A deficit of Success

Adjust your dial, changes are a coming!!!!!!

 As I alluded to in my last post, my May month goals didn't go over well.  I didn't make my 2017 mileage.  I didn't make my running mileage, I didn't lose weight, I didn't track!

So moving on!

I have thought about my monthly goals for sure.....and this month I am breaking it down....

1.  Water consumption-drink it....drink a lot of it
2.  Track my food- it doesn't matter what...just track it...every bite!
3.  Move...stop being a slug and blaming rain and sore bones ...move!!!!

If you notice I'm not setting any goals of "you will do this 5 times a week" or whatever.     I'm starting from a deficit of success and I just need to give myself some success.  If I set a number in my head of how often, I am simply setting myself up for failure.  My challenge is simply to do those things as much as I can.  Do it so that I feel I was successful.

To track my progress, I will be adding either stickers or colored areas to my mileage calendar. (I want stickers...but that means I have to get to the store in the morning before work...so I may default to colored pencils and my own color coded coloring!

This is the simple success plan!


Meanwhile...work is stressful and getting worse!!!!!

I am not giving up on the mileage challenge of 2017 miles in 2017....but I am going to ease up my focus on it for a bit.  I need to get everything in line...not just my mileage!!!!!

I love your simple success plan! Sometimes all we need is to see that we are making progress. In times of stress it is important to just do what we can when we can.

I think June will be great for you!

This sounds like a great plan!
If you want to share your tracking, even if just a picture, it could give you a little bit of accountability - we aren't judging you for what you eat, we are here to support you in every way possible!

Here to a great June!

Sometimes taking a step back and adjusting the goals back to a simpler way can work wonders. Here's to a better month for us both!
