What I REALLY Did and What I SHOULD Do!

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

On the BLC23, we were asked to write a blog about what we did in the 4th week and what our plans are for week 5. So I am going to tell you what the plans were for week 4, what REALLY happened and what I HOPE will happen next week.

Plans for Oct. 16-22
1. walk more
2. eat better
3. do not procrastinate

What REALLY happened Oct. 16-22
1. walked - about the same as Oct. 9-15
2. ate out 2x, and both times were not healthy at.all.
3. Procrastinate? ME? oops - that's why I'm ripping through this assignment at 12AM!

What I hope to have happen Oct. 23-29
1. add ST to regular workout
2. do not finish others' unfinished food! (UFF to you out there)
3. Do It NOW!!!

hopefully, putting it in writing will improve this coming week. only time will tell...

    correct wording should not be: "What I hope to have happen Oct. 23-29" (I am not writing this to critisise, but to give you an idea.)

Erase "hope" and replace with "what I have decided will happen."

Do not let wishful thinking be your goal, but make a firm decision of how to make the change. You will be surprised about how rephasing your goals will have an effect on YOU.

    Analysis is the first step in change! I know this week will be better for you, and I am already enjoying your stepped-up time on our chat thread!

    The 12am procrastination bit made me chuckle.
Keep after it. We'll get there.

  Marla - That you are doing this assignment is in itself a VICTORY. We learn from the stumbles we make and move forward. Keep your eyes on the finish line and step by step you will get there.

    I'm sorry; I shouldn't laugh but when I read the title to your blog I figured that what happened happened. Aaagh. That being squawked I will say that it took lots of courage to admit the reality - lots and lots of courage. In the anonymity of our own home on our own computer (or even a public computer in the library) we are only as honest as we let ourselves be which means that our warts and blemishes - need to be unveiled in order to be cleaned up - grrrrrr....Here's to an improved week. Remember - if you eat out twice this week and you only do not so good once it'll be better than this past week. emoticon

    Putting it in writing Marla is like a contract for me. I think this will help in your procrastinating as well. We are are own worst enemy. I will help you as much as I can to get you through this. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
