It’s December. It’s also the season of candy and big dinners. Yes, I know it’s really about Jesus, but you and I both know we’ll be eating lots of calories. 🙂 I’ve spent a majority of the past twenty years thinking about weight loss and purchasing workout programs hoping for one of them to push me off my couch and magically remove all this extra fat on my body.
Wishful thinking, dear!
It’s time to do the work that is necessary to get fit and live fit. The last program I purchased included a 21 day workout, as well as an eating plan. I love both, yet I can’t manage to get past day one. Why? Because I am a perfectionist! Day two comes along and I can’t exercise because of whatever reason and I messed up on my eating. So what happens on day three? I give up. I quit. I say I’m done.
Here’s my new game plan
In the month of December, I have 31 days to reach the following objectives:
21 days of workouts (or walks) – I will not quit if I skip a day. You see, I have a ten day buffer in there to allow me to skip a day a time or two and not get behind!
21 days of drinking water – My goal here is to start drinking water. Currently all I do is drink caffeinated carbonated drinks – yes, good ol’ sugary pop. So, I will guzzle down more water than any other beverage on 21 of the 31 days.
I’m not going to worry about calories this month. I’m not going to worry about perfect records this month although the temptation will arise, I’m sure of it.
I am going to tell you at the end of the month that I did reach my fit living goals for the month of December!
What are your goals this month? Leave a comment and I’ll cheer you along this month!
