Day 119 Another Day at Home

Friday, July 06, 2012

Today I was forced to go to the department of labor for a reemployment session which was scheduled to be 3 hours. The session leader reviewed the resources on their website and let us go after an hour Yay! This was great because I was able to get home in time to keep my appointment with my weight loss coach.

I lost 3lbs this week and my weight loss coach was thrilled although she doesn't believe I'm eating enough calories, she gets suspicious when I lose more than 2 lbs per week. I do need to start walking to get in my 10,000 steps and I have no excuse since I'm not working and my dog would love to go.

I spent a lot of time in front of the tv lazily lounging in the air conditioning and I feel guilty because I know I should be excersizing it's just so hot and I'm so good at making excuses and procrastinating. Tomorrow is another day to start over. I am trying to rid myself of all or nothing thinking and setting expectations to high. I just need to start slow for once with realistic goals and expectations so I stop setting myself up for failure. Wish me luck!

    I do wish you luck. I will tell it it is possible to get beyond the all or nothing thinking. Hare work with my therapist, but now I realize when I am doing it and can make other plans.
    Not to give you an excuse.... but this heat is enervating... just saps the energy.

    I totally understand! I cannot bring myself to go out walking when I'm already too warm just sitting around in my house. And really, it's almost too hot to take dogs walking. I even am a member of a gym two blocks from my house, and I can't motivate myself enough to get off my fanny and go there to walk on a treadmill. Now I'm embarrassed! emoticon
