Rough month but still focused

Tuesday, June 27, 2017

As a teacher, I get my summers off (most of it, at least) but I have to say I am finding it difficult to stay on track this month. I've been okay for the most part but I feel like I could have done so much more this month. I've had workshops and trips that have thrown me for a loop and I really needed to re-evaluate my goals and what I needed to change in my diet (AGAIN). I may have wasted a couple of weeks in the month of June to different temptations like eating out at restaurants and not thinking about what I was eating, but I will persevere. June is not over yet and July will be better.

On another note, I was talking to my trainer who had some great questions for me today. I thought about them, pretty much all day. I had some A-HA moments that made me realize that I've come a long way. This makes me completely emotional and I'm not really sure why. Don't worry, I didn't cry at the gym again (see my other blog). But I did realize that there have been many non-scale victories that I have not celebrated. Again, this makes me emotional, but in a happy way. It makes me see that I need to focus on the positive and not beat myself up about mistakes I've made along the way.

For some positives...I've been going to the gym every day I can and I work hard there. I try to push myself more and more each day so that I can stay ahead of my goals and not slump into a rut. The exercise helps so much and it makes me feel so much better. To the point where I know I would not be able to stop exercising. This is a habit that will stick with me because I absolutely love it. It makes me feel good about myself and I can see the difference in my daily life.

I'm excited about July...I'm gonna kick it's butt. emoticon

    It is so hard to stay focused when your routine has changed so much for the summer! You will get it worked out! You are doing the right things and having a trainer is a real help!
