Ok, full disclosure, I haven't been tracking in my Weight Watchers app for about a week now. Life happened and I ate all the things. I'm back though and ready to hit this full force with a genius plan. You know how they always sell weight loss and fitness programs with the words "Boot Camp" in them? This brings to mind lots of sweating, pain, and not fun times and I'm more of a rainbows and kittens kind of gal. So, anywho, I've got my own plan and it involves stickers (of course).
I'm hitting the Sticker Revolution hard and setting up my own more whimsical and fluffy "Boot Camp" maybe I'll call it "WOOOHOOO Camp!". Catchy right? So, this is all being spurred by a particular event. On September 7th, we're going camping at Clinton State Park to watch one of the most inspirational people I know run a 100 mile marathon. Lawrence is several hours away and car rides really kill me, plus, we'll be in a tent and up and down throughout the night and day. With my medical and weight issues, this is going to be a REAL struggle for me physically (not to mention emotionally). Hey look at this guy running a 100 mile marathon and your dying on a car ride. But that's what "WOOOHOOO Camp!" is all about! I'm implementing a routine (or series of routines) from now until September 7th to help me get to a more positive place mentally, AND to get myself back on track with things that help me be more healthy physically.
In the Sticker Revolution, we usually set 3 goals for ourselves per week, but I'm just going for broke and trying to earn ALL the stickers! But seriously, this is what it's going to look like for me. Starting tomorrow, the following items are on the agenda: 1. No electronics after 8:00 p.m. (except my Headspace sleep cast). 2. Track my food in weight watchers every day and try to have 4 roll over points as often as I can so I can still have a good weekend. 3. Go to personal training 2 days per week AND bump up my daily step count. 4. Actually follow my night and morning routines which include things like laying out my clothes and packing lunch. 5. Use my Headspace and Curable apps EVERY day. 6. Take my dang vitamins every day.
If I do this consistently for a whole month, I'll be establishing good habits which will become reflex, and hopefully, I can build up to doing even bigger and better things. For right now, I'll just be happy with not feeling like I arm wrestled a bear after sleeping in a tent for a weekend. "WOOOHOO Camp!" here I come.
