I’m definitely a now kinda gal, if I want something I want it now & I’m not very patient. So it’s unsurprising that I’m struggling with motivation after my weight loss has plateaued.To give myself a bit of a boost I’ve decided to write down some of my goals, three that I want to achieve within the next four weeks plus another two more long term which should give me something to focus on other than just weight loss!
#1 To swap to green tea
I have the best intentions with green tea but just never stick to it. To be honest I just don’t really like the taste but I LOVE my usual cuppa so this is going to be a hard one for me. I really want to do it as there are so many benefits such as boosting your metabolism & fat burning, plus all the antioxidants so I’m going to try & increase the green tea whilst reducing my normal tea over the next four weeks & hopefully it’ll be easier than just going cold turkey!
#2 Be able to run 2K in one session
Ok I know for a lot of people this doesn’t sound like much but I really struggle with any kind of distance running. I’m more of a sprint runner, when I’m on treadmill I run flat out for a couple of minutes then walk for a couple of minutes so I’m aiming to run at a steady pace consistently for 2K then building up to 5K.
#3 Increase my strength training
I’ve started lifting small weights (currently using 5kg) recently rather than just being a cardio bunny but I want to graduate to the ‘big boys area’, no not that area! The area tucked away at the back of the gym where the scary squat rack lives. I want to build up enough confidence in the next four weeks to venture down there, eventually making it a regular part of my work out. You could even think about getting a personal trainer to help you with your workouts. For example personal trainer Singapore helps you achieve your fitness goals and live a healthier lifestyle.
#4 Change my eating habits
I’ve always had a bit of a love/hate relationship with food, which I’ll go into in more detail in another post, but I’m a complete chocoholic. If there’s a big bar of chocolate or a multipack I will end up eating the lot in one go, feel guilty & disgusting, then skip a meal. Not healthy at all, for body or mind. I’m starting to eat healthier on a day to day basis but still have the odd ‘binge’ day which I really want to change.
#5 Build my self-confidence
This is both self-confidence in the way I look but also in the way I act. My body has changed drastically after Baby #2 and a lot of my clothes are too tight. I have days where I can’t bear to anything other than leggings & t-shirt as I hate the way everything looks on me. This needs to change BADLY, and is changing slowly. The more I work out the better I feel, I’m getting to the stage where I can wear some of the clothes hanging in my wardrobe but its not going to happen overnight. This may sound a bit self-obsessed but I really want a body to be proud of. I want to do it for me, to look like I work out as I think it looks fab!
What are your goals? Do you have specific targets or are some more general like mine?
