1 Guinea Pig Down and 3 Elephants to Go

Saturday, June 21, 2014

...and about 4 to go if I'm going to reach my 5% challenge goal. The weight loss is important, but it's even more about firming up my healthy habits and routines. I'll especially need them when I travel to the US this summer.

I had three goals for this past week and only partially met two of them. I did lose another pesky pound, I did ST twice instead of three times, and I tracked except for the day-and-a-half I was away over the holiday on Thursday. There really was no reason NOT to track, I just didn't wanna. No more donwannas if I want to reach my goals for the challenge, and if I'm going to be successful during my travels!

I have three MAJOR ELEPHANTS now - non-weight-loss-related projects that need to be worked on this weekend, so I need to get at 'em and FOCUS!

Book translation - finish Chapter 4.
Prepare the lesson plans for both classes I teach on Monday.
Gather paperwork for the lawyer concerning the final deadline for ddad's estate.

Wish me well and have a good weekend!

    First step in tackling anything is realizing you have things you need to change. Kudos to you for being able to identify them. Best of luck in the new 5% challenge!

    emoticon It's good when we are honest with ourselves and admit that sometimes it didn't get done because we didn't want to do it. emoticon

    Yes, you'll want to lock in good habits before coming to the country of over-eating! I know you'll do it!

    Congrats on the loss, and you are right--the lifestyle is even more important than the scale. I'm still trying to get my feet back under me when it comes to the healthy lifestyle, I confess, so you are not alone at that struggle!
