I think I may have found some new resolve. As I responded to Jeannie's blog today, I was reminded of something I read somewhere. (Sorry I can't give the blogger credit...I have no idea where I was, or even when it was.) Jeannie, like many of us, are struggling with motivation. I read that it isn't motivation that makes us successful, it's discipline. I am not disciplined. But when am I disciplined? When I make a plan. I am pretty good at sticking to a plan, I've just become lazy at making them. So tomorrow, Thursday May 31, I have a plan.
- I will actually use the points journal I have carried in my purse but not written in for three weeks.
- I will go to the gym at some point tomorrow. It doesn't matter what I do, just that I go and do something. No more of this "If I can't work out for an hour I won't go at all" stuff. I AM GOING!
Food plan for tomorrow:
Breakfast (6 points):
Banana and Starbucks drink
Lunch (6 points):
South Beach Cranberry Chicken Salad Kit
Lots o' Lettuce
Snack (4 points):
Dinner (9 points):
Subway turkey sandwich with cheese and honey mustard, baked lays
Nathan has softball practice tomorrow evening. If I make the above goals, I will allow myself to go with him and run to the mall and pick up the shoes that I want . I know, you're thinking that I'm rewarding myself after one day. That's not entirely accurate. I had planned on getting them on Saturday, I would just be getting them a day early.
Oh, and I'm working on a contest. I love making mix cds, and am planning on offering one here soon! I'll keep you updated.
Have a great night!
