What Got Me Here

There's a book that I haven't read, with an amazing title that makes me want to read it: What Got You Here Won't Get You There.

Well, that's a word for me this morning.

I'm 154 this morning, and I know that I have to get serious to get beyond where I am. More of what I'm doing may maintain this weight at best. Is that what I want? No. So....

On 4 days a week (excluding Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays) I am going to stick to 22 points. On the the other 3 days, which are celebratory in terms of "community," I won't worry about the number 22, but I will fly straight, I promise, and not be a total numbskull when it comes to eating. I'll see how this works.

Exercise has been abysmal. I need much improvement. I will go for AT LEAST 3 exercise sessions.

These goals are measurable and achievable. I just have to do it--that's the trick! :) But I WANT to get beyond this silly mountain circling thing and so I HAVE to show some spunk!

You're starting to sound like me! I'm not sure if that's good or bad.

You goal setter, you!

That sounds like a plan with sticking to points 4 days a week - then it is a balance.

I also like the commitment to exercise. It is so good for you in so many ways.

Once it becomes a habit you'll begin to enjoy it and it won't seem so hard to fit it in. It'll be like church, bible study, and eating - well maybe that's a stretch.

I've heard it's 40 days to develop a habit.

My habit right now I'm developing is no carbs after 1:00p.m. I don't want to do this for the long haul but just to the end of June. Once I see some results, I'll see how I can slowly put some carbs back in - especially ones i enjoy. Is that all of them?

You'll get beyond your mountain Belinda, I know you will!

We'll do it together!
