Being defeated is often temporary ...

Thursday, August 27, 2009

... giving up makes it permanent.

Today I'm not terribly defeated, but I should keep this in mind since there are still cupcakes at home. If I have a few, ok, if I eat more than I planned, okay but don't use it as an excuse to go all and crazy! I have to at least try and maintain through Sat., and then be really good on Sun for Monday weigh-in. Since we are going out to dinner Fri and Sat and out to breakfast Sun, this could be tough.

Anyway, I'm at work right now doing my blog entry early. I have a turkey in the crockpot at home with some potatoes, and tonight I am going to make my sister's Princess Aurora Halloween costume, or at least a good chunk of it. That should keep me busy and away from cupcakes.

I also need to get in some aerobic exercise tonight, I don't know if my husband will want to walk or not. If not, I have a stationary bike for a reason!

Ok, I should stop procrastinating and work during my last half hour at work. Bye all!

    You are an inspiration Melissa! Very well said on everything. It is fine if we have a small ingdulgence now and then, but it is only when we continue to indulge and through everything out the window that we are defeated. Like you, I may take a moment to stop and enjoy a little of life, but I stay focused on the future. Enjoy the time with your sister! Oh, by the way...I am the same way regarding a stationary bike. Have trouble getting hubs to walk or exercise much.

    I love it. You are working the plan and not stressing. For me the stressing is the time and place I go off the deep end and would have to run 55 miles with a 150 lb barbell to burn the excess calories off. Thanks for helping me keep focused on the trek to healthy living and avoiding the stress of the world.
