Small Goals

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

Today, just wanted to sit for 10 minutes and think. And this is what I thought:

Something is not working with what I'm doing (or not doing), and I need to go back to the basics and start small. Maybe take on the healthy habits one or two at a time until they stick, then add a new one. No big announcements, no huge plans. Small, manageable baby steps toward health and weight loss.

It seems like when I have these wonderful (and totally doable) plans for weight loss, I make my statements and then break the promise to myself within the hour.

Goals For January:
1. emoticon Walk (the dog) every day for 45 minutes (has to be done anyway, so maybe this shouldn't count)
2. emoticon Drink 90 oz of water per day (11 glasses - 1 - 8 oz glass per hour?)
3. emoticon Wii Zumba twice per week (Can I tell you though, the Zumba guy - he creeps me out completely!)

That's it. Once I get these habits down, it will be onto the next habit(s)...

    I like that goal #4 to say hi to the rest of us. Keep sparking.

    Goal #4: log into SP every day and say hi.

    Ah, ja, the water habit...
    I've been here for almost 5 years and I still don't have that one down.
    Somehow I think I never will. But, it's not really a main focus for me.

    Good deal though, pick a couple of small goals and run with it. It will all fall into place if you keep at it long enough.

    emoticon should count even if you have to do it. You don't HAVE to go the whole 45 minutes but you will. emoticon

    I've wondered if there is Zumba for the wii as that is my only option right now. Other than the creepy guy is it fun?
