• One Trainer’s Weight Loss Journey – Day 16

    Short one tonight. The bed is beckoning me.

    Sticking to the goals was difficult again today. We drove to Calhoun for Bill’s shoulder check up.  Since I didn’t want to stop every 10 minutes I drank my water modestly.  Besides, I am one of those drivers that does not want to stop until I reach my destination.  Once we got back home there were lots of things had to be done.  One thing led to another when I noticed it was almost 9pm.  I still had not done a workout plus quite a ways to go with the water. By the time I finish my water and go to bed I will likely beat a trail to the bathroom all night. Again, because I have all of you as my accountability partners and I hate to let anyone down I sucked it up.  Away I went to the garage and got it done.  There is a real good possibility I will know I worked legs tonight.  I am staying up until I have met my water quota for the day too.



    While I was working out I started thinking about including my goals for the short and long term. Below is a list of my goals.

    Short term / Immediate goals

    • Drink at least 2/3 my body weight in ounces of water each day.
    • Drink an Arbonne protein shake for breakfast
    • Eat a clean, no starch dinner and no snacking on crackers, chips, sweets, etc.
    • Exercise every day at least 30 minutes, strength training 2-3 days each week
    • Get my weight under 200 by 6/15

    Long term goals

    • Get body fat to 18-20%
    • Get back into my size 4 clothes hanging in my closet
    • Be able to take my rings on and off
    • Build lean body mass

    Notice my end goal is not a certain weight. I truly don’t care what the scale says for my weight as long as I like what I see in the mirror, my clothes fit well, I have lean muscle mass with a healthy body fat percentage.  Right now I am watching the scale because it is very satisfying to watch the number drop.  There are a lot of pounds to come off before I stop watching the scale and the long term goals are within reach.
