What I'm Doing Different

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

I'm already starting off on the wrong foot and I know it. But I plan to play catch up. I've been a member of since around this time last year. Shortly, after I stopped logging in and often forgot all about it. I later joined another site and did quite well; only because I did exactly what I was supposed to do... LOG IN. I have found that in my battle of the bulge, LOGGING IN, JOURNALING and KEEPING TRACK of my food is what works for me. I don't like to commit to ANYTHING!! I know me. I tend to get side tracked rather quickly. But I'm committing to this. To improving my health. I am making the commitment to my health and logging in SOMETHING everyday. My goal is to log my food, water intake, moods, exercise, ANYTHING daily. And I also plan to blog at lease once a week.

Here are my plans for the rest of the week (planning is key right?).
1)Planning my menu for the next 7 days so that I can shop and eat accordingly
2) Workout at least three days next week.

    It's not the most glamorous ritual but it WORKS!

    I have found if I do the tracking, do the blogging etc it just works!

    Best of luck to you!

    Those are important goals. You can do it. Like you, I hate to commit to things especially around weight. My solution is that I found ONE thing I could commit to - I apply ONE RULE and it works in every area of my life. The rule is to ask myself the question, "Is it better than it would have been in the past?" The why or way this works is that it is almost anything can be evaluated on that scale. Some examples:

    I ate 2 doughnuts - WELL, in the past I would have had 6 or a dozen, is 2 less and therefore BETTER?? YES, therefore I SUCCEEDED.

    I ONLY exercised for 5 minutes - WELL, in the past I might not have done ANY exercise therefore 5 minutes is BETTER than what it MIGHT have been, therefore I SUCCEEDED again.

    The best part of this is that the criteria for being BETTER keeps raising the bar and therefore in order to SUCCEED, I have to keep getting BETTER than in the past, but also better than NOW too.
