So today...

Thursday, June 09, 2016

I'm feeling slightly more motivated. Slightly. I have to admit the water didn't go well yesterday, I was so busy first thing in the morning that it through my whole day off. Also, I hit up the vending machine again. So, today I remembered to leave my wallet in my car. This has almost always been effective for me.....that is, until I forget it's in my car and go into a store and can't find it. Whoops.

Anyway, today I promised my amazing friend that I would focus very much on what I could do instead of what I can't do. I feel a more positive attitude just typing that.

What I can do, easily: Drink all my water. I love water. I really really do, this should not be an issue for me.

What I can do: I can stay out of the vending machine. For me it is simply a matter of habit, and truly getting past this week of the month. It's pre TOM week and I'm smart enough to know that's what it is by now.

What I can do: I can have a more positive attitude about this. I've been pretty grumpy about it, forcing myself. It feels wrong. No, I'm not quite ready to jump in with both feet, but I AM ready to start.

What I can do: I can be kind to myself. I can stop saying things like "if I wasn't such a cow" or "I've got enough flubber to jump to the moon. Twice.".

What I can do: I can continue reading your blogs. They inspire me. They remind me that I once did this. They remind me that everyone struggles, but we can't give up.

Thank you so much for everything you do, without even realizing it.

    Hello old friend! Lovely to see you back posting. Looking at your FB posts, you do indeed look very happy, which is lovely to see. I hope you do this, for your sake, and get to a weight you feel comfortable at. I have missed your cheery face, and brilliant blogs. I hope you find what works for you this time - maybe you need to review the whole thing in light of your new life...maybe you need new strategies for a new you? :-) I'm very glad you are back x

    Be kind to yourself, and baby steps. I will say, taking certain things gradually had really helped me. You got this my friend.

    I struggle with water at times too. A friend told me to mark on a fun cup what times I need to drink so much by. It has helped, but like you said, sometimes I just get so busy at work I don't think about the water bottle even though it is sitting right next to me.

    All we can do is take it one day at a time. We can do this!

    I set up a drinking schedule, if you will. Every hour, on the hour, I drink a glass of water. It gives me an excuse to get away from what I'm doing, refresh my brain by hydrating it, and I'm drinking more.
