Back to Basics

Monday, January 20, 2014

I have really been off track the past two weeks. I won't dwell on it, but I do feel guilty. I am thinking of positive things whenever the guilty feeling hits me. Life is too short to waste time on guilt. I decided to not weigh myself since this would probably be bad news and upset me, which would lead to more eating.

But it is a new day, so.... moving on....

My goals for this week are going to be simple and few. I tend to make too many goals and then I don't do any of them because I am easily overwhelmed.

1. Stay within my calorie range
2. Drink 8 glasses of water
3. Exercise at least 20 minutes
4. Paint rocks 3 times this week
5. Log in to Spark every day

That's enough for this week... I will focus just on these.

  That is a lot. Way to focus and get right back on track. So important to avoid the negative track. Instead you made real and doable action plans for this week. I applaud you!

    I agree, simple Maybe for me keeping it simple makes it impossible to spend time and energy on the less important things. It keeps my focus on what's critical. And I think you've nailed MY list as well with your #1-#3 and your #4. ...I don't know about painting rocks, but I'm willing to try! :)

Hope you have a beautiful day today, my friend.

:) Gail

    I get off track too when I try to make too many changes at once. Just focus on a few until they become habit, then move onto the next. emoticon emoticon
