Four days til 2019!
Thursday, December 27, 2018
Day 5 report - Yes! I made progress at kitchen/food de-cluttering. It was trash day so I had a wee bit of extra motivation to clean and throw. Seems like I drank a good amount of water but will need to come up with a way to prove it. Took a nice walk and came home with two wet and somewhat muddy dogs (ugh) but did not touch the Nordic-Trak. So results were mixed success "but" not to worry... progress not perfection.
Onward to Day #4 before 2019...
Today I am thinking about GOALS. In addition to my own background, all the experts and common sense indicate that you have to know where you're going in order to actually get there. I agree about 95% of the time but am committed to leaving some room for spontaneity and exploring. (fyi - I have set out on more than one cross-country road trip without an itinerary or reservations etc and been quite happy with the results.)
My 2019 journey to a healthy lifestyle will be guided by a slightly different approach to goals than I have taken in the past. Yes, I am going to make them specific and measurable (SMART) but am keeping the list limited, focused, and short-term. I will have five goals with one each in the area of weight, exercise, food, personal growth, and a healthy habit. Initially, I will focus only on today. Now I'm going to let this simmer in my brain for a day or two before adding the specifics.
It's sunny but cold today so the dogs and I all wore our snow jackets on our walk. Rain and ice predicted for tonight/tomorrow. There isn't anything worse than a bit of rain on top of ice and I just don't bounce like I used to! Time to get the grippers on my boots and I may get that Nordic Trak out after all!
