I need to set a few goals for this month of NO weighing!!
I think that I should set a pretty high goal for the scale. I have NOT ONCE..Pushed myself to see what I am capable of.
I also don't want to set a goal that is SO HIGH that if I don't reach it that I am so disappointed.
There are some big changes being made this month.
For one I am starting my the disease modifying drug COPAXONE again...
It has been a while since I have been on it.
It does crazy thing to my body. It creates HUGE stress! I just don't know how I am going to react to that.
I have been on it before. It is a daily shot and one of the reasons I stoped taking it was because of the amount of stress I was under every day as a result of the shot.The medication is extremely painful. Not the shot but the med itself.It reacts different for everyone.
I have no idea if I will gain weight on the shots or not!
But for now..I am going to set a few goals.
My first having nothing to do with the scale.
The treadmill..It now sits in my living room...I need to be on that no less then 4 times a day. 12 minutes walks. It is 2 minute warm up 8 minute tread climb and 2 minute cool down.
Then I have a Kettle Bell. I have a DVD that I am going to watch first and then do the workout once a day. So I will be working out 7 days a week.
I will start this today. That is when I get up. I have not slept yet!
As far as food goes..I pretty much have that down. I have been eating a bit more bread then I would like which is weird because I am not a real big bread eater. It is 100% whole grain. But I need to cut it down to a few times a week. I also need to cut my honey down to a few times a week. Other then that all is good!
Now for the scale..I have been really happy with how things have progressed. I have never forced myself to lose HUGE amounts..I wanted this to be a slow steady process so that I knew that it would be for good. I did not want to lose all the weight in 4 months and did not learn anything along the way.
But I have decided fatigue or not I am going to do my best to try and fight through it. That can sometimes be easier said then done and then I will be in bed for a week. I am going to be positive here and say that it is NOT going to happen!!!
So..In the end..I would like the scale to have averaged a 3 pound per week loss..I know it is asking a lot..I think I am capable of it. If I stay focused and do what I am suppose to do.
So these are my goals..
4 - 12 Minute walks on the treadmill- DAILY
Kettle Bell Workout- DAILY
12 Pound Loss
