daily goals

Monday, February 07, 2011

I have decided that inorder to meet my long term goals, I need to set a daily goal. Today, my goal is to not eat any refined sugars. I can satisfy my sweet craving with FRUIT, or a bit of honey on toast.

Change takes place with making small changes everyday. I am becoming what I want to be by doing the things my future self would be doing.

I have a family reunion in July. I will be 145 pounds by then! I WILL!!!! I am the only one stopping me. No more EXCUSES! I CAN DO IT! I will make small changes each day, small sacrifices, that will lead to my end success.

I will tell you tomorrow of my success in my goals for today! I am accountable to myself for making it happen.

We have talked about having one more child. We would start trying after the reunion. I have PCOS, and have a difficult time getting pregnant. What has worked best for me is eating very strictly, meaning NO sugar whatsoever. I think if I start doing this now, before we start trying, I can get my cycles to be more regular, thus leading to an easier time concieving. This will be our last baby, if we have the fortune of actually concieving. I want to be in excellant condition before getting pregnant. How is that for motivation?! (Is this TMI or what ?)

    Well, I took great care to enter in all of the food that I ate yesterday. I did not meet my goal of eating no refined sugars yesterday. I thought the dried cranberries were a good choice. It wasn't until I had eaten 2 servings that I read that they are covered in SUGAR! I didn't go bananas after this though. I had a half cup of vanilla icecream with a drizzle of chocolate syrup, and 3 mini reeces peanut butter cups, after dinner. That was all of the refined sugar that I ate. That is enough to keep me from losing weight though, because it did put me over my calorie range. Lesson learned here? If I am going to indulge in sugary things, I need to cut back on something else to make sure that I dont go over my calorie range. Also, maybe saying no sugar at all is a bit extreme. And I could have had just icecream without crumbled reeces on it. Today I will not go over my calorie range.
