Weekly Progress & Goal Adjustments
Sunday, August 07, 2016
Here are the results of my goals from last week:
Minimalist Daily Goals
Get out of bed - 7/7 days
Drink 1 glass of water - 7/7 days
Take morning meds - 7/7 days
Take evening meds - 6/7 days
General Daily Goals
Shower - 5/7 days
Wash dishes - 5/7 days
Study Spanish - 7/7 days
Study for IT certification - 7/7 days
Mostly good. I had one day where I forgot to take my evening meds. I also had one day where I somehow missed one of the pills in my pill box in the morning and didn't notice it was there until the next day.
For this week, I will continue with these goals and I'm adding 1 new one:
Track calories eaten each day.
I was doing this really well before. Now that I'm not eating healthy, I've stopped. I don't really want to know how bad the stuff I'm eating is. Or do I? My plan is to track what I'm eating, even if it is horrible. Then I'll get to see just how horrible it is. I'll probably continue this for two weeks without necessarily making any dietary changes
Years ago, when SparkPeople was broken up into 3 phases, the first was "Fast Break." You'll notice that you can still add Fast Break goals in the Other Goals section. One of the options was to track what you eat and they suggested that you do this for two weeks without altering your diet so that you get a good idea of what you are currently putting into your body.
From this baseline, you can start making adjustments to make it better. With that in mind, in 2 weeks I may decide that I need to increase my daily fiber intake by Xmg or what-have-you. That's going to be my approach to this.
