- Keeping up with cardio. I've been feeling fantastic since I decided last week to fit cardio into my NRL4W plan, even though I'm not "supposed" to. I know what makes me feel good, and while I want to listen to and respect experts, I also want to do what makes me happier and healthier, and so I'll continue.
- Throwing away the meal plan. In the past, I've planned out my meals and snacks for the week to keep me in check. I've learned that with my new life circumstances (school, restaurant work, etc), this doesn't really fly anymore, and in fact just makes me feel a little anxious and like a failure for having to deviate from the plan. The new (and possibly better) plan is to simple keep all the ingredients for that would-be-planned meal and just choose to eat it. This accomplishes two things: a feeling of choice, and a solidification of the lessons I've learned with Weight Watchers. I'm changing my attitude toward food. Plus, if all I have is the makings for a healthy meal, that's what I'm going to have.
- Maturity and Patience. I loved this goal last week. It's a reality of my life now. It should have been all along, but I wasn't in the situation to practice it because my relationship was a couple of babies throwing things at each other and trying to hurt the other. A sad picture, but we all learn our lessons somewhere. I've always been blunt, and I like that honesty about myself, but I could be more gentle in my honesty, and while I'm learning to be open with my feelings, I also need to learn to censor some of the things other people don't need to hear. It's a confusing jumble, but just in the way I'm committed to bettering my body and my health, I'm committed to becoming a better person over all, and a better partner to Paul and a better friend to my friends and a better everything!
- Positive Self-Talk. Still love this goal.
- Strength Training. As I've said a couple times, I'm pretty nervous about adding that 3rd set to my NRL4W workouts, but I promise to do them anyway. And do them right. And keep adding strength and hotness to my body.
Alright now. It's Thanksgiving. I'm still deciding how I'm going to go about this.
