lifestyle change goals for March...

I would love to say that my March goals were to lose 5lbs and more inches, but I'm going for the behavioral changes this month. My trainer thinks the physical changes will follow...we'll see.

I got my body fat testing results back...very surprised that I am considered "obese," and very depressing to think that I have over 12lbs of fat to lose! Talk about deflating my high!! :(

I'm doing it all for them...

But I suppose it's good to know, so I can work on decreasing my overall % of body fat...all in the name of HEALTH, of course.

Call me courageous for sharing this information ;)

Here are my two little S.M.A.R.T. (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timely) goals for March--

Goal number one: fasting! Fasting is not for everyone, and certainly not if you are diabetic!

What I will be doing is fasting once a week for 24hrs, most likely from 6pm - 6pm. That way, I'll be asleep for part of it! LOL!

This will be a water, green tea, possibly juice, fast. Nothing else for 24hrs. Hopefully, this will help detox my body and boost my metabolism.

Goal number two: sleeping! My goal is to get 8hrs of sleep every night!  My average to date has been around 6-7. My body is telling me that's not enough. My body needs more sleep to recuperate. Too little sleep has also been linked to obesity.

So that's it! My March lifestyle change goals laid out there! I'm hoping I can stick to these for one month...remembering that doing something for a month = HABIT!

Here's to healthier habits!
