So here I am again. I've fallen. Big time. No motivation whatsoever, but what are friends for. Here I am again, getting myself up and out of the mud and back on track. Not because I am strong or disciplined, or good or anything, but just because of my two sisters in arms and friends Elli and Meg. YOU are the reason I am back here, my reason WILL change again, I'm not doing it for you, but right now I can' do it for me, so I have to do it for you... does that make any sense??? Well, Meg challenged me to a July pledge... at least kind of challenged, she's doing it, Elli is doing it, so I am doing it... for them, cause right now I can't do it for me... I will be doing it for me again eventually.
So, I know it'll be the 3rd of July tomorrow already, yet I pledge that July will be different than June... The last week was just plain nightmare, my guts hurt constantly and I didn't even like what I was stuffing my face with, yet I just couldn't stop... just like a drug addict.
So, what will I pledge myself to do in this month of July. I won't go absolutes. Not the right time for absolutes:
I will drink 2l of water again, when I fall of the wagon I always stop drinking water completely, yet I realize that only water actually still my thirst, sodas just don't do it... so girl, observe and learn!!
I will allow myself one soda a week though. Just because I can. Maybe even real, fully on sugar soda... not diet pop... diet does something to my brain... uhm, so does sugar... ou well.
I will stick to 3 meals a day again and 1 or 2 snacks.... it makes me feel so much better, I hate feeling like a sick, stuffed turkey.
I will do exercise 3 times a week for now. I actually miss it...
I can have desserts/chocolate 3 times a week AFTER my dinner, NOT during the day... except on the 11th of July, cause it's my boy's 3rd birthday and I want to eat one piece of birthday cake. But everything
I will go back to a low sugar intake and as little refined sugar as possible. I won't eliminate it complete, just not practical, yet I want to give sugar the proper place in my life: an occasional treat, not a constant daily demand.
I will again blog daily, even if it's just a sentence.
So plan of action tomorrow:
drink 2l of water
track my intake again
no sweet stuff tomorrow except a little honey
make a list of meals I want to cook this coming week
when offspring has his afternoon nap I WILL do a workout video.
I will sleep "in" until ~7am
I will be in bed by 11pm
I will do my laundry (WHY is there always mountains of laundry?? WHY????)
