Again, again..

Monday, December 17, 2012

Again, here I am saying I'm back and ready to make the changes I need to make. If I follow my track records, then this should be the time! It took me several attempts to quit smoking, so I am going to again begin the road to a new, healthier me.

I am going to set simple goals. I think I focused to heavily on a goal weight, or a goal number. This time, I will focus more on entering healthier things into my life. The rest will get here when it gets here. It seems to me that I was trying to build a house without a foundation. That never works. It helped that I took a couple good classes this semester, and am considering taking a yoga class through my school. We'll see. I think I'm still too self conscious.

I'm going to make a goal chart for myself, starting small. I will make it a goal to eat 2 servings of fruit and 2 servings of vegetables a day. And at least ten minutes of exercise each day. These seem like perfect goals for me. That's my starting point. I have a month until school resumes, which will be the perfect opportunity to reset my schedule and my eating habits. I will get into the habit of having fresh snacks available, and avoiding bagged, processed and junk food snacks. I'm still doing pretty good with staying away from soda. But not so much the sparkling grape juice. Ha.

    It is best to start small and one step at a time, staying away from soda is a great achievement. Getting involved with group activities is also great and yoga helps to balance you.

    I love your comment about not being able to build a house without a solid foundation. I use that comparison all the time - because it is so true! This will be you time. Go for it, girl ! emoticon
