Continuing on...The next steps
Friday, June 21, 2013
Yesterday I recommitted to this journey to be a smaller healthier person. Yesterday was my 27th wedding anniversary. So my dream is to be able to wear my wedding dress for my 28th. Wouldn't that be awesome. At 2 pounds a week I should be very close for the at the next anniversary.
The negative voice in my head is telling me I haven't done it before. However one time has to be the time that I succeed.
I got some food that follows my eating plan. I have exercise worked out. I can make time to do this during the summer. Then I will get new good habits when school starts and I go back to work in the fall.
My summer plan:
I will continue to get up and ride my stationary bike.
I will be more consistent with weight training.
I will have a bowl of chopped bite size vegetables ready for a quick snack when I want a little something. (Easier to grab than the carbs I tend to gravitate towards. )
I have began "Beck Diet Solution" I love the idea but I have only done the first few pages. since it it summer I can make time for that.
I also have some fun nonfood activities to do with my 2 youngest. We will get a pool membership. We will also go to the park and the library during the summer.
I am also looking forward to learning to bead with my daughter. It will be wonderful. I hope.
I also on the first page of my Success Journal I wrote a letter to myself about what I want to have accomplished next year. Kind of a letter from the future to now. That was fun so now I just need to realize that each day counts and I will make it happen.
I hope to learn from the Beck book how to silence the voice of doubt that creeps into my head. I don't know if I am afraid of success or failure or just afraid to show who I really am to anyone including myself. But, here goes. . . I will give this a chance. I can do this.
