putting it all together

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

I seem to have difficulty putting it all together.
'I mean if I focus on drinking enough water and getitng exercise, I tend to forget about monitoring the food I eat.
If I moniter the food, I have trouble being sure to get the fitness aspect in.I have always had trouble focusing on more than one thing at a time. Right now I am getting exercise every day and see small improvements in my fitness level. I can get around easier, and see new records on my wii machine I use.
But my weight stays the same , and when I record what I eat It is not enough food for the day.
But if I put my energy on eating enough foods I cant seem to be able to focus on the other.
well there are worse troubles in the world. Any improvements are, well ,improvements.

    Personally, I think it's nearly impossible to work on everything at once and still maintain your "normal" life. At least, it hasn't been possible for me. I would recommend picking a main focus for 4 weeks. Water is a great place to start. In those 4 weeks, find what "tricks" help you to get in your goal. For me, it's filling up 2 32oz water bottles each morning, and carrying a 16oz insulated tumbler around with me all day. First thing in the morning, I drink 8oz of water with a vitamin. Then, I work on emptying the rest of the water bottles throughout the day. Each time I empty my tumbler, I know where I’m at with my goal when I refill. With each meal, drink at least 8oz. If I do that alone, I’m already half way to my goal for the day! Experiment with tricks like that, and find what works best for you. Once you’ve found the tricks, then it becomes easy, and you can move to the next focus. Don’t be too hard on yourself! You’re reinventing your mindset and lifestyle here … and that’s gonna take some time!

    Focus on one activity at a time throughout the day. You don't have to focus on both at the same time. You will definitely get more "bang for your buck" if you can do both though. When you are working out, focus on that. When you are eating or, even, before eating, put your food into the calorie counter to make sure you're staying within your range. I do that alot, so I don't overeat. When we workout, we eat more and want to eat more. Blessings!! emoticon
