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 #75 - The Dreaded Weekend

Most people look forward to the weekend.  Not me, not this weekend anyway.  As the work day drew to a close I started to think about that familiar Friday night feeling... A stiff drink, some chips, and a movie.  Well I can tell you that didn't happen.

Instead we went to an art show.  The county school system put on an art show featuring works from all the public schools.  I couldn't believe how huge it was; I was really impressed with the amount of work that they put into the event.  My oldest had 2 works featured at the show so we made a night of it.  After seeing the art we celebrated the first day of spring with a trip to the local ice cream shop.  I got a single scoop on a cone... I don't think I've ever gotten a single scoop on a cone.

Anyway it was a fun night after a solid week eating healthy.  No eating out and sticking to my plan for 5 days (minus the single scoop on the cone).  I drank a gallon of water every day, and I also walked at lunch time 4 out the 5 days this week including 2.25 miles today at the mall.

However, the real test comes this weekend.  I will consider it a success if I can simply refrain from drinking any alcohol.  Healthy eating all weekend and a little exercise will just be gravy.  My thought is to just stay busy. 

I'm actually looking forward to getting on the scale tomorrow to see my weight.  I'm sure it's not a question of if, but rather how much I lost.  I'll report the results tomorrow.  I've now made it through 75 days of my 360 day journey; on to day #76.

Stay Strong!
