Stop wishing, start acting!

Right, I have spent the past few days wishing I had more self-control, wishing I was thin, beating myself up for failing or not even trying in the first place, but not actually DOING anything! Enough is enough. I am the only one who can change things or make things happen in terms of my body and weight and health. I need to stop talking and start doing!

There is no point in making grand plans or big goals, I will just be setting myself up to fail again and putting myself under so much pressure that I just don't need. From now on, there is no failure. I need smaller, more realistic goals if I'm ever going to get anywhere. The areas of my life that I need to change are pretty huge and complex. I need to break all of that down into baby steps that I can gradually work on.

So, each week I am setting myself 3 small goals. I will reflect on these at the end of each week, and then set myself 3 more for the week ahead. Simple!

Here are my goals for this week:

1. Use the Noom app on my phone to log all my meals. Sticking within the calorie allowance isn't important, just use it every day to log every single thing eaten.

2. Go jogging three times this week, using the Couch to 5k programme.

3. Have porridge with a different topping for breakfast every day this week.

If you decide to do something similar I'd love to read your goals - leave a link in the comments below!
