Keeping on it

I'm just starting to build the smallest bit of momentum. My eating has been much better, not perfect, but better.

One thing I am working on is breaking the habit of having a cookie around 3pm at work. This is the time I crash energy-wise. Going cold turkey was not working, so now I am replacing with pretzels and hummus. This is do-able. Once I go 21 days (habit changing) without a dessert, then I will try to change this snack to veggies and hummus or something healthier than the pretzels.

My major goal for today is go to the gym and to get some gym music on my phone. I'm putting the time in my calendar right now!

After a long hiatus

I haven't posted on here since May. That is pretty telling. Over the summer, I was very sick, but couldn't get a diagnosis. It wasn't until October that I figured out that my thyroid was very out of whack and got on medicine to get it back in line. I didn't really start feeling better until November, an then the holidays, a family vacation, and Harper's birthday - all while working full-time...excuses.

I now have a 1 year old, and things seem to be calming down. It's time to get back to healthier habits. To be honest, it feels like I am starting 100% from scratch.

Today's goals:

  1. Download gym music & find headphones
  2. Walk for 45 minutes on the treadmill
  3. Eat soup with added vegetables and turkey for dinner
  4. Peppermint tea after dinner
