Stamina…

This is true…

Tonight was brutal. It really was. There will be no spin class for me tomorrow morning because it’s far too late for that. I still have work to do and it’s very late for a school night. My lunch isn’t made and I am getting sick. This not self-care!

This is true…

Stretching myself beyond what I am right now to what I hope to become is difficult. I can do hard things. I accomplished a lot and I didn’t give up. This is a remarkable quality I am tenacious! Here is what I’m going to do next, am going to finish what needs to be done and then I will get some good sleep.

Sometimes the right thing to do acknowledge both sides of the same reality. I think I gained weight because I didn’t know how to manage my stress levels. There is no magic strategy but I am becoming more self aware.

Day Four Hundred-Sixteen…

Happy 16th Birthday David! We had a party tonight to celebrate our son’s special day. We had the family over and had so much fun. I am very happy to say, David felt loved and that’s what a birthday is all about.

In terms of being on plan… it was a challenging day. It began with professional development, (I was attending not facilitating) and then, of course, there was the party.  Professional development comes with an assortment of snacks. With the party? Well, lasagna and birthday cake of course.

I’m happy to say I did not have any candy, and I was very strategic about what I ate. I used very few points and “saved up” for dinner. I did really enjoy what I ate and now I just feel good.  Will I get to goal? I don’t know, I really have no idea but I hope so. I did not reach my fitness goal, I only went to spin one time this week. I did recover my points from my overindulgence from last Saturday. I am rolling over 8 SmartPoints. I have been planning and tracking.

I will let you know how I did!

 

Day Three Hundred Eighty-Five…

I didn’t make my goal of rolling over four points. I had pizza for dinner and went over. Then I had a low-fat ice-cream cone and went over even more.

Words of WisdomI know I am the kind of person who will always have to be vigilant about watching my weight. I was really disappointed about tracking the pizza, and then the cone tonight. It was upsetting to see the number go up on my app and that’s the truth. I believe tracking is a very important habit to cultivate. s what helps me to make my next move.  Tomorrow will be a better day.
