Getting a little closer

Monday, June 03, 2013

So I've had my surgery and even though I'm not supposed to exercise, I have. Granted, I'm not lifting weights or doing anything too strenuous, but I know that if I were to ask, the doc would say no. I'm not hurting in any way, so that's why I continue with it... that is what she did tell me in the beginning - if it hurts, stop. I just took that a step further and thought that also MAY mean if it doesn't hurt, keep on w/ur bad self. ;-)

But before I started exercising more, I decided that I shouldn't let the surgery recuperation time be any reason to fall off any get healthy wagon that I was trying to climb aboard... so I started looking at and tracking my foods.

I feel good about my nutrition tracking and now my fitness tracking too. I think I have two goals to try to make (again) - no snooze button and cut the Dr. Peppers.

1 - the snooze button. I hate that thing. I never used it before I got married, 14 years ago. Then my husband and I started getting out of bed at the same time and I allowed myself to use his snooze time (about 8 years now). Unfortunately, it takes me long to get moving than it does him. Since I hate it so much, and I really felt much better when I didn't use that stinkin' button, I've added it to my fast track goals and I believe I can kick the habit.

2. - this is no surprise right. Dr Pepper is no friend to me... and sadly its any soda that will get me back on to drinking DPs again. A friend told me her mantra when she was kicking the smoking but: This is no longer who I am. I won't use __DP/sodas__ as a coping mechanism. I don't want this to be who I am. Drinking Dr Peppers will not define me. Both of my kids are on my tail to quit too - they are 5 and 7! It feels awful for them to tell me that... next time I'm going to empty it even if I just bought it.

When I read these statements after lunch today, I decided to throw out my soft drink and replace it w/ice cold H2O b/c that is what I truly wanted and I'm tired of my mouth feeling sugary gross.

I WILL do well today!
