Day 2 of 'Tude
Sunday, March 03, 2013
So it is day 2 on my 31 Days of 'Tude and I am so glad that I decided to do something about my attitude. To be honest, the more I think about it, the more I can see how stinkin' my thinkin' has been. I am sure that as the month goes on, I will have more areas that will need to be uncovered and dealt with. I am up for the challenge!
Today I got up and decided that my "theme" for the day would be I CAN DO 10!! What the idea on that is that I could do 10 minutes of exercise today. I also decided to do 10 squats every time I went to the bathroom. I ended the day with 50 minutes of exercise! I didn't have to drag myself to do it. I just told myself that I could do 10 throughout the day and it got done!
I also told myself that I could follow my eating plan for the day. Although I had a bit of a slip in the evening, I did really well. My daughter wanted me to try a piece of lemon cake that she brought home. I told her that I would rather not. She insisted that I "had" to try it. I told her that I didn't "have" to try it. She said that a bite wouldn't hurt me and I just said that I would just take her word for it and she could just enjoy it. BOOYAH!!!
Okay I did have a bit of a slip up this evening but it was nowhere near what it could have been or what it has been in the past. I allowed myself to have a small treat. I had the treat and then moved on. It wasn't in my plan for the day but I controlled the amount that I had. I didn't allow myself to go crazy with it or to just continue to eat my way through the whole kitchen! BOOYAH!! I continued to tell myself that I could stick with my plan. I can do it! I can stick to my plan!!!
So for a recap of Day 2, I would say that making an adjustment to my attitude had a positive affect on my day. When my mind tried to push me to overeat or to eat things that weren't on my plan I was able to change those thoughts to positives and find a way through without completely falling off track. I felt like I was more in control instead of food controlling me.
**It looks like for the next week, I will have 2 blogs a day as I have a challenge to do a blog a day for the 5% challenge. The challenge falls well into what I am doing but I am going to do the blogs separately. **
Much love & positive thoughts!
