A wake-up for me

Sunday, May 30, 2010

Yesterday was a very busy day for me. I am a Kiwanian and yesterday was a fundraiser to help with one of the 3 scholarships were award each year. Our club runs a Food Booth and yesteday was one of our major events. By the end of the day we had made and sold 500 lbs of french fries, at least 300 cheeseburgers/hamburgers, 100 lbs of hotdogs and 30 grilled chicken sandwiches. We started a 8:30 AM and didn't finish until 4:55 that afternoon! I don't want to see or smell another hamburger or french fry for the next couple of weeks.

I did well, didn't overeat (would be easy since our food is free), drink lots of water-no soda, and had 1 french fry. Ate a healthy breakfast. But then came dinner. Blew most of my good intentions right out the door. Was so tired I didn't even log in my nutrition for the day. First time since I joined SP that I didn't log-in my nutritional info. I really let myself down.

Now for the wake-up. After reading the blogs of several other members, I realized that I may have set some of my goals to high. So I went through and reset some of the goals, deleated others and some new goals.

Then I got up, got dressed. Then Sasha and I went out to accomplish our first daily goal. I may have to split up my 30 minutes of walking a day, but Sasha and I got in 20 minutes. Going to save the last 10 to get my DH motivated about his own health.

The new and improved goals are more realistic and as I improve will be reset again.

    It is good to have goals and to review them. I started doing a small list of five a day and it feels good to accomplish what is on the list.
