NaBloPoMo Round 2, Day 27: New Habits for the New Year?

I don't really like the term "resolutions" because of all the baggage associated with it about setting a lofty, impressive goal in December, only to abandon it in the first week of January. I am thinking about it this way instead: "What new habits would I like to bring in to the new year with me?" If it is something I really want to do, rather than something I think I should want to do, I can start doing it now.

Here are the habits I'm starting to work on now so that I can have a happier new year:
  • Logging food and exercise every day, no excuses.
  • Planning ahead for exercise and meals. It always makes a huge difference for me when I take the time to actually do it.
  • Interrupting my negative self-talk, both out loud and inside my head.
I'm sticking to three because another thing I am working on is knowing my limits.  My recent injury problems have me thinking that I expect too much out of myself sometimes.

  2. I'd say my 3 are pretty much the same.
