Small Goals, Small Goals, Small Goals

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Choices today = progress tomorrow has been my watch phrase for the last two weeks. I am setting small goals and usually obtaining them. 1. Water, 2. 10 mins exercise, 3. ME TIME.

So small goals of water are the easiest. I've already gotten to the point that my body is dry overnight and I dont WANT anything else. Plus carbonation upsets my stomach.

Small goal of 10 mins of exercise not so good. Better than I have ever been, so I'll take that.

Small goal of Me Time - do well when I exercise ( two for the price of one) not so much when I don't exercise. This is the hardest one for me.

    Small goals are what got me here today. I started out so simply. I just started switching out half my pasta for whole wheat, and cutting portions. Everything else naturally evolved from there! Next came whole wheat bread, then aiming to following the government food plate (half vegetables!), exercising at least 10 minutes a day... then more, and more! And now, I'm making real, measurable progress in my life!

Making small, sustainable changes is how we succeed. The Biggest Loser makes great TV, but it's a cruddy way to live.

    Amen to that VLKSHA! My boys are 9 and 11 and they (along with my husband) STILL interrupt me in the bathroom! :)

    Funny the things you learn to call your me time to fit them in... any early morning time before the house is awake is mine - even if I waiste it or fall back to sleep on the couch.

(Heck, if I get time in the bathroom without my 6 yr old visiting me, it is me time.)

Sometimes, it is just how you look at your time.

    Sounds reasonable! Small goals are so much easier to meet.

Even so, I still haven't been able to be consistent with only 5 minutes of stretching (I think I'm doing it wrong)

What do you do for "me time"?

Keep up the good work!
