Report Card for 500 Days - Fourth Quarter Term

Monday, June 24, 2013

Several areas of this past interval need improvement. I did not plan ahead for food choices and my portions were often too large. Overall I stayed on a plateau, except for a half-pound gain this past week.

Healthy choices of this past interval are as follows: lots of outdoor activity such as hiking, bike riding, gardening, and yard work. Sticking to healthy food choices when grocery shopping. Enjoying acts of kindness. Keeping an attitude of hopefulness and gratitude to God. Staying optimistic about my long-term plan for health and fitness.

In my original plan I had a different word for section 5, Enrich, but I am choosing to use ELEVATE instead. It fits better with my recent thoughts about goals and training, preparation and strength, whether physical, emotional, spiritual, or mental.

    ELEVATE....::::: emoticon Word!
    I have to say that you have done quite well.....:::for camping/hiking as much as you have. How easy it is to let goals slide, but with YOU - not a chance. Your plateau is a testimony to me that I too can be on a vacation away from my usual comfort zone and NOT GAIN! emoticon ...:::so I applaud you and cheer emoticon you on as you elevate even further!
