Yep, it was Weigh in Day. The dreaded hop on the scales and see how well I measured up to what goals I had planned for myself. Was my goal specific enough to achieve? Was my goal measurable–well, yeah, ‘cuz we are weighing me. Was my goal achievable? Was I realistic with my planning? Was my goal timely? You know a S.M.A.R.T. goal (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely).
You ask your self this often, weither you wish to or not, at EatRight UAB–because their method of “reprograming” each student’s way of thinking forces the individual to look at his/her goals. I call us students because we have classes to attend that equip those willing to accept the challenge with the tools to overcome the dreaded villain “Obesity.” The dietitians, trainers, psychologist, and former “students” come before us week after week to challenge our ways of thinking. Not in a negative way, but in ways that make you, as a hopeful “loser,” think about what you are expecting of yourself. Are your expectations realistic? Are you too soft on yourself? These are all questions that the program pushes the invested user to examine.
What were my goals for the week? I will have to tell you later because it is time to go lift weights with the hubby, and I have been on the phone with kiddos who live in Alaska all afternoon — soooooo— I am so gonna have to just forget the rest of my post. 😀
Without further ado, I lost one half pound this week. Which is AMAZING! Just sayin’! That is with lifting 2x’s, Reforming 2x’s, several runs thrown in for good measure, and two days lost in no journal land. I am VERY pleased. All I would need for this to be perfect was a nice LONG Bike ride–then life would be complete.
