However, I have a running bet with my mom and sister in terms of behavior, and we have just set new goals for the time between now and the Broad Street Run. I had fun working on them, so here they are. As always, I prefer behavior goals to weight loss goals, because while you can control weight loss to a degree, you really can't live by the scale. So here are the goals I can control:
-Follow the Broad Street Run training program. Except in the event of sickness or injury, complete every run. If scheduling gets in the way of a run, I'll make it up the next day.
-Continue with the hundred pushups challenge. I'm in the middle of week 3 and my arms are aching, but I can do 17 pushups without stopping!
-Continue to write down everything I eat and make a good-faith effort to track points.
-If/When eating out, leave something on my plate. It doesn't matter how much, but I always eat every bite. Last week I left part of the meal on my plate and it felt so liberating! I didn't have to savor the last bite as though it were the last thing I'd ever taste! I just stopped when I got full and let someone else eat the rest.
Wish me luck!
