I have been following my new eating plan for the last 15 days and in keeping w/ my goal, I will get a massage after completing 30 days of tracking and not snacking between my meals. So yesterday I received a temptation challenge of free soda, popcorn and cotton candy. I love the popcorn and decided I was going to have some because that really wouldn’t hurt my calories for the day. Then I started thinking of my massage and realized that it would undo the last 15 days and I would have to start over at day 1. Changed my mind at that moment and left without anything.
My weight has been pretty stable now, decreasing slowly. I haven’t been doing much for exercise lately as I wanted to concentrate on one thing at a time. Now I think it is time to start my exercise plan. I really liked doing my exercises in the am, however I work much earlier now so not sure how that will work. I think I will try doing 20 minutes on the treadmill on the mornings I work and go from there.

I have heard this saying so often over the last few years.
Whenever I have set my goals in the past they have always been: When I lose 5 lbs I get this…. Sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn’t.
And then this brick hit me. I always set my goals with the end game in mind, however this time is different. I have decided to reward my day to day journey, knowing full well that if I do this, I will obtain my end result and that is a reward in and of itself. So after 14 days of daily tracking I am losing weight and I am lowering my sugars! When I have obtained 30 days of daily tracking I get a long overdue massage!
I can’t really control how much weight I lose and when, but I can control my day to day actions like tracking my food intake on Sparkpeople.
