It’s time for me to refocus. I am not starting over, restarting, or wiping the slate clean. I am just taking the time to refocus on why I am doing this, what my goals are both short and long term and remember what is at stake (my health).
Over recent weeks I have been doing pretty good. I had rejoined weight watchers, this time doing it online, and I had lost slow and steady for 3 weeks, starting with buckling down on Xmas Eve. I am currently using Mondays as my weigh in day and I expect to be up tomorrow. I have not had a good week. I have eaten a little too loose, and my activity is not where it should be.
In order for this to work for me personally, it has to be about lifestyle change. I don’t do moderation well in anything that I do. All or nothing. This attitude or approach has not served me well. I have not tracked 100 percent of my eating this last week, and that must change IMMEDIATELY. I have not remained accountable with posts on my blog or elsewhere, and quite simply I do better when I am accountable. Easy fix!
I am going to Vegas in October of this year with 14 guys for a 4 days “Everyone turns 40″ trip. I told one of my buddies tonight we should do a weight loss contest payable in Vegas. Weigh in next week at our superbowl party and then again the first week of October. Nice little incentive and motivation to get the work done. The more motivation the better, but in reality it has to come from within. All the quotes, videos and pictures, are great, and I do use them. But it has to come from inside if its going to be lasting change.
So tomorrow isn’t day 1, its nothing more than a refocus day. This week I will track and post my points on my blog all week. I will strive to drink my water, and I will keep moving everyday. I picked up a pedometer and I will strive to get 70,000 steps from tomorrow morning til Sunday night next week. Step by step I will get closer to good health.
