Hey everyone! I just wrote a blog yesterday, but I figured I'd write again today. I've been putting off setting goals, cause I'm just not sure what kind of small goals I should set for myself. I've got my final weight loss goal, but still trying to figure out short term goals. Does anyone have any suggestions? I know I want to avoid fast food for as long as possible, but how do I put that in a short term goal form? What other short term goals should I have?
Feeling lots better today. Cough is still hanging on, but my energy and positive attitude are back. Had to work today (I'm a Special Care Aid, or Nurse's Aid) and it was a good day. Still waiting for the sun to come out - it's been hiding for a few days now. I usually suffer from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) so not seeing the sun all day is depressing for me. I do take medication for depression/anxiety, and vitamin D helps the SAD, but I really really wanna see the sun!
I've been doing the Healthy Eating challenge, and really enjoying it. I think the biggest change I've made is planning our weekly menu. It's not only helped with the grocery bill and not having to throw out spoiled produce, but it's REALLY helping me to avoid fast food. Having something planned and ready to go takes away my excuse of "I don't know what to make, and nothing's thawed out, so we might as well get take-out." Can't do that when you already have a plan in place! It's working wonderfully. I DID have pizza the other day, cause my hubby was craving it, but I kept it reasonable. I don't think I've ever gone this long without McDonald's! At least not in several years! Go me!
One more week, and I'll be done with the Healthy Eating Challenge, and I'm gonna move on to the 28 day boot camp. YEAH BABY!!!
Take care everyone!
