time for a list of milestones!

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

if you've read my blogs for any length of time, you've probably figured out that i like lists. i don't know why i find lists so effective at reinforcing my resolve, but i do! i guess sometimes it's just good to take stock of where you are and what you've accomplished in order to see your way toward accomplishing more. so, here goes:

i am just a smidge over halfway to my goal weight
i have been super consistent with tracking my food
i have successfully kicked the sugar habit--i have nearly zero cravings
i have not binged in months...nor wanted to
i ran a mile on the treadmill last week without stopping to walk. it was in 11 minutes, to boot!
i've gone from size 44 to size 38 pants (mens)
i am eating very few processed foods, and loving it
i have rare occasions when i relax my eating guidelines. these would be special occasions or situations. on these occasions, i have been successful with setting a goal beforehand and sticking to it.
i have been cooking and preparing food more regularly. so, i eat healthier stuff and less food goes to waste by rotting in my refrigerator.
i have been getting more sleep lately

so, lots of good things. i did have some sugar today. i decided it was a good idea because i had just given blood. i have a habit of passing out really easily, so i was trying to prevent that. in general i've been feeling pretty good lately!

today: go to bed! it's already getting late
tomorrow: work, cook some veggies
every day: strive to work in even a few minutes of exercise

    I like lists too!! or to write out things in ...outline form... I guess it's impersonal... but helps me organize my thoughts and NOT ramble..........
