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 #101 - Go To Your Room and Think About What You've Done

Today was probably the worst day I've had in quite a while.  I drank my water and had a healthy breakfast, but that's about it.  My boss took me out to lunch; I ordered water to drink, but ate more than I really needed to.  At dinner time Mrs. FogDog was not with it either, so we decided to get pizza.  I had 3 slices.   

When you were a kid did you ever get sent to your room to "think about what you've done"?  That happened to me quite a bit.  After dinner I was feeling kind of lazy, so I sent myself up to my room to think about what I did today.  Of course anyone who has been following me for a while knows that my room is a construction zone right now.  I had to apply leveling compound to my bathroom floor so I spent some time up there working and thinking about my day.

What's strange is that I really can't think of a reason why I did what I did today.  I'm not tired, I'm not in a bad mood, there was nothing that made the day more stressful than yesterday.  For some reason today I just caved in and didn't follow my plan.  I finished my work upstairs and felt a little better but walked away still not knowing what caused me to fail today.

I don't feel guilty and there are no excuses.  Today just simply happened.  Thankfully it's almost over and I can get right back at it tomorrow.

Stay Strong!


  1. You know, not feeling guilty and with no excuses, and able to move forward and get right back to it? It may be that your body just needed it. Sometimes a little boost of calories actually helps to shed weight if you go right back to it. Boosts the metabolism. I think it's good you have no excuses and such. I think maybe your body was telling you something, AND you know that's not going to happen the next day :)

  2. You Must " get right back at it tomorrow "

    Day 102 here you come .........back on plan.

    All the best Jan
