The dreaded Monday is here. In regards to my weight loss, I love Mondays because it’s a fresh week. On my “MyFitnessPal” app, Monday start the week. So it’s an easy way to say goodbye to the week before and have a fresh slate. This is a great opportunity to start over again if you have been slipping on meals or exercise.

My goals this week are to continue with weight training and to continue with the “MyFitnessPal” app. Easy enough. I should add in to get outside more this week. I’ve been relying back on the gym since it has been so hot, but last Thursday I went on a walk/jog with a friend and it was pretty awesome. She taught me a lot about running, posture, and the width of my steps. I was worried more about speed whereas now I am more focused on distance. I feel good about it. So there I go, 3 goals. Weight lifting, my app, and my distance running.

With any new week, set a new goal for yourself. Do you want to go to the gym 3 times this week? Do you want to do 30 minutes of cardio instead of 20? Do you want to cut more soda out? Set a goal, make it happen, and we can go into next week feeling great about what we accomplished.

If anyone is feeling discouraged over losing 5 pounds, 10 pounds, or discouraged because the scale isn’t changing as fast as you want it to. Check this picture out and think about how far you have come. And remember, it’s Monday! Start over right now.
