So I'm finding myself, oddly, wanting to set a goal for the month! I say that's odd because I usually don't do too well with goals. It seems like once I set it, I do everything I can to sabotage it. So I'm not going to be foolish about it, and I'm going to set ONE very small goal. I can do this!!! (What is truly encouraging me that I most certainly CAN do it is the one I set for my AB team back in November to not touch the candy jar the entire month...and I accomplished my goal! I actually did so well with it, I carried it into December and successfully completed it then too. So yeah, I CAN achieve a goal if I keep it simple).
So my goal for April is to track all my food at least 3x a week. I know I am eating way too many calories for the level of activity I can currently accomplish. I should be keeping it towards the bottom of my calorie level, but more often than not when I am tracking I'm going OVER my calories. No excuse for that and it is a road I don't want to be on.
To keep me accountable to my goal I am going to report on it here each Monday morning through April.
I'm horrible at rewards, so if I accomplish this goal I am going to not just give myself a pat on the back or tell myself I'm going to get something and never get it (this is the usual for me)...I am going to FOLLOW THROUGH and get myself a new nail polish. Something spring/summer and fun!
Alright, day one - I've tracked mostly everything for the day so far and even took some stuff off because it was skyrocketing already. It's amazing how tracking actually changes my eating, in a good way, and yet I resist doing it so much. No more. April is going to be MINE!!
What are you going to do to make April yours???
