It was a productive day for me! Writing my goals down just for today instead of the whole month definitely helped, although I would still like to find a way to have more of a long-term vision in terms of where I want to be overall. It's interesting, because my weight loss goals also work better for me when I take a week at a time instead of trying to set long-term goal dates.
As I thought, I set too many goals for one day (especially starting after 1 pm), BUT it's all a learning experience, right? In the future I am not going to list more than 8 goals per day.
1. Walk the dog at least 15 minutes.
26 minutes @3.0 mph/ 1.32miles (167 calories burned!) Carmella is getting healthier, too, since her little Shih Tsu legs ran the whole way, and she circled around me multiple times.
2. Strength training.
Goal not met, but I'm okay with that since I got a lot of cardio in.
3. Track my food.
I am actually a bit under in calories and got 6 veggies in. I may eat a bit more later just to hit my calorie level to keep my metabolism up.
4. Cut down the flowers in the backyard.
There are still more to cut down, but I filled 4 lawn and garden bags and worked for 110 minutes (825.66 calories burned!), so I'm counting this as a definite win, especially since it started hailing in the middle of my yard work but I didn't quit.
5 Run the gas out of the lawnmower.
I got ambitious and didn't just run the gas out, but actually mowed the lawn. 30 minutes / 309.62 calories burned!
7. Wash the dishes
8. Make appt. with neurologist.
I called but he was out of town. I left a message for him to call me when he returns on 11/4, so that counts!
9. Type up list of scavenger hunt items for my daughter's party.
Not yet done, but I may do this later tonight depending on how I feel. If I don't get to it, I'm not going to stress about it.
10. Clean the litterbox
I would love to know how one of my cats manages to pee OUTSIDE the litterbox, even when the hood is on!
11.Scoop the dog poop.
12. Get the garbage out.
13. Organize the mail on the family room table.
Not done, but I'm okay with that. Since the most urgent outside work was done today, I'm going to focus on the inside work tomorrow.
