Sunday's results day 4

Monday, March 25, 2013

Another semi- successful day

My Goals:
1. track everything I did even though I was high again( no wonder why I am not losing weight)
2.30 min. of exercise. did nothing
3.15 min. of quiet time. Did 30
4 Take down snowmen and put up spring stuff. well I got the boxes down. that is a start.

I think I really have to work on my eating. So I am going to add 1 more goal to my eating goals and that is measure and measure.

Maybe that will help with my ranges

    Measuring is a blessing for me.

    When I started tracking, I couldn't believe how high my calorie count was becuase I don't eat very much (or so I thought). Measuring has really helped me. Good you are tracking! Tracking should help.
I like that you added quiet time as one of your goals. Maybe I should do that too.

Saturday's results

Sunday, March 24, 2013

Weekends are so very hard for me. Everyone is home and they all like to eat and snack.

Eating Goal:
Track everything I eat I did track everything and found out I was well over my ranges. this is discouraging.

Exercise Goal:
Exercise 30 minutes 5 times a week, I didn't exercise today :(

Spiritual Goal:
Have a quiet time everyday( 15 minutes a day) I did have 15 minutes of quiet time

Other Goals:
Work on decluttering my desk (5 to 10 minutes a day) There was no cleaning done either

I am not sure I would say today was successful. It does show me I need to change.
I will keep plugging away.

    I have found that it is better to be glad you succeeded at something (no matter how small) than it is to be upset over "failures". Sometimes I don't run as fast or as far as I want, sometimes I eat more calories than I'd like, sometimes I don't get everything done that I want. It happens. But mentally I have to remind myself that even if I ate a little too much, I have food to eat and that's a good thing and if I didn't go as far or as fast as I wanted, at least I did something. It's the small victories that get us farther not the big ones. Those big days of victories, come from lots of small victories and hard work. Keep your chin up buttercup, you're doing great!

    Well you did 2 out of 4 goals, when I do that I call it semi-successful. Its not everything I hoped for, but its better than Epic Fail. So semi-successful.

But you had a little streak of hitting your goals and you are doing well overall. Don't let this one semi-good day throw you for a loop. Just start your streak again tomorrow and plan to make these goals part of your life, just really integrate them. Each little step you take brings you closer and closer to how you really want to be!

Eating... and tracking

Saturday, March 23, 2013

I am finding out that I am eating more than I should. I know my goal for this month is to track everything. Do you think I should change the goal to staying in my range or just keep tracking? I also should be measuring instead of eyeballing it. I am just a goal person I need advice. Help.

    Just keep tracking. The whole thing is a process, and right now you are "learning" to keep track of everything you eat. Just trust the process, eventually you will be right where you want to be.

I am a firm believer that you should never restrict or withhold or reduce--just keep adding. Add more veggies, more leafy greens, more fruits, more movement, more sleep, more water....eventually you will crowd out the unhealthy stuff without ever having made yourself do without anything.

    Tracking isn't effortless but it is worth it.

    I bought a little 5-lb oxo kitchen scale, and I keep all of my measuring utensils out on the counter so it's very easy for me to know exactly what I'm eating.

If you're motivated to try to keep your calories within a healthy range, you should definitely go for it. You don't want to throw too much at yourself too fast, I guess studies have shown that when you build up toward a healthy lifestyle it becomes more permanent or something, but yeah, you should do that if you want.

    It feels so WONDERFUL to accomplish your goals, doesn't it, and you are on a ROLL and doing fantastic!!! Stick with your plan, get your 4 things done everyday, and after a month (or 6-weeks, if it was me) you will be ready to add a new list of 4 items. I have a feeling you are going to really amaze yourself this year!!
YAY You!!
