I kicked off the first day of my third twelve weeks at Doctors Wellness Center today.
Some of my overall goals for this 12 weeks include:
- Losing weight (my personal goal is 20 lbs.)
- Managing my time better
- Trying new food
- Advocating to others (on health/weight loss)
For the next week, my four goals are:
- To move and stretch every day, even try the elliptical again for five minutes (be sure to ice heel afterwards)
- Drink 60-80 oz. of water per day
- Find a new recipe to share
- Make a new green drink
I started the day off well with a 180.4 weigh-in. Less than a pound away from the 170s and less than two pounds from officially hitting the 50 lbs. lost milestone.
Also, I tried something new on the bike this a.m. Instead of riding “manual,” I did a 30-minute program, the weight loss program. It changes resistance as needed to keep the heartbeat at a certain level. I wasn’t sure I could do it, but I did. I was really sweaty, but made it through without hurting anything!
Finally, a very nice treat today. A friend who has been following my progress online brought me a bag full of clothes: pants, skirts and tops. She recently had a baby and has now lost the baby weight and had these clothes she wanted to share. Such a nice gesture, and the clothes are great.
I’m really excited about the next 12 weeks! Stay tuned…
