Accomplishing the Small Things
Tuesday, September 06, 2011
I should be rushing off to school in a bit, but I missed my morning cardio, so I'm just visiting SparkPeople for a moment to keep me motivated. Funny thing is I finally got the Getting Started Trophy and it reminded me of Fast Breaks. I didn't really keep up with them when I first started, but I thought I would try again.
Here are my new and existing goals:
Write in a journal 3 times per week : 1x / day
-I've been bad about this, but accountability and support come into play with this goal. This is one reason, even though I'm a bit short on time today, I decided to post an entry. Even if no one else reads it, it gives me an outlet and a gauge on my progress.
Pack My Lunch the Night before : 5x / week
-I work as a field technician, so if I want lunch, I either have to find time to rush home, pack my own lunch to eat in the car, or, unfortunately the most common, eat fast food. I'm gonna find time in the day to actually make and pack a sandwich and snacks to eat throughout the day. My biggest hang up in the past has been sandwiches get boring after a while... So ultimately, I must find myself some variety... But for now, it's just about consistency.
Eat a healthy breakfast : 1x / day
-I work mornings and I'm not a morning person... Often I rush off to work without a good breakfast, and this also makes me susceptible to eating fast food later in the day. My hope is to wake up early for cardio and be able to eat a good breakfast afterwards.
Do some yard work or gardening each day : 1x / day
-This is a new and exciting goal for me now that we've moved into a new house. Not only is it needed, but I'll be able to track it as exercise as well. As much as I'm looking forward to it, I feel like it's a good goal to be reminded of because often I get into the mentality of, "I shouldn't do this because it's not intense enough" and then stress and not do anything at all...
We'll see how this week goes. Kind of bummed that the SparkPeople app doesn't track Fast Breaks, but it gives me another reason to visit the site more often.
