Ruby Reports 10/19.11..
Since last Wednesday October 12th,
I walked 5 days with a total of 12 miles.
I didn't make my goal of 3 miles 6 days. But,
The 12 miles over 5 days is better than my previous 3 weeks.
So, I didn't reach my goal...but, I am in forward progress.
Give yourself credit for small progresses!
I ate out, twice but, did try to eat healthy this last week.
I lost 1 pound...(but, I am still up from an initial loss
of 16 pounds in August)
Being out of town and trying to stay on a
healthy path can be difficult. Planning menus
ahead and planning time ahead for walking
What have you done since last Wednesday
towards a healthier YOU? Maybe just a few steps
more in your day? Or maybe you turned down dessert
and had some fruit instead? Or maybe you just set

Write it down...inspire YOURSELF!
For me...keeping track of my walking
helps me to set small goals (towards the big ones).
Being able to look back on my written progress
I can feel good about my progress
if the goal hasn't been reached. I now write
the number of calories I burn each time.
This helps me to take a second thought about
eating empty calories. I can evaluate how much time
and hard work it would take to burn off that ice cream
or order of fries. Does this ALWAYS work?
I have to be honest. Nope, I still eat stuff
I shouldn't. But, writing down makes me more
aware. I tend to "slip" less.
