Hi SparkFriends! Time for another attempt at tracking my goals. Because doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result is the definition of insanity. And I've been known to be a little kooky every now and then!!
Seriously, though, the name of the game is accountability. And since I am less than accountable in this area, it's high time I figure it out. So here they are:
#1 - Log that food! The ultimate test of accountability. I have stopped logging. I have stopped losing. Coincidence? I think not. The other day I thought, "maybe I should start logging my food again." Then I immediately responded to myself, "No way! I had cake for breakfast. I don't want anyone to see that!!" Hello, big red warning flags. (Pay no attention to that talking to myself thing...remember - kooky!) It's time for everyone to be able to see the good, the bad, and the ugly. And then maybe it will stop.
#2 - Run, run, run! I have a 5k on Thanksgiving. I have not done much running since September 8. I've done other things, so I'm hoping I can pick it back up easily enough, but perhaps a few practice runs before the race would be a good idea. Shooting for 3 runs per week: speed, hills, & endurance.
#3 - Homework. Keeping up with my homework is boring and feels like a total waste of my time. But it's not. It's important. Really, really important. It will keep me from having to panic in December when finals come up. I repeat, daily homework is important. I must do my homework. It's important. (How many times do you have to repeat something before it sinks in?)
That will do it for this month. Nothing too extravagant - just the basics right now.
