The Challenge: 5 Goals

Monday, October 04, 2010

So, in one of my SparkTeams, this week's challenge is to create a blog post with five goals for October. This is mine.

emoticonTrack my food intake on weekends.
I'm horrible about this. I tend to get on SparkPeople at work, and so I don't track my weekends very well. I even have a phone app, but does it help? Not really.

emoticon Create a snack plan.
I am actually not good at snacking. Not because I make bad choices, but because I don't tend to snack. This either makes me cranky, makes me eat more at mealtimes, or has me not hitting my nutrition goals. All of these are bad. Add to that the fact that Ari will eat my snacks if I don't, causing her to eat more than she should, and it's bad news all the way around.

emoticon Make good food choices on vacation.
Ari and I are planning a 5-day vacation that will involve eating out and extravagant cooking in. It's also going to involve a whole lot of walking around. My goal is to try and make the better choices, and listen to my body and not over eat just because I bought something.

emoticon Don't let anything on my to-do list get over one day behind.
I am a procrastinator. I have a wifty new iPhone to-do list app (called EpicWin) that is a video game for list makers. Seriously. So my plan is to keep from letting anything get more than one day overdue.

emoticon Drink three water bottles (that's 7.5 glasses of water) worth of water every day, even on the weekends.
Do you see a trend with weekends? 'nuff said.

    Oh, Superfan, you'll *love* the app. It will remind you of a million RPGs of old, I'm sure. Not to mention bad SF/Fantasy movies like Red Sonja.

    I like the halloween themes! I am going to put Epic Win on my phone since I'm a total list driven person. Just havn't done it yet since I'm worthless for getting anything done right now while deep in the throws of Civilization 5. emoticon
