Catching Up

Tuesday, May 26, 2020

It has been way too long since I last sat down to write. This is hazardous to me because this is the time when I am able to reflect on my journey. Things have been a bit rough lately, and I should have been dedicating more focus to my health so that it could sustain me through the busyness of life.

It's interesting to note that I have kept to my workout streak. I think it is because I am motivated by the number I see written on the chalkboard everyday. It's slowly climbing (when I complete my ST today, I will be able to change it to 33!), and I cannot imagine having to erase it and start back at one again.

I think this is what I need for my diet which is naturally unhealthy due to so many years of bad habits. This past week saw a celebration for a friend's 61st birthday, another friend turned 93 years old the next day, and a younger friend threw a small graduation gathering for the completion of his degree. Needless to say, yesterday I was at home with the rainy weather so I took advantage of the alone time to detox from the sugar and food overload from last week.

What I have decided that I need is a motivational cue. The streak for my workout is so great at keeping me on par. There must be something similar in terms of food choices. I may not streak with a number somewhere, but there must be a goal that I look at everyday to remind myself to make healthier decisions before grabbing whatever seems "tasty" at the moment.

May the brainstorming begin!

    Good for you for actively looking at what you can do to remind yourself how your daily choices impact your ultimate goals! I found the streaks very motivating too, and HATE to break one. You'll find what works for YOU on your nutrition.
