I want to be healthy, and right now I'm using food as a crutch in stressful situations. I decided that when a small step is missed it can effect my whole day, like not enough sleep. So I've decided to come up with a few small steps to keep me on track.
1.) Go to bed by 10:00pm every night.
That means lights out, with concentrated effort and eyes shut. It sounds very strict to me, considering I stay up sometimes until 2am chatting with Joel and working.
2.) Water at every meal.
No matter what I'm drinking, I need to have a glass of ice water with it. I think I don't drink enough, and this step should be pretty easy considering I only drink milk or water normally.
3.) Exercise 30 minutes daily.
I never keep up with my goals, but I think making it a daily goal will help keep it a habit. I'm not good with the on one day/ off another. I'm going to think about a Y membership as well. I hope to keep it to a morning routine after my good night's rest! Hopefully I can rise before Joel and Jack so it won't effect my schedule or theirs much.
4.) Take 20 minutes each day to think about the health steps I want to take and where I want to be and read up on it.
And that's it for now. I think although small, these steps will make a big impact on my health and help me make more wise decisions daily. And really, I think these are somewhat tough rules to follow, so in the meantime, they will be my major focus.
Here's to a healthier me! Any health tips appreciated :)
