Goals for the Week of 9.16.18
Sunday, September 16, 2018
So I had a follow-up appt. with a gastro doc. to see how the meds were working and if my AR is improving. I thought it was, but I hadn't been taking the medicine like I was needing too. I didn't realize that along with having a hiatal hernia, I also have gastritis. The meds they gave me were not just to help with AR, but also to help heal my stomach. I guess I missed that information from the doc after my procedure. So I'm changing up my eating routines. IF may not work with this condition since I'm needing to take my meds 2 times a day on an empty stomach. I don't have time to take it before my lunch at school, so I will be eating breakfast again instead of fasting until lunch. Despite having to do something other than intermittent fasting, I've really learned a lot from the research and the website I found Six Miles to Supper. The SMART goals really do help you focus on the steps needed to reach your goal and keep it realistic. The daily weigh ins have not made me obsessed with the scale, but it has given me good data, and let's me realize again how much our weight fluctuates on any given day. Now I weigh myself daily, log the weight, and at the end of the week, I can really look back and see the reasons for the gains or losses. It the the long term data that has really opened my eyes. So here's to another week of looking at the numbers and making smart choices.
1. Start taking meds regularly in AM and PM. A small breakfast in morning.
2. Stop the snacking in the afternoon. Set my snacks for the day and make them just a few...
3. Drink more water. Not drinking enough! My work water should be empty at the end of the day before I get to drink any other type of drink.
