1. Cook 2 new recipes at home.
I just today finished reading the book Ravenous, and I love the way Macy explains her obsession with food and they we she is trying to overcome them. I too believe I am obsessed with food and I feel that part of my healing will come from cooking my own meals at home. I am going to slowly try to eliminate almost all processed foods and really work on eating more plants and less meat.
2. Finish all fundraising cards and thank you notes.
I have now proudly made it to 52% of my fundraising goal for my walk. I am still needing just over $1,100 to complete that goal and to raise the funds I have hand made some cards to send to close friends and family asking for their help. I have sent out 10 with an overwhelming response to help, so if I send out the 40 I have left I should meet my goal before the walk in November.
3. Read for 1 hour daily.
Part of my healthy living strategy is to reduce stress. One of my favorite ways to do this is through reading. I love all kinds of books and I love reading right before bed to get my mind relaxed and calm.
4. Do my daily training for my Susan G. Komen walk.
I have been less than thrilled with my training walks for this event. I have not been doing what I need to do as far as preparing myself physically for this walk. I am afraid I will get there and not be able to finish...I hate not finishing what I start.
5. Track every thing that goes into my mouth 6 days this week.
I am a firm believer that if you have to write down everything you eat you will think twice before putting into your mouth. I have been using Sparkpeople's free nutrition tracker to keep tabs on my eating.
