If you don’t like what you see in the mirror, don’t get sad or throw in the towel. It’s time to get serious about making healthy changes
Okay, it is confession time! I have been slacking off a bit in the nutrition department and to a lesser extent in fitness, too, and I am less than thrilled with the results. I have gained some weight and the fat has overstayed it welcome. It’s time to get serious!
I am determined this month to lose some weight that has crept on over the last 6 months for a couple reasons: 1) I want to get back down to my ideal maintenance weight, 2)my husband and I are going to Las Vegas this month for the IHRSA convention, and I want to attend my first fitness convention in great shape, and 3) I want to set a good example for my clients and students by practicing what I teach.
My biggest hindrance is accountability. I start out doing quite well and then I drop the ball because I don’t have a peer support system for my fat loss goals. That’s where social dieting (like DietBet or HealthyWage) comes in: not only is there a peer support system built in to the contests, there is also an element of competition and the lure of money – how awesome is that!
I know that this time around I need to have a good plan set up, because we all know how true the saying is “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail”. even if for some reason I don’t lose 4% of my weight, I will still get healthier, so it’s a win-win! Here is my game plan for this DietBet:
So, if you don’t like what you see in the mirror, take a step forward and get serious about your health. Join me in the FitFluential DietBet challenge and let’s get serious about our health together!
