May (Mighty in mAny waYs)

Wednesday, May 02, 2012

My "taking it one week at a time" seems to be working fine for me.
Last week was "tracking" and "curbing the emotional eating", and I've got that under control now.
This week is "starting the Mighty hundreds" = building up to 100 push ups, 200 sit ups (my own version of them anyway) and 200 squats. Decided to skip the 150 dips program for now.

In May, I want to
- get on with the Mighty hundreds
As I now know that I feel pressured when I set myself "long-term goals" (not that one month is all that long at all...), I've decided to take this, again, one week at a time. So, one week at a time of "clean eating" looks like this:
- If I can't track it, I'm not having it
- bread max 3 times a week, and pasta max 1 time a week
- NO emoticon, NO emoticon, and NO emoticon. WAIT! What? No emoticon??? Now you understand why I MUST take this a week, even a DAY at a time! Because the thought of NO chocolate for a whole month is just too much emoticon But I want to try, see how I feel.
- More green smoothies

Apart from that, I'm happily educating myself, this week by following the Food Revolution Summit broadcasts, and next week, all going well (I'm no technology wizz), following the Tapping World Summit. (Much credit is due to GIANTPANDA for sharing tons of useful info in her blogs. THANK YOU :-)

Something I heard this morning in one of the Food Revolution Summit broadcasts and which really resonated with me:
"The subtle energy of your food becomes your mind" - David Wolfe
Now, what kind of energy do I want in my mind? Hearing this just reinforced my eating clean goal for this week and this month ;-)

What about you Sparkies?
Where will your journey take you this month?

    Good for you! Making goals and keeping them is so encouraging! I have been incorporating more exercise in my daily routine. The bootcamp challenge team gives me a 10 min. video to do each day for 28 days. emoticon
    I take it a day at a time and no looking back! We can do this!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hopefully, May will bring more movement for me. April was stagnant. I MUST change that!

    emoticon Good to read you are doing so well! I was surprised by your goal to have bread 3x a week and pasta 1x a week. What about rice? Are you limiting it too? Is there a specific reason for limiting pasta and bread? What foods are you focusing on instead? (sorry, being very curious!)
    Your 'Mighty Hundreds' sound fabulous... Go Eve!!!
