So today was a long exhausting day for me. I only have 5 mins to write this blog LITERALLY. I am on a time limit. I gave myself 10 mins to journal and 5 mins to blog.
I have been tired since I got off work. But I decided that somethings MUST be done so I used my time to clean a little, catch up on work that needed to be done this week and of course get at LEAST 7 hours of sleep.
So now I can quickly tell you the reasons why I'M PROUD of myself today.
* though I am busy, I have NEVER given up on my goal to lose weight and BE HEALTHY.
* I may not be able to squeeze in much but I try to do something each day. like today I did 20 squats before jumping into bed, a 30 second plank hold for my abs and 5 mins on my spin bike. in the GRAND scheme of things, that was nothing... but to me that was a statement of DEDICATION even when it has to be a little. and I'm sick... so I need to learn to take it easy on myself. I am planning some AM exercise though.
*I chose a healthy lunch at the cafeteria. - small piece of chicken marsala, cabbage, and carrots
*I passed on coldstone icecream even though I was right outside the store and wanted it. And I chose not to eat in intentionally! MY goals are MORE important
* I have been recording my food and exercise for 2 days. 3 more days til I get my first mini gift!
* I set several mini goals to get the ball rolling on this lasting weight loss and I'm actually completing each step.
** I made time to journal and blog despite an already jam packed day, being sick, and being exhausted.
Time is up.
