Small Stone of the Week - Nov 26-30

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

Yes, it's a short week for me. The past has passed. I can't change it. So all I can do is move forward. So here it goes

This week I want to:
Drink Water - at least 8 glasses a day
Track my foods - every bite.

Believe it or not, that is a huge goal for me. Just doing these two things. I need to put everything else out of my mind for this week.

I'm already thinking
running training
catching up on housework
more freggies
cut back on coffee

I need to stop all of this other stuff. I need to focus on small steps. That's it

For this week, my bonus work will be to not let these other things get to me. To not allow myself to think "but I'm doing this, so that can wait". NO

I need to focus on one thing at a time. One step at a time.

This week - drink water and track. If I do this every day, I can add one more goal next week - on Sunday. I can even start to think about what that goal will be, but not at least until Thursday. That's two days to focus on whats in front of me. Nothing more. Nothing less.

Easy enough right? Well...

Okay, one small change. I will track every bite of food I eat, but I'm also going to aim for tracking with my bodymedia. I want to upload at least 3 times this week. I need to get back into the habit of uploading the information and charging it on a regular basis. It's not really any added "stuff" to do. Just remember to take it off and plug it in at least every second evening at home.

And that's it for this week.

    This is very inspirational as a pep talk for ,me as I find it a real challenge this week, having fallen off the wagon after pushing myself too hard for so long and developing physical symptoms. It's great that you have written this out to make yourself accountable to yourself and added the Great Wall paper (haha cannot get Great Wall to come out caps with auto spell-- I Jess wallpaper is all one word, lol!). Anyway, I know that you can do this and you are taking the steps the make it possible, while setting an example for others at the same time. All best, Daisy Sister Emmy ::)$

    I've been working on small steps recently too and you know what? It WORKS! I stuck with my goals over this past weekend and have been overall more motivated because I see more success on a daily basis because I'm reaching the little goals. I've decided that I'm sticking to the little goals until I get them down pat. Mine are to cut out diet soda, I'm down to one a day, and resisting the temptations throughout the day.

    You can do this!! emoticon
