I am very consistent about drinking at least 8 glasses of water, eating at least 5 servings of fruits and veggies, and exercising at least 30 minutes every day. I am really at the point where I am on auto-pilot with these healthy habits. My problem...consistently tracking what I eat. I do it most days, but I don't consistently do it every day and I don't always include everything.
I know this is the reason that I have been pretty much stuck in the same 10 pound back and forth range for the last few months. Time to step it up. Tracking is the habit I need to work on. When I do it, it works for me. I have done it enough to fully understand the benefits of doing it, so I don't need to be convinced that it is something I need to do. I know it is. What I need to do is to stop making excuses and make it a priority. I need to be honest with myself about what I am eating - EVERY DAY, not just when I am making good choices.
My plan is to commit to honestly track everything for the next week - seven days in a row. I will encourage myself to keep on track by blogging about it each day, knowing that I will receive encouraging comments from SP buddies as I do so. That is my plan, and I am sticking with it!
