Today I didn't do as well with my food choices/calories. I did great yesterday.
I've got to forge a plan.
I did track ALL my calories.
I didn't plan out/track all my meals this morning, which meant when I came home for lunch, I ate too much. Not all healthy either.
I did walk Poppet 2x's.
I did exercise this evening with dh.
All in all, today wasn't a total wash.
I'm trying to figure out what I need to do. One thing that I need to do, is do my meal tracking before I start the day. Get everything planned out. This starts tomorrow morning.

I didn't weigh myself for 2 weeks. In those 2 weeks I started out positive, watching what I ate, and began simple exercising. Well...... that didn't last long. If I had weighed myself after the 1st week, I may have thwarted the mindless eating that happened the 2nd week.
Okay, I realize this. I weighed in Sunday, and was about the same as I was 2 weeks ago. I know if I had weighed a week ago the numbers might have been better. Why do I sabotage myself like this? I wonder, should I concentrate more on the healthy eating at first? Add exercise after a week or 2 to give myself a chance to get the eating under control 1st? I don't know..... Maybe not. Exercise helps in more ways that just expending calories. It is also a stress reliever. I think I just answered my own question.

I'm still being positive, but I have to admit that today challenged me. Monday's are my day off. Today I took Poppet (my dog) and Teazer (my cat) to the vet. First time taking them together. That wasn't bad at all. However, the "girls" both have issues. Poppet has arthritis, and her gums are receding. She has other, ongoing issues too. Teazer's gums have not improved after being on antibiotics, so we are going to try a medication that I will rub on her gums and teeth.
Ok, that was first. I had a good breakfast before going to the vet. Came home, had a nice lunch. A nice fruit snack later. Then.... I WANTED SOMETHING TO MUNCH ON!!! SOMETHING EITHER SALTY OR CHOCOLATEY. I didn't give in. Oh boy, I sure could have, but I didn't. I didn't want to undo what I've been working so hard at. It's hard changing old habits. I could've had carrots or something else healthy, but I know that if I eat ANYTHING when I'm in that frame of mind I will overeat. And I don't mean good healthy food, either.
So, instead of eating mindlessly I took a short nap. I felt so much better. It's amazing what a short nap can do. Then I got up and did some cleaning. I feel good, and I am proud that I didn't give in.

I've decided to be more positive. the past 3 days I've had a positive attitude, and you know what? it works! I've made better food choices, and have started an exercise routine in the mornings before work. It's only 10 minutes of easy stretches and a little yoga. then 5 minutes of meditation. what a difference in me. i'm able to breathe better, too. I didn't realize how shallow my breathing has been. No wonder I'm so tired all the time. Of course, I do still walk Poppet a couple times a day. i've been more focused, and staying within my caloric range.
Positivity. It's a good thing. :)
