March Week Four

Sunday, March 29, 2009

This has been an interesting week. I was out of town and so nutrition was difficult and workouts were good but under my normal amount of minutes. I did pretty well. I have membership at a club that has locations in different cities, so I was able to use my membership where I was, which was great. I felt good this week. I don't normally talk about how I feel but I think emotions weigh so heavily on our progress. Where we are emotionally determines how quickly we reach our goals. They determine what we are going to eat and how much we are going to eat.

I used to be an emotional eater, but I didn't realize it. I just ate to comfort myself when I was bored or down and out. I am learning now to take my frustrations out on the treadmill or elliptical. They were made to withstand a pretty tough beating. And I do my best to give them one. LOL!

I realize I am off track as far as my timeline to reach my goal. But, that is not the important thing. It is more important to still be working towards my goal than to be at a predisposed point that I came up with. I am still learning to enjoy the journey. Noticing the things going on around me. Paying attention to what I see and hear and recording those things in my mind for later. I am admiring myself in the mirror and looking at pictures of the old me. (I have some new ones to post - they blew me away). And I am I soaking in all the great things I am learning on this site.

Week Four was not my best by far, but not my worst. I learned I can go out of town and make decent decisions and I CAN find time for "me" where ever I am. I took time to have a massage and a pedicure while I was gone. The best thing I did all week! I am worth it!!

Have you taken yourself off the priority list? If so, it is time to regroup!! There is no one more important than you. Start from where you are . . . .Spring into Summer with me one pound at a time.

    It really sounds like you know exactly where you are going in your life. That is great!! Staying motivated and "on track" can be a hard thing for all of us at one time or another and this post is a good re-motivational tool.
