****My apologies for posting this late, but my computer was being used over the weekend.**
I decided to join the Hot 100 Challenge over at Log My Loss. I did this last year and it was pretty successful. Having just finished my commitment to reading The Beck Diet Solution this is good timing.
The purpose of the Hot 100 Challenge is to set goals that will help you stay strong and even achieve some excellence in your health the last 100 days of the year. Below are my goals and I will be updating how I did on them each week with my weigh-in on Fridays.
WEIGHT GOAL: Lose 0.5 – 1.5 lbs a week. I will only weigh on Fridays.
- Exercise four days a week, no skimping down to three during the holidays. 🙂
- Be able to jog at 4.8 mph for 25 minutes. This gives me time for slight warm up and cool down on the treadmill that has a 30-minute limit at the gym.
- Drink at least 64 oz of water daily. This is hard for me to do as the weather cools.
- Journal all my eats and drinks and stay within my calorie goals daily, with the exception of one high-calorie day that I allow to throw things off a bit. (Think flex points if you’ve ever done Weight Watchers.)
EMOTIONAL GOAL: Focus on one or two thoughts from the book The Beck Diet Solution each week. I will focus on concepts that were harder for me to grasp in one day, and even repeat concepts over the weeks if I need to.
HOLIDAY GOAL: Only one or two “foo-foo” coffee drinks from Starbucks the week I am visiting my mom in November. I will stick to regular coffee and cream the rest of the weeks.
I will also commit to visiting one new blog from the Hot 100 challenge each week to encourage them. (Thanks to Lori for this idea, I thought it was great and copied her. [grin] )
So, though I was late in getting this post out, I will tell you that I have already been following my goals since Saturday.
To those that stopped by my blog on Friday and Saturday to check on my goals, thank you so much! You’re already an inspiration and great encouragement.
Have a great week everyone!
Sounds like a great challenge! I know you will do great. You are on a roll, girl!
Welcome to the challenge, Leah! Glad you decided to participate. I like the variety of your goals.
Leah, it's better late than never, right? I never doubted you! All the goals look great! You can do it!
I've been working on my post for later this week to say how I did on my goals. Is it just me or did the first week fly by?
