A Scenic Outlook...
Friday, July 16, 2010
Well, today is my first day working out since Monday. Tuesday I woke up feeling HORRIBLE, and mid-day, left to go to my brother's house to babysit until Thursday, while my sister-in-law was in the hospital.
Ohhhh the junk food that was in those cabinets.... cookies, crackers and cakes, oh my! I admit, I wasn't on my best behavior. Those peanut-butter M&M's were just too sinful to resist! And it was only ONE chocolate chip cookie! (although, it wasn't hard to resist more, since it turns out I didn't really like them anyway)
I also didn't walk a bit. Not even down the block and back! :-o
I was worried that this morning I wouldn't want to get up and go for my normal walk, that I wouldn't be able go get back into my newly created routine. So scared I'd blown it, and would just plop back into my old routine of eating, sleeping, and gaining more weight.
BUT I DIDN'T! I got up! I got out! And not only did I do my normal walk, but also picked right back up on my interval jogging during my walk!!! I was SO proud of myself afterward!!! I've also climbed right back up on that 'eating better' bandwagon now that I'm back home.
I'd been so afraid of the first time I 'stumbled' because I just knew I wouldn't just shrug it off and keep going. I thought for sure my first mistake would be the end of my 'new' me... but it WASN'T!!! I feel so much better about myself, and also about reaching my end goals! This was truly my first real test, and I think I passed with flying colors, regardless of the Pringles I ate yesterday ;-)
