One of the best tools I took away last year from learning about changing a lifestyle is the following.
Write out your goals and then write out the plan to get there.
If I can give one bit of advice that is what I would give. I took a spiral notebook and it ended up being my pal for the past year.
I am normally a very “neat” person when it comes to logging and even writing out my grocery list. I like to start with a clean crisp piece of paper, lines always too. But as the year went on it wasn’t important to see straight lines and logging columns. To me it was seeing progress and the ability to revisit my goals and my plan. Although I lost my way a few times I am now content with the result I ended with in 2017. I’ve come to terms I did some great accomplishments for myself and my family.
But it is not time to stop. It is time to “up my game” and make yet another commitment to making the vessel God gave me stronger. So, now I will share my goals and my plan for 2018.
My hope is to find the inner strength to move forward and remember that baby steps CAN make a huge difference. That when I am feeling overwhelmed and upset as I was last week that there is still hope and a fire deep inside me. Like I’ve said before, no one can make me do this, only me. Which means that no one can stop me from doing this either!
Disclaimer – I have already begun some of the items in my plan. I am going on a girl’s trip this weekend, I’m sure I will indulge at some point. But I do have a plan in my head and a commitment to workout both days.
Current levels (just for fun!)
10,000 steps most days (January so far, only 1 days with less than 10K)
45 minute workout per day
Eating out – since starting 2018 have ate out less than previous months
Motivate/Inspire others, #keep movin group, brother and cousin too
Meals: half a plate of veggies at dinner
oatmeal or cream of wheat w/banana for breakfast most days
Thank you to everyone that has supported me in 2017. It really did help to have others with me. Even if you only commented on my social media posts or complimented how I looked. Encouraging others is a great way to make life better. So from my heart, thank you.
Well I think that about does it for this post. It’s time to get up from this computer and move! Thanks for swinging by!
