Five Motivations

Thursday, May 27, 2010

Five motivations to help me stay focused thru the next ten weeks:

1. Make a grocery list before I shop, with meals that we will eat and not toss.
2. Plan whole foods meals for suppers.
3. Subsitute fresh fruit for (smash them first) processed goodies.
4. Log on to SP daily.
5. Complete exercise before work, when you have more energy.
6. Keep logging pedometer totals on calender.
7. Track nutrition daily.
8. Drink a quart of water in AM and again in the PM!
Keep water bottle with you.

    Hi Fran - It has been awhile and you probably don't remember me but we are on a team together and you invited me to be a friend back in January - emoticon , yup January. I am such a stickler for making sure I acknowledge everyone and not just add friends for the sake of adding, if you know what I mean.

    It was just meant to be that I do this as I love this blog and it is just what I needed for today. If you don't mind I would like to use it for my weekly challenge in the virtual walk/run team I lead.

    It is really nice to come to someone's page after 6 months and still see them active on Spark - keeps me motivated.

    Have a great night.

    This sounds like a fantastic plan. I love it!!! And I think it's time for me to do some short-term goal setting again too. It's such a great way to motivate. I wish you the very best of luck in following through on your goals.

    I too make a grocery list every time I go shopping for the meals I have planned to make for the week. It's twofold: helps me plan my meals out in advance, and I don't spend as much money because I only buy what I absolutely need, and avoid buying other stuff that I definitely don't need to have. I also keep a water bottle with me throughout the day. It holds 32oz so if I drink the whole thing twice, I've consumed by 8 glasses of water for the day, but lately I've been finding myself drinking the whole thing 3 times/day! Yay for extra water!
