Okay, so I didn't do any of the goals I set for myself last week. I didn't track or post. I didn't exercise. I stayed sick and self-indulgent, whiny and unproductive. I beat myself up and belittled my lack of dedication.
That needs to stop. Not everyday will be great. I may even go for days where I don't do what I should.
So, intead of setting up goals for the month of November I am setting up goals for just this week. Here they are:
1) No more shopping or spending money for this week, including eating out. I stocked up on some specific groceries, pulled some recipes, and should be able to eat at home all week long. One exception is that I may run out of milk and if so then I may go get some.
2) Eat at home! I only have one social engagement this week so it should be pretty easy to eat at home, to pack my lunches, and to make a point to eat what I've already paid for and to eat things that help me meet my goals.
3) Exercise 5 times this week. As long as I'm congested running may be out of the realm of possibilities but I should be able to still do Zumba and yoga.
4) Track as much as possible. Tracked everything I ate today and I should, minus the engagement on Wednesday and what I may eat if I go home, be able to track everything this week. That is completely accessible.
