Today is Day 0 - the day before I start OPTAVIA. I received my box a few days ago and I'm excited to get started. I had my kickoff call today for new clients and it was really inspirational to get my mind in the right place. I also worked through some of the Lifebook, writing down answers and trying to figure out my WHY.
Some of what I wrote down...
I am a mom, almost 40 years old. I mastered my digestive issues and now I need to tackle the weight. I want something easy to follow that doesn't take a lot of time to prep and shop. My weight goes up and down by 10-15 lbs regularly. My sleep and energy are mostly okay, I try to exercise a few days per week - walking or kickboxing - but I don't always do that. I tend to skip meals and then overeat with large portion sizes. I don't snack much, and I drink plenty of water. My mental health is okay but I'm tired of the way I feel inside my body. I don't have a lot of extra money, I am working on paying off debt, although I also try to make time for fun especially for my kids but also myself with my friends.
I WANT TO BE HEALTHY. I want to set a good example for my kids, I want to fit into my clothes again. I want to feel better about myself.
In the future, I want to travel - Alaska, Scotland, and Ireland are on my list.
My financial goals need focus.
I AM GOING TO PUT 100% OF MYSELF INTO THIS PROGRAM. I NEED IT FOR MYSELF.
I am ready to make a change.
I am the heaviest I have ever been.
I want to make a change.
I am PSYCHED for this program.
I am CONFIDENT in myself. I know I can be successful if I commit and don't sabotage myself.
I want to make better choices. I want to lose weight. I want to feel better and fit in my clothes.
Things I am going to do to start to install the Habits of Healthy Eating and Hydration:
1. Set a timer for fuelings
2. Drink 120 oz of water each day
3. Plan a lean and green meal each day
Things I can stop doing to help me eat healthier and hydrate better right now:
1. not planning meals
2. not tracking water
