Working on my Streaks and finding out my problem areas.

Saturday, December 21, 2013

Last time I wrote about how I was going to work on three Streaks per month in order to establish once and for all healthy habits. My Streaks this month were ,
1. Give my self a Pamper Mission each day . Some small time and some small thing to make myself feel important and loved .
2. Eating within range 4 out of 3 days , I know this sounds too lax but I thought with the Holiday season here , I should pick a super easy goal just to get some success under my belt .
3.Meet my weekly Calorie burn set by Spark People.
I figured I would blog about this in case this idea works and I can finally break through this up 3 pounds down 3 pounds I have been stuck at for months and maybe if it works for me , It can work for others .
Even with theses super easy goals , I have been having issues , but I am learning why I am having these issues and hopefully I can wisely pick the next three to work on that will add to the previous 3 I will continue to do . I am calling it 39 steps and so next month will be 36 steps and so on .
My problem areas have been .
1. When I let myself have free range at holiday parties , Its harder to get back on track the next few days.
2, I dont seem to have a problem with exercise so I think my next set of Streaks should do with eating , I am an emotional eater.
3. I have yet to find my diet soul mate ! I used to belong to Weight Watchers and really did well because I had my Ladies ! I am a team player and always loved the idea checking in each week and talking about how it went . I havent really come across anyone yet that is as needy as me in this area ! Although I have met some wonderful people here at Spark and have some wonderful and supportive friends.Should I keep on looking for that perfect team or person or should I just come to the conclusion that perhaps I am putting to much emphasis on doing things as a team ?
I have learned is that negative self talk is so lethal to a persons well being both mentally and physically . I have cut that down by 80 percent I would say and I feel so much better ! I also have learned that my Streaks are puzzle pieces that will interconnect with each other to give stability to my bigger picture . I really do get inspiration from many people here even though they aren't personally talking to me, I am one of the people privileged to have them as my Spark Friend :)

    This is a series of building blocks that sounds very good. You are making these changes manageable by doing them in this way and I feel sure that this will work for you. Writing down each article of food with an approximate calorie level can also work especially at the end of the day if you feel peckish and are not sure what to have.

A great blog here and I for one KNOW you can do this.

Cheers, love and seasons greetings to you and your folks.

    You have a plan, I say go for it. Now I need to be telling myself that lol. I can have one and just can't seem to follower through. But I'm not giving up. Keep us up and how you're doing.
