Before and After journal - Day 1
Saturday, November 29, 2008
It was a dreary day and my energy level was low. As I set my goals for the newest challenge I just knew that I wasn't going to accomplish anything today. After a few minutes of considering going back to bed I decided that I was going to the gym. I hurried to get dressed and in the car before I could change my mind. I knew that if I thought about it I would start the old mental games with myself. So away I rushed. I got in 90 minutes of full circuit training that included 30 minutes on the treadmill. Left there full of energy and good spirits.
As for my other goals I didn't do as well on them. I did check out several Spark articles about setting mini goals and I read & printed off a list of suggested rewards. All thru my weight loss I have set a small reward for a different goals but when I reached the goal I would decide that it didn't deserve a reward for one reason or another. This needs to change! I am telling myself the I am not important by doing that. I would keep my promise to anyone else.
Another goal is to keep my sodium in check. I was doing great until dinner. DH decided he wanted something different than I had planned and instead of fighting I cooked what he wanted. Granted I am at the low end of my calorie range but my sodium is very, very high. I have got to control this before I have to go back on BP Med's.
All things considered I am proud I got as much done today as I did. I think I have had a good start on this challenge.
I am so tired tonight that I am going to get off this puter and get into bed. Boy it is going to feel good!
