Yesterday I took another step in my re-commitment to weight loss. I started a 90 day challenge called the Bikini Body Mommy Challenge. Check out the website or facebook page. I have thought about starting this challenge for a few weeks now, but have quickly become discouraged, as I have started this challenge before, but never completed it. My original plan was to start it when school started, but then I thought, why wait? Why not start it now, and get on a good schedule again BEFORE school starts? Then I can start school and be on a great schedule right away!
So I want to encourage you to stop putting off whatever it is that you could be doing to become a healthier version of yourself! Why wait? Don't look back 30 days from now and regret not starting today. Think of how far you could go in the next 30 days!
~ 80/20 healthy eating plan (whole healthy food 80% of the time, small indulgences 20% of the time)
~ Use My Fitness Pal to keep track of food, water, exercise, weight, and measurements (Username: amunson123)
~ Follow Bikini Body Mommy Challenge
~ Continue with gym membership
My SMART goal I made a few weeks ago:
I will lose 20 pounds by Christmas by working out 5 days a week for at least 30 minutes and keeping within my calorie limit and eating completely whole, nutritious foods at least 5 days a week.
SMART stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-bound. I would really encourage you to read more into exactly what SMART goals are, and make a SMART goal yourself! Maybe I will have to do a whole post on them myself!
Tips for starting your own weight loss journey:
1. Make goals ~ What do you want?
2. Plan ~ How are you going to get there?
3. Keep track ~ How are you doing on your goals? (pictures, weight, measurements)
4. Small steps ~ Take small steps as this is a lifestyle change, and you want it to last!
5. Accountability Partner ~ Who is going to keep you on track? Who can you go to for encouragement, motivation, or help?
