This is a 10 week challenge and the idea is to pick one goal (or more) in these four categories:
NSV (Non-Scale Victory)
You can change your goals along the way and make sure it's customized to YOU! It gives me something to focus on which is how I work best. So, here goes!
*Weight Loss- This is the hardest for me. I know I shouldn't focus so much on a number. But, I really would be super excited if I could be 125 or 130. That would be smack in the center of a healthy BMI for me. So, I know it could only be a good thing If I were there. For now I'll strive for the 130. That's 10 lbs. 10 lbs for me is soooo difficult. I've tried and tried for a year now to do that. If I go down 5 I go up 5 like 2 days later....ahhhh...it's so hard!! So, this time I will get there dang it!!
*Non-scale Victory- I'm not worried about a certain size. I just want to look more toned. I would love to get rid of my flabbier areas :) I want my arms, legs & tummy to look toned so bad. So, I guess I'll go for that! I should take some before pics....but I tried that before and it's too scary. I'll think about it....
*Exercise- I want to exercise at least 5 times a week. I want to run more! Right now I can only get a run in on Friday or Saturday. I want a weekly goal of at least 10 miles per week. I don't want two long runs back to back, so I'm going to have to break it up somehow and get up super early 4:30 ish or figure something out for the other days..... I'm getting nervous just thinking about it, but I gotta figure out how to make it work. I also want to find another race to sign up for. That helps to keep me going. I will also continue to go to cross fit 3 times per week.
*Nutrition- I will get in 64 oz of water per day. I will eat 2 fruits and 2 veggies per day. My niece challenged me to go without desserts or candy. So, I will strive for that too. I can do this...I can do this!! I've tried to keep a food journal or track my calories, but never stick with it. I'll think about trying that. I definitely think it will help.
I'm excited for this challenge starting TODAY!! If you need something to keep you accountable you should join too! It would be fun to have some friends join me in someway of a challenge. I hope you'll follow along and keep me accountable.
My latest Mantra about bad foods that needs to be imprinted in my brain is, "I CAN have it, but I don't WANT it." I will keep saying this until I actually believe it.
Here we go!! Wish me luck ;)
