Talking myself into it
Wednesday, January 09, 2013
That is what I am doing right now. Talking myself into weight loss, determination, mobility, and exercise. One little baby step at a time.
While waiting for my dh to get to bed last night (actually, after midnight, so technically today), I did about 5 minutes of my back stretching exercises. I told myself that 5 minutes is better than no minutes, and I could add to it in the morning, which I did. I added another 3 minutes.
One minute at a time, I can convince myself that this will work.
Last night, when I felt hunger hit me, I satisfied it with one thin slice of low sodium american cheese, and some water. Then I slept soundly for the night.
One tiny bite at a time.
This morning, my hubby made waffles. Ok, not the most healthy, but I use minimal syrup, and when I got down to the last couple bites, looking at that double stack of 2 inch squares I quit. I said "I AM full, why stuff it in my mouth." Instead I wrapped it in my paper napkin and threw it out.
Look out Daylight! I am out to get you!
