Disappointment and success in one day

Tuesday, May 08, 2012

I keep starting over and over and over.......... Feeling much different this week and it's a good feeling. Sort of like that feeling I had last year when I was doing so well. Had a great day yesterday and stayed right on track with water/exercise/tracking and eating healthy. Got up this morning with a great attitude and the first thing I see is the rejection email for the job I applied for. It's been so many weeks so I pretty much knew they weren't going to hire me but it was still depressing to see it in black and white. That was at 6:30 this morning. Here it is 9:15 at night and I'm happy to say that despite that disappointing email - I did not cave.......instead I stayed true to my plan and my WW points. Got in exercise and drank lots of water.

I will not give up on the hunt for a better and less stressful job NOR will I give up on a better more healthy body!

Yay to Day 2 and on to Day 3!

    WE ALL HAVE A PLAN THATS ALREADY SET OUT FOR EACH ONE OF US,,ITS NOT FOR US TO KNOW WHAT IT IS, AND SOMETIMES IT FEELS LIKE IT MAY BE THE RIGHT PLAN BUT I BELIEVE THERES A REASON BEHIND EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS IN OUR LIVES, SO I SAY TRUST IT AND ONE DAY YOU WILL GET WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE YOU HAPPY AND AS FAR AS EATING THE WRONG THINGS,,ISN'T FUNNY WE NEVER FEEL GOOD AFTER WE EAT WHAT WE THOUGHT WAS GOING TO BE SO GOOD? MAYBE SOMEONE OR SOMETHING IS TRYING TO HELP US BUT WE KEEP IGNORING ALL THE SIGNS..HMMM?? emoticon

    Good for you!! I KNOW firsthand how hard it is to stay on track and keep your eyes on the main goal, so you get KUDOS for working through it. It will get easier the more you do so. Keep up the good work!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Day 2 - Moving forward

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

Ok, Day 1 is behind me and I'm looking forward to another 'good' day.

I decided to get back to the basic's of Water / Tracking / Exercise. Yesterday I drank the 8 glasses of water and stayed within my WW points and ate healthy. Is their room for improvement? Oh yeah....... I did not get any exercise in due to a very long work day. That's ok, I've long stopped beating myself up over not doing something. Instead, I just need to rework my plan for the week in order to meet the exercise goal I set for myself.

Today's goals:

Water - 8 glasses
Tracking - Stay within my WW points
Exercise - packing and moving boxes (friend is moving). If I get to her house early I will take a walk around her neighborhood.

One day at a time here..........

Turning a bad day upside down and making it a Great Day!

Monday, February 14, 2011

Well let's see, once again I made it thru the weekend with no weight gain which always makes me feel more confident. Started work at 7:56 am and at 7:57 the issues started pouring in. Three emergencies in less then 20 minues. NOT how a person wants to start out a Monday. My first instinct was to reach for something unhealthy but instead - I turned to a 'planned' serving of cantaloupe and strawberries. Made it thru the first hurdle of the day. As it progressed, more issues occurred and were handled and I never turned to food. In short, it was a day from hell......BUT, thru it all, I stuck tight to my plan AND even managed to get a 2nd round of exercise in at lunchtime to keep the stress at bay. I am feeling great about being back on track but there are still so many 'shaky' moments when I get lazy or want something unhealthy because I think it will make me feel better. I've learned that I just need to have it all planned out and work it meal by meal during the course of the day. Add in exercise and water and I feel so much more in control and before I know it, I've turned a 'bad/lousy' day into a GREAT day. WOO HOOOO.

Hopefully tomorrow I can make it a fabulous day!
