I ventured back to WW this morning for the first time since January. Eeep. I went ahead and reset myself with today’s date and weight as my starting point. I honestly cannot tell you how many times I’ve started and re-started WW in the last 6 years. I am probably not the best endorsement for the program, but really, I believe WW works. The problem arises when I don’t work. I’m trying really hard to remedy that problem, for a myriad of reasons, including but not limited to:
1) Freewheel: We leave in 7 weeks (holy crap) for our week-long bike trek across the State of Oklahoma. I know I will have more fun and be able to ride longer and faster if I lose some weight between now and then. Must get it together. Oh, and get in some serious training rides!
2) Miami: I leave in 76 days (whoop!) for a 4-day girls trip to South Beach. I could not be more excited to get out-of-town and feel the sand beneath my feet. I think as we get older it is really important to have trips/events on the calendar so there are things to look forward to. When all I can see for my future is the same thing day in and day out, I get completely freaked.
3) Class Reunion: This is much farther off (a little more than a year), but makes for a great long-term goal. While Miss PoliSci, Miss Rose, Mrs. Bookworm and I are still debating our attendance, I want to be prepared to attend should we decide to do so. And I want to feel good about myself when I get there.
I’ve also been really inspired lately by my favorite contestant on this season of the Biggest Loser, Hannah. For whatever reason, I really relate to her and she has become such a rock star on the show. You can tell how much her personality has changed and how confident she feels now. I totally want that. So I am officially back on the wagon, where I’d really like to stay…for good.
In order to firm up my commitment and to gain some additional accountability, I decided to share my short-term goal here: 20 pounds before by Miami! I think it is totally doable, if I am consistent, which is always my biggest struggle.
What goals are you currently working on? How do you stay consistent in your eating/exercise plans?
