Dragged back

Tuesday, July 02, 2013

So here I am again. I've fallen. Big time. No motivation whatsoever, but what are friends for. Here I am again, getting myself up and out of the mud and back on track. Not because I am strong or disciplined, or good or anything, but just because of my two sisters in arms and friends Elli and Meg. YOU are the reason I am back here, my reason WILL change again, I'm not doing it for you, but right now I can' do it for me, so I have to do it for you... does that make any sense??? Well, Meg challenged me to a July pledge... at least kind of challenged, she's doing it, Elli is doing it, so I am doing it... for them, cause right now I can't do it for me... I will be doing it for me again eventually.
So, I know it'll be the 3rd of July tomorrow already, yet I pledge that July will be different than June... The last week was just plain nightmare, my guts hurt constantly and I didn't even like what I was stuffing my face with, yet I just couldn't stop... just like a drug addict.

So, what will I pledge myself to do in this month of July. I won't go absolutes. Not the right time for absolutes:
I will drink 2l of water again, when I fall of the wagon I always stop drinking water completely, yet I realize that only water actually still my thirst, sodas just don't do it... so girl, observe and learn!!
I will allow myself one soda a week though. Just because I can. Maybe even real, fully on sugar soda... not diet pop... diet does something to my brain... uhm, so does sugar... ou well.
I will stick to 3 meals a day again and 1 or 2 snacks.... it makes me feel so much better, I hate feeling like a sick, stuffed turkey.
I will do exercise 3 times a week for now. I actually miss it...
I can have desserts/chocolate 3 times a week AFTER my dinner, NOT during the day... except on the 11th of July, cause it's my boy's 3rd birthday and I want to eat one piece of birthday cake. But everything
I will go back to a low sugar intake and as little refined sugar as possible. I won't eliminate it complete, just not practical, yet I want to give sugar the proper place in my life: an occasional treat, not a constant daily demand.
I will again blog daily, even if it's just a sentence.

So plan of action tomorrow:

drink 2l of water
track my intake again
no sweet stuff tomorrow except a little honey
make a list of meals I want to cook this coming week
when offspring has his afternoon nap I WILL do a workout video.
I will sleep "in" until ~7am
I will be in bed by 11pm
I will do my laundry (WHY is there always mountains of laundry?? WHY????)

    Don't forget to GIVE YOURSELF PRAISE or a compliment every time you do something right (like drinking the water) or avoid something negative (like eating something loaded with unhealthy)

    Building yourself up is way better than beating yourself up.

    Glad you have a plan .. Not sure about that much water? 8-10 glasses a day is recommended.
    We are here for you ..
    Thinking of you.

    Sounds like you have a great plan to get back on track! I also notice that when I fall off the bandwagon I stop drinking water too. As long as I'm getting at least my 8 glasses a day, I seem to do fine. Maybe it is true that sometimes we eat when we are really just thirsty, and that water does indeed fill us up more? It's smart that you are not cutting out things you like entirely. I look at my dessert at the end of the day as a reward for sticking to my goals throughout the day. I have something sweet pretty much every day and it hasn't hurt yet! Good luck with the month of July!
