Goal 1- Drinking decaf coffee- I’m still doing well with this. Thankfully, the agitation that I was experiencing after quitting caffeine has passed. My friends and co-workers are even happier than I am about this. One more week of success and I’m going to consider this a new habit and take it off of the goal list.
Goal 2- Do some research on finding a way to up my energy now that I’m not drinking caffeine- I found a great article with some ideas that I’ve tried out and it appears to be working. Some of the ones I’m trying is drinking more water, walking around the block, eating oatmeal,almonds and some apples and peanut butter for snack. I was happy to see that my decaf iced lattes count because of the milk. Sadly I’m unable to include the power nap at work. https://www.webmd.com/women/features/10-energy-boosters#1
Goal 3- Up my workout goal to 4 times a week – I was successful with this goal plus one. I did four True Beginner workouts in the mornings and went kayaking with my inspirational daughter on Saturday. We were so excited that the weather was favorable for getting out on the water. It’s been a long time since I’ve been out. Unfortunately we got horrible burns on our legs, but all in all it was worth it. Next time I”’ remember the sunscreen.
Goal 4- Eat a veggie snack a day- Still a problem. I wish I liked drinking vegetable juice, because that would make it easy, but I can’t stand the taste.
Goal 5- Try to write more often- I’m excited to be able to blog this week. Here lately I’ve only been able to write every other week. I’ll count this as a win.
It’s been a productive week! Stay tuned for next week’s goals.
Eat Well and Prosper!
