My goal for this 7th day (and end of the first week of our 10 week challenge) is to write down how I will reward myself if I accomplish just one of my goals. I decided if I obtain my goals, it would mean I would lose "at least 10 pounds." If I do that, I want to get a new outfit consisting of a pair of jeans (or really cute Capri pants) and a cute top to go with it. (Of course I would only do this if we have a regular paycheck again.) Totally awesome reward! In a recent post, I mentioned procrastination. Maybe procrastination is the wrong word for what I am trying to say. I'll explain it as if I want to eat something I could live without, I will "justify" it by saying I will work it off later. To me that sounded like procrastination, but I guess it really is (false) justification! (This challenge is really enlightening me!!) As I was typing this post, I realized that HAD I been eating right all this week and staying active (one of my goals), most likely I could have lost a couple pounds! That is two pounds closer to my ten-week goal! See what I mean? I'll repeat that (mainly for myself)...HAD I BEEN GOOD THE PAST 6 DAYS I WOULD HAVE BEEN HAPPIER WITH MYSELF!! So badly I need to work on that self-control thing! I will say that this past week has been very fun working on this challenge. Writing down goals each day has been wonderful. Kelli mentioned that it is almost addicting and I completely agree with her. Now if I can just focus and bring that enthusiasm off the Blog and stick it in my brain, I would be doing great. I am so excited for the next 9 weeks. I KNOW without a doubt that I will succeed!!
