Pushing on!!

Wednesday, June 22, 2016

Hey Sparkies,

Today was a good day. Was it a perfect day? Heck no but I still consider it a win.

So last night I perfectly planned out my meals for the day and had calories to spare and then today my day went NOTHING as planned. I woke up late and so my planned breakfast was out and then my DH picked me up from school at lunch time but he was driving a friend around to get some business done and then there went my perfectly planned lunch. Our friend treated us to lunch and it wasn't the healthiest of fare (and it's definitely what tipped me over my calorie range) but I'm not mad at myself.

I could have eaten less of the lunch yes but by the time we had it I was starving and so that was the last thing on my mind but normally if I had, had a lunch like this in the past I would have thrown my hands in the air because of that stupid and irrational all or nothing mentality and thrown the day away but I didn't do that!! When I finally got home I changed the perfectly planned dinner to something much lighter to make up for such a heavy lunch and so the day ended up being not so bad and I think I deserve a emoticon for that!! emoticon

Also on the exercise front, with the late wake up I obviously missed my workout but after getting home I had a nap, woke up and crushed it!! I did my Insanity Max:30 workout (I restarted the program again yesterday after finishing it last week Friday) and a 20 minute upper body TurboFire workout. I've decided to incorporate the strength training from TurboFire with my Max 30 workouts to try and build more strength and try to shock my body a little since it may be getting a little used to Max 30 (this being my 4th round and all emoticon ). So I did both videos and I'm super proud of myself and I just hope that I'm not too sore tomorrow.

All in all as I said a good day. I really feel like I'm regaining my winning mindset!! I'm not going to rush myself to lose this weight. I've been doing that for THREE years (ironically enough) and that has gotten me nowhere so I'm just going to try and focus as best as I can and take days like today in stride and see where that takes me.

emoticon soooo much for the outpouring of support on yesterday's blog which helped in getting me back here mentally. Let's all emoticon emoticon
