Eleven Mornings and goals for next week

Saturday, July 16, 2011

I have managed to keep consistent in having some morning exercise every day for the past eleven days. My goal is to get the longest streak I can going. I have been exercising about 10-20 minutes each day. It's not much, but I know it's making a difference.

Next week, I would like to get up early enough to get at least one longer workout video in there that's about 30-40 minutes. I also want to get in the habit of doing some PM stretching and meditation right before bed. I think it would help with stress and wind me down well. Finally, I will continue tracking my food, making sure to consume within my calorie range and control my sodium intake, while keeping my calcium intake at an appropriate level.

Finally, a little victory story. Last night, my boyfriend and I went to our favorite neighborhood restaurant. I got my usual: a reasonable, yummy salad. But I didn't eat any of his fries this time. You see, it's par for the course for me to get my salad, then eat half his fries, even though the salad is perfectly filling. I was so proud that I finally resisted taking fries!

    Wow, congratulations on your 11-day streak! Great! Keep it going!

    And how nice that you resisted the fries. After awhile, if you take one, it won't even taste that good! Celebrate these small successes--they all add up!


    A trophy for your accomplishments!
