Despite cutting back on team activities to concentrate on the basics, I feel I'm ready to participate in a challenge this month. I did pretty well in September, but could have done better. Maybe focusing on one challenge that lasts one month will help.
For this challenge I have to set a goal for the month, find a weekly reward, pick a quote that moves me, blog about it all, and print this out so I can read it each day.
Goal for October: At least 3 days each week, (going to try for Tue, Wed, Thu) count my calories and keep them at 1400 or less. I will attempt to do this by not snacking at all on those days, by eating a small but healthy breakfast (oatmeal most likely), not eating out those days each week, and having only soup or a salad for at least 1 meal each of those days.
Reward: Each week that I accomplish this, I will give myself a goody, and if I accomplish it every week this month, then I will buy myself a new outfit (pants/top).
Quote: “Promise me you'll always remember:
You're braver than you believe,
and stronger than you seem,
and smarter than you think. "
-A. A. Milne
The quote is more sentimental than motivational, but I do really like it, and it makes me think of my son - which will motivate me to do my best.
