Day 3

Wednesday, April 02, 2014

Today is only day 3 and I am still so excited! I realize I am in the "honeymoon" phase, but I have high hopes of this being the time that I really do it! I know I won't lose weight every week, and I am trying to tell myself that it is ok. Even if I don't lose I am still living a healthy lifestyle. That is more important than anything.

And I absolutely refuse to put food into either "good" or "bad" categories. I know some foods I have to be careful with. And I have to exercise moderation. But that is ok. There is always tomorrow and I can have more then, if I want it.

I even felt like doing a little bit more on the exercise bike last night. So I did. I am only competing with myself. If I feel like I can do more, I will add a few more minutes.

I was pleasantly surprised that last evening after doing my stretches and exercises, my sore muscles felt better. And I have been relaxing in between exercises. So when I go to bed, I am relaxed and ready to sleep. This is helping many areas of my life.

Before I felt ashamed of myself if I only rode my bike 5 minutes and did 3 sets of 5 exercises. But why??? I dont' need to do this to add points to a team. I am doing this for me. When I finally got that thru my head, it seemed so much easier and actually doable!

And I was thinking about my calorie range. I do well on at least 1500 calories a day. I kept thinking I really need to only do 1200. But I was hungry. And that led to snacking and cheating. Why was I not feeding my body when I was hungry? And why was I hungry? I live on a farm. Some days I do very hard work. What was I trying to do to myself anyway?

So I decided to listen to my body and figure out what works for me. When that quits working, it will be time to re-evaluate and find something that will work.

Life is difficult enough without me being mean to myself! So I want to treat myself well and get as healthy as possible!

    This is just emoticon !!! So often we worry about what we are NOT doing and lose sight of the amazing things we have done and are doing! I think that by letting go of the stress, you will see even better results. Great job! emoticon

    I always figure treats into my diet. I just make sure it is within calorie range.
