October is here!

Monday, October 01, 2012

I'm taking on October with 2 focuses and they're all about 10's

10 glasses of water each day of the month! This is something I use to do faithfully, but have struggled with for a while! I KNOW how important proper hydration is and all the benefits, beyond just weight loss, that is provides! My plan of action is to fill the water jug I have to 80 oz each morning and make sure it's gone before I hit the pillow each night! I know from past experience it will only take a couple days of having to get up several times during the night to realize the importance of having all water consumed by 8pm! LOL!! Also know that after a few days of doing this it will become habit and my body will actually crave water!

10 minutes of planning each day! I know when I take time to be PREPARED for the next day I am most successful! Whether it's planning meals, making a grocery list, listing out ST exercises or deciding on the type of cardio to complete, I will spend 10 minutes on just ME!

These might seem pretty basic, but small changes are what create lasting habits! Once you start the forward motion it's easy to create more momentum!

    Keeping the goal steps to two for the month is a good idea as it does help build good habits. I like the idea of 10's. emoticon

    I too do so much better when I have prepared, I just have to be careful not to be too structured as I don't function well when I don't leave myself room to be spontaneous. Its a hard balance for me. Thanks for reminding me.
