Give yourself the best gift Week 6.

I'm not going to bother with copying and chatting about each of my actions points this week. Really, I did the best I could given the circumstances. Yesterday I blogged about what I could do this week, if anything. I was going to give up and take a break. It's been a really stressful week and I didn't do as well as I could have, or that I should have anyways. My plan yesterday was to just take a break, for who knows how long and come back to blogging/calorie counting/working out when I had less stuff on my plate. I woke up this morning with a new perspective. I'm going to put more focus on me, eating, working out, ect and just let the other stuff be the unimportant stuff to go. I've lost 19 lbs and I haven't been trying my hardest. So now I will. i'm going to refocus and give 100% this time, and not 65% or whatever it was that I WAS doing.  So since it's the end of October, I am going to go a head and talk about my goals for this upcoming week and month and just let this last week go.

  • I will set a new goal, either a scale goal, or an NSV for every month. - For Novembers Goal, I have a few things I want to do. I want to make sure I drink 2L of water every day. I don't want to weigh myself for the whole month. I want to make sure I eat breakfast every day. their all sort of mini-goals so  something to work on this month for sure. 
  • I will workout. I won't depend on diet alone for weight loss. I will work out 3 days a week, whether it's 30 minutes, or 2 hours. I will commit to 3 designated work outs a week. - Since this isn't a possibility for the foreseeable future, I'm going to just wake up and stretch every day, and try and take a short walk 3 times a week (given it doesn't snow lol) Since I am already feeling a little better, just battered and bruised, I think I'll be back to running next week, but since I took this week off I think I'm going to re-do Week 3 and carry on from there since I basically have taken 2 weeks off. 
  • I will try something new once a week. Food, recipe, activity, whatever. - Since my body is sore, my "new" thing is going to be aquasize. It's not really new since I used to go to a different pool all the time, but it's a new pool with new people that I've never been to before so as long as Adrian is home on time on Tuesday I'll ask him to take me. If that's not possible then by the end of the week I'll try the Yoga that I had planned on last week if my back is a little bit better.
While this hasn't been my best week, or weekend I'm glad I'm not giving up and I'm glad it gave me the opportunity to re prioritize and figure out where i really need to be putting more of my energy instead of stewing in my own misery. 


  1. Hopefully your life settles down so that you can devote the energy you need to your weight loss and health efforts. You have good goals.

  2. You're awesome Sabrina! There isn't many people that would be thinking about exercise with a sore back! Keep it up!

  3. You're doing great staying motivated! Aquasize is probably your safest workout to do while sore. hope you heal up sooN!

  4. Glad you are staying with it. Like your goals. They seem realistic. Stay strong. Life throws many curve balls.

  5. Thanks guys! You help to keep things in perspective!
