Just 4 today, I’m going to drink 2 liters of water, walk 3 miles (I walked 4.5 yesterday) and take my fiber supplement twice. I’ve also begun following The Hacker’s Diet so tonight I need to pick up a nice binder (something worthy of this project) and dividers. And I’m also going to look closely at the meal planning section.
I’ve noticed a trend. Most days when I sit down to write this section, it comes out as you see it in the first paragraph. But as I type, I think, take that fiber supplement now — don’t wait. So I do. And I have to drink too (huge) glasses of water with it. Then I come back to the keyboard and update that first sentence so it looks like this:
Just 4 today, I’m going to drink 2 liters of water (I’ve drunk 2/3s), walk 3 miles (I walked 4.5 yesterday) and take my fiber supplement twice (I’ve taken it once!).
And I did all that today too. But I thought that just this once, I’d split my report into the goal and update phases. Because it seems like a powerful message. It’s so easy to get up and do that one thing (and too easy to put it off.) Yet it gets a huge bit of my daily goals done. I think I’ll put this lesson to use tonight when I pop in to report on my walking progress. So far, I always plan to take that supplement later (and I’m not as good about taking it in the evening as I should be).
I should just get up from the keyboard and take it right then.
