Happy to be Home…

It was a weird day. I was starving and I ate my sandwich by 9:30 in the morning! I knew that decision had potential for trouble, but the day got very busy and I managed to pace myself with the rest of my lunch. Then after a quick drop-in at Stop and Shop, I cooked some turkey chili and quinoa. It was ok, and even better than that – it was quick and easy.

The holidays are making their way closer and closer and I’m feeling it. In my mind, I imagine what I want to look like, how I want to feel, and I know that I probably won’t be there. I’m not down on myself, I’m proud of my accomplishments. I am maintaining significant weight loss, and I am not that far from Lifetime. However, part of me is bothered that I allowed myself to lose my focus and be in this position. I have to keep reminding myself that this is a process and I’m learning as I go.

Spin at 5:15 am tomorrow, so I’m off to bed. Keep positive, be happy with yourself where you are right now. I promise I’m going to try to do the same.

A Little Goal Goes a Long Way..

Accomplishing a goal feels amazing! Today I did just that – 14 days no desserts, cookies, or sweets. It feels really good to know that I set a goal and achieved it. It’s especially true when I’m working on a bigger goal – getting back to Lifetime status.

Day 14! I did it!

A little goal goes a long way. The new goal is get to bed earlier and to get activity. I didn’t do that today… but I’ll try again tomorrow. Resilience, persistence, optimism, and patients. I’ll get there.
