In kicking off today's mission I am looking to the word judgement. This morning I sit here reflecting and judging myself, specifically my success over the past few weeks. Yes, I have made progress; but not at the pace I desire. In my reflection I believe that I can and should expect to achieve at my desired pace. The reasons I have not come from honest judgement of my actions.
In weighing the facts of my actions I honestly cannot find issue with exercise, I am getting that done. The bottom line is that my eating remain inconsistent. I write this at the risk of sounding like a broken KC and the Sunshine Band record; awful broken or not but terribly annoying to listen to broken as it skips the same line over and over.
It does no good to judge through the facts, and then not decide on a solution. And I have that, I stated it two weeks ago when the month started and I scripted how I will SEE November. In judging myself here I
Set for November if a goal to Weigh-In on Nov. 30th (a special Tuesday w/i for me) at 249.5 or less. My scale reads in tenths, but I record in 1/2 pound increments and I round the tenths up to the next 1/2, so 249.6 will not cut it, 249.5 it must be.
Establish a plan could be as easy as just doing what I have been, here is my plan...
No Fast Food, Candy, or similar food as poor in quality
- Exercise 5x week; 2x Cardio & 2x Strength & 1 Flexibility Workout (that will be new for me)
- Drink 2 liters, or more, of water a day
- Participate in #NovGTD, log my miles and tweet it up each day
Calorie intake will be no more that 2000 calories and carb controlled
- Avoid inducing fasting response, eat 6x a day; 3meals and 3 snacks
- Eat breakfast at home to avoid skipping it
Take fruit to work for snacks to avoid grabbing poor quality snacks at the office coffee shop
- Every other lunch at work will be a visit to the salad bar which is a treat since it is a good one
Plan out evening meals to avoid creating last minute high-calorie dinners of convenience
I do not need a new plan.
I do not need to reinvent how to get healthy.
I do need to execute the plan I have.
I do need to remember that I know how to do this and I believe that I can achieve my goals at I desire pace.
Today is day-1 of today's mission to be healthier...
What is your plan for today?
