I am going to be kind to myself...

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

Tis the Season... and I should start off by being kind and forgiving to myself.

To do this I have decided to stay on Stage 1 until after the holidays, so I don't give it all up. I will track my food (all of it) and drink (all of it) and set goals weekly and keep thinking positively about starting to move. As long as I am AWARE of everything I know I will do OK through this time of heavenly food and beverage!

I ordered a pedometer so I can start by counting steps- and challenge myself by increasing the number of steps each day- no matter how small the goal is, it will be better then what I am doing now.

I will work very hard on drinking ALL of my beverage. I account for wine- 2 glasses max a day (I LOVE MY WINE!) and I will not allow myself a glass until all 8 glasses of water are gone for the day... if I can't do it- then no wine -- it is kind of a win-win situation for me. But my goal is to drink that water-- it is so great for our skin (besides aiding in weightloss).

I want to remain happy and positive, and if I keep it at this level during the holidays I will remain happy and positive. Then in January I can reevaluate what I want to do.

I am getting my CPAP today- and I am hoping the when I do get some sleep that my energy level will rise along with my motivation. I am very excited about getting sleep!! Hope I can sleep with the machine, I will remain positive!! My mom took forever to get use to it, my sister liked it right away. So I hope I do too.

So lets hear for being kind to ourselves first, then to others... can't be that kind of a person if you are resenting and hard on yourself all the time- and lets hear it for manageable goals that work with self expectaions. I know I will cheer it on with a glass of Pinor Noir tonight!! (as I am on glass 4 of my water and it is ony 11am!) emoticon

    "If you drink a wine that is lower percentage of alcohol, you'll get fewer calories. Go through your wine shop and check out the percent alcohol on the wine bottles. If you find a heavy red zin, it might be up in alcohol (and calories). If you find a light pinot grigio, it might be down in alcohol. That can be half the calories! " Prosecco is a lower alcohol wine and taste great!!!!!
