Setting Up Good Habits

Sunday, December 30, 2012

Over the last few days, I've been getting back into healthy habits. Here are a few:

1. Track nutrition honestly.
While I did not track consistently, I was fairly happy with my food choices. At my sister's Christmas party yesterday, I stacked my appetizer plate with raw veggies before eating anything else. On my dinner plate: beans, arugula salad with roasted veggies, a small amount of tuna noodle salad, and some very good cheese with wheat crackers. Dessert? A few cookies. Overall, very good choices! I will continue tracking -- and staying within calorie limits -- throughout January.

2. Exercise
On Friday I did my first TKD class in nearly three weeks. Holy cow, am I sore today! My abs hurt when I laugh. Obviously I have some catching up to do...which I will get to as soon as this Packer/Viking game is over. I would like to focus on daily exercise of at least ten minutes. I've never done this; instead, I only plan the big workouts.

3. No bingeing. Seriously. Any advice on how to curb this?

4. Water. I've got to get back up to 8 glasses a day. Lately, I have been as low as 3.

All right: track food, make healthy nutrition choices, daily exercise, drink water, and NO BINGEING. I can do this. I can do this.

    I've been on a sweets kick for almost two weeks now and it's DEFINITELY not good! I need to get back to having protein and fat with carbs at every meal and snack. That's what REALLY helped my cravings for sweets and binges. Hugs!

    Hey Beccs! I'm right there with you with getting a fresh start and recharging my good habits and putting the naughty (oh so naughty!) ones to bed for a while!

    Water, a vitamin every other day, some small but effective workouts, better eating (especially now that the junk is out of the house!) are all in my wheelhouse to improve upon in 2013.

    We can do this together!!!!

    2013 is going to be a GRRRRREEEAAAAT year! emoticon
