1. Reiterate my goal(s) and where I stand in reference to this goal.
- I want to focus in on this. I have definitely floundered and done poorly all around. I want to focus this coming week on not eating more than one sweet a week. Also I want to focus on portion control and making healthy food choices.
2. Discuss what I am going to do to achieve my goals.
- I will only eat one sweet/dessert each week
* I will not cave and have something just because those around me indulge
- I will learn more about portions and portion control
* No second and smaller portions; avoid eating out.
- Drink more water; drink water when I want to snack
3. Try to motivate others to join in on trying to become more healthy.
- My sister and I signed up for a Mud Run (5k) in early September. Looking forward to this.
4. Post a (reasonably healthy) recipe that I've tried, a cooking tip, a new idea for working out, a photo update of my weight loss or anything else I feel like sharing.
- I have been a slug this week so no words or wisdom to really share. I need to go refill my thyroid medicine as I know this will effect how I feel and my weight if I put it off.
