"Build the habits and the results will follow!" ~Jonathan Roche

I've been maintaining the weight for several years now, but have found myself feeling a little complacent recently. Until the last week or so, my weight hasn't changed, and my clothes continued to fit, so it's been hard to push myself.

After decades of struggling with my weight, I discovered SP, and lost almost 50 pounds. I've been maintaining the weight for several years now, but have found myself feeling a little complacent recently. Until the last week or so, my weight hasn't changed, and my clothes continued to fit, so it's been hard to push myself. But I'm feeling a little sluggish, my pants are a little tighter, and at my last doctor appointment, I was diagnosed with prediabetes. So now, with a new granddaughter to motivate me, I plan to take the very best care of myself. Starting tomorrow, I begin tracking my food and exercise again, so I can get myself in the best shape ever. Thin is not necessarily healthy!

April and a 1/2 GOYAAM Action Plan

Fitness
250 total fitness minutes per week, which will include at least 3 interval workouts per week.


Nutrition
-Recommit to drinking at least 9 glasses of water a day.
-Squeeze in veggies and fiber wherever I can.
-Dessert only once a week. (Still not consistent with this one.)

Focus
-Use my timer. Alternate active/still activities.
-Meditate at least 4 times a week, on the days I don't do yoga.
-Read from the Motivation Manifesto every night.

My Program:
Lifestyle Changes:

Personal Information:
I live in the middle of nowhere, in Central Illinois.

I teach junior high special education. It's quite a challenge and a big source of fuel for my emotional eating. However, it's incredibly rewarding, and the vacations aren't bad!!!
