Heat, Hot Emotions, & it's Time to Engage My Deep Self!
Friday, August 21, 2009
The heat has been relentless here in Austin TX and I can't get out in this heat (60+ days over 100 now & counting) without some heat distress (regardless of the early hour) and the treadmill isn't as fun. I loved my 1-2 hour walks outside, but now, only do 30 minutes on the indoors treadmill most days. The heat is my main excuse... it feels like walking thru think mud not to mention making me feel bad physically and emotionally. It pisses me off really. So I focus on what I eat. I've tracked, counted calories and found it a bit daunting to keep up with. Am going to 2 meals a day; breakfast and a late lunch. So far I've lost 2#'s this week. I am a bit hungry at night but nothing I can't manage. Better I stay focused on my creative projects and wake up hungry in the morning.
I just realized I am still working on the goals I set almost a year ago. I've accomplished a few but haven't keep the entire oversight in my daily Mind. So I guess that's part of the answer too. I need to create daily reminders and shorter steps to goals I've set.
