Making this month's goals a little more realistic. I was really excited about camping, and wanted to lose to make it into a smaller pair of pants I have, which is unrealistic, I fit those pants 30 pounds ago. Wishful thinking, I suppose. So here we go, my goals for June, a few days late:
Walk at least 10 minutes every day, 30 minutes at least 5 days a week. I walk not only to lose weight and get in shape, but for my mental health and daily walking, at least a little bit, is required. I won't miss a day unless there is just no way I can do it, like a migraine or I'm sick. 10 minutes is not much, and will be considered a rest day.
Arms Challenge, start TODAY then I can finish on the 4th of July. I want my arms strength back and I'm going to need it with the moving coming up!
Core Challenge, start TODAY, finish by the 4th of July. I was actually told by my doctor that I need more core strength, so this is an absolute to start now. I'm starting both challenges at the same time so I can maybe line up the days off. Again, I'm going to need the core strength for the move.
Thrive EVERY day. It makes me feel so much better! We are low on budget so I got to get enough of the shakes and the supplements to last but I will have to go about a week without the DFT patch and I'm rationing my Activate drink for days I really, really need it. I have almost enough to last till I can buy more, but not quite. I don't want to run out of the main stuff, but the Activate drink and the DFT patch help a lot too. I'm on ration mode until I can buy more next payday.
Cut the coffee. No coffee first thing in the morning. It messes with my Thrive and puts me out energy-wise for about an hour, till the coffee gets out of my system! Today I'm not going to use my Activate, so I'll have a cup of coffee this afternoon, but for the most part, I'm only going to have coffee as a treat. No more full sugar lattes, if I splurge on a latte, get the sugar free kind.
Aiming for 2 pounds a week. I'll be happy with anything really, I just want the weight to come off, no matter how slow. I'm starting this month at 257 so lets say my goal is 249. That would be awesome. But my end day for the challenges is July 4th, so I'll give myself till then to get there. Must remember that I'm starting 4 days late.
Try to get at least 4-6 hours of sleep a night. I prefer more. I've always been the type of person that needs my 8 hours of sleep, but the last 4 months of barely any sleep have taught me that I can adapt. I'm still trying to sleep more, but I'll make due with whatever I can get. As long as I don't go back to getting only 1-2 hours a night, I'll be okay.
Clean, declutter, donate, throw away. I don't have boxes yet, so I can't start packing the non-essentials like I want to, but I can at least declutter and donate and toss. This is important to do some every day, even if it is just a little. Though I'd like to do more than just a little a day.
Okay, time to get started on my day, a migraine waylaid me this morning, so I'm not getting started til 1:28 PM, yikes! But I have a whole list of things to get done this week and I'd like to start today.
If I think of any more goals I'll add them. I'm going to copy and paste this and keep it on hand to keep these thing on my mind, in my focus, and not lose sight again.
