Holistic Health: Weekly Set Up 5/11/12

Why Am I Doing This: When dieting, binging and eating distress has become a significant part of your existence, any attempts to change your habits may still be laced with unhealthy thought patterns. To make sure that I am not taken over by calorie counts, exercise minutes or weigh ins, I am setting small weekly goals under four headings: Fitness, Food, Motivation and Wellness.

How Do I Keep Track: I keep a small note at the end of each day on how I felt I did in each category and also write a quick summary on a Sunday night of what I need to work on (e.g. drink more water, make time to meditate, etc.)

Review of Last Week: It was my last week of placement, so the thirteen hour shifts did get in the way once or twice. I rejigged some of my fitness plan, but I got everything but yoga done (I opted to spend time with T instead and I do not regret it.) Meditation didn’t really happen, I aimed for every day and and only got about four in. I also got my time in for knitting, reading and music. Food wise, I was on target most days, except for the night before Halloween when I went overboard with the bread and was sick at 4am. That knocked some sense back into me anyway. Here’s to this week.
