The sun has been out for the last couple weeks here in Michigan (well – minus the last 2 days!), it’s getting warmer, my treadmill was delivered last week, and I’m fed up.
It’s time to do something and with my husband setting his own workout goals for the next couple months, I’ve decided to join him. Plus, it makes it so much easier if we’re both on the same page! And after the crummy eating we’ve done the last week or so, the feeling sick is definitely enough to feel the kick in the behind.
I’ve printed out a goal list for each week, and marking what I do daily. I’m also focusing on health, not weight.
On my “do not eat list”
- refined sugar and flour
- no eating out
- no junk oils (corn, canola, soybean, etc)
- no coffee
- no grains (I’m wanting to be able to mark this one a few times a week – not everyday)
- no unsoaked grains (again – a few times a week, not everyday)
My ‘must eat” daily list:
- 3 tsp cod liver oil (going to be hard as I’m trying the oil and not the capsules *gulp*)
- 1 Tbsp coconut oil
- 1/2 cup yogurt
- 2 eggs
- a raw food with breakfast
- a raw food with lunch
- a raw food with dinner
- 2 quarts if water
I also have rows for the treadmill, weights, and aerobics.
By the end of 12 weeks I’d love to fit into my “thin” clothes (possible without having to go crazy), be able to run at least 2 miles at a time, and overall be in a healthier frame of mind.
What I’m not doing:
- Counting calories
- Eating low fat – cause you know…..I actually like my body.
- Weighing myself until the 12 weeks are up
Why do I tell the whole world? Cause now I’ll look like a dufus if I don’t do anything! Accountability folks, accountability.
So do you have goals for this spring? What are they, and how are you going to meet them?
Gonna join me?
