Okay, so I'm going to start with the have you ever part... Have you ever realized how reliant that you get on other things to give you feedback? The laptop computer that my Spark Activity Tracker and FitBit are connected to is basically dying. So I have not had access to my activity trackers because they can't sync if the computer isn't on. I told my husband this morning that we are moving them tonight because I can't take it. I feel like it is pointless for me to walk if I'm not getting "credit" for it which is ridiculous because my body knows the difference. The things you realize, right?
After some research, this is what I have decided for my 100 Day No Excuses Challenge: It will go from March 1, 2014 to June 9, 2014. My goal is to lose between 14 and 28 pounds. Notice I am sticking to a 1 to 2 pound loss per week. Focus on eating less processed foods/eating cleaner. Working out 15 minutes per day, at least, 5 days per week. I will shoot to have an "active" rest for the other two days of the week. I want to hit at least one workout class per week and incorporate some stength training in there. Also, I want to find a healthy way to deal with my emotions instead of letting my mood eat my food. I have not decided whether I will follow the PointsPlus or Simply Filling plan yet, but I will be sticking with one of the WW plans.
Here's the kicker, March is my birthday month. To that end, I am not going to make excuses, but will allow myself to be human. I can have a "splurge", whether it be a piece of cake or milkshake, a burger or whatever, but if I can focus on the above for most of the time, I think my goals are absolutely attainable.
What do I hope to accomplish by this? I am hoping that I can form some healthier habits and kickstart myself back in the right direction. I am sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. I weigh in tonight so I should be able to post a "Starting Weight" after tonight.
UPDATE: Starting Weight is: 189.2. Goal by the end of this challenge is to be between 175.2 and 161.2.
