We always joke about how short of time we stick to our new year’s resolutions. I think this year is my fastest time of falling away with disinterest. I am uninspired and very much unmotivated.
My first resolution is to keep my blog updated and to visit other blogs. My hope was to use Anti-Procrastination Tuesday as my go-to encouragement to keep up. That lasted one day, and one post. I should have posted in time to link up for yesterday’s link party!
This is a link to the Delightfully Free blog post I read last week about coconut sugar. I’m delighted to say we purchased some and my husband used it in his coleslaw recipe. I am not a huge fan of sweet coleslaw but it was very delicious.
Another resolution I made was to keep my Lose It updated. Lose it is a weight loss and exercise tracking log. I started a log to help encourage my husband with his progress. Turns out, he is way more motivated and pro-active than I intended to be. I find it interesting and fun to keep track of my food and exercise but I am at a good weight. I don’t need to keep track of my food and exercise so I don’t.
Realistically though, everyone should keep track of what they are eating. It’s quite surprising to realize how much food I eat each day. When I keep a log, I think twice about eating all the caramels and ice cream before bed. I like the Lose It program because there is an app for my tablet or I can access my account online. I do wish they had an app for windows phone, but such is the plight of the windows phone user.
Keeping a food journal seems to be the biggest help in losing weight and keeping it off. It is also helpful in achieving and maintaining a healthier eating lifestyle, whatever those changes are for you. Whether you choose a digital journal or a paper journal, I encourage everyone to make this a part of your day.
