Week 3

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

I got on the scale this morning and was rewarded with a SMALLER number. :) It may be only 3lbs so far, but it's something to be proud of.

I've become more aware of the obstacles I need to overcome. One of them would be my boyfriend. Just because he thinks it's a good idea to eat doesn't mean that I have too. When I'm bored, food is not a good way to pass the time... doing something productive is. I started a new art project. Something i haven't done in a long time.

I haven't been as dedicated to the exercising as I would have liked. The whole idea of push-ups and crunches are repelling me. I did make myself do it twice, but I prefer getting a sweat up through cleaning or in an activity that produces an immediate result. So that turned into my work out of choice. Which with a couple of animals and boys to clean up after it's no small task. Especially when one of them in a mechanic and you are required to scrub your white bathroom down on a regular basis.

I was able to keep drinking at least 3 glasses of water a day and I did cook more. Which both William and his grandfather were amazed at. The best part was... it didn't taste too bad. Perhaps my grandmother is finally rubbing off on me. :D

I am content with trying another week where I stick to both weeks goals and see how I do with keeping up the routine. I hope everyone is doing well on their goals as well and thank you to everyone that has been messaging me and encouraging me these last couple weeks. You've been a wonderful inspiration to keep going.

    Yippeee!!!! Happy Dance !!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

You are VERY wise to keep doing the same routine that has been working for you. It needs to become a habit. So routine that you don't have to think about it. Then move on to another hurdle. Get comfortable with that and move on to the next. Before you know it, 6 months have gone by and then a year, etc. We humans resist change. So we have to figure out how to break the barriers that are holding us back. My choice is the sledge hammer as you know! But I have learned with this diet thing, that chipping away a little bit at a time works best!

Maybe make a list of all the bad health habits you have and across from each one you make a list of what you want to replace it with. Rank them and then start workin it!

Love having you on here with me! xoxoxo MeMa emoticon emoticon
