Yes it’s mid February and I’ve already lost my New Year’s Resolutions but I’m ready for a new start.
I’m not giving up on the goals I set in January, I’m just re-starting them again. And you can too. This game of creating a healthy us is not suppose to be easy or perfect. Just like riding a bike we need to keep trying it until we get it right. So here’s to your new start too.
On January 9th I posted to posts – one that should have shown up the week before but thanks to an edit it showed up on January 9th. Assessment week – a hard week because we have to be honest with ourselves. So let’s look at my assessment. A few things I learned along the way:
- I love to eat – all the time
- I have no self control. I get hungry, then I get cranky when I try to control my portions, then I give up.
- I love to have my (2) glasses of wine at dinner time. 3 and and I’m a waste product, and 2 is probably too much but one just isn’t enough. Plus I have to admit that the perfect dinner for me is a glass of red wine and cheese.
- I’m not a fan of exercise, especially in the winter. I can find any excuse not to go for a walk – inside or out (yes – I have a treadmill in the basement) or to put an exercise video in (and I have them all – yoga to Extreme Body with that muscular dude) or to even sit on the floor and stretch.
Those are probably my biggest issues I have to overcome. I have noticed when the weather is nice outside I’m more motivated to go for a walk. I prefer to walk alone but my lack of motivation makes that a problem. Since I’ve put on a few extra pounds over the last 6 months I really need to kick myself into shape. Thus I’m starting over again. So here’s to week 2.
Creating SMART Goals
Specific – Measurable – Attainable – Realistic – Timely
Remember we are not DIETing – we are Developing Intelligent Eating Techniques
My Goals for the week:
Nutrition: Take 2-3 capsules Flax seed oil daily (one with B-L-D)
Exercise: Walk 1 mile each day (it’s not gong to be that nice this week but I have time )
Spiritual: I’m putting this one off until next week.
I’ll see you next week – along wth my log sheet for all to see.
