Here’s a quick round up of my week 2 Weight Loss challenge. I’m doing the weight loss challenge again to give myself a really positivity boost and get myself really focused on positive and natural weight loss.
I’m recording my progress most days as I go trough the challenge this time. Check them out on YouTube Daily weight loss challenge videos. You can subscribe to my channel to keep up with the daily videos and check out the tips too.
Recap of this weeks weight loss challenge
Day 8 ~ We looked at anchoring the good stuff. Basically anchoring any positive habits, feelings, thoughts, actions, progress… I’ve certainly been doing a lot of anchoring this week. For example: The positive habit of swapping more chocolate bars for fruit.
Day 9 ~ Is all about getting more active. This week I’ve been walking daily and adding more mini exercise boosts, I’m particularly focusing on adding more arm exercises.
Day 10 ~ I encourage you to focus on what you’re increasing and adding rather than what you’re cutting out or giving up. I’m focusing on increasing my water intake, my fruit and veg intake (especially for snacks) and increasing my activity levels.
Day 11 ~ Affirmations for weight loss ~ This is my favourite for the week. I’m making healthy choices because I love my body.
Day 12 ~ Visualizing for weight loss ~ I’ve been doing a lot of visualizing and It really does help me to feel positive. I love the melt away your excess weight video. I recommend following along with this guided visualization daily as you work through the challenge.
Day 13 ~ Vision boards for weight loss and Visual aids. Visual reminders for weight loss are really powerful and I strongly encourage you to have some. I have a vision book by my bed that is filled with drawings of me at my ideal weight, photo’s of me at my ideal weight, affirmations that support me, message that support me. I also have photo’s of size 12 clothes that I love.
Day 14 is a review day. I decided not to jump on the scales just yet. I want to wait until the end of the challenge. I’ve reviewed my action step goals and listed them below:
- Walk 30+minutes a day (Monday -Friday)
- Plan all evening meals
- Drink 4+ big glasses of water daily
- Eat 5+ Fruit and Veg daily
- 3+ minutes of arm exercise (Monday -Friday)
- Daily exercise boosters (top of the hour during work days unless on a coaching call with clients)
No rules weekends for long-term weight loss
When I first started the challenge I set goals for every day. I found after a while that I wasn’t always achieving the goals at the weekend. Over time I have found that it’s better to set myself goals Monday to Friday and then I have no rules weekends. That doesn’t mean I go crazy and eat everything in sight, but I like knowing at the weekend things are far more relaxed. If I don’t go for a set walk for my 30+ minutes, that’s okay. If I eat chocolate, that’s okay. If I don’t get anywhere close to my 10,000 daily steps it’s fine… My weekends are for enjoying family time and yes having some treats if I want them.
Okay, that’s my week sorted. I’d love to know what you’re doing to help you achieve your ideal weight.
