I know my mission. To be positive. January-April were very positive months for me. I stayed focused. May got slippery. June has been a mess thus far. I apparently have lost my focus. I need to regain it immediately!
My water intake has been lacking. I know that this reeks havoc on my body and my focus should be to stay hydrated. I'm slowly going back to my old Starbucks ways. Not only is this horrible for my body but it's really not good on our budget either. Kicking that habit once again. Only making coffee at home or at the office. Sorry SB- you're not good for my butt.
I was a pescatarian for 7 years (no meat aside from fish). Now that I've introduced meat back into my diet again, I'm wanting to try all the things that I've not had in the past 7 years. I need to be very careful about my choices and how I order the things I want to try. I also need to be sure to count it into my calories to ensure it doesn't put me over for the day. Track before I eat. This is key. I know darn well that it doesn't matter how much I exercise. If I am eating like crap it won't matter.
I need to be more active. I'm allowing myself "rest" days. These should be "no gym" days not "zero activity" days. On my "rest" days- I should still be walking. Sitting around is not doing anything for my stamina, heart, blood pressure, fat, etc. 10K steps per day is not impossible. It simply requires that I get up and walk. No excuses. I've been so motivated in the past that I've walked back and forth in our apartment just to get all my steps in. Need to bring back that focus!
It's everything! I'm allowing outside influence to much power on me. Just because husband wants a donut doesn't mean that I should have one too. Just because someone in the office is drinking a big giant soda, doesn't mean that I should have one too. I'm an individual. I'm not a sheep. I shouldn't follow the herd. I make my own choices and they need to be the right ones. I need to get my focus back on the positives each day and choose a better attitude. It's everything!
So all these words... really are just words... ACTION speaks louder than words. I can reflect all I'd like about getting my focus back. I can talk until the cows come home... the only way I'm going to stop being the cow is by actually mooooooving my butt!
