I mentioned in my last Blog that I was headed north, with the whole Fam-dam-ly, for Canadian Thanksgiving. It was wonderful :) My dinner was the best it has ever been - I had a plan... everyone's favourite treats... even good choice for me so that I wouldn't feel deprived. I allowed myself a small taste of this, a treat of that, and even a few cocktails - but (and I don't know why, but I'm thrilled any ways), I stayed with the PLAN, focused and committed to myself. I didn't feel left out, or hungry, or "tested". Pretty cool stuff!
I had a mental work week, once we got home Monday night. I have even worked 3 days "IN" the last 2 (about 30 hrs). This meant no time to check in on the computer this week. I was bagged... I am happy to say tho, that despite of the stress, the long hours, sleeping lousy, I managed to do well and eat healthy!! Yay!
The scales even showed a 1.3 lb loss despite the Holiday. Things are clicking!!
I was secretly worried while I was away, that when I got back and weighed, that I might have left ONE-derland, after only just arriving back to the scene.. I SOOOO did not want to gain and go back...never!!!
So, actually losing this week, reinforced the fact that I have a choice. The POWER. Ya, ME, I have it, if I actually COMMIT to it. I even got my 8 glasses in this week (this is a tuff one for me) Gotta love the MIO ...
This ONE-derland is the land of improved energy. The land of a more positive attitude... it feels pretty darn good here. There's pride here, a sense of accomplishment!
ONE-derland feels warm and inviting - kinda shines a ray of sunshine on everything! I'm thinking, this is worth the effort to stick around...Better yet I'M worth the effort. Imagine that!!
Keep on Keeping ON!! You're my inspiration!!
