I am on a roller coaster so I might as well enjoy the ride. We all have down days and there is no sense in beating ourselves up over them. There are also days that we are at the top of the roller coaster and we need to celebrate those days and NOT FORGET them. Then there are days when we are in-between. Those are "normal days" where things are happening as usual. They are also days for celebration. They are days when we get our work done.
I like the days when I can slow down and smell the roses. When I became a team leader, I felt overwhelmed with the process of learning what I needed to do. I am still in that process, but I am finding a routine on what I need to do on SP. I have started enjoying the process that we all go through on SP - I'm smelling the roses again! They are sweet and beautiful.
The last two days I have not kept track of what I ate. I knew it was not good. I just read a blog about lack of sleep causing bad days and then an e-mail on emotional eating. I didnít sleep good the night before cataract surgery nor the night after. I also didnít exercise. I did take a 3 hour nap after the surgery.
Today I was still tired and didnít want to get out of my chair. DH was going to the hardware store to get some things he needed. He was in the car and I decided I had better go with him and get out of the house. He waited for me. It was the best decision I made today. It gave me enough energy to ride my bike and then walk later this afternoon. I am going to start journaling to see just what is causing my bad days.
A new day, a new week, a new beginning. I need a new beginning. Last week didnít go very well as far as my eating went which was too far. I donít even want to get on the scales this morning. I donít think I gained, but even more important, I donít think I lost. I just need to bite the bullet and go weigh myself. Be back in a moment LOL. Well, I lost .2 of a pound. Loosing any is better than not loosing or gaining.
Today I am planning what I eat and entering it into my food tracker this morning. I am sure that by doing that I will stay within my food budget. We only have one day to live at a time, so that is what I plan on doing every day this week. By doing that, I will get back on track and loose the amount that I would like to loose.
I was reading a spark article and in it they said that "meeting your goals is 90% attitude." I am finding out how true that is. Last week I was tired and kept telling myself how tired I was. Everything was a struggle.
This week I said enough is enough. No more telling myself how tired I am. Exercise is invigorating and give you the energy and desire to do more things. It is working. Had a very good workout yesterday. Did the Wii Fit for 15 minutes and walked for 25. Also started back on my spring cleaning.
I also read recently that we should make a list of what brings us joy. The second thing on my list was an organized house. I am not an organized person, but if having an organized home is that important to me I will start working on that in earnest. I have already made plans for the next two projects. Looking forward to the end result.
