routines

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

We all have routines that we engage in day to day. For me, after I start the sprinklers to water the lawn, I come in to the computer and check the news. Then I check weather for the day, e-mail and a few other regular sites. Next I do 30 minutes of exercise, jump in the shower and get dressed. Breakfast and 30 minutes of reading are next.

I've been doing this routine literally for years. When I am off my routine (e.g. my husband gets the the computer first...), it changes everything. So I figured, why can't I make routines out of my healthy eating plans. I know it'll take 30-45 days to create a new habit or change an old one. Guess what...it worked! I have been at this for 2 1/2 months. Okay, it was a challenge when out internet provider was so bad I couldn’t even get on the computer, but I figured out how to work around that. Yes, I had a stomach flu and couldn't eat for a day and a half, but I got right back on the horse to carry on. That's what winners do, right? I feel like a winner!! I have lost a pound a week and am thrilled to pieces. I just printed off the Sparkpeople business cards so I can start handing them out and I printed the doctor letter for when I go see my doctor next month. This can work!! I knew I needed the accountability that Sparkpeopel provides. And I love Coach Nicole. Now I have a new bunch of strength and cardio exercises that I can fit into my day. I just had to decide to take the chance! Thanks, Sparkpeople!!
