So, I have been drifting in the 150's for a while now...I would have to look at my weight bar to see how long.
Let's put it that way.
I know how to maintain.
I want to hit normal...BMI wise, (normal is not attainable for me as a person lol)
So, I have decided to devote my next 100 days to losing the next 15 lbs.
This starts tomorrow and Ends November 1rst.
The weight I want to hit by November 1rst, 140 lbs.
That would be at the tippy top of the upper end of 'normal' for me.
So what does this challenge entail.
It means no higher calorie days.
Rest days on Saturdays, but no rest from 1500 or under.
It means logging (on my blog) every piece of food or calorie I eat during the day.
It means if I come in at 1400, I don't carry an extra 100 over till the next day thinking I can eat that.
I post my exercise for the other six days, every day.
My deficit for the day is only good for that day.
so, If I was aiming for a 600 cal. deficit and end up with 800...it doesn't carry over.
(If you can't tell, I have been doing all sorts of mental tricks to excuse going over my calorie budget.)
I post my weight on Sunday (My first weigh in is tomorrow)
I drink 100 oz. of water a day.
I am excited about this.
More excited than I have been in a while.
Can't wait to begin.
For non weight loss related items.
I have discovered something recently.
Misery does not equate with intellect.
I used to think to be 'intelligent' one had to be skeptical, or even a pessimist.
I think that what I used to think is complete crap.
Anybody can be a pessimist.
Anybody can see the worst in every situation.
I choose to be an optimist.
I choose to see the best in people.
I also choose to talk to and treat everyone I meet with the respect they deserve as human beings and
I expect to be treated the same.
If I am talked down to or yelled at...I will call that person out on their behavior.
I will also be working on this concept with my kids.
I will choose to be grateful.
I will choose to be happy.
Does this mean I will never be sad?
It means that for the majority of life, I choose to be happy.
I choose to see the silver lining.
I am sure I will drive people insane.
better than being a miserable stick.
Optimists live longer anyways.
