Gettin' the job done. Slowly.
I walked another 5K this weekend and while it was cold and very windy I did it. And I did it four minutes faster than I did last weekend! I was amazed that I'd completed it any faster than last weekend because at some points I had such a strong headwind that I felt like I had stopped walking. Lucky for me I had a 60 pound yellow lab to keep me going! Now if only the weather would improve because while I will walk when it's cold I will not walk outside when it is raining.
The meeting topic this week was all about tracking, which I do pretty religiously. I use tracking to remind me what I've eaten. In the past I have eaten things and then completely forgotten what I ate or how much and just out of habit or boredom I will eat something else. Over time, clearly, this adds up. So I use the eTools and iPhone app to track what I eat and how much activity I get. Plus I know that when I have a bad week I know I can look back at the good weeks and find out what I did and where I need to improve.
So what do you do to keep yourself on track?
What do you do to motivate yourself when mother nature isn't cooperating?
