and make the change, the less we will crave junk food and want to eat cleaner. So with our efforts renowned, we are going to do better and eat better. I also am feeling guilty so I think I am going to try to exercise again. I am trying to keep in mind that what I do today will affect how I look and feel in a couple days, months, and years.

 

Love!
