I decided that I need a weekly goal. A theme.
I have slipped into the worst habits. Drinking, smoking, not exercising. Today’s run kicked my butt! I also know that I am a total creature of habits, and capable of swapping the bad out for the good; I’ve done it to some extent the last time I really did BFL. But I always backslid – I need to create habits that last, before I can even consider deeper changes. The first week is a foundation to try and build upon – don’t they say it takes at least 21 days to create a new habit? I think I need 21 weeks!
So this week’s them is “Establishing Good Habits” – thinking baby steps here. 🙂 All I want to do this week is:
- Get up at a good hour each morning (by 7.30 I hope)
- Get on the treadmill for a 20 minute HIIT each morning (if I can fit in lifting this week, great – but right now, I need to get on the treadmill each morning)
- Eat clean
- Take a vitamin and a Chantix each day
- Drink in moderation, if at all
- Go to bed at a good hour
So that’s MORE than enough for this week. That’s just the basics that I need to move forward each week. Maybe next week’s theme will be repeating the first successfully, lol! We’ll see.
