#1 - I'm tired of waiting.

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

Since I am going out of town this weekend, I figured I'd be more successful starting my diet and exercise Monday. It is logical because I have no idea what we will be eating on the trip, and if I was on the diet at that time, I would feel guilty for splurging. However, I can't help but to feel mad at myself for the Sonic chili cheese fries and Pepsi that I had for lunch. When I logged it in my food tracker, it was the worst thing I've ever eaten, but I still don't feel good about it. I am so excited about starting this "new me" phase in my life that I wish I could just forego the trip, so that I could begin my diet and exercise plan today. I'm just tired of waiting. I'm ready to start the journey into getting fit, feeling better, and getting skinnier. So until Monday, I will continue to track my food even if it makes me not happy because I need to see the truth. It will only add to the motivation.

    It's great that you're tracking your food, even if it makes you unhappy. That is how I started out over a week ago. I was just going to track what I ate. Then I started looking at the calories of each item. Then, I just wanted to eat healthy food and the exercise followed shortly behind.

I think you're in a great mindset to start your weight loss/get healthy journey. Since you're not going to actually start the journey until Monday, maybe you could see the food you're eating now and look for healthier alternatives. Just a little research before actually starting. It will give you a leg up on the eating because you'll know what you can eat and what calories are in certain foods.

Try not to beat yourself up for the next couple of days. Just keep yourself motivated to start fully on Monday. :)

    I think you've got a solid plan, there! It's always best to just go ahead and write it down, even if it is an eye-opener. It will set you up well for keeping track of everything you eat from this day forward. :o)

  even if you are logging foods that you aren't happy about, it makes you so much more aware. There WILL come a time when it will not occur to you to order those types of things because your goal will mean more then the instant gratification of eating
