I feel like I am staying on track, but it's only 3 days into the new year. Doubt is creeping into my mind about whether I can keep this up for the entire year and beyond. I am replacing those doubts with a positive attitude that I will certainly succeed. After all, I am in control of what I consume and how much I exercise on any given day. So, here are tomorrow's goals.
Another love note for DH. I am doing a "How do I love thee, let me count the ways" theme. Each day I use the computer to create a page with a relevant image, the date, and a way that I love him. I slip it into his reference binder for work. I will take those pages and compile them into a binder of "365 ways that I love Gary."
Daily devotional and reflection time...I am really drawing strength from this.
60 minutes on the Gazelle and 5 minutes on the exercise bike.
Due to migraine did three 10 minute sessios which is a lot bbetter than nothing.
Get kitty litter.
Track my food.
Read Bible and pray with DH.
For added incentive to meet my goals I challenged my girlfriend to a weight loss competition. First one of us to lose 7 pounds gets an Amazon gift card from the other...plus a sexier body!
I have to admit, doing all this is time-consuming work, and it's not easy. Hopefully all my efforts will become ingrained habits soon...second nature to breathing.
The above WAS my plan, but the best laid plans of mice and men...I didn't get enough sleep last night due to anxiety about meeting my goals. After I was up a few hours I developed a migraine, so I cancelled my plans for the day. I still give myself a gold star, because I achieved some things despite how much pain I am in.
