I got into the 8:30 am Sunday morning spin class this morning. The one that I’ve been trying to get into for weeks now. It was really difficult.
I worked really hard, and I wasn’t sure if I could keep up my intensity Then a little inspiration… sometimes a song can be a gift. A song that reminded me of my husband came up in the playlist and it helped me to push me through:
I came home and had a nice breakfast, it’s a little different but it hit the spot:
It’s rainy and I just came back from the food store. I think my dog, Sadie has the right idea, she is snuggled into pillows and the afghan on the coach. However, she is already at her goal weight. So now it’s time to prep food for the work week.
This is just what another day on plan looks like. When you have a lot of weight to lose to get to goal I think time can be your enemy. There is a routine to my days, and I think I have created a healthy habit loop. The cue (reward) that keeps the habit going is how good I feel. Most days I have a lot of energy and am feeling stronger and more present in my life. I wouldn’t trade that feeling for an ice cream sundae. Or, at least not today.
So if you’re reading this, I hope my post finds you feeling confident and ready for the week. Remind yourself of your “why” and remember you got this! And if that’s not exactly true, fake it until you make it eventually it will stick. 🙂 more tomorrow.
