Well, one great day to enjoy the outdoors and now back to rain. At least it turned out to be nice for the funeral. When getting home, I changed clothes and went out and picked up the yard and took a walk with the dogs. We even grilled outside and did it ever taste good.
Trying to push myself more - today was 10 minutes on the bike and 20 minutes on the threadmill. I even got the ball out and did a few situps. The ball helps support my back so I do not injury it any more. Tonight will be Zumba.
I am trying to tell my body it is time to lose some more. I haven't budged in so long. Maybe the body is saying it doesn't want to go any lower.
I found an article on how to be nice to yourself. Write yourself a short kind letter daily , befriend your inner critic, paying attention to your self-talk. Be your own BBF. Self-compassionhelps you tick with healthy habits and hard work to reach your goals. Rate yourself:
1. When I'm in emotional pain, I try to be loving toward myself.
2. When I'm feeling low, I try to approach my feelings with curiosity and
3. When I'm down and out, I remind myself that lots of other people
in the world feel like I do.
The more you practice self-compassion the closer you'll benefit from exercises. Studies show that self-compassion can help you avoid overeating and stick with an exercise routine.
