December challenge - Goal of the Day
Friday, November 30, 2012
For the team I co-lead, I'm challenging us to post or journal a Goal of the Day and then post or journal our successes of the Day. That's a challenge for me, but one I'm looking forward to. I'm hoping a day-by-day approach will help us stay focused this month. What about you? Do you like daily goals or do you like focusing on goals over bigger spans of time?
I've been hanging at the same weight since May, give or take 3 pounds. I was thinking yesterday about how proud of myself I am because I've managed to keep 30 pounds off.
But I have 30 more to lose to get out of pre-diabetic status and give my joints much needed relief. Why do I find it easier to go to the gym for an hour every day than track my foods? Increasing exercise and eliminating wheat products gave me 2 more excuses to think I could handle eating without tracking, but I need the accountability. I'm at least 100 times less interested in doing the work of intuitive eating, identifying the emotions that may be causing me to over eat, and anything else similar to that. I need to either track my foods or track my emotional and intuitive states, so why not take the path of least resistance? Yay for finding some motivation! Blogging more often would probably help too, obviously. Sparking has been hard to keep up with since I moved, but I'm figuring out the adjustments I need to make, so a weekly blog may be a reasonable goal.
Since the weather forecast keeps calling for rain turning to showers and back again, I won't be on my bike much. No worries - my High Impact Intensity trainer is starting ongoing classes next week rather than waiting until January!
Have a great weekend, friends!
