Albatross

Lately my weight has been bothering me quite a bit and now that school is basically done, it’s time to put my focus back on getting healthy and fit. I really want to get to a healthy weight and feel good in my body. I also am tired of being limited by my weight and my fitness level. So I’m ready to jump back in and make myself a priority. I have no illusion that this is going to be easy, but I won’t get anywhere if I don’t try.

Here’s what I need to focus on:

Tracking what I eat
Attending weekly meeting and weigh in
Drinking water
Morning yoga sessions
Being mindful of what I eat/drink – making healthy choices
Getting all my workouts in at the gym – and being present and focused during
Making my weekly 5k walk
Taking my daily vitamins and supplements
Taking care of my skin
Staying on track with all of this by journaling and/or blogging
Ok, that’s a lot. But, I can do a little bit at a time so that I don’t get overwhelmed. I just need to re-focus so that I’m not just going through the motions, and also I need to be consistent until it all becomes a normal part of my routine. I want this to be a lifestyle. I want to be able to live with any of the changes I make. I’m not dieting and I’m not doing this for the sole purpose of losing weight. I want this to be my life.
So, I’m going to check in weekly with myself and see how I’m doing. I thought it would be good to determine what I’m going to focus on this week and also give myself some weekly inspiration.
So, this week my focus is on drinking water. As hot as it is outside, being hydrated is especially important. I learned that the hard way this weekend. So, I think it’s a good place to start. I have a 32oz bottle of water sitting on my desk and I want to drink three of these a day. I’m going to focus on getting one down though.
And for my weekly inspiration: this gorgeous dress from Anthropologie.

I’ll check in next week to look at how I did.
