Back to regular life....

Well the conference is over and I'm back to "normal" life, at least for awhile! Since I've been back last Friday, I've gotten to the gym twice and played ball hockey last night. I'm really feeling focused again on getting below that 160 mark! I wasn't going to give myself a goal to get to 160 - I thought it was too close when I got down to 162.4, but I'm realizing very quickly that it's not going to be easy and that I need to remain focused - with my eye on the prize!!

I weighed myself this morning and.....

Weight: 163.2

Body Fat: 33.0

Water: 48.9 %

Bone Mass: 6.5

I've learned from my coach that my prize must be a non-food item (because previously I would always reward myself with food - my goal before coaching to get to 165 was a Vachon Flakie!!)....... My birthday is in 11 days, and if I can get down below 160 prior to my b-day, then my prize is going to be a manicure/pedicure - I don't get them often, but with the winter months my hands and feet could use them!!

Welcome back to regular life Becky! Good to have you back. Glad to hear you have got right back to your exercising.

"Keep your eye on the prize" Can I quote you on that?What is it going to feel like to be at your target weight in your wedding dress? You are going to be stunning on your big day.

I love the new goal of getting to 160 by your birthday. I think it is doable!

What would it be like to book your manicure and pedicure ahead of time as an incentive for reaching your goal?

I like the idea of pre-booking the manicure/pedicure and I think I will do sow for next week. Unfortunately I really enjoyed my birthday and didn't make the 160 mark. Right now there are no weekend plans for the 24th weekend, so I'm going to book my mani/pedi for Friday night after work!!

March 24th! Now there is a goal date set! We will have to take a look at how you are progressing on your call on Friday morning.
