Today's kick in the Butt

Sunday, March 31, 2013

I'm sitting here on the couch. Quite cozy. Still lounging in my housecoat.

Made Hubby and I breakfast about an hour ago. It was pretty good. It has more fat/calories than I have for breakfast during the week, but it's kind of my weekend treat to myself.

This weekend I've discovered I tend to not eat as well, and not drink my water on weekends. When I discovered this, I resolved to change that this weekend. Well, today is day 3 of this 4 day weekend. I hate to admit it, but I haven't changed a thing.

I guess I'm still kind of moping around still. Looks like I've got more stuff to work out with this cut back in my hours at work than I thought. I am actually worried about when they want me to put in the overtime again. I really don't have any interest in doing that again. I'm honestly afraid it'll cost me my job - refusing to going back to working 11+hours a day. I'm just not interested in it at all anymore. It takes too big a toll on my health. I'll have to get this out soon. In the meantime, there's nothing I can do about it, so I need to stop worrying.

I've been trying for over half an hour to find my motivation to get up and go running. I didn't run yesterday. Once we got back from the Auction, I fell asleep. Seriously. Slept all night. I must have needed the rest.

Now it's time to get moving again.

I'm sitting here right now with some anxiety mounting. I'm feeling stressed. Stressed about the work situation. Stressed about working out. I guess I should clarify that. I'm feeling stressed because I had the best intentions for this weekend, and here it is almost over and ....

Okay, I did go running on Friday. I ate well Friday as well. Until after supper anyhow. Yesterday, no fitness. No tracking food. I didn't eat all that well either. I was craving "crap". I caved. I had two gluten free smokies on gluten free hotdog buns. Didn't drink enough water - I only had 4 cups all day.

I guess I haven't wasted the whole weekend. I took one day off. If I get moving and get back on track right now, it'll only be 24 hours that I was off track. That's honestly not so bad. We all need a rest day, so it'll make it easier for me to not keep kicking myself.

What's my small step today?

I just went off on a long LONG tangent - see my blog "A light bulb"

Anyhow, back to kicking my own butt

Are you willing to work for it? You will only see a 1lb weight loss, if you work out HARD all week long. Not just show up and do what you have to to get through it.

Seriously. Are you going to let the couch win? Or are you going to do what you need to do to start to climb that mountain?

Look closely at these two pictures. Recognize them? THIS WAS YOU. After 9 months of hard work - and yes, that included at least 5 months of plateaus. You set your goal and reached it. It didn't happen over night, but you made it.

Get out there and do what you can today to reach this goal tomorrow.

    Weekends can be tough. I usually take Sat. off and if I start the day off with an unhealthy meal, the rest of the day seems to get worse. Just keep trying. Eventually it'll all fit into place. emoticon emoticon

    Weekends are just another day to our boduies. The same rules apply on weekends as on weekdays. emoticon emoticon

    Weekends are tough for me too. I think it's because of loss of routine. I just can't seem to get a handle on them either. Little water (I did fill my bottles this morning just like on a work day - see if that helps), crap food, and almost no exercise. Really it's just Sundays and the random 3rd day on the occasional 3 day weekend. Saturday is my eat what I want and be a slug day and I need one of those.
