This is the time last year when it began to fall off the wheels for me.
I am aware of it and am taking precautions….
Still, little nervous heading into the winter, it’s one thing to know what needs to be done in the short days and long night, it’s another to do it.
Step one towards maintaining focus is to remove distraction…. I am NOT renewing my WoW account over the winter. It’s hard enough to be motivated to get out and move my butt when it’s dark, snowing and 20 below out there, it would be so much WORSE if I have the added distraction of sitting down in front of my computer for an hour or so and zoning out.
Step two is to plan ahead for certain things looming on the horizon. My week away for work training, the long days and grind that is inventory. Have meals ready, stay away from the donuts, etc that inevitably appear at these times. Have a bag of healthy goodies within reach, apples, oranges etc to make life a little easier…
Step three is to ask for fitness related stuff for Christmas lol…. snow shoes are the top of my list.
There will be more, but it’s comforting to know a game plan is forming….
I am now FORTY-NINE days down on my Year of NO Fast Food Pledge
