Yesterday I went 3 for 3!!
1. 30 minutes of walking (this will be tricky because I have another lunch meeting and it's going to rain ... but I can do it) ___x___
2. 5 fruits and vegetables ___x___
3. Stop eating dinner the minute I feel no longer hungry. If I want something more later it's okay but stop when I'm no longer hungry. period. ___x___
Score now 5 or 25 minutes of time off come January.
Sheila asked what I was going to do with that time off - and of course, I'm hoping to make it a whole 8 hour work day ... so my score has to reach 96 - so I'll have to be pretty durn successful. Right now my enthusiasm is high though - and perhaps, as time goes one I can bump up the number of daily steps I take. But whatever I do on that day off - it is going to be totally for me. Sweet, self loving, concentrated me time. Maybe I'll go to a city and shop with a girlfriend. Maybe I'll go to a city and visit a museum. I love museums, especially art museums and they're really the only thing I miss about living in the country. It's possible I'll do a repeat of the Spa Day I did last June. (sounds tempting and they usually have January specials)
Yesterday I walked 30 minutes at the gym with no consideration of distance. It felt like I was walking a 20 minute mile but I didn't bother to count. Minutes was what I was looking for and the surprise for me was finding out how much faster the time went. Usually I'm mentally fidgeting when I get close to the 1 or 2 mile limit worrying about how much time it's taking - usually because I haven't blocked out enough time. Making that decision up front made it the blissful sort of hypnotic experience I've been looking for. Yay! Always exciting to discover something new.
So - what steps will I take today?
1. Listen to hypnosis tape
2. Swim 30 minutes
3. 5 fruits and vegetables
Happy December First to one and all!
