August 1, 2020 - Glad to start a brand new month
Saturday, August 01, 2020
I feel a little stuck with my weight...gained 3 pounds during the home confinement days and while I have lost 3 pounds during the 5% Challenge - I am right back to being 5 pounds over my challenge commitment to lose and 7-8 pounds over my ideal weight.
So commitment to get unstuck starts today. Our weekly 'Happy Hours' in the neighborhood host is making home-made pizza.
I ate pizza yesterday (for lunch & dinner) and the last thing I need to eat today is pizza.
So I volunteered to bring a green salad and I will exercise my resistance muscles to confine amount of pizza within proper portion size and fill up on the salad.
There will be dessert, too...so incentive to moderate is all that more important.
Maybe they will bring something that I can resist?
That includes alcohol...which I have really been overdoing these last few weeks.
More water and less wine
Yes, I have decided to put less stress and more emphasis on enjoying my life, of which I have been so richly blessed. One 'got to do it today' task and enjoyable tasks to fill the day. Less sparring with idiots and more positive actions.
Slept in today and got over 9 hours of sleep. Spent yesterday with and on the phone with girlfriends. Today I spent an hour on a zoom call with the local League of Women's Voters on volunteer opportunities. Voting is so important...so I have found a niche to work in and a group of intelligent women to work with.
That makes me feel good...and works in tandem to my new passion of Climate Change...afterall we need policy change and it starts with people exercising their voices.
