The 3-Day Streak

Friday, January 31, 2014

I'm starting to see how the spark streaks can really be an effective tool... Today I woke up thinking "I've been good for a while... what if I just fudge a bit?" Thankfully, the VERY loud internal response was "NO WAY!" I've worked hard and I'll keep working hard. Besides, the more days I add to my streak, the easier it gets to (a) learn my patterns and (b) fix the problems.

We went sledding today at the best little hill in town, which happens to be about 6 blocks away from my house. As we walked home from the hill, tired, hungry, and happy, I pulled both boys behind me (the roads aren't really plowed around here). I figured "let's just keep up the exercise!" I knew how much I wanted to eat for lunch because I'd already tracked my breakfast and snack.

I'm looking forward to the personal challenge of keeping this streak up: I'd like to make it the rest of the week having "good" days. Not so hard, right? I'm half way there!

    Woo-hoo! Glad to hear that you are sticking to your goal. Two things that I thought may be helpful for you - do you keep a journal? If you keep a journal, write down why you want to eat clean -healthy foods. Write down how you feel when you eat the clean-healthy foods. This may help you the next time you think to eat the junk food. Another thing that may be helpful is meditation. Meditation teaches you had to release the thoughts that are in your mind - teaches you to focus. During those moments where your mind takes over and says, "Eat junk food", you may be better able to push those thoughts out of your mind. These are some things that I have tried to help me and I thought they may be helpful to you to! Good luck!
