Since I have been on SP for over a month, I decided to go in and change the goals I set up when I first started the program, since meeting those goals has become a habit for me. (Yay!) My first order of business is to make a blog entry every day, to talk about what I'm thinking and feeling. I've always been a bad journaler, so this will be a challenge.
Another goal I set is to eat at least one item of fresh produce every day. This will also be a challenge since sometimes I don't have fresh produce around, but I have been trying to do so more often. Maybe this goal will inspire me to keep that up until it becomes a habit.
I am also going to go for a walk every day. Even if it's just up and down the street. I want to maintain some sort of activity level all of the time outside of my cardio workouts at the rec, so I think a daily walk is an effective way to do this.
I changed my long term goals to be more about motivation, because although I am still motivated, I want to make sure I stay that way and that I stick with this program until I reach my ultimate goal of 120 lbs. That "time of the month" seems to be putting a bit of a damper on my overall motivation right now because although I don't really have any water weight "gain," per se, I have water weight plateau instead, which is a bit disappointing. I'm eating super low sodium today, so hopefully I will see more results when I weigh in tomorrow morning than I have been seeing for the past few days. (I am a daily weigher just because it helps keep me on track and motivated, but if I see a little fluctuation I don't see it as a big deal because I know there's no way it's fat weight in just 24 hours. I think if I was only weighing once per week I might see fluctuation as a bigger deal, so daily is what works best for me.)
