Day 7 I Can Do It; Day 8 Help Me, Please...*

*"Day" blogs based on activities in Linda Spangle's 100 Day Weight Loss book.

Day 7 I Can Do It

Today is about becoming my own cheerleader. I set up my vision board on my Start Page to focus on words of encouragement: "I Can Do Hard Things" 2x, "I Totally Matter", "I Will Eat What Fuels My Body Best", "I Am Doing This For ME" and "Love Yourself First And Everything Else Falls Into Line - Lucille Ball". And I will post at least ten sticky notes around with the phrase, "I Can Do Hard Things!" - DONE!

I "Can Do" because:

- I have set up a plan and worked it through to a big goal before - completing a marathon
- I have organizing skills
- I function well with goals, order and routine
- I am getting enough sleep


Day 8 Help Me, Please...

I have made some progress in asking for specific kinds of support that are actually supportive to me.

My husband preportions my shredded wheat and makes sure there are only 3-4 servings in the cupboard. He hides the remainder.

I have made a Sleep Bet with my DD and a Calorie Burn Bet with my DH for the month of August. These are more like accountability challenges in that neither DD nor DH has chosen to make a bet back. I gave DD $20 in a envelope that I am to get back if I average more than 7 hours of sleep a night - if I don't she gets to donate it to the charity of her choice. I plan to use the money to buy a fun Life is Good t-shirt. BTW, I am averaging 7 hours, 50 minutes so far! :)

    Thanks for sharing these "Day" blogs.
    I think your sleep average is increasing, right? Progress.

    I don't think I could be quite as structured as you are, but my goals have been motivating me lately as content with other struggles.
