Weekly Goal Plan to lose weight with Steps and Potential Risk Areas and Pitfalls.











 

Hello Everyone,


So with this goal, I figured a needed a plan or steps. I’ve started with working backwards - it’s like working destination first and then how to get there. Then I worked out the potential pitfalls and risk areas.

 Steps Work from Goal Plan

  • On Sunday, weigh myself at Virgin Active aim to be 81kg - yes still keeping with the one pound target. 
  • Sunday morning walk to Virgin Active to get weighed - and have a nice hot tub and steam room. 
  • Walk up stairs for a week instead of taking the lift/elevator 
  • Walk to up a hill after work at least three times a week.
  •  Do twenty minutes light cardio at least three times a week - sheduled - Monday, Wednesday, Friday. 
  • Avoid deserts at work all week, and no cakes or pastries at the weekend either. 
  • Plan lunches and dinners in advance - at least a day ahead. 

 Risk Areas and Potential Pitfalls 

 These are potential obstacles and barriers to achieving my weight loss - at least so I'm aware of them in advance. Most of them are based on my moods at the time, and are pretty much the different versions of the same thing.
  •  Working late and getting too tired to cook or make anything - this tends to lower my resistance as I pick up stuff on the way home - normally a reduced price bakery products or eating a sugar laden cereal . 
  • Working under pressure or feeling under pressure to deliver - I normally have a chocolate bar or something sweet. 
  • Getting too tired after work so I just literally forget the plan or bypass it getting upset so I just get what I want instant gratification if something nice is on display 'This-time-won't-matter' mindset.
  •  Feeling 'this-is-a-once-in-a-while' treat I can't let go 
  • Supermarket reducing really expensive pastries at the end of day 
  • Bored with eating healthily or just generally boredom 
  •  Feeling as I'm depriving myself or going without when I just want to eat what I want
  •  Not actually planning meals or following the plan
  • Feeling the goal is unimportant in the short term and I can start tomorrow. 
  • Buying sugary cereal!
  • Giving in to temptation.
  • Eating late at night. Like super late - however this also ties in with working late. There is cascading effect on some things.
There are simple solutions though they aren't easy. I could simply avoid going to the supermarket after work. It's more difficult than it sounds. I could plan and cook weekly but I like fresh food and frozen stuff thens to hibernate in my freezer for a very very long time.

Check-ins?

I haven't figured this one yet. So simple but still a lot. Perhaps just a review at the end with lessons learnt. To be fair this will be an on-going goal until I get to a reasonable weight - basically fit into my old clothes again.

See you later

Daily Writing Journal: Mo Money Challenge - week 8 which means £8 in the tin!

£8 in coins So I'm on my second week on saving and still not sure. I'm not feeling the pinch per se, but it's hard thinking how am I going to maintain this. So I managed to get a few coins out and gather some change, but at some point I'll really need to organise this. I've put in four fifty pence pieces with come up to two pounds sterling and the rest in pound coins.  Remember the money tin from last week. Well it all went inside that.... How am I feeling? Slightly bored but I still have a long way to go..... Saving money is boring, spending is more interesting.

Searching for office christmas party venue, celebrating Momma AG birthday.

Rang to sing Momma A G happy birthday! Got to work early and did some of my goal work. Also Accounting Guru Boss showed me an easy way of planning. She is a genius. It's that simple so I'm going to practice her method of planning.  I must say I've learn plenty. Working with her is like one long professional master class with private tuition.  Glamorous colleague also gave me tips on completing a goal related task. All tasks are like elephants tackle the largest on in the morning. Red Jumper colleague took the day off for Black Friday. Apparently he's waking up at early to go on the internet looking for deals after which he'll go to the shopping centre. Told him I was going to wait until boxing day to get a new purse. Then after all the excitement he was like 'What am I going to do on Cyber Monday." Glamorous and I went looking for some where for our team christmas lunch. She wasn't having us eat in a pub. She has high standards. She was okay abo

Daily Writing Journal - #6 my urban lit African American romance. Went Christmas Shopping in House of Fraser and John Lewis.

Not much going. Well, it's Christmas! I went shopping yesterday after work to get some presents. I still have plenty more. House of Fraser is a good place to go. I feel it misses a lot of traffic because it's in between John Lewis and Debenhams.  I'm talking about departmental stores on Oxford Street, London. Okay let's talk about writing. Or maybe not. It's the festive season. In John Lewis , they also had the Elton John Experience. That was nice. I feel compelled to show some pictures but that means downloading all the pictures in my phone. I'll get more organised about this as I go along. Then again this is just a journal of my writing. So writing, well I said I'd skip that but I did manage to write another synopsis. What do you think? Synopsis Angelica Washington is a strong woman takes family responsibility seriously, but things aren't always as perfect as they seem .  A bad family ordeal and an impulsive urge leads her to the arms of a h
