Yesterday at the end of my Zone 360 class I was approached by one of my coaches to talk about my progress and see if I needed any help. I’m still down only 10 pounds and should be more around 16 after 2 months. I said that I’ve had recent food temptations with family dinners and parties and did cheat more than I should and I also admitted that I should be taking more classes.
My coach suggested that I take some time to think about it and decide if I’m really committed or not.
After thinking about it I was really upset to where I wanted to cry. I had just completed a class that was really tough but got through it, I have changed many things in my diet and I’ve come so far from where I was. How could I possibly do even more than I already am?
Then I got angry.
How can anyone put a pound on how much I should be at? This has been a big life change for me and I’m not doing enough? I’ve struggled so much with pain, planning and monitoring my food, and getting myself to the gym. I’ve had 34 years of bad habits and you expect me be perfect?
At that point I came to my senses and realized that I’m not doing this for anyone but me. If I am dedicated to getting healthy through fitness and diet then I need to re-commit myself to what I wanted when this began.
“Commit: to pledge (oneself) to a position on an issue or question;express (one’s intention, feeling, etc.)” It’s time for me to fully commit myself to reach my goals and I hope you’re all still with me…
So here is my plan to hold myself accountable:
Total weight loss: 10 lbs
# of days to commit to working out: 4
Incorporating more fruits and veggies into my diet. Eating less carbohydrates and more proteins.
Here we go….
