Days 15 and 16 - Frustrated!
Wednesday, July 17, 2013
I have been fighting some negative feelings over the last couple of days as far as my weight loss efforts and exercise goals are going so far. It's like this fight between my logical brain (slow and steady wins the race) and my desire to be *there* already. Over the last year of eating poorly and not exercising, I have lost so much stamina. I used to be able to do 60 minutes of intervals on the elliptical last year at this time. Today, I barely made 20 minutes. Ugh. I am so mad at myself.
OK, I've said it. That's enough. Time to be done with these negative thoughts. They lead to stress, and I don't want more stress. Woo-saw!
Other than my inner monologue, these last two days have been great. A co-worker brought in my favorite cupcakes yesterday especially for me, and I was so tempted to have one, but I resisted! I felt a little guilty because they were for me, but I feel pretty good about how I handled it.
