  • I need to start again and focus on just one thing at a time.

    what should it be? eliminating things I know are not good for me to eat? Just one food item a month? 3 a month? or for 6 months?

    or should I focus on adding 10 minutes of fitness into every day?


    Suggestions anyone?
  • I have a goal set to walk my dog Benny a minimum of 4 times for a period of minimum 15 minutes each.
  • I'm not good at the rewards thing either - meeting my goals is pretty satisfying. But I need to do a better job and scheduling in the time to meet my goals, and SparkPeople is helping me start to enlist support. I have a couple teams here that really really help.
  • Good points, thanks.
  • I think this challenge is just what I need.
  • looking forward to a improved me this year!
  • I am trying this new challenge to help myself get back on track.

  • I enjoyed the article -very timely and informative. And I especially appreciate the permission to be kind to myself and not expect perfection. This too often has been my nemesis. If I stumble in my quest I'm in good company - about 100% of humanity.
  • My favorite Zig Ziegler quote "when people tell me motivation never lasts, I tell them bathing doesn't either, that's why I recommend it daily". I need to make this my mantra.
  • Overall, a good article. But I don't believe in rewarding myself for something I should be doing. That's like rewarding myself for cleaning the house or doing the laundry.

    More and more I am embracing the concept of persistence over perfection. This is a kinder and more realistic attitude for me to embrace because I want this behavioral/attitudinal change to effectively carry me through the rest of my life.
