Invincible & vigilant

Friday, October 26, 2012

Now there ar 2 words that don't normally go together!

The problem with losing weight? You feel invincible! You've got this! No need to record that extra handful of nuts. Why not have a little chocolate? Grab that frozen dinner cause you're pressed for time. Almost no freggies? No worries, you've got this!

Well, that's sort of how last week went. And I was rewarded . . . and I'm not usually rewarded for that kind of behavior.

But I know if I let those unhealthy habits continue to creep in I won't continue to be rewarded. I fully expect an uptick at some pt if TOM arrives. No to mention since it was semi-warm I wore a pretty light dress for my WI.

I've got to be vigilant. A frozen dinner here & there is ok; definitely not every day. My BLTs were recorded, but I know I wasn't honest with myself about the amount -- that's got to stop. And freggies are even more important when you're under a lot of stress.

Here's to a more vigilant week - not because of the scale, because it's the healthy & right thing to do for my body.

Wanna be a vigilante with me?

    emoticon I think for most of us, being "Ever Vigilant" about Diet and Activity is not a Choice. It is something that we will have to do FOREVER. Much l;ike a Diabetic has to monitor their Blood Sugar, we will have to monitor our Food Intake.
emoticon But it is a Price that I am willing to pay,because they Benefits are AWESOME!!

    I agree with Donna that you need to give yourself credit for all your hard work. I also know with me, that when I have something with slightly more fat, over the course of the week, it all evens out and as long as I am vigilant and practice moderation throughout the rest week, I am generally successful in reaching a goal.

    Yes! It is very seductive to start to think that a good weigh in is a sign that we have it down pat but I don't know how many times I have been reminded that this life...this not a straight line and I can't ever forget it and go with the flow.

Now, that said, we still need to recognize our hard work and in your case I believe you really deserve some applause as well cause I know you have been putting in the work. I think back to when I first started reading your blogs and though at that time, you were eating well most of the time I know you weren't doing the fitness that you are now....and it shows! So, be vigilent...we all need to...but give yourself credit for a job well done too!
