Howdy Journal & Friends,
Time for our Challenge Update!
Does anyone not know the overall goal of the challenge by now? Well, I'll remind myself, since this was my toughest week since it began:
"The goal of this challenge is to teach yourself to look at your new behaviors positively, to learn to be nicer to yourself and believe in yourself, to learn to enjoy healthy behaviors and learn some moderation. A little balance. It's important. More important to learn than the extremes - too much and deprivation."
Like I said, this was my toughest week... I'm glad to start a fresh Challenge week... only One more to go!
My Spring Challenge goals:
1. Every day for the next 13 weeks, do some kind of Exercise.
2. Every day for the next 13 weeks, drink a Greenie.
3. Check in every Saturday.
4. Tell one thing each week that I like about myself.
5. Save up to buy myself a fun Reward at the end.
While I didn't do as much as I had intended, I did do SOMETHING each day.
I bombed out badly on this one this week... yay for a fresh week!
One thing I like about myself:
I like the fact that I try to be dependable... that my word is my bond. I learned that from my parents... no contract should be needed, their handshake was gold. It has to do with integrity. In the past, it's landed me in trouble, because I forget that is not the way most of the world is run... they look for legal loopholes. So I've had to become more careful... but I still want people to be able to count on me.
For my Reward:
If I have enough saved up by the end of the challenge, I would like to get a "Bamboo Fun Pen & Touch" tablet from Wacom. It is a medium sized drawing tablet you connect to your computer, and is supposed to be Mac compatible. Slick looking, huh?
Do all you Weight Loss Warriors remember we had some prizes? Those brave souls that stuck this out til the end will get their name included in the drawing. I am making my list (and checking it twice) so be sure to check in this week, even if you had a tough week... like...hmmm... who could that be??! Moi??
Remember, we want progress, not perfection.
From Dr Phil's book: "Without question, it is this focused goal-oriented approach to life that distinguishes winners from losers."
