I am doing this for ME - changing my lifestyle to look, feel and BE Healthier!! This past weekend I did a lot of visualizing and could truly feel it more... how I will feel when I reach my goal in September - my birthday month.
As a result of staying alcohol free (AF) - I managed to lose 2.5lbs since Friday. I knew the first 10lbs would come off fast enough once I put my mind to it because it's the one that has been yo-yoing off and on for so long. My hope now is that perhaps by the time I do my official Friday weigh in I'll be back in 160Ville!
I got so much accomplished over the weekend and with plans to remain AF for the week, I know I'll get even more done. Little projects here and there of de-cluttering and cleaning. Feels great!
I spent time helping my step-daughter who is going through a rough time dealing with a lot of anxiety and depression. We made plans to attend an inspirational speaker's talk on Wednesday night through my association so I'm looking forward to that.
My new friend has told me he'll be quite busy for the next 2 months but that he'd try his very best to see me in the evenings when he could - and I knew this from the get go and I am totally OK with it. With everything else I'm juggling in my life - this really does fit. I know that the time we do spend together makes it worth the wait
... As I said before - it's not the relationship I envisioned and for now simply just two busy adults getting together when they can. He has shown me so far though that he's consistent and honest, and we keep in touch daily via text.
I think knowing I have someone there even though it's not a full out real relationship has given me peace for that side of my life... I am no longer searching on the dating sites and quite content with my life as it is now.
I can go on living my life without changing my routine, concentrating on my health goals and my home life... and when the time allows - we get together. No pressure - simply fun and enjoyment.
This week I'm adding to my goal of being AF and getting back to my morning workouts too. As I did some of my cleaning/organizing I sorted through the MANY exercise programs I have and plan on trying a few that I haven't ever done or haven't done in while to mix things up. I will of course also walk at lunch as long as weather permits.
I'm feeling good after getting a handle on a better pattern of AF days... and while I may allow myself one or two nights this week (Fri or Sat) - I am not sure that I will ... Today is day 8 of my streak ... which I may not want to break just yet.
What are your plans for the week? How was your weekend? No matter what remember this...
