Rather than wait until the proverbial January 1, I am getting a head start on returning to---- I was going to say 'fitness program' ----but really it is "making habit changes program." I read the Spark essay on exercise first thing in the morning. So, even though my face was freezing cold, I put on walking clothing, put on headphones and did a short, first walk to start the habit. Then since the headphones were in, I realized it would be easier to do weed pulling right there and then instead of going back into the house. My hand tendonitis gets bad if I try to do too much, so I am planning to do just half an hour of gardening every single day. I want to make this a habit also. I think I will make a check list, like Fitness Freak on this website.
Then I entered my food for breakfast in the nutrition tracker before even eating it. I should check the calories first.
Plan for new year.
1. Wake up (this takes half an hour to an hour)
2. Put on walking clothing (this sets the mood)
3. Walk one mile (don't forget camera for great early morning ocean photos)
4. Garden one half hour
5. Take shower
Whoops-- forgot eating. Hmm.... I do not like to plan my meals for the day ahead of time. Every time I do, it just never works out. Not sure if I could instill that habit. Too many variables.
