Inspire Me: Healthy!

Hey y'all! Happy freakin Thursday!

I've been so busy this week but, in a good way.  I've been getting dinner cooked at home, wedding stuff checked off of our list, workouts in (mostly) & even made it to a meeting 30 minutes early!

Who am I!?

Just kidding... I've made it a point to get all of this done!  (Except the meeting thing... that was a mis-type in my planner so we ended up being early! HA!)

Anyways, today I'm linking up with Kristen & Raven for Inspire Me: Healthy to talk about my "health journey", if you want to call it that.
A Mommas Desires And Pacifiers

I talked Monday about my daily & weekly plan to get back on track with my weight loss & fitness.  Today I want to talk about my goals.  I'm a believer in goals & that if you know you want something bad enough, you'll work as hard as you need to to get there.

I've talked about my weight loss & fitness journey here before.  I've tried multiple different things to keep myself on track & it seems no matter what, every few months I fall off track!  It's very frustrating.  So, I'm trying to figure out what works best for me in my life & my schedule.

So, here's my goals...

#1  Track my meals via My Fitness Pal, daily.  This is something fairly easy & I can take it with my anywhere I go since I have the app on my phone.  & FYI it's a FREE app for anyone else looking!

#2  Cardio - get cardio in 4-5 times a week.  Whether it's on the machines at the gym, spin class, riding bikes or running outside... I just need to get my heart pumping!

#3  Toning work outs - 4-5 times a week.  Y'all have heard me mention Tone It Up here before & I semi participated in their Summer 2012 Bikini Challenge this year - I'll admit, I fell off the wagon & lost motivation.  However, they have some GREAT toning workouts!  This month I finally printed off their calendar & it's on the front of my "wedding binder" so I see it everyday & always know what workouts are coming up!  I also have one saved to my desk top at work so if I don't have my binder, it's a quick click & I will know what the workouts for the day are.  I then either do them at home or at the gym before cardio.

#4  Eat smart.  This is pretty self explanatory & where meal planning comes in!  I'm not going to kill myself if I slip up or have a sweet tooth craving.  I'll simply handle the bump in the road & get back on track with the next meal.  Same thing I did yesterday after having McDonald's for lunch.  I could barely get it all down & then having to put it in My Fitness Pal - ugh!  Horribly depressing!  I won't be wasting that many calories again anytime soon!

I think these are all very simple & attainable long term goals.  Eventually, they won't have to be goals but, just a way of life & that's the ULTIMATE goal for me!

I think next week I'll be brave & share some before pics!  Maybe.
