“I feel that the most important step in any major accomplishment is setting a specific goal. This enables you to keep your mind focused on your goal and off the many obstacles that will arise when you’re striving to do your best.”-Kurt Thomas
After reading this, I have made a commitment and starting today, I am really (for real this time) going to try and stick to my 90 day challenge.
My first goal is a physical makeover to tone up and lower my body fat to 18% and lose 15 lbs. Many may say, “Jenn, you dont need to lose weight or worry.” However, my family has had a history of health challenges, and I would like to prevent these potential genetic challenges, in addition, get back to my normal weight. I love working out however, I recently have lacked motivation. My twitter ohana has been very helpful for encouraging me, but I know I have to take the initiative and do it myself! I have 3 weddings to attend to this year, and I would like to look my best. My 10 year reunion is coming up as well (in a couple of years) and I would like to look my best!
My second goal is to have a personal makeover. I want to be a better person, be more calm, patient, and when speaking, thinking about what I have to say prior to saying it. Speak positively and s-l-o-w-l-y. This will be challenging as well because it will take a conscious effort.
Day 1: Sunday, July 25, 2010
Today I ran 6 miles and it felt great. I started with a bowl of Special K cereal. However, there was a turn for the worst when I hit lunch and dinner. For lunch I had a slice of Ted’s chocolate haupia pie + for dinner, I had another slice of pie with a side of veggies and bread. I feel that this was my “last meal”. I know that my diet will be my hardest challenge. Due to my busy after-work schedule, this week I am going to the gym at 5AM and work out for an hour. Wish me luck!
