I just finished the latest BLC here on SparkPeople. It was my third round and the least successful if all you're measuring is pounds lost. I think it was valuable time spent learning about myself. Especially how I handle stress. But enough about the past, I am looking to the future.
I am setting daily and weekly goals. I am old-fashioned, so I got out my Spark Journal and made a chart to check them off:
Track food--that means record (I use SP for this) everything I eat
Record calorie total for the day--good, bad, or ugly, I own it
Record fitness minutes--I am committed to minimum 15 minutes when I first get up
Post scripture--every morning on FB w/my thoughts about the message
Job done--what extra task did I accomplish that day
That's for the first week, then in following weeks I plan to add more columns--tapping, gratitude, me time,blogging, mileage, who knows.
Its not exactly a 10 day challenge like I've done in the past, more just a daily reminder of what I need to do to reach my goals. My brain is so adept at distraction that without this I would be merrily going down some other path that leads away from my goal.
I am grateful for all my Spark friends and examples, as well as for my family for their support. Its a great day for Sparking!
