December Goals and Plans

Saturday, December 08, 2012

I've been sitting here reading...working on inspiring myself for the day and the weekend. I think I'm there. I can see how, in the past, I have worked through my goals and plans in my blogs and it has made a difference. You really have to have a plan in order to follow-through on a plan.

It's Saturday and this weekend really needs to be a productive one. I need to give plasma this morning, get cleaning and decorating for Christmas done today and tomorrow, and I need to stay in range with my eating throughout. I have been battling a lot with my eating. I have seen and recognize a pattern that takes place. First, I am fine...eating in range. Then, I have a little snack item here or there. Then, all day grazing. Then, the binge. Then, I get back on the wagon and start the cycle over again.

Before, when I was losing weight more consistently, I was eating in range all day every day. I might have had a snack or two...but they were always counted and did not throw me out of range. I did no grazing. And I definitely did not binge. So, my first goal for the rest of December is to eat in range...record everything.

Also, I would like to make sure I am getting my water in. Now that I am not drinking the Diet Cola's as often, I am not getting my liquid consumption in either. I think if I just have a tall glass of water with each meal and in the evening, it will be fine. I usually have 16 oz when I drink. Then, hopefully, I will get hooked on that and consume more.

I want to guard my sleep during December. I know with the busy-ness of the season comes the temptation to skimp on sleep. I did that the other night and it backfired on me. The next day I was exhausted...and the grazing began. So, I really need to make sleep a priority as well.

My last goal for December is going to be freggies. I want to try to get in at least 4 a day. With the Christmas goodies around...there are so many sweets...so many carbs. I could go all day with no freggies easily. I really don't want to do that.

I am hopeful that, with this 4-step plan/goal, I can get through December unscathed...and am really hopeful to leave 180-ville here in the year 2012 forever. So let it be written...so let it be done!

Hope you all have a great weekend! Keep up the good work! Thanks for the encouragement! Spark on! emoticon emoticon

    Great plan. I am working on some of the same things. December is a very treacherous month of me and I have to guard against blowing all my hard work.

    emoticon Tracking everything is the key even if you go over range as then you can always cut back a little the next day or week ....at least that has worked for me! emoticon

  Great that you are no longer on diet soda. What about having a tall glass of water BEFORE that snack and see if you don't snack more mindfully and don't binge at all.
