Just for today, it's all about patience, or is it?

Wednesday, September 04, 2013

I am impatient, and worried. The last 2 times I tried to lose weight I got to just over 240 and stopped losing. But just for today, I'm going to do my job, I'm going to follow my healthy guidelines, and I will meditate.

Yesterday was a running day, and I tried to talk myself out of it, but in the end I had a good 30 minute run. Day 1 Week 9, C25K. It's okay if I don't finish this week. I will allow myself to finish next week if I have to. But I did not quit, and I did not go back several weeks like I have in the past. I just accepted that the last 2 weeks held other challenges for me, and took a practice run on Sunday.

Working with a Just For Today attitude is about not worrying about what happened in the past, or what might happen in the future, so patience doesn't play a role. Just for today, I am not worried about that 1 lb that stands between me and the 20 lb line. I will celebrate the 1 lb that no longer weighs me down.

    my son is in na, just for today is their mantra. i have been trying to use it for my own for a year now, and i lost sight of it, but im trying to get back to it, of course, i have plans not to break my walking streak as long as the weather holds out, so i cant use it for that.
i also hit a plateau and havent lost any weight in a long time, long story, broken foot, etc
but i am optimistic, my foot is healed and im walking again
healing my body and my mind.

    You can repeat weeks as many times as you need to. Just keep working on today. Every day.
