Motivation Monday

Monday, August 05, 2013

I've been off the rails for most of the last month. I'm not quite sure what happened with my July goals. I will check in on them later emoticon
I haven't set any August goals yet except to work on the August Challenge for A Book Club team. My personal goal there is to work on the house for at least 15 min per day.

I need to go back to faking it until I make it. That means I need to be more diligent in tracking and making good choices. Instead of eating the potato chips I want for breakfast, I need to choose the protein bar and fruit when I head down there soon. I can do this. I just need to remind myself that I made it below my 240 threshold in July, I CAN do it again in August! I have doctor's appointment later this month and I REALLY, REALLY want to be below 240 at that appointment, at least on my scale.

Funny reminder that it can be easy to fake it until it becomes real...

Goals for today:

emoticon Drink water and tea with a maximum of 8oz of juice or gatorade today-- Water and tea with 4oz of RC due to a migraine

emoticon Freggie with each meal and snack-Nope, I ate too many hazelnut wafers without a freggie.

emoticon Track everything today emoticon

emoticon Complete 3 reports-2 done

emoticon Get to the store for the painting items. -DH went instead

emoticon Go to the DMV for sticker-Not going to happen today

Have a healthy day!

    I did the same thing in July! It must be the hump in the year!

    What WAS it about last month?? I had a lousy month too. Off the rails is a good description of it. Glad to hear you're back on track. I'm making an effort at that too; maybe some of your motivation will rub off on me. Hope you have a healthy day too!
