I will not get discouraged. I will not beat myself up. I will not give up.
Yesterday was day ONE of my self-imposed countdown to Christmas challenge. Eat healthy (i.e.: stay in my calorie range every day), drink 6+ cups of water, and do some form of exercise every day. Well, I stayed in my calorie range and drank enough water, but I didn't manage to work out....
Here comes the excuse... ;) I was going to try a new DVD, and I realized I never replaced the DVD player in the living room. Oops. So then I thought I'd pull up a yoga routine on a system we call "the box". And of course, the operating system needed updated, and as I am not a full fledged computer nerd, I stumbled through it and it took me almost 3 hours before I figured it all out! By then it was 10:30pm and yes, I skipped it. Day 1... and I already feel like I failed.
BUT, regardless, today is a new day and day 2 of good habits and healthy actions. I believe tonight I'll get on the treadmill and then do some yoga (that makes up for yesterday, right?). I'm also already on track for my calories and water.
Did I mention I sit at a desk all day? Well, I'm trying to shake things up a little there too. Nothing major, and nothing I'll track (as far as calorie burn), but with the extra water I'm drinking I figure I'd add a positive to my increased potty visits. Each time I go, I'm going to do a mini "workout"... a set of squats or wall pushups, etc. I'd imagine I'll get 6+ in a day... At least I'm getting in a little movement!
Ok... that is all. :)
