Only Fooling Myself

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

I've been doing such a GREAT job....April Fools :P

I wish I could say that I've been consistent and I've been accountable and that I've been doing a great job but I'm not and I'm only fooling myself. I have 6 months left until my wedding and I am nowhere near my goal weight. This is my own fault and it's been very hard for me to try and get my mentality right for this journey. I know this month will be sressful for me because I have 4 tests left before graduation and every point counts. I'm doing much better overall this time around with my last semester of nursing school but that is seriously all I have been able to focus on.

So here's the plan for the stressful month of April:

- pack food for work and make sure I pack ENOUGH!! - I've actually been doing good with packing food but I don't pack enough so then I take a trip to the cafeteria for a snack and I end up buying something I shouldn't have
- dont skip meals!! - I've noticed that on my days off that I don't eat and this will NOT help me lose weight because I know my body goes into starvation mode. And when I do eat, it's not teh greatest stuff to eat
- HYDRATE!!!! I've been slacking with my water drinking. At work I do a decent job but I definitely do horrible when I'm home

Taking baby steps and hopefully when everything calms down I can stay focused and reach my goals!!

    Great plan. You can do this. When I get in slumps, I do what you do, packing healthy snacks so I can eat something lite and healthy every three hours (speeds up metabolism).

    I also walk more. I try to get in two or three 10 or 15 minute walking breaks if work isn't too busy and I walk my dog in the evening if it's not raining. If it's cold, I pile on the clothes. I find that spreading activity out during the days helps burn calories all day long.

    I'm behind ya baby, go for it!

    Try not to beat yourself up, it really won't help anything. Six months is plenty of time to get things back on track and you've got some great ways to get there listed. You got this!!!
