Momentum Keeps Me Going

I know it’s not Monday. But, like I told you Monday, I do weigh myself daily. And today I was down below another number I haven’t seen in years. I won’t tell you the number, I don’t want to spoil Monday!

I wasn’t sure what I wanted to post about today, I  had today and yesterday off, I was able to get a lot done around the house. I even went out to dinner last night and had an amazing chicken sandwich with a ciabatta roll. I also had a piece of chocolate fudge cake. It was very good – the sandwich and the cake. So why did I have the cake? I planned for it. I had a small breakfast and healthy lunch, so I was able to spare my points. I also went for a 1.5 mile walk during the day.

I don’t have desert often mind you – it’s rare, I’ve had desert maybe 5 times since starting weight watchers over 130 days ago. And most of those were when I traveled for work to Atlanta, and they fed us!

I know it’s okay to have cake now and then, just not every single day. I use an app called Momentum to track my daily habits. Once you start checking off the days for something, it’s harder to stop doing whatever the habit is. You see the days grow and it psychologically keeps me going. I also tracing brushing my teeth twice a day – sounds stupid, but sometimes at night I get lazy! (Who doesn’t – admit it.) With this app, I know I have to log if I did or didn’t do it – and I have to keep my streak alive!

You could honestly use it for any habit! You can set it for a certain number of days a week, like working out 5 days a week. If you track five days in the week, you’re good.

What are some other habits you track? Or ones you think would be beneficial to track?
