I don't even remember where I read that, but I do know it was Spark People-related. I like to remind my fellow struggling or frustrated Sparker that's what to focus on, not how far you haven't gotten. That's just so negative! I've struggled with depression for most of my life, and I am, frankly, sick of negative thinking. I don't want to get into a story for another time, but let's just say my mom has been a profuse and persistent source of negativity about as far back as I can remember feeling depressed...Anyway, I am now obstinate about negative thinking, being that I refuse to think negatively! I'll admit that I make mistakes, that I don't always try as hard as I could have, but then its done. All I can do is keep moving forward!
So, today was much better than yesterday. I got a late start, thanks to a special monthly visitor who was weeks late
I did do the main things I set out to do today, though. I stayed in my calorie range, however, I did go over my fat intake range less than 10 grams. Close enough, I will do better tomorrow! Somehow I gained three pounds between yesterday and today? I don't know about that, probably has something to do with my excessively high sodium intake yesterday...I'm going the wrong way! I'm supposed to getting that poundage down, darn it! I guess all I can do is keep exercising and stay in my calorie range for maybe a whole week straight, huh?
See, now if you can't laugh at yourself, you're being too serious! That seems like a streak I could challenge myself to reach, especially since that BLC#16 is starting soon...Challenge accepted! I will work out every day for the next 7 days and stay within my calorie range! Too often I treat working out as an excuse to overeat. I say, I should reward myself by getting closer to my goal weight, which I'll feel way better about in the long run. Enough is enough! I'm doing it! Follow along, won't you?
Oh, I wasn't done talking about today...Well, I dusted and vacuumed the foyers of the five apartment units my parents own. I am not good at guessing distances but it does take about two minutes for me to walk to the adjacent building lugging the vacuum. I also did housecleaning for my parents for a little over three hours, so I feel like it was a productive day, even though I didn't get half the things done I wanted to. Okay, its nearly bedtime. Good night all and stay tuned for Day One of my 7 day streak!
