    Default Commence the Challenge. Lettuce Eat!

    I'm going to log and rate each day of the 2014 challenge. Hoping that this will help me stay motivated. In general this year, I have made it my goal to embrace the fluff. I am always very focused and almost always serious. So I have resolved to add more Se to my life.

    And until I find a partner that will cook for me, I have started a salad club at work. It's called Lettuce Eat! That name is so corny, but I love it.

    I have 3 diet goals (4 including continuing the salad club), and 3 exercise goals (If you can even call them that) so far. They are extremely easy so that I stay motivated.

    Diet

    1) Drink more water daily. I know I don't drink enough.
    2) Have some raw or steamed vegetables at least twice a week. (NOT including salad day, so technically 3 days a week!)
    3) Take my time eating, chew more, and chew slower. Enjoy what I eat, and really take the time to taste the food I'm eating.

    Exercise

    1)Devote time to exercise at least once a week. (Eventually I want to build up to 4 or 5x a week.)

    Including but not limited to:

    a. Exercising with a coworker on lunch
    b. yoga
    c. walking/running with the dog
    d. tai chi
    e. my workout dvd

    2) Do breathing exercises in the car, on the ride to work everyday to stay in the present moment and relax.
    3) Do a moving meditation practice/or crunches once a week.

    *Weekly Rates are based on a scale of 1 to 10. Daily Rates are based on a scale of 1 to 5. Goals and Rates are subject to change.

    Day 1: The 6th

    Daily Rate: 2/5

    I had a burger for the first time in over 6 months. Ha ha probably not the best day to have one, with just starting this an all , but I ate it really slow and loved every minute of it. I found it quite difficult to eat slowly though. With everything, I am always shocked at how much I actually practice a bad habit/behavior when I try to stop it.

    I did good on drinking water though.

    No exercise.

    Day 2: The 7th

    Daily Rate: 2/5

    I did the breathing in my car but not that long, so I'm not going to count it. That's a habit I've been working on the past couple months, cause when you drive a mountain everyday, it can get pretty tense, especially now in the snow.

    Better today with the water.

    I am going to want to step it up a little with my eating habits. *determined face*

    Day 3:

    Daily Rate: 3/5

    -I'm doing good with water.
    -I had 1 outta 2 veggie req for the week
    -I did 4 sets of 10 reps for crunches and I did stretches today. yay me.

    I may consider adding daily stretching to the list. I always feel better afterwards.

    Day 4:

    Daily Rate: 2/5

    Eh just water and I did ok at slowing down my eating. Still have to get more serious about it though. It's like I get so hungry cause I don't eat for so long, and then I get the feeling that I have to hurry while I eat. This is a harder habit to break than I thought.

    I will hopefully be doing exercise tomorrow with a friend. yay.

    Day 5:

    Daily Rate: 3/5

    Water: check
    Eating slower: check
    Exercise: check

    I did 5 sets of 15 reps for crunches. And did about 15 push ups... I nearly died.

    I have forgotten how bad my upper body strength is.

    I didn't work the past 2 days so I didn't need to do my breathing.

    It can help to concentrate on the taste and texture of the food as you chew. Gives your mind something else to think about instead of just how hungry you are.

    Yes! That's exactly what I try to do. I just have let this habit go for too long, unchecked. I have become a person that wants instant gratification...and it's not just diet -wise

    So I am really working on slowing down in a lot of ways, but I'm just so impatient. >.<

    I can already feel a difference though. I get fuller faster. Which is awesome.

    Thanks for the input!

    Day 6:

    Daily Rate: 2/5

    I did my breathing and ate slowly.

    To be honest, I'm not sure why, but I'm just not feeling it. I'm not taking this seriously at all.

    I am normally pretty determined...and usually can break a habit pretty quickly. I know I must have some mental block about this or something.

    I feel good today though.

    I have gotten my sleep back on schedule...

    So today's the last day I have left to eat more veggies. And I am going to do the salad thing for work today too.

    I know my issue with food is convenience. If it's there I'll eat it, but outta sight outta mind. That, and I'm impatient. I'm working on that though.
