3) What are you doing to encourage yourself and keep on track?

Monday, March 04, 2013

For the 5% challenge we are to blog each day and answer a question on how we are doing in forming a new habit. Today's question -- 3) What are you doing to encourage yourself and keep on track? -- I think about this challenge and my goals. I like to help out my team and I like to see the emoticon emoticon next to my daily goals.

Today went well. I stayed on track both nutritionally and exercised in the morning and went to the gym in the evening.

Daily Goals:
1) Blog -- emoticon
2) Exercise at least 50 minutes. emoticon 120 min
3) Eat at least 5 freggies a day emoticon 5 servings
4) Instead of eating something unhealthy today, I will...remind myself of what my weight loss goal is for this week and ask if eating it would help me reach my goal.

    Good idea to stop and think before you eat instead of lamenting the factor afterwards!

    Gotta love those list-makers! I too love to check things off my list. You're on the right track of living in the moment and being 100% aware -- words of wisdom for us all. emoticon

    Yup we have to keep reminding ourselves our goals...I have a tendency to forget when I see something yummy or I feel stressed.... I am working on that too! emoticon emoticon

    As simple as it is, I like your last statement about asking yourself if eating a certain thing would help me reach my weight loss goal. I have to remember to ask myself!
Thanks for being our leader!! :)
