Phase 6: Unlearning: Smoker? Carb addict? Couch potato? Doormat? What unhealthy behavior do you want to remove from your life? Identify and make it so.
Day 51 Weigh in/Decide what you can improve from Phase 5 (Friday, December 2, 2011)
I weighed in at 223.5 lbs this morning.
And I am going to improve my consistency. I think I am seeing a theme/pattern.
Day 52 Identify unhealthy habits you want to break (Saturday, December 3, 2011)
Hm. I can think of lots of healthy habits I want to add to my life, but unhealthy habits to break are more difficult.
I'm working on keeping myself from picking at my feet or my toenails. That's a really important one for me. It's actually why I took up knitting and crocheting in the first place!
I do have a tendency to reach for the carbs when I'm bored - still - and I always want candy when I'm upset or depressed. I would like to change that for sure.
And procrastination is a biggie for me, I guess. *sigh* It's not always just because of my ADHD. Sometimes I procrastinate because I am avoiding something. So I would like to stop doing that.
Day 53 Identify and release regrets (Sunday, December 4, 2011)
I regret not being as "on top of things" around the house as I should have been during the last month or so.
I regret not being as active since it got cold as I was in the summer.
I regret losing my temper over little things that aren't really all that important.
And I am not going to worry about these things anymore. They are in the past. I will merely try to do better going forward.
Day 54 Perform a random act of kindness (Monday, December 5, 2011)
I was in town on Monday, but I don't remember if I did anything incredibly special while I was there. I probably let someone go ahead of me at an intersection or something, though. I do that a lot, so I don't know if it counts.
Day 55 Post something inspirational (Quote, photo, song lyrics) (Tuesday, December 6, 2011)
"Three failures denote uncommon strength. A weakling has not enough grit to fail thrice." - Minna Thomas Antrim
Day 56 Drink an extra 16 ounces of water (Wednesday, December 7, 2011)
This means three bottles of water instead of two. I'm about half-finished my first. We'll see how this one goes...
**Nope, didn't make it. Owell. Maybe the next phase?
Day 57 Try a new fitness activity (Thursday, December 8, 2011)
This one is always a bit of a question mark for me, but today I did it! I tried winter running for the first time, and I didn't do intervals I just set a goal and ran to it and then walked home. It was hard, and cold, but I did it and I am very proud of myself! Now I just need to stop coughing...
Day 58 Identify something you like about your personality (Friday, December 9, 2011)
I like my stick-to-it-iveness. I suppose some would call it stubbornness. I don't give up easily. I am determined to make things happen!
Day 59 Review food and fitness logs to be sure you're logging accurately
Day 60 Examine phase 6 victories
