Goals for the next 3 weeks

My next appointment with J isn't for three weeks because I'm going out town all next week for work and it kinda threw the schedule off a bit. Here are my goals for this period of time:

  1. Blog about chapter 8 (check - see previous post)
  2. 8 glasses of water a day
  3. Try to add veges to foods I'm already eating (sandwiches, salads, pastas)
  4. Bike once a week
  5. Swim once a week
  6. Read chapter 13
  7. Sign off card for stopping at 6.5 and taking 20 minutes to eat
  8. Do my best while out of town this next week
    1. access the Food Anthropologist voice and make observations and NO judgments
    2. Try to exercise but do not feel guilty if I can't find time
A word about my lack of soda. It has been getting easier and I feel better. I'm not sure why - maybe its all out of my system or maybe I'm finally getting enough water. I still have lots and lots of soda stocked in my fridge and pantry and I refuse to get rid of it. I have not sworn off soda forever. If I really want a soda I will have one and I will not feel bad about it. Deprivation is NOT intuitive. I'm actually and truly choosing to not have soda right now. Who knows - I might have one while I'm out of town, I might not.

I think it's great you're drinking more water. I'll bet you feel more energetic, too. It seems like when I'm hydrated I just function better.

And then the other day I enjoyed a diet coke with my Cafe Rio salad. I hadn't had one in months and it tasted soooooooo good. Everything in moderation.
