January 1, 2013...Happy New Year!

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

So 2013 is here and I am feeling MOTIVATED!!! Drinking my water, got in 20 minutes of exercise, logged my breakfast (and ate a fairly healthy breakfast). WooHoo! 12 hours into the new year and I am loving it!

So how long does this feeling last? some years (depending on what I did the night before) it never even starts! lol. And some years it has lasted a few days. Can I get this Feeling of Motivation and loving life to last a week? A Month? All year? I cant say for sure, but I am going to give it a try! I want this to be the year I do it! The year I met my goals: for healthier living, wt loss and overall just loving and enjoying life!

So on to a new subject: I am doing the spark coach and today i am to blog how I waste time. (or something like that). My number one time waster is my computer! I love the computer. I love FB and playing games, I love watching my tv shows and movies on here. I do so enjoy the computer but it does keep me from moving around and I also tend to eat while sitting here (not today). So I need to try and find limits or time outs so I can do other things. (exercise, time with family and friends, and other hobbies.

One thing I can do is set a timer and after so much time; I have to get up and move around. another thing I could do is NOT go on the computer until I have done some exercise or spent time with family. I could also plan my day, give myself tasks to do and work on them as the day goes by. there are several options for me to try, I dont have to give up my computer but just change how I manage my usage and time.

    You have motivation motion!!!!

    I learned a trick thru WW (a very long time ago) to not eat unless I was sitting at a table with a place setting. This curbs what they called "mindless eating." it has helped me.

    Stay the course!

    You could even have scheduled shut downs that force you to stay accountable to your time limits.

    Here's to keeping that motivated spark through the entire year!
