Somehow, it’s that time again… Here we go!
October Goal Review
1.) Get back to my goal weight. Not so much. I have been having a really hard time with maintaining my weight lately, and am still up a few pounds from where I need/want to be.
2.) Join a gym. Check! I joined Washington Sports Club and am VERY happy with my decision to do so! I found a great discounted rate for GWU alumni, and I am able to go to any gym in the area. So far I’ve already used 3 different locations!
3.) With that, take at least one spin class. Check! I took not one, but TWO spin classes this month! I also tried Total Body Conditioning for the first time ever, and am looking forward to trying a few more this month. I looooved spinning and found it to be such a great, intense workout!
4.) Organize a reader/blogger get together. Check! This month was at Sweet Green, and it was so much fun! You can read all about it here in case you missed it.
5.) Make the most out of Weight Watchers Leader Training. Check! I absolutely loved going to BLS and am so excited about becoming a Leader for WW. I’m in the final stages of making that happen… I still need to conduct a meeting in front of my Leader Coach, and then another one in front of my Coach and Territory Manager. Once those are done, I should be good to go!
So with that, it is clear that getting my weight in check needs to be the focus of next month’s goals. My pants are feeling a little tight, I can notice the gain in photos, and we are just about to approach the holiday season which is normally a time for gaining for me anyways. I know what I need to do to get there, and it’s really just getting back to the basics. I need to get this in check before it gets out of hand!
1.) Workout 4-5 times a week throughout the month. I am going to continue using this spreadsheet to keep track of my workouts, and know this is an essential part of weight loss/maintenance for me. I’ve been slipping a little bit on this lately and tend to have a hard time when I’m not training for anything, so I need to make this a priority.
2.) Get back into morning workouts. I have been doing REALLY bad at working out in the mornings lately. It starts my day off on the right foot and helps me to make sure I get my workouts in even if I have a busy day/night ahead.
3.) Try a Body Pump class. I’ve always wanted to try one but never have!
4.) Track my food consistently Monday – Friday. This can be tough with traveling (seeing as I leave for almost a week tomorrow), but I need to try my best even when I’m away.
5.) Continue to meal plan weekly. I am much better about being on track when I have a plan in place for meals. It also helps me save a lot of money, and since I’ve been so busy lately this has gone to the back burner. I have to get back into it!
6.) Get back to my goal weight. All the mini goals above will feed into this one. I can do this!
7.) Get more sleep. I’ve been staying up wayyy too late watching Lost and putzing around on the computer. My goal is to try to be in bed before 11pm whenever possible!
8.) Have fun! The Foodbuzz Festival and Thanksgiving are two big things coming up later this month and I don’t want to let my weight goals get in the way of enjoying myself a bit. I know that I can still have a good time and balance that with healthy living – I just have to be mindful of it!
What was the highlight of your October?
This past weekend was definitely a highlight for me, as well as going to BLS to train to be a Leader for Weight Watchers!
