So I am working again on #7daychip Currently on day 2. I have a ton of goals set for myself to go along with my Journey to Health.
So since you asked, my current goals for my #7daychip are, while small for most are ambitious for me. Since it is about me I get to say it is a struggle!
Water Water Water. Last time I attempted my chip (and failed) I wanted to consume 1 PriorFatGirl bottle of water a day. I am SEVERELY underhydrated. I know this. On average I am lucky if I consume 36 ounces of fluid a day. So this time I am going for gusto! Minimum of 3 PFG water bottles a day. More is better, in fact more is AWESOME!!! I got in 5 on my first day. I am tracking them with rubber bands on the bottle.
Start staying UNDER or just at my caloric limit. The last few weeks I have been letting myself slide around on my calories. I try to limit my calorie intake to 1500/day. The doctor said this is a good place for me to be to achieve my long-term success. I am okay with it. Unfortunately my food diary wont let me set the calories right at 1500. It likes to calculate what it thinks I need. So some weeks it wants 1518 and some weeks it wants 1495. Not a big deal right? Right, however I keep saying, okay well 1525 isn’t that bad, then I look and weeks of 25 extra calories a day start adding up and it is slowing me down!
Take your pills! I am REALLY bad at remembering to take my medicine. Not just vitamins, but my actual everyday required medicines! For years I have been on prescription meds and for years I have tried to remember to take them. I have set alarms on my phone, put big poster sized notes on the door, left the pills in obvious places and I still mess it up. So part of my chip plan is to be less dippy and take my meds on time every time!
You are worth it. This isn’t a food goal, but something I need to work on none the less. I look in the mirror and tell myself something good about myself out loud. My god is this embarrassing. I don’t like this one. I can’t believe I put it on the list. I think maybe I should write them down in a book but that will be for another day.
So while there is not a lot to my #7daychip goal list it is a start. My other goals I am working at right now are hit the 250 lb. mark (at which point there will be a nice surprise here on the website! so stay tuned!!) I also still want to do a 5k, but I need to find one that works with my schedule, meaning not on a Saturday and we all know I will only be walking it. No running stupid knees! So there ya have it!
Oh!! Before I go in NSV news I can now use the tall skinny ladder in our warehouse to get to the high shelves and pull parts. I was never able to do this before. While I am still afraid of heights, I can now get to those shelves!!!
