Staying Positive

Sunday, October 27, 2013

I'm naturally optimistic about most things. Most things. But this weight loss thing is hard! Fitness is tough for me during the week now that I can't work from home. And food is tough on the weekend. Tough, but not insurmountable. Today, I did both!! 97 pushups, a wallsit, 20 minute bike ride, and some serious house cleaning. The pushups were killer (had to do a few on my knees...just a few), but the crowning achievement was staying in my calorie range. If I can do it one day, I can do it for two. I'm ready to start a new streak. I can and I will!!

    So good to read this. How is your week going? You had a good start on Saturday and I hope that carried you through....... I'm going to track my water and food intake today (Wednesday, Oct. 30) I've got to plan. That just reminded me of the quote: "If you fail to plan, then plan to fail." Guess I best come up with a plan! LOL Best to US this week!

    Wow! 97 pushups, that's amazing! Congrats on staying in your calorie range. If you can do it one day, you can do it another day too. You had a great day! emoticon

That's fantastic, you had a "perfect" day! And it's okay if some days don't look quite like that. Just don't give up, that's all.

There's an athlete inside of you. Now it's time to let her out! emoticon

Love, Ginger

    The best way to feel a winner is to make it difficult.

We make so many things, especially when they are in our best interests, so difficult.
