Don't Focus on the Goal...

If you've followed this blog you know that I've struggled for many years with improving my health. I've finally reached a point where I've managed to maintain a small amount of success. Now it's time to take the next step, but I believe it requires a new way of thinking.

Instead of trying to get healthy, why not shift focus toward learning how to build healthy habits instead. Follow me as I try to teach myself how to Engineer healthy habits that will allow me to take my health to the next level. Let's see where this experiment goes!

Day #61 - Looking Back

Today I start a weeklong vacation!  I'm not going anywhere, the kids have school, but I'm going to start remodeling my master bathroom and bedroom.  The in-laws are coming to visit this weekend so I won't really get started until Monday, but then I'll be ripping out the old blue shower and toilet along with the 80's style baby blue floor tiles.  I'll take pictures along the way to show my progress; next week I should be getting plenty of exercise.

Looking back, this has been a pretty good week.  Not great, not bad, just good.  Originally I thought I would only weigh once a month, but I'm already curious so don't be surprised if I post my weight tomorrow.  Anyway, this week was all about getting back in the habit of eating healthy.  All week long I brought my lunch to work except for today, and when I went out today I ordered a salad.  As for water, I did really well at the start of the week, but trailed off a little in the last 2 days.  It wasn't for a lack of trying, I've noticed the more busy I get at work, the less water I drink and getting ready for vacation kept me hopping for the last 2 days.  Other than some chips and a little alcohol (yeah I know) last night, I was healthy all week long. 

If I do stand on the scale tomorrow I'm pretty confident I'll see a loss.  Day #61 in the books, on to day #62

Stay Strong!


  1. A good day in a week (health wise) is so much better than a day before you start this 360 days turn around. Keep at it FD, they will all added up to great success.

  2. Thanks Richard, before I only noticed the bad days during the week. Now I try to focus on the good days and minimize the bad.
