Time to get serious

Monday, April 10, 2017

It seems like I have been on the same cycle for years. Time to break the cycle. All of my reasons just aren't helping and really only let me off the hook. I have been going in the wrong direction with weight and healthful eating/living.

I have made some positive changes. New job last summer. Taking more time to sleep and not "do." (But this makes me feel like some of my weight gain has been because of this...) And, I am still tired! Need to get more active.

Today is Monday. I have just a couple of goals to focus on:
1. Move more. Walk with Melinda tonight. Walk the dogs before bed.
2. Eat healthy. Packed lunch. Good snacks. Lots of water!
3. Be in the moment. Be productive.

More than that will be too much. Will check in at the end of the day.

    Focusing on only a few goals is a great plan! You will realize they are attainable and be able to create the habits you need.

    As far as the always tired, have you had your thyroid and/or vitamin D levels checked. I have problems with both and being tired (even after 8 hours of sleep) is one of the first indicators for me that my levels are off. Good luck to you!

    You are absolutely right to limit your goals. And these sound very good as they are focused on positive behaviors that WILL move you to a healthier life.

    I'm a big believer in one thing.....decide what one thing you will change each week ( or some period). Could be something you want to add, like walking for 10 mins after breakfast or stop doing. You build success that way.
