Today starts a new challenge at the Sisterhood. It's all about forming new habits. Did you know that they say if you do something for 21 days it becomes a habit? We are going to be testing that theory. We are supposed to pick one to three new habits to try. I've picked mine. Would you like to hear what they are?
First, I am going to get more sleep. I am the worst at going to bed at a decent hour. It's not uncommon at all for me to go to bed at 1:00 and then get up for work at 5:45 or 6:00 at the latest. I know that isn't enough sleep, but it doesn't stop me from doing it. My plan is to do this in increments. The first week, I'm shooting for midnight, 11:30 the second week and 11:00 the third. Sounds logical, right?
Second, I am going to exercise no less than 30 minutes a day, six days a week. I've been slacking in that lately. I'm thinking that if I go to bed earlier, I can get up a little earlier and exercise before work. I have no excuses for not doing it later in the day then.
Third, I have to get back to drinking more water. When I gave up diet coke for lent, I drank a ton of water. I also drank a lot of ice tea. I still drink the ice tea, but the diet coke is creeping back in. When the diet coke creeps back in, the water gets put by the wayside. No more! I will drink more water starting tomorrow (she says as she takes a drink of diet coke).
Lastly, this is a weigh in day. I'm sorry to say that I gained this week. Not much, just .4 pounds. Without the Weight Loss Warriors to keep me honest, I slacked off a little. I have to get back my enthusiasm. I'll find it, I promise. I'm going to post this now and then go see what everyone else is doing. Talk to you all next week.
