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 #142 - Back to it After a Holiday

I was right back at it today after the Memorial holiday.  I got my gallon of water in and stuck to my eating plan.  At lunchtime I went for a 2 mile walk with a friend.  It was super hot and humid today and so I was dripping with sweat by the time we got done.  After that I managed to do something I rarely do... I turned down going out for lunch with my friend. 

He didn't bring his lunch so he suggested we stop somewhere quick on the way back from our walk.  I told him I would stop wherever he wanted but I was fine (I had a packed lunch waiting for me back at work).  While he went in and got some food, I used the time to run my car AC and get some of the sweat off me; my shirt was soaked.

I did have a little extra at dinner, but given the rest of the day I think it was a pretty good one.  #142 is in the books, on to #143.

Stay Strong! 


  1. Great job FD! This sounds like a winning day and huge kudos for turning down the lunch and sticking to your plan.

  2. Nice job! :) Turning down lunch with a friend is very difficult for me too. I'm struggling to get my act back together after a week of off and on. I know it'll be easier if I just stick to my guns, and every following day is easier than the prior!

  3. Way to go getting right back on plan and sticking to your packed lunch!

  4. It's really a nice article. Your blog is is nice.
    I've got many effective tips from your blog.
