Goodbye 28 Days Hello New Challenges

Tuesday, March 02, 2010

After writing down my life goals and sharing them with my husband I realized this challenge is just the beginning.

In the last 28 day I have made the following AMAZING- 28 -changes ( I am sure I have made more but here are 28)
1. I'm tracking my food everyday
2. I'm drinking 8 glasses of water daily
3. I'm eating 5 fruits and veggies daily
4. Every week I have done 5 days of cardio exercise
5. I have tried to do 10 min of other exercises everyday (a few slips)
6. A BIGGY -I am forgiving myself if I exceed my calories or don't exercise my 10 min. Then I get right back on that goal!
7. I made a sparks page.
8. I made a goal collage
9. I wrote a Blog (This is my second)
10. I joined several sparks teams and have been writing to encourage others
11. I have made three attempts to make new spark buddies (no luck yet but I am going to continue)
12. I am saving money with the Sparks Jar
13. My daughter is joining me at Zumba class
14. My daughter is exercising 10 minutes a day
15. My son want to join us
16. My sister has started going to the gym on a regular bases because she was inspired by me.
17. I can see I am spreading the spark
18. We are eating mostly whole grains.
19. I feel more optimistic
20. I have lost weight
21. I have lost lots of inches
22. I am trying new hobbies
23. I am reaching out to other people at the gym
24. I am sleeping
25. We only drink wine on the weekends

    What a great list and a great idea. I will be finished with my 28 days on Sunday and never thought about everything that I have accomplished. I just keep focusing on the food tracking, exercise, meal planning, short term goals, etc. that I've accomplished, I would have summed it up much shorter, but I have alot more to consider.

    Thank you, you have helped me to see that much more has been accomplished over the past 28 days.

    Good luck on the rest of your journey!
