So…….I’ve been doing pretty good with my micro goals within the Wellness Quest. Still no Diet Coke, trying to cut out the unsweetened iced tea as well. The tea I have not been able to kick just yet. I HAVE cut way down on the eating out as well. I actually cooked a couple of meals in the last couple of weeks. ;o)
How long did you make it before collapsing into a heap? A second? Two? If you can hold a plank for a full minute, I totally salute your amazing core strength! Meanwhile, I keep adding one second a day to my planking. Someday my core will be as strong as all you awesomely fit people out there. Meanwhile, I’m up to a full 20 seconds!!!
Hey, I gotta start somewhere. I’m building up my energy levels slowly after being so incredibly inactive for so long ! Exercise is NOT the first thing on your list when you are trying to stay pregnant….But I digress. So as the Flylady advises, 15 minutes of loving movement a day should be your minimum you are getting in to your busy schedule. So I may not be swimsuit model material just yet, but doing something positive for myself every day is helping to put a smile on my face.
Next up is trying to cut out all processed foods and added sugars. SIGH. That means I’ll have to actually cook more probably. Did I mention I am NOT a cook? Oh well. It’s for my own good. And it helps me achieve my goal of actually enjoying my hard earned vacation. I keep repeating that in my head whenever I lose focus on what I am trying to accomplish. VACATION VACATION VACATION…..A pretty good mantra.
