Notes to Self on January Progress

Wednesday, January 08, 2014

I am using Wednesdays as my weekly check-in for progress on my monthly goals. Feel free to scan on past this blog as it is mostly just for my own accountability.

1. Increase water and decrease Diet Pepsi: I am rocking this goal. I have had no Diet Pepsi in the house and I had one can of Diet Pepsi when I was at work on Sunday. I have gotten to the point where it kind of tastes funny now- good progress! I have been drinking the 24 oz bottle of Propel, then try to refill it at least once before I have another.

2. Cardio for at least 30 minutes 18 times in January: 4 so far, and that is not counting the shoveling on two days

3. Plan out wardrobe for work week: Has not been necessary since we have been on break and then snowed in.

4. Increase number of homecooked meals: All meals have been at home except for one lunch at Panera when I was out for the day with Adam. I have put at least 8 dinners in the freezer for easy prep when work/school resumes. I will also have lots of homemade soup for lunches in the freezer too.

I am happy with my progress, but I know it has been easier because we have not been on our typical schedule. the key will be to stay organized and motivated once we get back to business.

    Dawn it sounds like you did great in January. I hope you are still finding it easy to eat at home most of the time... I have trouble with that too. Wishing you the best of luck this month.

    I think it's wonderful how the weather has allowed you to get a good start on establishing your new habits and meeting your goals. Somebody up there likes you!

    I kinda felt like getting a Coke Zero when I got into work earlier than usual today. But I didn't!

    You are doing great! It's interesting how soda loses its appeal when you cut back and replace it with water. emoticon
