SMART Habit Saturday 6/9/07

Well I have had about 2 weeks of HORRIBLE goal keeping. HORRIBLE. H O R R I B L E. Did I mention I didn't do very well?

The only goal I have kept is reading my bible and praying every day. I started again on Friday with no soda, so I am on day two with that. Everything else is pretty much gone.

I have not been feeling as "peppy" lately so I am going to work on doing things to make myself feel (physically) better. I am going to add a few habits this week, instead of just one, because I need to see results quickly. They are all on my mind quite a bit, so I think it shouldn't be too hard. It is all just one BIG habit of "taking care of myself." Here are the parts:
1. no soda, just water all day and more of it
2. take vitamins and iron everyday
3. walk everyday
4. fruit with breakfast
5. veggie with lunch
6. no junk food (we have a bunch of junk food from the trip, I am going to throw that all away tomorrow night)

Okay, those are my goals for this week.

I can do this! In fact, I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me.(Phil 4:13)

Here is a recap of my goals:
wk 1: praying and bible reading yes
wk 2: referring to planner everyday no
wk 3: get off computer at 9am and off for rest of day well I did really good on this since I didn't have easy access to a computer for most of last week! LOL
wk 4: new laundry schedule and laundry put away every day mostly
wk 5: stopped caffeine --started again yesterday
wk 6: added fruit to breakfast --no
wk 7: added veggie to lunch --no
wk 8: portion sizes --no
wk 9: writing down what I eat every day --on hold
wk 10: walking every day only one day
wk 11: re-working on everything
wk 12: getting Kaedy bug fed on time didn't have to worry about it while she was in hospital!
wk 12: making a schedule and sticking to it on hold
wk 13: no TV during day for kids I think that's all they did while I was gone! They are grounded from it right now, so it should be easy. :-)

Sometimes we just don't do as well as we think we ought to. But, like you are doing, we just need to acknowledge our weakness and get up and try, Try again! Good luck this week!

Rebecca said...

Isn't it great that we get a fresh start each week? And let me add that the two habits you are doing are the most important - so yay! for you. Good luck this week, your new habits sound great & I'm sure will help you get back to feeling like yourself again.

You kept the important ones - bible reading and praying!!!!

Myth said...

sounds like you had a pretty tough week - with your little girl in hospital & so far from home, you didn't have time to think about other habits :) Good luck getting back on track & I pray she recovers well!

Kahri, you need to be kind to yourself and cut yourself some slack :)!! These last two weeks for you and your family have been really rough, but look how well you all survived? Just baby step back into it. I hope you find peace and happiness this week!

I have banned soft drinks from the house, too. Let me just say, that is MAJOR for me. I have started to walk, too. I've only done it a couple of times, but I'm working at being many things.

Also, just keep in mind what a week you've had with Kaedra and the stress that goes with it. If you've kept up Bible reading and praying, you've done well. This is where grace and mercy come into play!! You're doing great, and God is pleased.

Susanne said...

Sister, if I didn't know better I would swear you have been peeking right into my planner!! We share so many of the same goals, and like you I have been struggling. But you are right, we can do ALL THINGS through Christ!! And HIS word is ALIVE and ACTIVE in us, and its purposes can and WILL be accomplished IN us through HIS POWER!! AMEN!!!
I will be praying for you in these endeavors. You are a precious Sister in Christ. Thanks for the "welcome back" as well as all your encouraging comments. Have a great night!

You will do great this week. Just stick with the basics if you have to!

Don't stress! If you could only keep two, you kept the ones that mattered. Just start again this week.

Slava Bogu!
