This year I didn’t do my typical New Year’s resolution, instead, I wanted to focus more on my faith. Now that I feel a little more stable/grounded it’s time to focus on my fitness. I admit I’ve done it again and I’ve gained back some of the weight I previously lost. Go figure right? I mean it’s a cycle for me and I’ve repeated it numerous times, that is one of the main reasons I started off focusing on my faith first. I figured if I was somewhat grounded I might be able to stop this yo-yo cycle. So, wish me luck! Part of focusing on my fitness this time around, I’ve decided to use of one my planners to help keep me on track. So welcome to my Big Happy Fitness Planner and fitness reboot beginning again.
Big Happy Fitness Planner
I am using a Big Happy Planner to track my fitness goals, workouts, water, and meals. Basically, I’ve turned a normal Big Happy Planner into a fitness planner without buying the fitness inserts. It’s really easy and can be done by just adding a few lines, phrases etc. to your weekly layout of your planner.
Currently, I am tracking my meals – breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I don’t do snacks at the start of my fitness reboots. I also want to track my water until my water drinking habit kicks in. Then I am tracking my Apple Watch Activity (Apple Fitness) both my daily steps and distance. I have another section for each day I haven’t decided what to do with it. I was thinking of daily thoughts, struggles or mood.
Big Happy Fitness Planner – Fitness Reboot
It’s a full reboot, you know the kind you do when your computer is acting up? The one where you’ve actually got to just unplug it to get it to turn off. Yep, that’s where I am at. I’ve shut down and I am finally powered back on. I feel like I’ve got the power to get what I need to get done, I’ll keep you updated on that.
I will be doing low-carbs it’s what I know, it works, and it’s something that has always been easy for me. That means I’ll be sharing low-carb recipes again. Excited? HA! Probably as excited as I am at giving up all the sweet things I enjoy. Anyways it’s what needs to be done and I am doing it. See how strong I sound?
Fitness Reboot – Working Out & Cardio
Well, when you do a fitness reboot you’ve got to include some exercises, and that thing they call cardio. So, my friends, you’ll be seeing some workout & cardio related articles too! Oh, Joy Right? I will be focusing on upper, middle, and lower body. I guess I could have said the entire body huh? Anyways you’ll soon be seeing workouts for your arms, shoulders, back, legs, booty, and abs. Did I tell you that I think mine took a vacation? Yeah, them babies have packed up and are probably hanging out on a beach somewhere.
The workout routines I will be sharing will probably not have a lot of jumping or running. My ankles have screws and plates holding them together, and I decided to stand on a stool last year to hang balloons and fell. So my left knee is a wreck so I can’t do a lot of those things without feeling pain for days.
Fitness Reboot – Change your eating habits
I think I mentioned that I would be doing a low-carb meal plan. I am completely aware that in order to not gain weight, to lose weight and to maintain the weight you’ve got to eat properly. Yeah, I can’t do that! I have a sweet tooth that really loves kicking me in my bum. If I am not restricting that stuff entirely then, I am stuffing my face and gut with them. So time to get the low-carb bandwagon, once again. So here’s lunch! Tuna, avocado (I didn’t eat) cheddar cheese sprinkled with black pepper.

This advice is for everyone trying to lose weight, or maintain it you’ve got to eat healthily. What works for me may or may not work for you, you’ve got to find your own healthy way of eating. But like I said before I’ll be sharing some of my meals, recipes etc. all geared toward a very low-carb menu plan.
