Day 13: Remeber the Positive

Saturday, August 06, 2011

I spend a lot of time thinking about my failures. Way more than I think about my successes. It's easier to point out what I'm doing wrong than to focus on what I'm doing right. Maybe I'll make that a focus for next week as well. Just try to point out the positives.

    I like this because it's so true. Instead of getting all depressed because my abs don't look as flat as I want them to, I'm going to think "Well, they're not rolling globs of jello anymore either!!"

Thanks for that!! I needed it!!

Day 12

Friday, August 05, 2011

And I'm already looking forward to what I need to work on next week. I have to be a better tracker in the evening. This week has been a bit of a challenge because we haven't been home most nights. I have the app on my phone but I wasn't using it to track while we were out. I've missed the evening exercises that I was hoping to add this week too. It's Friday so my week isn't totally over, but I won't be surprised if I don't see much change in the scale on Sunday.

    Keep up the little improvements! And give yourself credit for what you DID do this week! Next week you can carry forward what you learned from this one! emoticon

Day 11

Thursday, August 04, 2011

Well, I didn't. I said I was going for the strength training last night and I couldn't muster up the energy to actually do it. I'm not surprised, it's why my goal was 2-3 times a week for strength training. Fitting in that third day is hard when I have the earlier shift at work. I did it last week but it isn't going to happen this week. Today I'll do my cardio and Friday I'll do weight again. Not working this Saturday so I'll get the cardio I missed last week. If this keeps up I'll only be losing one planned exercise day a week which is better than having no exercise days a week.


Day 10

Wednesday, August 03, 2011

It's only Wednesday and I feel like I have to turn this week around. I haven't been happy with my choices for the past two days. I'm fine during the day but have made some poor choices in the evening - and that's exactly what I was going to work on this week.

Tonight, I WILL do my strength training that I skipped yesterday.

  Way to keep with it! It's my 8 day and I didn't keep with my diet over the weekend, so I tried really hard to make sure I exercised every day.

Day 9: Motivation

Tuesday, August 02, 2011

The SparkDiet tip that was in my inbox this morning was about motivation and how to keep it. I think I still have the motivation to do this. I'm still in the Fast Break but I'm not making the evening changes I've been trying to for the last week. I'm worried that it's motivation. My problem is that my motivation seems so intangible. I want to be healthier, but I don't feel unhealthy. I want to be there for my kids, but I'm not not there now. I want to live a more active lifestyle, but I can't seem to find the time to do what I want to do for fun now.

So right now I have the drive to eat right and exercise, but will I be able to keep it? What do I use when the drive starts to peter out, like it always does in a few weeks? How do I find the will to keep going when I stop seeing results? I know all these things are coming. I try to take things day to day. So far, so good.
