I started the New Year with a Pledge. It was a foundation for the year, a “Broad Spectrum” list of goals and changes. In emoticon , you learn to take the big and/or long term goals and break them down into smaller and/or short term goals. My main focus in January was to achieve a 31 day streak in three areas; emoticon Water consumption, emoticon exercise, emoticon and tracking my food. Even though my Official Streak page doesn’t show it, (Did not track the information in a timely manner) I have done at least 10 minutes of exercise, I have tracked my food, and I have consumed at least 8 cups of water a day for the last 32 days. emoticon

I have been thinking about what I want for my February goals. Of course I want to continue the streaks I have going, but I have been thinking about what I should focus on. emoticon emoticon emoticon I have decided to work on my nutritional goals. I had a few days with WAY too much salt and not enough fiber. I have been meeting my calorie goals, but there have been times when I really have to push it to make minimum. I HATE eating just to hit my range and not because I am actually hungry. There are a couple of thing I am going to try, hopefully I can find a good balance.

I did take pictures, and I am glad I did. There is a noticeable difference, especially in the jeans. I am still not brave enough to post them. I divided this year into quarters, and the first quarter ends March 31st. I might be brave enough by then to share, we’ll see. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I totally feel the same way , when your not hungry but you gotta make the min. Calorie count . I've been addicted to cutie oranges, almonds & nori to snack at work . Totally need to change it up . Hope your week is off to a great start

    Way to go on carrying out your streaks. I know what you mean about not posting the results timely. I would often forget to do that when I was on a streak. Your blog has made me realize that a good place for me to begin February is to begin a couple of small streaks too. Thanks for the idea and keep going forward. You are making wonderful progress.

    PS- Don't be afraid to show who you are. You may not be proud of yourself right now but the comments you receive on your changing pictures will really boost your confidence. If you are concerned about how you look, take a look at my avatar. That is ALL me. I can't wait to post a slimmer one.
