Wellness checkup

We just had our annual wellness checks at work, and, per usual, mine was awesome except for my weight. I need to lose weight. Blah blah blahhhhhhhhhhhh.

My insurance is different now, and I have to show improvement next year in order to get some money taken off my insurance costs. Money talks, so I am going to kick ass over the next 12 months and lose weight again. 

I talked to my favorite coach at Farrell's, and we set a goal to lose 30 pounds this year. I have the fitness part down - six workouts a week, mixing cardio and strength. She suggested I up my strength training more. I can do that. 

It's the food that kills me! I just want all the delicious things in my mouth all of the time. 

At Midland, after our wellness checks we had to call a nurse to talk about our results, but that's where it ended. So I would just get that call over with, and then continue on eating whatever I want and dreading the next annual check.

However, at Nebraska Medicine we can take advantage of a wellness coach, who will set goals with you and call back at appointed times. Also, you can share an online journal with him/her. I took full advantage of all of that, and we set a goal and some follow up appointments. 

So my goal is...

To lose 4 pounds by December 1st. 

It may not seem like a lot, considering my first weigh in was October 19th. But I have three Thanksgiving between now and December 1, so I didn't want to set myself up to fail. 

I am going back to my old plan, where I weighed in every Thursday. I will post this Thursday with what happens.
