I thought I'd revisit my daily goals, since my weigh-in is coming up tomorrow. You can find the post where I talked about these goals here:
Track my food. I'd give this one a 7/10. There were a couple of days (like yesterday) where I had to go back and fill in after the fact instead of tracking as I went along. This made it harder to know where I was and how many points I had left. I need to do a better job of keeping up as I go along.
Stay within my daily points plus earned activity points. This one is definitely key, but I am probably at about a 5/10 on it. I dipped into my weekly points earlier in the week than I should have, which didn't give me a lot of wiggle room on the weekend. I went to a party yesterday and overindulged (and didn't track as I went along), and I'm over my weekly points again.
Check off all of my Good Health Guidelines. I haven't been keeping close enough tabs on this one. I'm maybe at a 6/10. That pesky multivitamin, which I can't take within 4 hours of my thyroid pill, trips me up many days. The daily oils are also iffy sometimes. And dairy, which is something I really need to work at if I'm going to get it consistently.
Get at least 20 minutes of activity every day. 10/10. This is the easy one for me. I did my Cycle/TRX class on Tuesday and Thursday. I ran Wednesday and am going to run today after it warms up another degree or two. I did a BOSU Yoga video on Friday. I did Pilates on Saturday, and yesterday was swim class. Tonight I also plan to go do my yoga class. I think I have a nice, balanced program going, and I have some serious muscles developing.
Eliminate negative self-talk and focus on success. I had been doing better with this one, but yesterday was a very bad day for the self-talk. I went around feeling like everything was wrong with me. So I can only give this one a 6/10.
I didn't set these goals expecting to be perfect at them right away, but I could do a better job of keeping them in mind as I go about my day. Something to work on. I signed up for a mindfulness/meditation workshop that will take place on the next 5 Saturdays, and I'm thinking that adding this kind of practice would help me to be better able to focus on my goals and help get rid of some negative thinking habits.
