Reflections from Week Nine
When my mind is set on hitting my goal I can have the willpower needed to pass on things I love. For instance on Thursday night my husband came home with 3 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies and they were all my favorites - Thin Mints, Samoas and S'mores. Seriously I could have killed him. Thankfully I live in a house of boys and they dogged that box of Samoas in one sitting - however I did snag one (and tracked it) on Thursday night. They cracked open the Thin Mints Friday night and it was a little harder to sit there and watch them eat the cookies. This time the little guy got in on the cookie action and that box was gone in 5 minutes. Again I had only 1 cookie (and tracked it). The last box of cookies still remains, but when I scanned it this morning and saw that 2 cookies are 9 points it was enough of a deterrent not to open the box.
Bottom line is, I'm the only one that can stop this particular cycle. I know I'm not alone when it comes to this kind of cycle, because we JUST talked about it in the meeting room last Sunday. I set myself some really reasonable and attainable goals this week. All I have to do is follow them!
* Drink 120 oz of water per day
* Track EVERYTHING
* 30 minutes of yoga daily
* No candy
I'm looking forward to a much better week. Even if all I do is eliminate the bad behaviors from last week, I'm making progress in the right direction.
