Did 3 (count' em) days of staying on track with food (tracking and staying within limits).
Have I lost an ounce?
Darn this middle-aged-ness!
Nothing for it but to continue.
I've been a bit of an exercise slacker because of the heat and humidity, but maybe I'll treat myself to a swim this afternoon....although, looking at the thunderstorm forecast, maybe not. Sigh: It's too hot for me already, so I'll just walk down the hill (1 mile) and back and call it done for today. I already did 20 crunches, Pilates 100, and my pathetic 10 modified pushups.
Update on my words to myself from my last blog:
A) Remember that drinking water is part of the plan! I let myself get dehydrated, and if I
had been drinking water that certainly would have helped
UPDATE: The heat helps with encouraging me to WANT to drink...plus I bought bottles of "Runa Clean Energy Zero" on sale -- it has both caffeine and antioxidants -- and no calories or artificial sweetners. I like it!
B) if I really, really think I need something, let it be bottled water!
UPDATE: See above.
C) Keep driving PAST the grocery store and the gas stations. Yes, it only takes a moment of will power 'cause once I'm past the shop I'm on the way home to a glass of tea.
UPDATE: I DID it on Monday which is a day I teach and I have often let myself fall prey to vending machines at the schoool or stopping at the market on the way home at 9 p.m. -- but I DID NOT. I kept driving home. Yay me!
