Try Try Again
And that is why I am grateful that this is not skydiving. I was full of excitement and grand plans for the new year. Day after day I have come up with a new excuse for not really "starting." Here it is January 12 and I am taking another stab at it.
Last Thursday I signed up for a weight loss challenge at a local chiropractor's office. It is an 8 week Biggest Loser style contest. We will weigh in each week and the person with the highest percentage weight loss will get their entry fee money back. Then the three with the highest overall percentage lost at the end of the contest will win additional cash prizes. I admit, at this point, I am not thinking that I will be in competition for the overall winner. My goal is to get myself back on track, lose what I have gained over the last couple months and hopefully, at least win my entry fee back.
I have three major goals this week:
1. Prepare healthy dinners - I have been a bit of a slacker in this department. Not being prepared has lead to all kinds of unhealthy choices.
2. 10,000 steps each day - I have been playing with my Fitbit for a week or so and now it is time to make it earn its keep :)
3. Drink 100 oz. water each day - This might be a little more than I need, but I want to flush my system of all the junk I have been eating lately.
Anyone else out there struggling to get this new year off to a great start?
