So I got distracted...probably happens to the best of us (at least that is what I tell myself to try to feel better emoticon)

I have been so busy tracking, planning, shopping for and preparing healthy meals, thinking about working out, setting goals, etc...that I got lost in the planning and distracted from the execution.

I know the right things to do and have excellent plans but when it comes time to eat well, sleep well, work out hard, and take phenomenal care of myself...I keep coming up short.

I have been distracted by movies, cleaning, facebook, online dating, kids projects, budgeting, Christmas planning, work and even SparkPeople. It is easy to think about working out and a whole other thing to actually do it.

So I have decided that until Christmas, each day I am giving myself 5 gifts

1. 8 glasses of water
2. 1 healthy breakfast
3. 30 minute workout
4. 8 hours of sleep
5. quiet time with my bible

My goal is to be 10 pounds lighter by Christmas and I know the rest will keep me recharged! For 30 days, no distractions!

    I know how easy it is to get distracted even by SparkPeople, so much that I often have to set a timer so I don't forget about the time. Those are great gifts you are giving yourself.

    Great blog!! I know what you are saying about being distracted. I was fortunate to switch career paths in August and while I really love my new job, my schedule has taken a shift for the worse. I have gotten off kilter and need to get back on. I got on the scale this morning and we won't even talk about that....BUT....you have a great plan. I am going to adopt most of your suggestions as well. I can tell you that because of my job and the schedule I have, I can't always get 8 hours of sleep every night, but I will try to get 8 hours a day which may mean taking naps. Thanks for the boost!! I really appreciate it. emoticon
