99.9 percent of American’s have a goal of wanting to lose weight in the new year. For me it’s an everyday goal for me.
Weight hasn’t always been a big issue for me. I’ve always felt like I was the girl that had the big boobs and the “big girl” of the group. It especially became an issue about 4 years ago when I listened to a friend and tried some weight loss pills. After about two weeks on the pills, I lost about 13 pounds, but I felt like I was on speed and my mind was going about 100,000 miles per hour. I stop taking them and the 13lbs and then some came right back. (NOTE: NEVER TAKE DIET PILLS. PERIOD)
This year I’m not saying that I’m going to lose 20 lbs and become a vegan — WRONG! I want to be able to lose a couple pounds, a few inches here and there, but most importantly get a better understanding what physical activities that I enjoy (where it doesn’t feel like I’m working out). My form when doing various workouts are horrible, so I want to get them better so I can get the most out of my workouts.
Another thing that I really desperately need to work on is my healthy eating. I’m such a foodie and I love food that has a lot of flavors and is plated beautifully. When it comes to trying new healthy foods, I’ll avoid it like a plague. I want to be able to experiment and substitute something unhealthy for something healthy.
So my goals to grow physically is to
- Learn what physical activities I enjoy
- Get better form while doing various workouts
- Substitute unhealthy foods for healthy foods.
So as you can see, these goals aren’t too out there. They are pretty simple. I feel that if I can stick with it then I will be onto something for years to come. Please share with me some of your favorite activities that you do.
