So today was weigh in day, again. Funny how they sneak up on you like that. But after attending a couple of BBQs for the holiday weekend and dealing with my new back-to-work schedule, I’m surprised I did so well. Honestly, I didn’t try that hard the past week. I still tracked, but I was also very lazy with what I ate (had my hand in the animal cracker bag too often). I really think I’m still losing easy baby weight (my son is 3 months old) and it’s going to get harder very soon. I need to buckle down and focus.

Today’s meeting was all about being assertive. Now I am NOT an assertive person. I’m very quiet. While I’ve become more vocal since having kids, I do most of my speaking up on their behalf and remain quiet when it comes to myself. This needs to change. I need to put on my big girl pants. ugh.

So in honor of being more attentive to myself, I’m listing out goals that I want to accomplish this week. If anyone gets in my way, hopefully I’ll remember about this week’s meeting topic and be a voice for myself.

Hopefully these goals will carry on to weeks thereafter, but…baby steps. 🙂

  • Don’t eat off my toddler’s plate.
  • Measure/count and track EVERYTHING.
  • Work out 5 days this week.
  • No Diet Coke or flavored sparkling water that looks healthy but isn’t because it’s also loaded with chemicals.

Next Thursday I’ll be back to update you all on my goals. I know I’m not perfect, but at least two better be checked off.

What goals did you set for yourself this week?
