Plodding Along: Working on Goals

Tuesday, May 08, 2018

Since getting my new Fitbit Flex 2, I have been easily getting over 10,000 steps every day. It's been so long since I have done this. It feels good to be a little more active again; I'm not quite as sore as I've been before the steps.

I've been REALLY paying attention to the articles I've read. The new goal/habit I am working on is a gratitude journal. List three things in the morning and three at night. When writing, re-read my last entry. I just started this past weekend, so it's definitely not a habit yet. But if I can do the steps again, I can get this, too. It's starting my day on a more positive note and finishing the day with a pat on the back. Heaven knows I need this. Positive self-esteem is in short supply lately.

I feel as if my brain needs to start working more. when I go to use it, it sure is fuzzy sometimes. I suspect it may have something to do with the fact that I really don't sleep well. I need to go for a sleep study. I haven't looked into the cost because I know I don't have it right now. (Working on the budget seems to be a LONG process!)

    Hi Patty! I agree that with being more active, you are less achy and stiff. Pretty consistently for a very long time, I've been doing water exercise, yoga & jog/walking besides gardening & housework & find I've become more flexible & adaptable to more strenuous activity. I have minor age-related osteoarthritis & upping consistency has helped a lot
    Luv your posts! 😃

    Fitbit is quite the motivator. emoticon Good job getting in the steps and staying active on Spark by reading articles. A gratitude journal is helpful in keeping us focused on all the good in our life. Sleep deprivation is a hard thing to overcome. I hope you can get a sleep study done soon and that you can find something that will help you sleep better. emoticon It's hard to have a clear mind and enjoy the day when you're tired. emoticon You deserve a big pat on the back for getting in all those steps and for all you're doing. emoticon Keep up the good work. emoticon
