Good week last week — used My Fitness Pal each day and made the cut (under calories) all but one day. And that one day was way over — and it did not stop me from getting back on the horse. You guys know what that is — you screw up, you eat too much and you feel like “to heck with it, I might as well get crazy. I’m a loser anyway.” I had that feeling – but I acknowledged and made a decision on the spot to not accept it. So what I ate a little extra? I’m back on course.
I traveled last week too. Used to be on road trips I’d have lots of junk food to eat while I drove. That was weird – not snacking all the way to my location. I did listen to Sirius Radio, the Oprah channel who had great talk stuff playing. I heard Phil Jackson talk about Zen, Marianne Williamson talk about life and some other talk shows. I stopped for lunch when I got hungry and made conscious choices to get out of the car and eat a proper meal instead of drive through. These little steps add up.
I also went to the gym in the hotel and worked out! Randy gave me some exercises to do in the room as well. That was easier than I thought. 🙂
Today in the shower I tried some visualization. I saw myself standing in a rain shower outdoors at a cottage on the ocean. Smiling. It was enough for a start. I think tomorrow I’ll imagine myself at the ocean picking up shells and not being out of breath.
Tips of actions to take that are working for me:
- Plan my workouts the week in advance and schedule them in my calendar
- cook my lunches on Sunday for the week
- log my calories every meal
- work out at least once a week with my trainer
- and share my progress!
