burnout... spark action plan
Thursday, January 10, 2013
Spark Coach asked if I was feeling pessimistic, and I had to respond yes. I am so tired of trying and slipping up, never getting close to my goal. My New Year goal was ( is) consistency, but the first full week of the new year found me floundering in mental health mania, no sleep and no computer time. the ACTION plan was to revisit my goals, to prevent and intervene in burnout. My goal remains the same. I want to be consistently healthy. Which means, I eat and track to my calorie range, I walk 10,000 steps, and I work on projects instead of becoming a couch potato. So, the diet is pretty set, I need to avoid the break-room cookies, and I could measure more. This weekend, I am going "clean" to detox while the boys are away at winter camp. smoothies, detox tea, fruits, veggies and chicken. The steps means I need to go to the gym and treadmill for at least 40 minutes a day. this weekend there is a marathon gym class, and I am trying to get someone to go with me. the projects vary. I am working on a healthy scrapbook, and my vision collage. I can organize and clean ( which is what I did last night and this morning). I can be social. Tonight, I have a pampered chef party to go to. I don't know if all this adds up to weight loss, which is the overall goal, but it should be a bi-product of getting consistently healthy.
