Just thought I would challenge you all to keep focused and do NOT lose heart as we endeavor to make positive changes to our lives.
If we fail to keep that focus 100%, it's all good...just don't let it spiral out of control.
Yesterday I wanted to share a yummy cookie with the hubby as we had a day together and well, it was a tasty cookie WORTH sharing with someone I love very much.
Thing is, I WANT to retrain the way I think when it comes to what makes me "happy" and how I express that happiness with those I love.
Having half a cookie was not the end of the world, but could I have chosen some other way to show my happiness?
Food has never really been an issue with my hubby so I KNOW I could have given him a public HUG...sent him a text even though he was right there with me, or just said outloud: HEY YOU! This is a great day and I am glad we got to spend time together.
I enjoyed the cookie and it did spark this thought in my mind so I guess it was a good thing in many aspects.
Oh, and BTW, this was a HUGE cookie topping at 470 calories and 15 or so grams of fat. Even at HALF, that is one unhealthy, albeit delicious treat!
So...any thoughts on HOW to change the unhealthy habits/patterns we have?

I was very pleased with a 1.6 pound loss at my weigh in today. This, of course, is the weight they have for me at the YMCA where the challenge is taking place.
My goal is to lose 1-2 pounds per week. This will get me down at least 52 pounds by this time next year. As much as I WANT to lose more, I am constantly reminding myself that slow and steady wins the race and losing 50 pounds in 6 months is just not logical or healthy for me.
So...have you any goals for this year? If so WHAT are YOU doing to take control over your life and achieve those goals?

Not that there is anything so amazing about Tuesday...other than, when you think about it, it is the most ignored day of the week!
It's not Monday...the dreaded Monday.
It's not Wednesday...GUESS what day it is!!!??? HUMP DAY!!!
Thursday is practically the weekend and we ALL love Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
The weather was miserable today. Rain, gray, warm for January.
I was scheduled for an all day volunteer stint with a Red Cross blood drive and really, I did NOT want to go to the gym beforehand.
I did and I was so glad when I was done.
8 days straight I have moved my body and I am starting to feel the positive results.
I get to weigh in on Thursday and I HATE that aspect of the little contest I entered. The number should mean nothing. I am eating healthy, moving regularly, and drinking water. So what if the number stays the same!!! I need to do this regardless.
But the number does effect me at times. I am hoping I see a loss but MUST know that I am doing what I can and nothing more.
We shall see.
So, how do you deal with facing the scale?? Love it?? Hate it??? Don't do it at all???
