Let’s talk weight management. When we set of goal of losing weight, we tend to focus on the result like losing 10 or 30 pounds.
What if you set your weight management goals with the intention that weight loss is a journey and not a destination…that it is about having a fit and healthy body. Therefore, setting smaller achievable daily routines or mini milestones such as drinking a designated amount of water per day or not eating from the breadbasket at the restaurant today or daily stretching for five days each week or a minimum number of steps for weekdays.
I, like others, am good at losing weight, but not always good at keeping it off. As part of my focus this year, I have changed my intention to having a fit body and being at a healthy weight for me. That includes focusing on weekly goals for cardio minutes, two weekly resistance training session and planning my food intake (what I will put in my mouth as I already have a menu planned) 24-hours in advance. I am not focusing on the scale this time, but on small milestone like getting into a skirt that was tight or being able to increase the weight I lift.
My progress has been slow and steady for the past seven plus months, and I am confident that there is no going back.
How would your relationship with your weight change if you changed the way you look at it or your intention for it?
