One of the things I did not put down as a goal yesterday (but should have) is to spend an hour a day with my diet notebook. YES, I have an old-school composition book that I use daily.
But the hour is really just an umbrella for doing things like recording my food and exercise, researching recipes, Sparking, tracking goals, etc. Judith Beck of "The Beck Diet Solution" says you have to make time for dieting, and we all know that is right on. Sparking takes time. Planning meals and writing out grocery lists takes time. Recording and analyzing results takes time. Since I quit working I've got the time, I just need to direct it. I am looking for a countdown timer that I can put on my desktop so I can make sure I'm spending my full hour.
I'm pretty good about making the time to exercise, but not so good about planning or organizing or looking at the results of my efforts to tweak them in the right direction.
I had an AWESOME day yesterday and lost some good water weight as a result. Let the new year begin!
