It is amazing how easy it is to slip up when you are in the baby step stage of making new habits to replace the old. Yesterday was a busy day and I didn't blog. I thought no problem I could catch up today. Earlier tonight I got on SP to put my exercise minutes in and didn't feel like I had time to blog and caught myself thinking oh I'll do it tomorrow. So now it is almost tomorrow (11:37 pm)
and I am back to blog. I really feel like this daily blog is a new habit that is good for me to put it all out there and hold myself accountable. It's hard to hide stuff when it's posted on the Net!
Yesterday was a fun day in which I got to visit with a dear friend that I haven't seen in a long time. We met for lunch. I was very careful to not go wild with the chips and salsa that was on the table. I did not order the salad I should have though. Unfortunately poor choices continued to tempt me as the day turned into night because her son spent the night with my kids which ended up with all of the kids wanting pizza.
I did go walk on the treadmill while my hubby went to get the pizza.
Today I was determined to make better choices.
Breakfast: dry chex cereal, coffee
Lunch: 1/2 of a piece of cheese pizza
Dinner: banana, almonds, protein bar, frozen yogurt
Got on the treadmill this evening
Self reflection and accountability: Ok so I didn't make the best of choices yesterday...but I didn't totally blow it either! So...lesson learned is to not throw in the towel just because of a couple of poor choices! Today's food choices weren't the best, but this is an area I need to continue to work on. I am trying! I am proud of the fact that today is day 11 of making sure I move for a minimum of 10 minutes to keep my movement streak going. Most days I am doing about double that. I know I can continue to increase that time too. But my goal right now is consistency and habits!
I can do this! I will do this! I must do this! Let's do it together friends!
Hugs and blessings, Leisa
