For my team - 2018 Fall 5% Challenge Community
Today's assignment is to list your 3 reasons/excuses on why your lifestyle (diets and exercise) plans have not been well executed in the past. Write a strategy for each one to keep yourself on track for 8 weeks. Let's learn from our past behaviors and make this our best Challenge ever!
1 - Oh just going to have a few chips-or cookies Well you know what happen I ate the whole bag !!!!
Not bringing then in the house is not a option because of hubby..
Strategy - Always have enough healthy snacks on hand. Stay away from sweets and chips, do not even try to have a small portion.
2 - Procrastination - Putting off starting a healthy eating plan. I'll start next Monday and Monday never came.
Strategy - I have already started to take action to change this by joining SparksPeople and tracking my food intake. I am determined to continue.
3 - Lack of Motivation and Enthusiasm - Because of health issues,being put on lots of meds.'and having to quit my job I just gave up caring.
Strategy - Fear has been my motivation, caused by a visit to my heart doctor. He told me if I didn't lose the weight I was going to have a heart attack and die. That's a pretty strong motivation, don't Ya think?
What have you learned along the way that has really helped you?
I have learned that if I stay focused I can do this
.If I make the right choices the weight will come off and I will improve my health.
That the saying " It Works If You Work It " is true, you just have to put in the effort.
That Rome wasn't built in a day, that it has taken me along time to gain all this weight and it's going to take time to lose it.
Most important I think , I learned not to give up !!!!
