Making Good Choices

Well, after a long talk with a friend in Oregon, I’ve decided to start blogging about the good choices I make in my life.

I want to lose weight, but I refuse to diet. Everytime I start a diet, I fail, miserably and quickly.

So, instead, I’m going to start making good choices.

This week, so far, these are the good choices I’ve made.

Starting Sunday I started drinking lots of water. Sunday, Monday and Tuesday I drank more than 80 ozs a day (they were incredibly hot days). Wednesday, I didn’t drink as much, but I did drink water, same with Thursday. Today I already have my cup in front of me and have started. I would like to drink at least 64 ozs a day, if not more.

Another good choice I’ve made is cutting way back on Diet Coke (my carbonated beverage of choice). I’m down to 2 cans a day.

Yesterday and Today I took Duchess for a walk. She’s a border collie who has to smell everything. This morning we did 1/2 mile in 20 minutes. Tuesday I spent the day chasing 43 children and 9 other adults at the Tracy Aviary. I count that as exercise!

So, I need cheerleaders. I need those who will ask me, even in an unrelated post, what good choices I’ve made. Will ya’ll do that for me?

    What a great idea. Every little bit counts! I’m the same with diets, but enough good choices is what leads to a healthier lifestyle.

    Good on you – even though the diet cola has no calories, it still helps to perpetuate sugar cravings.

    Hooray for you! I’ve been doing the same lately – cutting back on soda and drinking more water. Baby steps, and all. 😀

    I hate diets and counting calories. Eating less at every meal is my motto.
