How to have a good day. Tales From 100# Down

Tuesday, February 18, 2014

I've had a good day. It didn't just "happen". It took some planning, accountability and effort. So what did I do?

LAST NIGHT - I thought ahead and mentally planned my food for the day.

THIS MORNING - I set some goals for the day - specific ones.

ACCOUNTABILITY - I TOLD someone my goals and kept checking my list throughout the day to keep me on task.

EARLY ATTENTION - So often I leave my exercise til the end of the day then I'm too tired or too busy or something. I started whacking away at my cardio early in the morning and just kept at it throughout the day.

MOVEMENT - In addition to my cardio I stood up and did hip flexors, leg lifts, calf raises, modified jumping jacks etc. while watching TV.

FOOD CHOICES - I made BETTER choices and tracked everything.

WATER - I pushed it all day getting twelve 8 ounce glasses down.

REVIEW - I reflected at day's end (this blog) what I did that worked so well so that I can REPEAT it tomorrow.

Going for ANOTHER great day tomorrow!

    I love your account of your day's activities and planning. The statement that it didn't just 'happen' is what sticks in my mind. Thanks for the gentle reminder.

    Fabulous! Laying out a plan like this is what keeps us on track and accountable! I love your list and wish it was an acronym I could somehow remember to use.
Have a beautiful day!
