Short term goals for 2013
I've been reading about a lot of people making short term goals rather than New Years resolutions and I think there is some merit to that so I'm setting a few for the month:
1. Blog once a week (hopefully on a Monday)
2. Drink more water (I'll do this by drinking a glass of water before every meal which equals about 5 plus a day, that's a start anyway)
It's summer down here in New Zealand and its a HOT, STICKY one. In other words, you can't get away from the heat unless you're swimming. I feel like I'm constantly sweating. Therefore my running has taken a long holiday as even at 6am it's too hot :-( that and the fact I've fallen into the bad habit of staying up late and 6am is just too early.
I start back at work this year (after 2 years of maternity leave) but only for 2 days a week. I think I'm looking forward to it.
So where am I with Dukan? Well I've stocked up on lots of proteins today and my garden is full of beans and cucumbers and tomatoes, although with it being so dry, I'm not sure I'll be getting my usual bumper crops (photo from last year). I lost 1kg this week, which is approximately 2 pounds, which is okay as I didn't stick to the diet religiously.
And my last thought for the week: my favourite thing about the Dukan diet is... I don't have to record what I eat... weight watches, atkins, etc... they all require you to count or record and I got SOOOOO over that in the past. Hello Dukan!!!
Let's encourage each other to lose this year and to finally reach our goals and stay there! What is your favourite thing about your diet?
