I finally have another goal to work towards. We will be seeing a large group of our family in two months and I would like to look my best. I started my day by riding my bike for an hour and then I walked around town and I really think I can hit my 10,000 step goal for the day. I went to the store to get breakfast and lunch for the week and dinner for two nights. This will take me to Friday when I plan to have a cheap happy hour dinner and then cook at home Saturday and Sunday. Of course it's Monday so we all know about the best made plans. I work one evening this week and in the past that's been a trigger for me to spontaneously drink and over eat.
The other thing that is affecting me currently is that we are broke from all the moving expenses and having just been on vacation and the tooth emergency. In some ways it's a good way to be forced to do the things you know you're supposed to do. My goals include eating in which is convenient since I can't really afford to go out. It also made me follow through and get a library card. We have a great library and I should be taking advantage of it! The weather is fantastic in Portland right now so that really helps with my motivation.
