Aiming from a different angle.
Monday, September 30, 2013
I have been on this site for nearly three years now. (I think. lol) Even with all of the wonderful information, useful tools and amazing support system, I am only down 15 pounds from my highest weight.
Previously, I based my wins and fails on whether I had lost weight that week or not. I had no other goals (well, to be healthier....blah, blah, blah). My whole world seems to revolve around trying to lose weight. It's exhausting and boring.
While I still desire to have a healthy BMI, I'm going to change my focus. I am setting goals for myself for October that have nothing to do with the scale or how much fat I am carrying. I will focus on healthy habits, cleaning/organizing habits, career habits, self pampering habits and fun.
Here it goes:
~10,000 steps 5 days a week
~10 minutes of "very active" activity (according to Fitbit) 5 days a week
~10 minutes of meditation 5 days a week
~clean out one cabinet, drawer or shelf 5 days a week
~drink 10 glasses of water everyday
~choose the healthiest option available for meals 5 days a week
~take a good long soak in the tub once a week
~make 1 piece of jewelry 5 days a week
~make contact with the person who wanted to see more of my work
~con someone into playing a board game with me once a week
~start planning Christmas gift list
~see what classes are available.....craft, nutrition, exercise or ???????
~make a dental appointment
That will do it for now. I plan to review weekly. Everything on this list is completely doable. I'm ready.
