TODAY IS A NEW DAY**
BE THANKFUL, HAPPY IS HEALTHY
SEE THE POSITIVE SIDE OF EVERY SITUATION
DRINK LOTS OF WATER
FOOD IS USED TO FUEL MY BODY
EXERCISE, LAUGH AND PLAY
**BE KIND AND SHARE POSITIVITY**
I need to take this one day at a time. I'm becoming too focused on reaching one particular goal, that I'm allowing one set back to turn into two, then quickly three, then I'm completely off coarse. Where is my beginners manual? I seem to have forgotten the essentials, the basics, the necessities to this journey.
Action #1: Log calories
I need to track everything I put into my mouth BEFORE I EAT IT. Additionally, my food choices should be fuel focused, not craving focused. The foods I choose should help energize my day, while staying within my calorie ranges.
Action #2: Drink water
I love coffee. While I've tried to kick it several times, I understand and know that it's something I will always drink. It shouldn't replace water. I need to still drink all of my water and if need be, set reminders for myself to chug. It's essential to my health and wellness.
Action #3: Exercise
The weather is changing. After a long day of work, I'd rather go home and hang out with my family then go to the gym. Getting my burn will be the only way to get my heart healthy and my body toned as I lose weight. No excuses. This must be done. Goal is 10,000 steps per day. Very do-able.
The scale can be forgotten for now. It's turning into a de-motivator for me. Avoiding it for now and just focusing on the day to day. Welcome back to basics. I can do it.
