Reflections of a chaotic week...

Saturday, May 18, 2013

A chaotic, crazy, busy week. emoticon

Leads to a lot of reflecting and "figuring it all out". emoticon

emoticon emoticon *I turn 30 in around 3 weeks. I'm not dealing with this. I'm in denial. I am anxious and frustrated.
A. I didn't accomplish my Master's degree by 30 as I had "planned" (which, come on, I really didn't plan because I would have provided the goal more attention)
B. My weight is still not under control. My exercise isn't a priority. My eating still isn't where I want it to be.
C. Wedding isn't planned. No.Where.Near.

emoticon emoticon So... no gain this week, which is positive. I am hopeful I can still accomplish the 10 pound loss by vacation/wedding (friend's not mine).

emoticon Positives:
*I got accepted to Grad school.
(but I have now changed my mind-- I think I want to pursue the MSW and not the MA in psych)
*I AM in CONTROL of my food intake.
*I AM in CONTROL of my day and how I allow it to be spent.

emoticon I have gone to the chiropractor this week-- first three sessions were scary to me-- kind of violent-- the manipulation of the neck freaks me out. I think I'm seeing some sort of improvement-- I don't feel so achy as in the past. So I'll give it a few more weeks and see what happens.

My plan for the next 3 weeks:
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I will emoticon skipping meals!

Healthy breakfasts: oatmeal worked so well for me a few years ago. Why not use what has worked *so well* in the past? Protein pancakes? Oat pancakes? Morningstar Sausage Links. Eat something healthy.

PACK LUNCH FOR WORK!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
Drink my water. Eat my lunch-- on time! Not at 3 p.m.!

emoticon Snacks-- hard boiled eggs, cottage cheese, fruit/veggies

Dinners: batch cook on the weekend, plan meals, use leftovers

emoticon emoticon emoticon Exercise:

I want to get my minutes in.
My goal: start with 15 minutes a day.

Make time to sweat. Get the stress out. Make it a priority!

Treadmill for a mile a day minimum!

Hit the pavement!

30 day shred!

I really want a heart rate monitor. I've been researching them, but don't know what to buy. I know Polar has awesome products, but I found the monitor, but where do I find the chest strap? I just got too overwhelmed and gave up.

Here's to 10 pounds over the next month and getting control back of my life.

    Turning 30 is no big deal! You have a great plan, and know what you need to do. Cheering you on!
