Back on track

Monday, September 16, 2013

Today I am so ready to get back on track! I joined a new challenge that will last 2 weeks that includes exercise, drinking water and eating my veggies. Having a 2 week deadline helps me by thinking just get thru these 2 weeks then you can treat yourself. If I look at things too long term, they seem so hopeless but in short bursts, they seem so doable.

So I'm getting my calendar ready to put more stars on it. That's another thing that helps me. Like a child, I want to see the reward if doing a good job by putting a star there and then also being able to look back and see all those stars. It's a small thing but very helpful to me and I need all the help I can get. So cheer me on or better yet come join me. You earn a silver star by doing 30 mins of exercise, eating 3 servings of veggies and drinking 8 glasses of water. For a gold star, it's 45+ of exercise, 10+ glasses of water and 5 serving of veggies. Come get your stars, ;)

    I buy all kinds of pretty, fun stickers to put in my calendar. I've been doing it for a number of years and it always gives me a lift!

    Bear, you're right! I think I'll have to find something as a reward. It's hard because I'm not a materialistic person and there is not much I want that I don't already have. My next reward was going to be an expensive cheese I really like but rarely buy. I'll have to think about a substituation but for now, the stars are my reward.

    My challenge to you.....Why don't you learn to treat yourself with someTHING rather than a food treat?
Every time you reward yourself with food , you end up off track.....which in turn puts on whatever pounds you lost.

Buy yourself some pretty soap, a book, scarf, whatever, and stay away from the foods you know that are triggers. You have to be good to your body, before your body can give you what you want most....loss of weight

Good luck on your challenge! You always do well with a challenge and maybe you ll take up my challenge to you too! hugs hon
