Night Owls & Early Birds…

Night Owl, that is the name of my ring tone. It’s kind of a funny name for an early morning alarm, now that I think of it. Early morning means 4:20 am this morning. Wake up! it burst open into the quiet dark, I rolled over, sheets twisted around my torso and tapped it to silence. Darkness and silence filled the void again and I thought quickly, Just get up…

I went to spin class before work today and (to me) it was so worth the early morning wake up. Activity helps me to maintain weight loss and it also just makes me feel good. What activity makes you feel good? Think about it and try to figure out a way to make that activity part of your life. If you’re not sure, make a goal to try out different activities until you find something you really like.

Believe in Yourself…

I’m reflecting on my progress with goal setting. Last week was to focus on mindfulness and it was an up and down kind of week. There were some successes and some failures. I’m just trying to sort it out – trying to learn. So far all I really know for sure is that maintaining weight loss can be very hard some days.

I’m feeling ok, I woke up with a headache and missed my weekly WW workshop and that’s a real bummer for me. I love going and touching base with my people. Part of being a WW member means you’ve got people, how cool is that? If you’re reading this post, you’re my people too, and I am yours – together we can think of ways to make this lifestyle thing work.

I am in week four of weekly goal setting. Here is how that’s looking:

  • Week 1: crash and burn setting a goal to rollover points did not work.
  • Week 2: huge success setting a goal to reinforce night time rituals was a big win for me.
  • Week 3: Fresh Start thinking (practice mindful choices) was up and down as I said earlier.

My goal this week is to get some activity each day. I feel better when I’m active. That helps me to stay focused on plan and to be successful. I went to the gym today, and walked the dog:

I hope you did something that makes you feel good today. Believe that you can do this, because you can. Keep the faith and keep it moving along.
