COFFEELS's SparkPeople Blog COFFEELS's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community Tracking my time to make positive habits and hobbies Starting tomorrow I have decided I'm going to keep a journal of how I spend my time every day hour by hour. I want to eliminate activities that are not beneficial to myself or to anyone else. Right now I'm spending a lot of time on websites that are wasteful and make me "zone" out. I want to stimulate my mind more and keep active. I'm going to keep a journal and then every week write a blog and list out what activities I did. I also want to start back up with some of my hobbies including... Sat, 29 Oct 2016 00:40:50 EST Addicted to social media I spend entirely too much time online on sites that do not benefit my quality of life or general well being. My goal is to not use Facebook for the month of November and I'm going to start early. I like connecting with old friends but it has become a bad habit and I constantly check my phone. I am going to spend more time reading and spending time outdoors. I'm sure my dogs will like more walks. I have to remember how much time I spend and how bad it's making me feel. I compare myself t... Tue, 25 Oct 2016 00:28:20 EST Saturday Plan 1. Let myself sleep in. :) I have a cold and could use some sleep. <BR> 2. Meet my friend at Panera AND track my calories. <BR> 3. Set aside 2 and half hours afterwards to clean. I want to schedule this weekly so I can get it done and not have to worry about it the rest of the week. It feels good to have a clean house. <BR> 4. Do my Bible study. <BR> 5. Read and eat soup that I made today - and track it of course. <BR> <BR> <em>334</em> <em>334</em> <em>334</em> <em>334</em> <... Fri, 14 Oct 2016 23:26:53 EST Focusing I tracked again today. I felt so hungry when I got home from work so I am going to try something new tomorrow. I am going eat a small lunch around 11 and then another small lunch around 2 and see if that helps. <BR> <BR> I feel like I'm getting really distracted by social media and am having trouble focusing on my work throughout the day. I my email and facebook too many times and it is really distracting. I'm going to try and only log onto facebook for 20 minutes in the evening and no... Wed, 5 Oct 2016 20:35:38 EST Tracking Food I was able to track everything I ate today and I am feeling more in control of my weight loss. It definitely helps to track and not guess that I'm eating the appropriate amount of food. I've been doing well eating whole foods but I was still eating too much so I was not losing weight. Now that I've made it through a day tracking I can begin to adjust the amount of food that I eat. I am really looking forward to losing this weight!!! <BR> <BR> I am looking forward to making small changes ... Tue, 4 Oct 2016 20:42:14 EST
