Setting the Scene for a Better Week

Monday, March 25, 2013

Weighed in today 3 days later than my normal weigh-in. I decided "get it over with" because I knew I had been playing fast and loose with my health journey. And that's why I hadn't weighed in because I didn't want to see it in black and white on the scale. I was on a definite detour and spent the past 3 days wrestling with my emoticon and am now in a better place. It's time to set the scene for success this week.

So here's the remedial steps I've taken:

* Went to the grocery store with a plan. Hit the produce hard, bought some cereal without sugar, and added some simple snack stuff that works for me without doing a lot of damage.

* Pulled out my yoga mat & placed it in position behind my desk chair so I'm reminded to do 5-10 minutes of yoga at least once a day.

* Started taking my vitamins again. I had stopped that too. emoticon

* I read some SP stuff (friends blogs, articles, tips) to get me refocused. It always helps. emoticon

* Set up my weekly chart to measure my calorie deficits. For me to keep an eye on my calories/exercise at any level at all I obviously have to track things. This works for me but when I let it go I know I'm sliding away from my plan. So it's set up again.

That's it. I hope by the end of the week to see the scale reflect the good things I'm doing. Let's all have a GREAT week! emoticon

    Yep. I understand. When I put off weighing in the results is never good. Now your plan looks great. I love having lots of freggies in the house. That is always a huge help. Being all set up to measure calorie deficits means you are measuring the right things, especially when you are making those great food choices like freggies. You can do this!! You are doing it. You are on your way!

    I could definitely stand to take a page from this book! I finally womaned up this morning & got on the scales. Was very surprised to find myself at the lowest weight in God knows when. It was NOT because I've been good emoticon . Decided I should take my good fortune and build on it. So far today had been stellar...but it's only half over. Let's knock this one out of the park...shall we?

    Delaying my weigh in never works for me.
