100 Day Goal

Tuesday, April 14, 2009.....

Last week, my trainer and I discussed goals. She doesn't understand some of her clients that don't have a goal. Goals motivate you, goals give you a reason to excel at something. I've also been told that publicizing your goals motivates you more.

I believe in goals. I create lists of things I want to accomplish for a day, week and even a month. I don't know why, but I ditched the resolution setting on New Year's Day.

Yesterday, I set my 100 day goal. Actually, I have two of them. The main goal is to change my eating to a more alkaline diet. Trust me, when your pH level is out of whack, it SUCKS. However, this means throwing all knowledge of food out the window.

For instance, lemons, which you may think are naturally acidic, break down differently in the body to be an alkaline food. Bread is better if toasted; time of day when an orange is eaten is better than other times. It's very, very confusing. My head is exploding.

Throughout my 100 days, I will share bits and pieces of my process. Right now, I'm creating a list of all the foods I eat, eaten or may eat and determining their acid/alkaline ratio and testing my urine on pH strips (god, it brings back memories of using First Response one too many times).

To counter balance my 'head exploding' goal, I've decided I need to get into a skin care regime. Other than letting water hit my face in the shower and owning some really cool skincare products; I have never taken care of my skin. Wait, do facials count? I believe so, but I think the benefits wear off after 24 months.

These are my goals for the next 100 days. Does anyone have a goal they'd like to do for the next 100 days with me?

I will try to have at least 1 glass of wine every day for 100 days.

Something tells me I'll succeed. ;-)

I have never heard of the alkaline diet? You've got to let us know how it works for you. I'm experiencing some pH balance issues and I could use the help!

LiLu - I love your goal, but it has to be a challenge - I think you should try at least 25 different wines (I figure 4 glasses per bottle) in the next 100 days.

Muffy - I'll definitely update people along my way - it will make me stick to the goal.

I need to hear more about this diet. What is it supposed to do for you health-wise? Sounds interesting. And LiLu, I love your idea of having AT LEAST one glass of wine every day for 100 days.
