Alright, we're down to the last couple of weeks now, so let's get really serious.
What has been working for you? In the past few months, what gave you the best results, or what were you most able to stick with? That's what you're going to do this week: whatever worked best for you. Throw out anything that didn't work, no matter how much you wanted it to work. If it didn't give you the results you wanted, why keep trying? Ditch it and get back to the activities that will help you the most.
For me, I had the best nutrition results when I followed Weight Watchers closely and drank a lot of water each day. It seems so simple, and it really is. If I write down and track what I eat, not going over my Points, I tend to eat more veggies and whole grains, since they're more filling for fewer calories.
Exercise-wise, I've signed up for the BlogHer 5K, and I plan to feel proud of that accomplishment. That means it's time to work harder on running longer intervals, adding more time to my run, and going the entire 5K distance. I've got access to a gym and a great weather week, so I have no excuses here. And a little teeny, tiny secret I'll share: I'm finding I like running better than other exercise.
So this week, I'm going to get back to what works best for me. I'm going to run, I'm going to track what I'm eating, and I'm going to drink more water.
What about you? What best practices will you be focusing on this week?
