I did 15 minutes of fitness yesterday (Sept. 6)
Today's highlight was actually a "lowlight" – as I was doing sprints yesterday and a bee stung me on the hand! I'm not sure if the bee was trying to motivate me to go faster or what, but I can do without that type of motivation!
Here's a great post from today!
Title: Breakthrough Mindset
Message: It was really cold and rainy the other day when hubby and I went grocery shopping, and since our Kroger has a Starbucks in it, we decided before we left the house that we were going to get some coffee to sip while we shopped (score 1 pt for making conscious decisions!). We got on the website and each picked out a drink from their "under 200 calorie" so we''d know what to order when we got there (score 1 pt for planning ahead!).
When we got there we ordered our awesome low fat drinks and I take a sip of mine...delicious... but I forgot to ask for no whip!!! I lamented this to my husband and got ready to take another sip because, well, I wanted it. I ordered it. I paid for it.
And then it hit me. I don''t have to eat anything I don''t want to. I didn''t WANT the whipped cream, I wasn''t going to eat it! I got a spoon from the barista and proceeded to scoop my whipped cream right into the trash before enjoying my drink. (score 1 pt for making a good decision in a pinch!).
May not seem like much, but I was pretty happy about it. Just those three choices saved me about 400 calories!
How was your day? Did you get at least 10 minutes of fitness? What's your highlight?
