Lightbulb Small steps + small changes = end results

Okay, so some of us have joined in on the Halloween Challenge and yay for us for getting motivated

Now while it is great to have a goal what steps are we going to take to get there? For myself I think I need to make small changes in order to make my plan work.

So here are my mini-goals for this coming week:

1) increase my water intake by adding one more glass of water daily to what I am currently having.

2) increasing my exercise by getting up earlier in the morning and doing a) my yoga tape 2x per week b) my pilates tape 2x per week and c) in addition to my daily walks to and from work I will take a walk at lunch everyday while the weather is still good.

3) make my lunch every night before going to bed so that I will have a good, healthy and OP lunch and not be tempted to eat out or buy a snack at work.

Any one else go any ideas?

My goal for the coming week......

I need to plan ahead and bring my lunch/snacks to work each day! I did that when I first started, but have slacked off a bit now. When I don't bring my lunch I find myself either eating what I shouldn't (from the cafeteria), or more often skipping lunch, then being absolutely starving when I get home....then I eat like there's no tomorrow....past the point of being full! I find that eating all of my meals, plus snacks (per SBD plan), really makes all the difference in the world for me.

I must plan a mid-afternoon snack because that is my danger zone! Many times I've been attacked by liquorice, ju-jubes or pistachios between 4 and 5:30!
A morning walk must also be a priority. If I leave it until later, the day gets away from me!

I need to write everything I eat down, every day. I slacked off over the summer, and I am TIRED of writing a food diary, but it is the only way for me.

And also I need to get the pedometer on again. Need to be accountable!

My small goal this week is to keep myself busy at night with puzzles, magazines, organizing, whatever, so I don't snack. No eating after 8pm for me.

I am going to add taking my vitamins regularly. I have been slacking lately.

Okay, so I have managed to achieve 2 out of my 3 goals so far- not bad, not bad at all.

I really need to work on getting more exercise though

I had 2 goals, but haven't stuck with either. So I am renewing my goals:

~Keep busy so I don't eat after 8pm.
~Take my vitamins every day

And I am adding
~Drink more water/Crystal Light. I tried the sugar free kool-aid (which I have a ton of) with some Equal, and it's not bad.
~ NO MORE Buying Snacks - I have a bunch of it already. Actually I have enough food in this house, that I am not going grocery shopping except for milk, eggs, bread, fruits & veggies.
~Bring my lunch at least 3 times this week.

Ditto, Squeak! Thanks for the reminder.

Okay, today I am going to:

- take my vitamins. and other pills.
- stay the **** away from sugar.
- get some tidying done, because the house is making me feel like crap which makes me want to eat.
- make a real dinner for tonight. (damn. forgot to take meat out of the freezer last night!)

My goals are to increase my running to 2 miles 3x a week, do one of my exercise videos on the off days (except weekends), and remember to take my multivitamin every day!

Didn't do great, but didn't do too bad either. So I am sticking with my previous steps for this week...
~Keep busy so I don't eat after 8pm.
~Take my vitamins every day
~Drink more water/Crystal Light. I tried the sugar free kool-aid (which I have a ton of) with some Equal, and it's not bad.
~ NO MORE Buying Snacks - I have a bunch of it already. Actually I have enough food in this house, that I am not going grocery shopping except for milk, eggs, bread, fruits & veggies.
~Bring my lunch at least 3 times this week.


I have even made myself a small checklist for the week to help me keep track.
