RhiaWolfe Posted September 11, 2017 Report Share Posted September 11, 2017 Hey everyone. So, I've been pretty bummed out about my progress, or lack thereof. Recently I've started a challenge strong, then something happens and complete derails me. It's frustrating. I'M GOING TO GET BACK INTO THE GAME DAMNIT!!! I need to do better. Albeit, I'm still doing a lot better than I was a year ago. What I've been doing hasn't been working. I'm starting over from square 1. I'm making super simple goals and going to build on them as things move forward. I'm in this for the long haul, not the immediate. I need to keep in mind what my goals are and remind myself why I want to accomplish them. I need to find my determination again. This time I'm going for the Lord of the Rings theme. Frodo started off as a simple hobbit, lazing around, eating all the time... but by the end he went through so much and became a much stronger hobbit in the end. That's my goal! Progress! Goals for the end of 2017: Here is an update on my progress towards my 2017 goals: Spoiler Finish 2 more classes towards my MBA degree I am currently taking a class called Ethics and Law in Business. I'm making progress towards this goal. Have a firm habit established of working out at least 3 times a week I have not made progress towards this goal. I am at the point that I am not going to the gym at all and just focusing on food. Have a firm habit established of meal planning I'm still doing pretty good on working towards this one. Most of my variances take place on the weekends. The meal planning works for during the week. Try 7 new healthy recipes I actually tried a new healthy recipe last night and it was amazing! That's 1/7. It's progress. Eat at least 1 vegetables daily I am incorporating more vegetables into my diet, but I'm not quite there. I am making improvements on this one though. Get at least 10,000 steps in daily I started off strong in the last challenge, but that quickly derailed. I'm going to try again to do the 7,000 steps again this challenge. Lose 1 pants size Not making good progress. Need to turn this around. I think I've gained a few pounds back. Can't let this continue! Wake up early enough as to not have to rush to get to work on time I've actually managed several times to wake up at a reasonable time to get ready for work. It's inconsistent though. I'll keep working on it! Some of them I'm going in the right direction, some of them I am not. I'm going to work harder to improve this challenge. Goals for this Challenge: Goal 1: Say no to second breakfast: No more than 2 variances per week I'm going for this one again. I didn't succeed last time. I have to learn how to say 'no' to second breakfast! This is the most important goal for me this challenge. I can't outrun my fork. I HAVE to get back on track with eating healthy. I've already meal prepped for this week, so I'm starting off strong! Goal 2: Battle the Nazgul: Work out 3 times per week Ok, last challenge this fell through. This is going to be the same as before. I still kept looking at it as 'going to the gym' for working out. This time I'm really going to focus on the 30 minutes of working out. I think part of the problem is my trainer keeps putting me on work outs that take an hour and a half just to do the weight lifting... then he wants me to do 30 minutes of cardio. This is for 3 days/week. I don't want to work out 2 hours a day, 4 days a week right now. That's too much for me to handle, especially while I'm in school. I'm going to have to just do my own thing I think. In October, I'm going to cancel my trainer sessions. I don't think it's worth the money for me anymore. I think I've learned enough on my own for me to take that next step in controlling my own workouts. I would LOVE input from everyone on workouts to do. I'm wanting to lose weight and get healthy. I'm not looking to become a power lifter (at least not right now). I want to get more energy, lose weight, and live a healthier life! Thoughts? Goal 3: Walk to Mordor: get at least 7,000 steps a day 4 times per week Time to get moving again! Gotta get those steps in to throw the ring into mount doom! I didn't do well on this last challenge, so this challenge I'm going to try and make it a little easier. My goal is to do 7,000 steps 4x/week. Let's see if I can manage that. If I can, I'll bump it up to 5x per week. It's about improvement! Goal 3: Fellowship of the RhiaWolfe: Check in at least 4x/week Even with my busy schedule, I need to check in with you guys and my accountabilibuddies at least 4x per week. I need support. I need to talk to you guys. Keep me honest, guys! 8 Quote Heroine of Time Height: 5'8 Weight: 272 lbs Current Challenge: RhiaWolfe Respawns Previous Challenges: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26 "Reach for the stars!
