That all being said, I'm taking a cue from my friend Jaemie and I'm going to make some goals, and I'm going to report on how well I did with those goals at the end of the pre-appointed time. It's worked for me before and believe me, if there's a remote chance that even one person will be reading this and will be wondering if I've reached my goals, I'll do it.
The start of my new week happens on Saturday. I weigh in on those days and that's when my points reset. So, since we're on Wednesday now I'll state my goals for now until Saturday, then I'll try my best to recap how it all went. When I say "try my best" I just mean that sometimes weekends get away from me, but I will check in either on the weekend or in the first few days of the week.
So here we go:
Put Up or Shut Up Goals
1) Track that shit.
Fact is, I know that for me, I HAVE to track what I'm eating. I know there are stronger people than I out there who can really do well with not tracking and can eat intuitively. I would love to be among their numbers but I just am not there yet. Part of this journey is being honest with myself and if I'm going to be perfectly honest, I can't be trusted with "eating intuitively." Because I will tell that intuitive voice that says, "You don't need that cupcake" to shut the hell up. So yeah. Track.
2) Drink the water
Since I work from my home I always have a fresh supply of water and a working toilet to use when I need to pass it. So really there's no excuse for not hitting my 120 oz per day water goal EVERY DAY. When I don't hit it, that's just me being lazy. So that's the goal.
3) 5 - EVERY DAMN DAY
I will eat 5 servings of fruits and vegetables every day. If I don't, you have permission to kick me in the shins.
That's it for this half-week. I'll check in and let you all know how I did.
Thanks for listening!
