“I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.”
― Thomas A. Edison
I am pleased to be part of the Cat's team and the team challenge. I feel encouraged by the positive energy I see and feel around me. I am not happy with my own performance and lack of success this week. Where was my positive energy???...... elsewhere. I clearly didn't take advantage of the wonderful force of nature on the on the Cats team that I could have drawn strength and encouragement from. In short I blew it.
Oh I have reasons, some version of justification, but the real deal is I didn't start with the necessary commitment, fire in the belly , etc. So, Cats and others, I will do what should have been done last week. Set daily and weekly goals. I am fessing up to messing up and I commit to to better.
Exercise 5 times this week including 2 RT sessions. (Did 3 shorter walks and 0 RT )
Track calories daily this week. (1 day last week)
Water- 8 glasses daily (did not count)
Sleep 7 hours (average 5-6 daily)
In my daily Lenten prayers, when I meditate each morning include being mindful in my self care.
And...whew....stay away from salty snacks and microbrew beer (I make my own) the night before a weigh in).
I gained .5 pound, which I would like to say was not a big deal. But that would only reinforce my self sabotage. It is a big deal, because that .5 pounds represents an entire set of mindful behaviors that needs to be in place, and were not. Today I know this. Last week I seemed to have forgotten the obvious.
My 5% challenge begins today. If I don't do better, you have my permission to strip me of my Cat's team membership and send me on my way.
Thank you or the chance to share this.
