Well, I’ve made it to the end of Round 2. For a quick refresher on my goals for this round, they were to
- Drink at least 64 oz. of water a day and less Mountain Dew
- Try to exercise on my “newish” exercise bike 20-30 minutes a day
- Read my Bible more
I can proudly say that since Resolutions in Motion Round 1, I have had hardly ANY Mountain Dew! I would say no more than 5 Mt. Dew beverages in the last 12 weeks! I think this go around, I might have two instances where I had a Mountain Dew while out or when I ran into the convenience store as a treat/pick me up. I’ve been sticking to water, PowerAde, and this morning I’m actually drinking Blueberry and Pomegranate Green Tea! Yeah, I know! I feel like a grownup, lol. I have a great accountability partner though. My work friend, Yvonne, has got me taking vitamins and I’m feeling better than I have been here lately.
Now, exercise? I exercised, maybe three days. I went about a mile on the bike which took roughly 5 minutes. My goal was to move up to 2 miles, then 3, etc. Yeap, even though it was only 5-6 minutes a night, I slacked off. Haven’t done it since =/ I did see this nifty idea on Pinterest pinned from Diet Girl and think I want to give it a try. Then pin says it basically takes 21 days to make something a habit. As each day passes, you pull a Post-It off! I think the visual would help me.
My third goal was to start reading my Bible more. Sadly, I didn’t make this goal either. I’m ashamed to admit that, especially since I’ve been praying more and asking for guidance. My guidance lays in the written Word so I’m starting today during my lunch break. My doctor visits, vitamins, and whatnot haven’t helped tremendously so I feel like the something that is missing is the Lord’s medicine. I’m just sorry that it has taken me the whole six week challenge to realize this.
Cheers to all my fellow participants in the Resolutions in Motion series whether you nailed it, grazed some or one of your goals like myself, or completely forgot, lol! If there’s a round three, maybe I’ll see ya there =)
