Fall 5% Challenge Assignment 8

Monday, September 24, 2012

List YOUR reasons/excuses on why YOUR diets and exercise plans have not been well executed in the past. OK that might be too long a list, so give 3 or 4 reasons and for each write a strategy that will keep you on track for 8 weeks. Let's learn from our past behaviors and make this our best Challenge ever!
1. lack of planning. Hectic life style. too much time on SP. Too many emails to respond to.
~~~~ I have weaned my friends list, and my teams that I am a part of.
~~~~ I will have basic food available to eat
~~~~ I will make exercise a priority first thing in the morning.
~~~~ I am not good at making menus, but I will work on that.
~~~~ Since the last challenge I have created a grocery list, that I can just fill out before I go, and can easily figure out what to buy.
~~~~ Limit time on SP daily, and actually do the stuff that will better my health, than to just sit and type. It is okay NOT to respond to emails.

    Good insights into the area you need to work on. Planning is so crucial. I do best with menus. They get me through the times when I'm tired or crunched for time because the menus help me plan and prep ahead. I don't waste time dithering over what sounds good or not having time to fix what I want, when I plan ahead. This is an area I am going to work on, too.
    Spark time helps me to stay motivated and focused.

    Great ideas/goals.

    I actually made myself a pre-printed shopping list that I run off of my computer and just check off the items that I is organized by categories. Makes life much simpler.

    A four-week, printed rotating menu saves a lot of time, also!

    It is also easier for me to do all my cooking at one time and have it all prepared and ready to go in the fridge for hubby and I to heat up. I usually portion it out into containers...that makes it so much easier!

    I just want to get in and out of the kitchen as quickly as possible!
