Stick to the Plan…

I ate the lunch I brought to work today, rather than ordering out. Everyone got takeout and I decided to stick to the plan and I feel really good about my decision. On WW you really can eat whatever you want (in moderation of course) but today, I just wanted the food I brought with me and that really makes me happy.

Learning how to say no is a powerful thing. Here is a tip, the next time your on the fence about eating something, it’s not your favorite, or you really aren’t sure that you want it… try saying “No thank you.” Then don’t say anything more, you don’t have to explain why, or go into detail, and see how that feels.

For me it feels like confidence and empowerment! The truth is sometimes on my weight loss journey I really need to feel that way.

Feeling Fit…

I’ve been on track with my fitness goal this week. and I notice that I’m feeling fit. I feel agile, I have lots of energy, and my posture seems better. I have good control over my breath and when I raise my heart rate during very challenging parts of my workouts, I can bring it back down. This is very neat, because lowering my heart rate is a work in progress.

It’s easy to take progress for granted. It’s easy to get down on my failures. I think for today, I just want to celebrate what is going well. I’m feeling healthy and fit today- it’s really nice to feel this way.
