Bad Weekend

Sunday, January 06, 2013

I feel a bit guilty... I was pretty bad this weekend. I went chip-crazy friday night, skipped my walk Saturday, and had a mess of chicken wings (the bad kind) today; and yet, I still feel pretty accomplished!

I stuck to my two biggest initial goals: 1-No more soda; 2-No fast food. (Two things that have been a huge dark-spot in my diet lately.) AND I fought through a crazy craving attack last night. I took sips of water while counting to 100 (I only made it to 25 though), I brushed and flossed my teeth, I did crunches and reverse crunches, I drank mint tea without sugar or honey, and (eventually) I made it through! But wow. I learned a lot about myself. I hadn't realized what a mindless, late-night snacker I was!

So perhaps I won't make my weight loss goal for this week. But I'm more confident that I can make the changes I need in order to do this thing... or at least make progress. It's a good feeling.

    Small baby steps is the way to go!

    Pick one small goal & work on that till you achieve it & make it a habit. THEN......baby step 2.....pick another small goal & work on that one until you achieve it & make it a habit. Pretty soon you will be well on your journey to a healthier lifestyle.

    REMEMBER.....sometimes it is one step back & 2 steps forward. emoticon

    Sometimes a setback teaches us a lot if we're willing to look for the lessons. WTG!
