Lifestyle Change Strategy #4

Action Step #1:
In your online journal, write about a single "trouble goal".
So I've mastered the basics. I eat enough fruit & vegetables. I drink enough water. What I cannot seem to do is get "enough" exercise. I have good days, sometimes two or three in a row, and then POOF no energy, no motivation (whatever) I stop. Then a few more days pass and I'm back at it.
What does it hurt? It stalls my progress, for one. I can feel myself grow lethargic and I get this "fluffy" feeling. I have to stop this cycle. I'm not going to be a fanatic about exercise but I do have to be more consistant.
I've added it to my goals to do 30 mins of cardio, 3x per week. So far this week, I've done step aerobics on Sunday and 5 kms of running on Tuesday. Here's to finding one more day.
Action Step #2:
Do a mini-Fast Break. Pick another small goal and gain extra momentum with a 14-day streak.
I'm attempting to stay within my calorie range 1200-1550 for the next 14 days. This is also an on-again/off-again thing. This makes day number 2! My daily reward is a little happy face sticker on my calendar.... 14 days from now, I will buy myself new workout pants to celebrate the streak.
