I was talking with my bestie, Julie, about how frustrated I was. That I can't seem to commit to anything since April. I can't commit to eating well, to exercising, going to my TOPS meetings or my blog.
I am just frustrated with the whole process, yet can't bring myself to make the changes necessary. Each week I tell myself it will be a better week, I will exercise each day and count my calories....but by lunch time the next day I have forgotten and blow it completely until the next week when I vow to start over.
With oh-so-wise advice, she suggested I take it just one day a time....set one goal each day and do your best to stick to it. If I don't, just start fresh the next day with the new goal. I have gotten into the mentality that it's all or nothing with this journey. I have to have everything on par because if I don't, they will work against each other and the whole thing is pointless.
So, inspired by her wise words and a TOPS exercise of creating a daily inspiration calendar, I have put together some goals for the week.
Starting yesterday, my goals for the week are as follows:
Tuesday - go to TOPS
Wednesday - drink 8 glasses of water
Thursday - be thankful
Friday - walk
Saturday - eat in moderation
Sunday - walk
Monday - remember...1 pound at a time
Well, I managed to hit my goal for Tuesday and am par with my water challenge for today. To help with my goal today, I put a sticky note on the water cooler and am marking each glass I have.
What goal can you set for today?
