Fat to Fit at 59

My quest to lose 50 pounds in 150 days. (Now that you know about it, I'm committed.)

Day 78—I think I might write about Procrastination—later February 1, 2010

With all you have to do, where is exercise on your to-do list? (Oh heck, I just realized that I typed in 2009 for the date above. Sorry!)

I don’t know about you, but the tasks on my daily to-do list always outnumber the lines available to record them on my calendar. So it’s easy to look at that long list and think (’cause you’ve recorded tasks as they came to you—not in priority order), OK, what do I want to cross off my list next?

What’s your answer? For me, the answer is usually: What can I get done fastest and with the least effort?

So we all know where that puts a 30-minute (or more) run on the list: wwaaaayyyy down at the bottom!

I propose putting exercise at the top of the list. Whether that means making a “starter list” and transposing that in priority order onto your “real” calendar, or physically numbering your entries in the order you intend to tackle them, or…whatever. Starting today, exercise is my #1 priority each day.

If you have more tips to keep from procrastinating to the point of omission, please share!

 

Day 64—Weigh-In Day January 18, 2010

Here we go...

OK, I have to apologize for my lack of blogging consistency the past few days. I’ll blame it on house showings and the related cleaning and put-it-away-get-it-back-out home-staging cycle.

But it’s been worth it—I’ve received two offers, so the cycle is nearing its end.

The process has been far more fun than I anticipated! I’ve totally enjoyed helping people fall in love with my house. If economic times were better and I thought this small town could support it, I’d consider doing it as a business!  😉

Anyhow, roll those drums. Here’s this week’s weigh-in:
