Another goal for 2014 is to get a handle on weight and fitness. This week I began working with "The Never Say Diet Personal Fitness Trainer" to go along with my reading of "Never Say Diet" both by Chantel Hobbs.
So here is a bite-sized look at the upcoming four weeks (including this one):
1- Go to the gym five days a week and do 30 minutes of cardio each day and three days of circuit training (I belong to Planet Fitness and they have a nice 30 minute circuit section for this).
2- Do not diet. Just be sure to eat breakfast each day. Don't worry. I will be worrying about food intake later. Too often I have tried to do it all at once and failed miserably. This time I am going to focus on one thing at a time. Consistency in working out and not skipping meals is my first step.
3- Starting January 14th - Begin Proverbs 31 Ministries Online Bible Study with "Made To Crave" by Lysa Terkeurst. I have already downloaded the book to my Kindle (I have the book floating around the house somewhere), I picked up a "Craving God" devotional (only $5 right now) at Family Christian Store, and last night I ordered the Made To Crave Journal and Conference Call Bundle. It is an investment, but worth it for me (and I did save quite a bit on the devotional). I have participated in the conference call portions of all the studies that I have been in, and it has been invaluable for me. I need all the extra support and motivation I can get.
4- Measure myself. BLECH. This is all a part of my goals. As much as I want to look at the scale constantly, I know that it will depress me. So I have promised to weigh in once a week and measure as well. The Never Say Diet Personal Fitness Trainer has a place for all of that so I am using it to keep me honest. :)
How are you working on your goals? Are you breaking them down? Do you have any fitness goals for this year? Any suggestions for how to stay committed?
