Goals, one week at a time.

Monday, January 14, 2013

Ok, last week was a down week for me, i was just in a funk. After a fabulous weekend with the family and a lot of soul searching i re-discovered my "Spark". After all i'm here to be a better healthier me for myself, my Hubby, My Friends and most importantly my Son. He is so full a love and energy. I was running around the park with him and at only 20 months he was pushing himself to keep up with me. We were having a blast!!! So here it goes, no more excuses i'm making three goals a week to stick to.

Goal #1 Walk everyday at lunch. I eat at my desk but rather than surf the net i'm getting out! Brought an extra pair of walking shoes to keep at work.

Goal #2 No RED Meat!! Easy

Goal #3 No adding sugars to my coffee. I usually put creamer that has sugar and 2 packets of sugar substitute...Bad, Vary bad. This morning i actually made my own coffee creamer with low-fat milk and non-fat condensed milk and left the extra sugar out.

    Love these goals, they are thought out and attainable. Especially the walk at work--it feels so good to just get up and go outside while at work--clears the head, too. Congrats on making these and having that good family around you for support and motivation! Keep on keeping on! You're doing emoticon !

  Nice job on focusing on the small steps. Even better that you're feeling refocused this week. You're worth it!

    Taking a lunch time walk is a great start. Some days a person really does need to get away from their desk, literally and figuratively. I've found that stress is a neglected aspect of weight gain. if a person could reduce their stress, they'd automatically reduce their waistline.

I do eat red meat, but rarely. I prefer chicken of pork. I think beef is getting awfully expensive. which is another reason I buy chicken or pork

I don't put sugar or sweeteners in my coffee. I've just used fat free milk or cream if I'm at someone's house. that's always been sweet enough for me.

    The Creamer was delicious, i used one 14oz can of condensed milk and 14oz of regular milk. I re-used a classico jar and shook it up. Very easy, very yummy. Last 10 days i heard.
