On the right track

Tuesday, May 03, 2011

Ok so today, I talked to my Health Coach Roger for the first time!

My work offers many ways to make healthy lifestyle changes and in fact encourages it by offering us $25.00 toward our medical insurance each month if we earn 100 points per quarter. So I'm in!!!! What the heck right?

Roger set a few small goals for me until our next conversation on June 7.

I will be switching from my regular cocktails (vodka and cranberry) during the week to a glass of wine (which is a very big step for me) I can treat myself to a few cocktails one night of the weekend.

I will add a fiber snack to one of my snacks each day.

I will try.... to eat something within 30 minutes of waking up each morning, if I can't eat anything I will have an 8 oz glass of water or decaf tea.

I will and this is going to be the biggest challenge for me (I hate exercise) get 30 minutes 4 -5 days a week Roger says 5 I say I'll try to do 4.

I'm really excited, I hope this is what I need to finally make the changes in my life that I need to reach my goals.

    These are great! Realistic and honest, which is so important! And how's it going so far?

    I love that your employer offers that kind of incentive -- pretty awesome!

    You have some realistic goals set. I can sympathize with you about exercise. My DIL gave me a lead early this week on Yogi on TV and I have recorded 7 hrs. but have not taken it on yet. I have looked at it and think with some modification, I can do it. You might look into something like this too. I know you can do it and even with a holiday tomorrow, it can work!!

    Happy Mother's day. May it dawn bright and cheery for you!
