Monday was great!

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

Yesterday was just like the title great! I did not post yesterday because I knew I needed sleep. Sleep that's part of being healthy this night owl has a hard time doing. Guess what, I woke up in a great mood and feel very motivated this morning. Yesterday, I chose good food with a small splurge that was reasonable and ate them mindfully. I was awesome turning down snacks offered to but because I wasn't hungry. This was partly due to realizing I wasn't and making choices to do other things that needed to be done when I got bored. I chose to speak up and invitied a friend to go walking with me and in turn gained a walking partner for Mondays. We both enjoyed quality conversions and the exercise so much we added staircases too along the way. It was an indoor and outdoor walk. I got my water in of course, I'm so glad that its been a habit I no longer have to think about but I still credit myself doing daily. It saves me so many calories daily and its something I really had to work at. I got my vitamins in even thought they were late. Isn't the saying better late than never? emoticon I did not make my 10,000 steps but I came closer just by speaking up. Speaking up is the biggest victory I had yesterday followed close by going to bed earlier.

I don't know when I will make it to my goal. I do know its each and every non-scale victory like this passed Monday, that will get me there. So if anyone is struggling today please remember its first a process of stringing along positive baby steps to build up to that lose of an inch, breaking or adding a habit or pound on the scale. It's not the scale that gives you a lose its caring about yourself. Take every choice you make with you in mind.
