Motivation is what

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

gets you started; Habit is what keeps you going! (Jim Ryun) I saw this quote on the internet this morning.

I noticed that some SparkFriends have daily or weekly goals they set. So I'm going to try this.

I feel comfortable with my diet and exercise. My problem is water. I love swimming it; hate drinking it. So my goal for this week is to drink 24 ounces of water each day. emoticon I know that this isn't the amount that doctors suggest you drink each day. But trust me - it's MORE than I normally drink. If I try to jump right into 64 ounces, I won't do it. I need to work towards that ultimately goal SLOWLY.

    Starting small with a doable goal for you is perfect. Have you ever thought of adding something like Crystal Light or Mio to your water to make it taste better to you? I have a Spark Friend who swears by the Mio additive as a great incentive to get her to drink all her water with no caloric negative effects. Getting down what you can is all you can do. Keep up the good work and effective goal setting. I wish you great success with this goal. Take care and God bless, Deb

    emoticon I agree with starting small I found that after a while I would crave it.
Good Goal!

    Great goal for yourself. You can do it!

For me I like drinking water, but sometimes I have a hard time getting 64 oz in a day. I would fill up a bottle and some how, nurse it all day. One day I thought I would try a different tactic...I filled up an 8 oz bottle and finished it right away, then another and another. Before I knew it I had exceeded what I wanted to consume without thinking about...man I have to drink another so many ounces.
