Let's Try This Again

Tuesday, December 04, 2012

So yesterday was a bust, I am sorry to say. I didn't try very hard. My excuse is that my boss was not particularly happy with me so leaving my desk for an hour to go work out when I had to leave work early to begin with was not going to happen. Then I came home and hubby had McDonalds waiting for me. WHAT?! He never brings me McDonalds. Usually he'll buy a couple of sandwiches for himself and leave nothing for me which I'm fine with--I don't need the temptation. But yesterday he actually left me two sandwiches. Of course, I broke down and ate them and felt HORRIBLE afterwards. Like physically ill. I don't know why we do that to ourselves. It's unbelievable.

My husband can afford to eat crap. His metabolism is amazing. He ate 6 donuts on Sunday, McDonalds yesterday and still managed to lose 2lbs. I hate him. lol.

Some things I did do well yesterday, because you can't be successfull if all you focus on is the negative:
1. I watched my portions.
2. I blogged.
3. I tried to maintain a positive attitude even when the day got rough and, oh boy, did it get rough.

Today is a new day! Here is what I plan to do:

1. I will have time to go either to the gym or out for a jog at lunch. It's suppose to be close to 70 degrees again today so I think a jog is in order.

2. I will continue to watch my portions.

3. I will sit down and write out my goals for the month in a fitness calendar.

4. I will start tracking my caloric intake again--I used to be really good at this, now not so much.

5. Start putting up reminders that I will be going to Peru in February and I need to look AMAZING!

Thank you all for your support yesterday. I'll try to read more blogs today too. THAT definitely helps keep me motivated.

    It is good that you can focus on the positive also. You are gonna rock this. Sometimes it just takes a bit to get your momentum back. emoticon

    I think it's great to focus on the positive. It helps and I think you have set good, solid goals for yourself. I know you can reach them!

    Great perspective looking for the positive in every day no matter what occurs. Good thing is a new day has arrived and it is a chance to do even better. Way to work the program! emoticon

    I hear you! I'm finding it difficult to be consistent right now and am generally frustrated. I think your idea on making a plan is a good one - because you can't undo what's been done. Good job! Hang in there!

    Sounds like a great plan, you should calorie cycle twice a week to keep your metabolism guessing
