New Year New Focus

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

I been a little slack in my eating habits lately. I have only gained a couple pounds but I can see old habits creeping in. So I want to begin this year with a new focus on elimiating some of those bad habits.

Stop drinking diet soda. I used to be a real big drinker of regular soda. When I lost weight the first time, I gave it up cold turkey and only drank diet and an occasional basis. I have been drinking alot more diet pop lately. I am vowing to drink water at most meals and go back to drinking soda as being a treat. I think the sweatness of it really is bad for me. And I hate the dependance on caffine.

Stop mindless eating. While I eat pretty healthy food most of the time, there are times I eat when I know I am not hungry. Especially when I am around the house. The kitchen calls my name. I know I am not hungry but I convice myself I should eat. I need to pay attention to what I am putting in my mouth. If I do eat it I will write it and track it now matter what. This will really show me how these little bits add up.

Focus on fitness. I have been attending a boot camp class the last 8 weeks. I really like the feeling I get from it. When this 6 week class is up I want to be able to keep it up at home. I have in the back of my mind that I want to run a half marathon. Last year I did a few 5K's and even a 5 mile race. I know I could do it if I set my mind to it. I guess I just need to do it.

If somewhere in there I can loose the last 10 pounds that would be great to. But I don't want to focus on the weight. If I can nail down those other items the weight should take care of itself.

I thought actually writing this down would make me do it. emoticon
