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 #100 - Even When You Don't Want To

Has it really been 100 days?  If you had told me 100 days ago that I would be where I'm at today and still going strong I probably would've bet 5 to 1 odds against making it this far.  But here I stand and still going strong I might add.  I was thinking today how I've managed to find a way to force myself to do stuff.  No, I don't twist my own arm and it doesn't involve punching myself in the face.  What I mean is that I find myself doing things even when I don't want to.

There are times when I just don't feel like posting a blog.  I'm tired and I just want to go to bed.  But for some reason I go over to the computer and I bang out a post.  I do it because I said I would. 

Tonight was another example; I got home and all I wanted to do was lay on the couch.  It was a long and stressful day and I didn't feel like doing anything.  However, I told myself that every time I take a night off from doing anything then I'm just getting that much closer to going back to being like I was 100 days ago.  Instead I went upstairs and did a little work on the bathroom remodel.  It was only an hour but it was an hour doing something instead of watching something.

Another strong day in the books and the end of my first 100 days.  On to 101.

Stay Strong!
