My weekend was pretty fun. Friday night there was a double rainbow! I didn't get a very good picture, but it was definitely a nice surprise to see! I went strawberry picking & tart cherry picking on Saturday morning. I froze half of the strawberries & I may try to make some cherry jam! I never did it before, but I am all about trying new things this year! When I woke up Saturday morning, I had a new kind of motivation. It wasn't forced - maybe that is why I feel different now. I WANTED to exercise and be outside so I did! The day was so relaxing, and I got some exercise in. I felt happy & I felt like I have the strength to reach my goals! Somehow I still feel different, and I am enjoying it!
The work day is going by pretty fast for me today. Tomorrow is my second kickboxing class. I am excited & nervous about it even though I did it once already! My calves still aren't 100% from last week's class! My legs felt sore in spots I never knew existed! I went for a walk last night with my Mom & the dogs which was nice. My Dad ALMOST went with us, but then he changed his mind at the last minute. He should get more exercise, but then his emphysema gets worse. Damn smoking. He quit & restarted about 10 times in the past few months. There isn't anything we can do, so we just gave up telling him he needs to stop. Unfortunately it isn't worth the arguments. He knows how we all feel. Oh well. I tell myself that it is his choice, but I still get upset about it because he is my Dad!
I have been doing good with tracking my food. I did well over the weekend & today so far. I wanted to snack so badly last night, but I didn't go overboard! I had some strawberries, bananas, and grapes and that was it. I tracked it all! I need to keep telling myself I am in control of what I eat! I used to be so good at saying no. I just need to keep doing it again & stick with it!
Hopefully everyone has a great week. Keep pushing towards your goals or make new ones! I need to keep reminding myself that every small step counts!
