Awareness Week

Sunday, June 17, 2012

This was my week to get so much done. I was supposed to be undisturbed by DH and DS because both were out for business. Instead, I spent a lot of time off track. Work was a little more stressful because DH and DS were gone, so I had to take care of everything. It probably wasn't the best time to upgrade our operating system and to conduct our mid-year inventory. But, we did both. This has meant long hours at the office, and then once I got home, there was no planning done and so I would start grazing at home.

Lessons learned.... I know that I need to get my water in, my exercise done, and everything well planned to be successful. I proved it last year when I was losing on the liquid diet. And yet, I have learned that I am not either disciplined enough or aware enough of my own needs to make sure it happens. That there is a real danger of slipping, if I allow myself to go on autopilot mode. I need to be more self aware, and to remember that I need to take care of myself first....this means good sleep, good water, healthy good, and stress control!

On a more positive note, tonight, I finally got my body measurements done, and I have researched a couple of exercise plans and some routes for walks. So tonight, I am starting with a good nights sleep. And tomorrow, its goal and activity time. I know that I can do this.. and I can learn to take care of myself as well.

Goals for this week:
1. 9 Glasses of water each day
2. Stretches each day
3. At least 10 minutes of cardio each day
4. No fast food, and no processed sweets.
5. Make a point to do a quick self check for self-awareness every few hours.. hunger scale, etc.

Yeah, Sunday! Time for a new week!
