- I will exercise for a minimum of 30 minutes, 4-5 days a week. Done. And yesterday I had a great workout wherein I felt more hopeful about this journey than I have in a very long time. I was all motivated all by myself. 😀
- I will track my food at least 6 days a week. Um… no. I think I tracked 100% of only 4 days. Last weekend was our weekend at the State Fair and the football game (which we won — Woo Hoo!!) and I was already in negative points for the week. So, I didn’t track all weekend and can’t remember if I tracked Monday or not. My weigh-in is Monday morning, so since I was in the negative by Saturday morning I decided not to take the time to track every bite I ate at the fair. Had I actually left some points for the weekend I would’ve just to see where I ended up, but by that morning I didn’t care to worry about it anymore.
- I will drink at least 32 ounces of pure water a day. Only part of the time. I drink a lot of liquid, but earlier in the week I found myself having more diet soda than actual water. Seeing as how it was TOM I wasn’t too worried about it, and I’ve been right back on track as the week came to a close.
- I will enjoy the holidays, but not forget my new ending in life includes making the best choice for ME — whether that’s having something in moderation or saying no. Done. I was up 2 lbs at my weigh-in Monday morning. I know I blew it big time the week before and when I realized my cycle was starting it explained all the extra crazy cravings and subsequent eating. However, even though I didn’t save extra points up for the State Fair, like I’d hoped to, I went ahead and enjoyed myself.
I shared everything I had and did not eat to stuffed. I was pleasantly satisfied when we made our way home that evening and enjoyed myself immensely. This is the “best choice for me” that I needed to make and not feel badly about. And I’m pleased with it.
