Decide to write in my blog this morning since I am not getting them done at night. I have a bit more time in the mornings now since I have no transportation to play at being a taxi driver
Yesterday went well plan wise I drank 120 oz of water, did well with food, and got 30 minutes of exercise (which should have been more but I did exercise).
Emotional I had a few ups and downs but the swings were not severe and I managed them well. Not very long ago this would not have been something I would have been able to say because I wasn't managing my emotions very well.
With God's help, studying His word and through prayer I am slowly improving. I am learning to control what I can which is how I react to things because I can't control what actually happens. When I react badly I become stressed and emotionally out of control (which I hate) but when I remember to assess things in a calm manner and not blow things out of proportion before I think them through I stay much more stable emotionally. This is really helping with the emotional eating too. This is not to say I don't still get mad or sad etc. but I am just learning to deal with those feelings in a much better way.
This is part of my overall plan of my journey to health. This journey has many parts. There is the weight loss of course because with still having another 100 or so pounds to lose I am not at a healthy weight. There is making sure I eat healthy foods and in moderation. There is making sure I get a proper amount and variety of exercise. There is the emotional part I discussed above. And...
My image of my body. This may be a harder one than any of the rest of them. Even though I can fit in some x-large things in the regular sizes now I still don't see myself that way. I tried on some capris I wore a few months ago and the waist is so big they will not longer stay up but... when I look in the mirror I still see a much larger me. In my mind I know I have lost the weight but in the mirror I just don't see the almost 100 pounds I have lost. This definitely needs working on.
My healthy has improved greatly as my blood sugar and blood pressure stay in the normal range without meds most of the time. I can move around much better and am able to do much more exercise.
I think during the BLC break I will be reassessing and coming up with a tweaked plan for BLC25. BLC24 has really helped me and I am looking for to all the changes I will make during the new round that is now less than a month away from beginning. I plan do a much better job with the weight loss during the new round!
Today is going to be an on plan day for me because I have chosen to make it so!!!
