Day 2

Monday, July 09, 2012

Yesterday went pretty much the way I wanted it to. I did get my water in (yay!) and I even managed to do some exercising. My evening was thrown into chaos with the sudden need to dose both boys for lice (boo!).

Today my goal is to just track everything. I intend to stay in my calorie range today.

  Yay for getting in all your water :)

Day 1 (again)

Sunday, July 08, 2012

I've tried so many times that this seems so redundant. I really do what to live a healthier lifestyle but I can't seem to make the changes that I want to see in myself.

Unfortunately, my weight has gotten to the point where it is starting to affect my health. I have to lose weight now, or I won't be able to enjoy the future.

  I think the best advice I ever got was to just go by baby steps. Pick one small thing to do every day and do it. Once that small thing becomes easier for you, build on it.

Slow and steady :)

    Yes, some short term goals are a great idea.

    If at first you don't succeed. . . keep going, you can do it. How about some very short term goals for positive reinforcement?

Yesterday was absolutely slammed at work. I'm now farther behind than I'd hoped to be. If I were going in tomorrow I think I might be able to catch up but I'm almost disappointed that it's my holiday. I think about work too much.

Yesterday also saw complete failure of my new healthy ways. I'm not even going to bother to try logging my day yesterday. I'm going to put it completely behind me and start fresh today.

I'm getting closer. I didn't have that salad for lunch yesterday, but I did have whole wheat sushi. I didn't have wine with dinner, I searched the menu for something that wasn't too heavily loaded, but I did choose to have a small piece of pie for dessert.

It's Wednesday and I have to get on track. Tonight I have to do strength training in the evening and I have to stay away from all the sweets on display at work today.

As expected I failed just at the finish line yesterday. I was doing fine until it was time to go home again. I'd been dealing with a headache most of the day so I just wanted something salty to help make it go away. So I grabbed potato chips before I left as a snack. Then once I'd eaten those I let myself believe I'd blown it for the day so I might as well eat as much chinese take out as I wanted, rather than how much I actually needed. I ended the day 400 calories over, no exercise and short on water (I planned to have the last glass with dinner but had Coke instead). I made excuses for myself and let it go. That's my cheat for the week.

Today, we're going out to a pasta restaurant to celebrate my 6 year old's birthday. That means that I again have to be careful through the day (I'm just going to get a salad from the grocery store next door during lunch). I'll skip on the wine tonight and skip on desert. Just pasta for me.
