Setting My First Goal

 

By starting this blog my main goal is to have it help me achieve the health goals I set for myself. I’m hoping that by choosing to do this publicly I will get encouragement and feel more accountable and make the right choices.

That being said I’m going to put some focus on a goal I have been really struggling with. I REALLY want to cut out all ‘junk food’ from my diet. Junk food is such a board term and means something different to everyone so the first thing I need to do is define what junk food means to me. This was tough because as I sit here typing this Im thinking of all the sweets Im going to miss like my Hershey Kisses, Smarties, ice cream, licorice, cookies that are not homemade, chips and the list could go on! Great now Im having some cravings. Junk food to me would also include fast food like McDonalds, Burger King and Pizza Hut. Pop and other sugary drinks would also be catorgorized under the junk food label to me. Its seems like a lot when I write it out but I know I can do this! To summarize my junk food is sugar, chocolate, chips, take out, and any sugary drinks.

Now that I have figured out the things I want to eliminate I need to pick my first route (I’m worried and planning on there being many attempts at this and I will blog about every last one I try) and after talking with a friend of mine I have decided to first try on my own by tackling one thing at a time which worked with me when I started eliminated other things when I started losing weight with Weight Watchers. I’ve decided to cut out sugary drinks (except for my one morning coffee or I don’t think the boys and I will make it though the day) and I will focus on this for the next week.

 

My goal: No Sugary Drinks (minus my morning coffee) for the entire week

How will I accomplish my goal: I will replace any pop, juice or any other sweetened drinks with water and If I feel I need flavoured water I will add fresh sliced citrus or berries to my water.

 

There it is my very first mini goal set and I will update everyone on how I am doing at the end of the week even if I fail horribly. Hopefully I succeed and I get one step closer to being a slave to junk food.

  1. I don’t know if it helps, but good quality dark chocolate provides a lot of important health benefits. It raises endorphin levels, helps cut risk of heart failure by as much as a third, helps reduce stress and could actually help with weight loss.

    Naturally you don’t want to eat Hershey’s or other junk chocolate, but quality chocolate is something that if you can eat in moderation, you get more positives than negatives. (especially since without the fillers, it takes less to satisfy you)

    • Thanks Chris, I didn’t know dark chocolate did all that. I do prefer dark chocolate over the other stuff, which I do find too sweet, now I have an excuse for eating dark chocolate.
