Autumn is almost here! HUZZAH!

Sunday, September 16, 2012

Well, yeah....It's been an interesting few weeks. I vacillate between going great guns and doing pretty much everything right, then it trickles away to practically nothing. I ate poorly yesterday and I have to admit it was by choice. I'd been fighting a certain craving for days and finally decided to follow through, rather than let it build and become an obsession. So I followed the 1 step back and 2 steps forward idea. I decided not to feel guilty over my decision. I enjoyed it, it tasted good and I felt content.

Today I ate on the lower side of my calorie range, had 6 servings of veggies, drank all my water and exercised for 30 minutes. I made the commitment to keep moving forward. I am so determined to see more results. My clothes are getting a wee bit looser. I know I'm doing something right more times than not and that is enough to keep me going.

I have my new wardrobe planned and I m looking forward especially to getting my arms toned up. Yes I know, kinda odd...but I wanna go sleeveless! *LOL* In any event, I'm really and truly okay and it feels really good to say it and mean it. There was a time, not too horribly long ago, if I had a day like yesterday, i would have thrown in the towel and given up. So, yeah...I'm feeling pretty good.

Here is to a Sparking good week!

    This is one of the best blogs I've read in such a long time! You had a craving, and rather than giving in and then beating yourself up about it, you gave in and totally owned it. AND you proactively took steps today to make yourself feel good and healthy the next day. No self pity, or "well, I've ruined it, guess I'll go eat a bag of pork rinds". That is such a sensible way to handle cravings. MAD kudos to you and a gigantic thumbs up.

    i know how it feels to go back and forth sometimes, good job sticking to it. I like your goal of going sleeveless!
