New take on an old goal

So, I am not giving up on my goal to exercise more and make healthier eating choices. I just decided that my approach wasn't working and I needed to try something new. So, I'm going to get another alarm clock and hopefully wake up 15 minutes earlier to be able to get 10 minutes of yoga in before I go to work. I'm also going to buy a bunch of fresh vegetables to take with me to work. My healthy eating idea is to try to eat a serving of vegetables every day.

Anybody else resolved to get back to their New Year's Resolutions?

  1. One of my friends has tried a little different approach to resolutions this year. Instead of making sweeping goals that are hard for anyone to keep, she makes new goals each week. Some might be repeats, others are new. Often these goals are also more reward based. Such as 'I will spend 10 min each day cleaning up the office. If I do it, then I can browse the internet that day.' So until she does her 10 min - no internet. It's really worked for her. You can see her other goals here: http://icecreamdiary.blogspot.com/

    Personally I'm just focusing on making small adjustments and not getting upset with myself if it doesn't happen everyday ;)

  2. I've tried the "if I do this, then I get to do this thing (but not if I don't do it)" and it didn't work for me primarily because I let myself go ahead and do whatever it is even if I don't do the goal. I'll let you know when this new tactic works (haven't done it yet).

  3. Ha! Ha! Dellit, I love you! I LOVE the new alarm clock idea. It's so funny and I hope I am not offending you by laughing real hard...but it is only because I can see myself in it and think the idea is hillarious. Maybe a different "knock over the head" at 6 a.m. works... ! Ha, ha, ha!:-) Manja

  4. Hey del,
    We should go on a bike ride out to utah lake and back. I have a bike do you think angela would let you borrow her bike? If not maybe jen and scott have bikes we could borrow for an afternoon. Let me know what you think?

  5. A bike ride is a great idea. I know I'll never make it out to Utah Lake, let alone back, so we should take the bikes to wherever we want to bike and then have our bike ride. I'll have to ask Ang. I'll let you know.

  6. I was just thinking the provo river trail has a spot that would be nice for a ride.

  7. Yes. Let's do the Provo River trail. Ang has a bike she said I could borrow (though I should try it out first and make sure I can ride it!). I think it's supposed to rain this weekend, but if it's going to be nice, we could go then.
