two days of success

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

I am very proud of my actions yesterday. I worked out. I made my 6000+ steps. I weighed and measured. I ate low carb and very healthy. I went to bed on time and slept well. A successful day. One of many to come.
Today I am realizing that I am confusing energy level with motivation. My energy level is low because I took Benadryl to sleep last night, but my motivation is still very high. Seems dumb, but this is the first time that I realized motivation and energy are not the same thing. Energy helps motivation, but does not dictate motivation. My motivation is increasing as the day continues and the Benadryl wears off.
It is so quiet in the house. Everyone is gone. There is a very slight breeze outside (maybe 5 mph), no TV, no radio, just me finding peace and quiet. That was an hour ago, then my son called for a ride to the store to get dog food and my daughter called to say she needed my post office box key could we meet for lunch. Laughing - the best laid plans of mice and men.
My plans today are to go through the rest of the freezer and plan meals, to do some exercise videos, to journal, and to spend some time evaluating and assessing.
Now in the evening I have met many of my goals for the day. did an exercise video, went through the freezer, and did some journaling. Now once again the big challenge is to go to bed on time. I feel like I am on the first step of a more successful journey. For the first time in a long time I actually believe I can lose weight.
