New Year Challenge: just a little lighter

Current weight: 160 (eeek!!)/ goal weight: 130

So I’ve finally learned the trick to not cringing every time I get on my Wii Fit to weigh in. Push the mute button. Of course, the day I figure this out is the same day I actually want to hear what that little Wii Board dude has to say! I finally did it…I lost 3 lbs!

I made sure to track everything I ate and not just ignore the app when I hate something that would rack up the points. Of course, I allowed myself a splurge day at Macaroni Grill on Saturday, but to be fair…I was moving and cleaning that day.

I also started following the 12 Exercises for New Moms, which is way easier than trying to work out through my daughter’s screams and cries. When she gets cranky while we’re working out, I just take a break and let her chill out then we get back to it. Being able to work out with her will make it easier to stay on track.

So, my goal for next week: do a new exercise routine every day with the baby. If I complete this goal by next week, I can move on. If not, I will keep that same goal for the next week and so on, until I finish it.

One of my biggest issues I have with myself is not being able to finish anything I start, so hopefully this will also boost my confidence a little.

Do you find it easier or harder to achieve your goal when you set yourself little challenges, or do they prove to be obstacles?
