Small Stone of the Week - Dec 6 - 14

Thursday, December 05, 2013

I know. It's not Saturday yet. But I'm not willing to put this change in my daily goals until Sunday.

I've had to face a reality to day. I've met the "letter" of my goals for the past week, but not the "spirit".

So I'm switching things up to meet the spirit of my daily goals as well. Starting tomorrow. Plus I'm giving it an extra week to keep working on them

My goals for this week are:

Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day
Eat at least 3 servings of freggies daily
Track every bite of food on sparkpeople

And the addition to these to help me meet the spirit of these goals, not just the letter - to do them all by noon EVERY DAY. Or at least by the time I finish my lunch (by 1pm that day). Any later and it doesn't count.

I am also not going to let everything else that I have to do to move this mountain in front of me overwhelm me this week.

I am stressed out. Running might help. I'm not going to compromise these goals because of running though. If I run, that's simply a bonus. Period.

    Water is a struggle for me, especially on the weekends. I find that knowing how many ounces the bottle/cup I'm drinking of is makes me more conscious of whether I've been drinking enough or not. Keep going, you got it!

    You're doing great! Hang in there and soon those goals will be much easier. I'm not doing too good on my water and probably only averaging about 6 cups on a good day, but today is a new day!

I can feel your frustration.
Commitment is a good thing but don't let it take you over.
Continue to do your best at what ever you do. Sometimes, the best you can do will be just keeping up.
You are in this for life. Try to enjoy the trip.
Take care.
