Things that help me stay on track.

Saturday, December 22, 2012

Some days I perform better than others and I must admit I have noticed that there are underlying reasons therefore I thought of making a list:

1. Exercising first thing in the morning
2. Healthy breakfast
3. Listening to music first thing in the morning
4. Eating healthy snacks between meals
5. Receiving a compliment
6. Hearing from someone I like
7. Getting good results on the weekly weigh-in
8. Busy schedule
9. Not sitting with people while they are eating when I am not
10. Helping others

So these are the things that I have recognized I am sure there are more and everytime I discover a new one I'll make sure I make a note out of it. I do realize that some of them are under my control and others I have no control over. Exercising first thing in the morning is definitely a big one for me; when I do exercise first thing it's like I've gotten a chore ticked off my list and not having to worry about it for the rest of the day and I tend to be more positive I also do not have to try to squeeze it in after a long day when I am too tired or lazy.

    these are good points. I forget about not sitting with people while they eat unless I have something (puzzle or such) to keep my hands busy

    I'm still trying to get number one consistent in my life. And I'm talking just 10 minutes, for now! This is a good month to do it.

    I to exercise in the morning. Now that the holiday season is upon us I can see what really keeps me on track. It is a normal day, with no goodies, no company and no shopping for gifts. I can not wait for January 2.
