Winter Warriors Week 6

Woo Hoo Winter Warriors Week 6 and I’m still here! I’m feeling so positive about 2011 and generally about my ability to set and meet my goals.

Fresh and local food is amazing, low carbon footprint and lovely and yummy. These are organic tomatoes and mushrooms grown by a local greenhouse grower.

Week Six {February 7, 2011}:

What have you done this past week to help you achieve your goals?

I drew a line under the fall from the wagon, moved onwards and moved my ass more to make sure that my weigh in on Saturday was still great. I am inspired by what I was managed to achieve this week and it’s driving me to see what I can achieve this week without the diet fail. I have limited things going on in the mornings so can get to the Gym regularly and make a difference to what the scales say on Saturday. I have also set an ambitious goal for this week of a 3lb loss so I know I’m going to have to work for it!

New month! Fresh starts! How are you feeling in February?

Feeling great. January started with a bang and then dwindled out, February is the month of my birthday but it’s just one day isn’t it and it’s a 20 – something birthday nothing important, it’s a short month but I want to challenge myself and have set myself a target of 7 lbs or more for the month.

Are you competitive? Do you find that seeing how well {or not so well} others do pushes you?

Dangerously so lol. In real life I am competitive with myself but if someone sets me a target I want to break it, I am really goal orientated and now I’ve managed to become solution focussed (goodness I sound like a manual for idiotic management! It works, honestly, it does, I don’t have 30lbs to prove it!). I have always been the same, even in jobs I have always wanted to exceed targets and be the best.

What is your favourite outdoor winter activity?

Just walking with my family, exploring places using the National Trust or English Heritage. We wrap up in waterproofs, hats, scarfs and gloves and just walk. It’s lovely family time and there is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing!

Fun Question of the Week: What would be your ideal way to spend a Saturday night?

I’m a total homebody but for a special Saturday I love to go to a local pub which does great food or a restaurant with family and friends to have a few wines (I rarely drink so it’s only ever a few or I fall over!) and good food.

Have a good week everyone!
