So, during the fast break stage I'm supposed to create extremely easy goals for motivation, nutrition, and fitness. I've thought a lot about this and I've made a list of goals I think will work.
1. Nutrition: I'm going to eat a piece of fruit with at least two meals a day. I'm still supposed to track what I eat without worrying about how many calories I'm consuming, which is kind of difficult but I know eventually I'll take that step up so I'm just going to enjoy it for now.
2. Fitness: I'm going to drive to the gym three days per week after I get off from work. I don't have to workout or anything, but I have to drive there. This will get me in the habit of going after work, and eventually I'll work up to working out.
3. Motivation: I'm going to spend 2 hours per week doing something that I love doing, and is in no way related to my journey, school, or work. That's right, I'm going to allow myself to have "me time" and I'm not going to feel the least bit guilty about it.
So there are my goals easy, achievable, and posted on my bathroom mirror so I see them daily. It was actually harder to come up with easy, smaller goals because I know what my overall goals are & I just want to get there today, but I'm learning the importance of starting small.
