Stepping Stones – Getting Going For Week 10


     Can you believe we are almost 1/5 of the way through 2012? This is week 10 of our 52 weeks. I am excited to say, even with the weight setback last week I am still on track according to the weight tracker. I hold to my goal and will continue to work hard to reach it. Are you keeping your goal in front of you. How are you doing? Are you on track to reach your goal weight by 12/31/2012? You have an extra day this year (leap year) make the most of it every one of your 366 days!

My Goal:  “To weigh 135 lbs by 12/31/2012. (That is a loss of approximately 40 lb in 1 year).

     I am back on track with my action steps. I have also marked everything off my to-do list for the week.I have done all exercises planned and an extra 30 minutes of swimming in addition. I am back to counting calories daily. My organizational steps are on track. Do you have action steps in place for week 10? Did you learn anything new this week that you would like to add? Maybe you want to add a session of swimming to your routine or set goals for nightly sleep. Look over this weeks blog posts and your inspiration journal. Create action steps that will help you reach your goals.

My Action Steps: I will continue to limit my daily caloric intake to 1600 calories, focusing on good nutrition in my choices. I will continue to speed walk no less than 8 miles during the week and include at least two combined toning and cardio exercise session. I will officially weigh in once this week, marking my progress on the Weight Tracker tool.”

To-Do List:

1. Plan Weekly Menu (See Plan To Eat Fabulous Foods.)

2. Grocery Shop (See Stocking The “New Me” Pantry.)

3. Refill Snack Basket (See The Real Food Fight .)

4. Weigh In (See Weigh In Wednesday.)

5. Organize Outfits and Gear (See Get Your Rear In Gear.)

6. Speed Walk a Total of 8 Miles

7.  2 or More Toning/Cardio Sessions (10 Ways to Increase Your Metabolism)

8. Enjoy a Rest Day. (See Balance.)

9. Grade Last Weeks Efforts (See A for Effort.)

10. Assess Past Week’s Efforts (See Assess for Success.)

11. Create next Stepping Stones Sheet

     If you aren’t tracking daily activities, I suggest you do so. Keeping a close watch on your exercise, food intake, and motivational activities keeps you focused and helps you stay on course. Below is an example of my daily log. You can use this, design your own, or simply make notes in your journal. Be dedicated to your own success. Commit now to taking the steps that will get you to your goal. Good luck and blessings in week 10.

      Weight tracker has been wonderful for me. In those times where the loss is inconsistent or slow, I am able to see where I am in relation to where I need to be to reach my ultimte goal. Because my goal is very realistic, so far even when the loss is slow, I am still ahead of the game.

        I think I need something like this to even just keep my mind on becoming healthy. I slip into old ways and can lose myself, forget why I started this journey until Its to late and I’ve sabotaged all my efforts. It’s great that you can stay ahead of the game. 🙂

        The real key to staying ahead is setting goals that are highly attainable and then tracking closly. Hope the weight tracker is a help to you! I look forward to hearing about all of your successes along the way. 🙂
