Plodding already

Thursday, February 14, 2013

Tuesday was my only within-calorie day out of four days tracked so far. I intend today to be another! But I'm already finding it reaaally easy to slip back into my bad habits - the glass of wine before bed, the food at the coffee shop. Staying in bed rather than exercising (um, also because of the glass of wine before bed factor).

You know what, as long as I keep tracking, it's okay. I mean, I still need to eat less, make tougher choices, etc, but as long as I'm tracking, that's me saying I haven't given up and I care about myself. That I am a person who is healthy.

(I do wish I could be that person WITHOUT the calorie tracking, but so far, I need the help!)

I had measurements day again today. I do that twice a week and weigh myself daily - no, not because I expect to see results daily (or even twice a week!) but because a) I find it keeps me on track, and b) I get more of an idea of my true weight/measurements this way.

Anyway, my weight was actually down today - and I don't feel like I deserve it! Weird.

I don't like feeling a little discouraged this early, but I can plod through.

    Today is just one day. You can do it for one day.

One day at a time...

I had a bad day yesterday and was up 2.6 pounds this morning. I know it's probably sodium, but still...It takes me weeks to lose 2.6 pounds but a few hours to gain it back? That's just not fair.

    Even after being a member for over 2 years I still track because it is just so easy to put something extra on your plate and not even realise it. It does get easier.
