After writing about my weight loss challenges, I decided to track my progress on the blog. This is more about a means of motivation for myself, rather than to educate anyone or to show off. [I have nothing to show off at present anyway, so that is beside the point.]
Things I want to achieve in the next 12 months:
- Lose 30 kilos.
- Improve my daily hydration. [I used to drink very little water, and I had amped it up to 4 litres a day. Now I drink around 2 litres, but I would like to hit a daily intake of at least 2.5 litres.]
- Take up yoga again.
- Join a dance class again.
I will post updates regularly, although I haven’t as yet decided when to embark upon this path, and how to schedule the updates.
Because this space is secluded, much like a diary, I feel free to express my thoughts and failings without judgement. Somewhere, in the back of my consciousness, I am aware that other people’s judgement shouldn’t bother me; but it does nevertheless.
Another, greater, reason is that when I track myself in any form, I tend to do better. There is a lot of research that proves this, and I firmly believe in those results. By the virtue of declaring that I would try and blog every day for a month, I actually struck off a goal from my list of eventual to-dos.
I hope to see similar results on my weight loss journey. Good luck to me [and anyone else currently on a quest of their own]!
