Day 4- My Boundaries

Today, it is all about boundaries, not diets. 
I imagine my diet as a road and I have to stay between the lines. If I go outside the road I will be up on the embankment or in the weeds. When I stay on course I reach my goals and life is good. This will give me flexibility so that I can succeed. I can do anything for 2 weeks, but the stay consistent on this healthy lifestyle plan is going to be a challenge because I give up when the going gets tough instead of accepting the bad time and telling myself that I will do better next time.

Here are the two roads that I will travel-

On My Straight & Narrow Road-                      the yellow brick road to the Emerald City
The Wide Road w/ Safe Shoulders to Drive-    no more car wrecks
My Exercise Plan-
  •  Minimum 30 minutes of walking 6 days of
      the week. I get one day of rest.
  • Here is the ideal plan for exercise-
Bootcamp 60 minutes
walk 30 minutes in the neighborhood
Bootcamp 60 minutes
walk 30 minutes in the neighborhood
Friday- Bootcamp
60 minutes
Pilates 60 minutes

My Diet Plan-
·       6 days a week and take Sundays off.
·       To sign up and do Weight Watchers for my birthday
·       Weigh-in on Sundays at home
·       To portion
out my food by weighing the proper amount at every meal- 
~3-4 oz of protein- lean meats and alternatives
~1/2 c. whole grains

unlimited fresh vegetables and fruits
8oz of milk or dairy
64 oz of water daily
Daily Multivitamin

  • When I am tired I will at least put
      on my pedometer and increase the number of steps that I take in a day to
      5,000 steps which is about 2.5 miles.

  • When I am really busy I will be kind
      to myself and tell myself that it is just temporary this does not mean
      that I won't go back to it.

  • When I step go out of the boundaries
      of my diet or exercise I will not beat myself up. I will tell myself
      that I will do better at the next meal or exercise session.

  • Allow for alcoholic drinks on special
      occasions like when Mo comes into town, birthday cakes and the
      occasional square of dark chocolate.
