Setting goals

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

Today was a good day. I tracked my meals and went for a walk in the evening. I'm feeling better already and my cold is almost gone (fingers crossed!). It was such a lovely weather outside, crispy and cool. It's been unseasonably warm here lately but now it's suddenly changed for unseasonably chilly. I don't mind though, it was really refreshing to walk outside in the cool air after being inside sick for a couple of days.

As I'm now restarting my program, I'm going to focus on three small goals for the next two weeks as I did during FastBreak. My goals are:

1) Track your meals. [x]
2) Go for a walk each day. [x]
3) Write in a journal. [x]

Doable and yet challenging! Especially the first goal. It's fairly easy to track during the week but I've always found it challenging on the weekends. I know I can do it though, and I know it'll make a world of difference.

Today's calories: 1695

I took this picture on my evening walk. It's beautiful, isn't it? :)

    I too am having to reset goals and plans since this year has been a bit of a mess with so much stuff going on. But I have done it before and I can do it again. At least I continued to watch my eating and now I just have minor tweeking to do and not a full on rebirth. LOL Just do it and be happy.

    Yes, it is beautiful. Your country has such history and fantastic scenery to enjoy. emoticon for sharing the sights with us via your pictures. I am inspired by your goal to walk; I've been shut inside because of back pain if I'm on my feet for long, but now that weight is coming off and I feel better, I need to follow your example and get outside to appreciate nature. -- Lou
