I have been very goal oriented my whole life. In the last few years I’ve set many different fitness goals for myself- and accomplished them all: Fitness video appearance, half marathon, handstand in the middle of the room. I speak from experience when I say that setting goals and having a plan is the best way to get what you want in any facet of life. So, my goal to lose the last 10 lbs baby weight has proved to be far more challenging than I thought, and I seemed to have hit a plateau late in June. Thus true to past experience I have refreshed my plan and am polishing my attitude.

As of July 8 I have recommitted to eating clean. I was tracking my calories on an app in my phone and realized that, though I don’t eat what I would call a lot of sweets, my sugar had gotten a little out of control as well as my salt and I was lacking the protein necessary to sustain/ build my muscle back.

For my workouts- I am taking every opportunity I have to be active. I have scheduled workouts, but also have been going for hikes and walks- baby in-tow. I realize I need to be doing resistance work at least 2 times a week and I strive for 2-3 yoga classes as well. And now I’m back to teaching my regular schedule so the extra core work is built in 🙂

The key to my focus these last few days has been one meal/ one day at a time. My vision is that my diligence and awareness will create the change I’m looking for. The old saying goes ‘slow and steady wins the race’.
