Setting the bar high
Monday, November 19, 2012
The scale was not kind to me today. There are a slew of reasons that might be the case, not the least of which being I ran 8 miles yesterday & I'm fully aware of each & every reason. That doesn't change the fact that today's number did not make me happy.
Despite the fact that there will be a LOT of baking & yes, still some stress over Simba & a lot of running around, too, I'm going to set my bar high: I'd like to lose 2 lbs by my next WI. That's 1 1/2 weeks away. I know that theoretically it's totally doable; I also know that's still a difficult number for me to achieve.
I figure that by setting the bar high, even if I fail I still win.
So tbe dark chocolate edamame I've been nibbling on? That went downstairs. I can have it, but I need to measure it & record it.
Already started today with a 10 min abs routine. Hope to add 10 minutes of legs & arms by the end of the day. The dogs still need their walk; it was too cold before my meeting this morning.
And I have to be particularly mindful of carb consumption & portion sizes in general since I'm tapering.
Just because you had a setback, just because it's a holiday week in tbe US -- no excuses. Now more than ever it's time to stick to our healthy habits!
You with me? What habits are you sticking with?
