Had a slump after I went out of town. It seems after I go out of town and come back I have trouble staying on track. I'll have to take extra measures. It is funny how you can have the best intentions but when it comes to the point of this or that your plans can quickly unravel. I will have to be on guard for that. Today I told myself I wouldn't let myself go another day heading down this slump. I thought, "What can I do to turn things around -right now-.
The first thing I did was track my food.
The second thing I did was make a motivational poster.
Each little sticker, picture or design I put on there represents one pound I've lost. I've lost about 110 pounds so I had fun trying to think of where to place all those stickers and doodles. I'm looking forward to placing many more stickers!
The second thing I did was get some rest. After work I get tired. I needed to refresh myself for a bit. Then I drank my water, had a little protein and went to work out.
I am already feeling much better, my mood is improving and I feel like I can do this again.
I need to see what I can do to stop going on and off again so frequently. Seems like I am doing okay for two weeks or so then I derail. I need to plan better I think. Plan my meals instead of thinking every day, "What should I have for dinner tonight?"
