Jumping Back on the Wagon
Wednesday, September 29, 2010
This past weekend was bad for weight loss. My in-laws were in and, since I have no dining room table, we ate out at every meal. I tried to get healthier options everywhere I went - water was my drink of choice every time, and I went for grilled rather than fried foods. But it didn't always work out as well as I would have liked and I knew that I was going over calories eaten and under calories burned.
But today I decided I needed to get back on the wagon. I'm still drinking the things I should be (PowerAde Zero or water) and trying to eat the healthier things (like rice cakes). For all that it's calling my name, the extra cake from my son's birthday this weekend has not been touched yet today. And I exercised. First time in several days that I actually went out of my way to exercise. I did 15 minutes of dance, 20 minutes of yoga and then strength training. I ache everywhere, but it's a good ache. And it feels good. My clothes are soaked with sweat and I keep forgetting how much I don't mind this (though a shower is coming up soon!)
On top of the physical feeling good, I'm still working on the mental good feelings. My house is still in pretty good shape and I'm jumping back into FlyLady full tilt. Plus, I started back on Swap Bot. Having something that's scheduled to be done, and not having to be done "right away" is a plus for me. I'm not working on my crafting stuff - I think that's too far above what I can do right now. But I can write letters and e-mail stuff, so that is a plus.
So for all that I stumbled, I haven't fallen. And that's what I need to remember.
