so, I’ve been pretty unfocused lately. I think a lot of it stems from the fact that I haven’t had a day off in a long time…I think October 10th was my last one. Stress, headaches, work, all of these things have given me a reason not to focus on myself, and basically give up on my plan.
Well, I’m putting a stop to it. I’m giving myself a giant kick in the ass, which is exactly what I need right now. I did a lot of social things last week, and while I do not regret ANY of it, it did put things into perspective for me. Jules had her birthday party on friday (happy belated!) and Lisa and I stopped by for a little bit. I was really really proud of the way I handled myself. I had 3/4 of a beer, and that’s it. No sangria, no cupcakes, no candy corn, no apples and caramel. All of it looked delicious and awesome, but I successfully avoided it.
I’ve discovered that this journey is about little milestones. Getting through my day resisting big temptations, and finding time to ENJOY exercise. That’s right, enjoy it. Not just do it because I have to, but to want to do it. This is key for me. If I am enjoying myself during an activity, I am more likeyl to repreat that activity! So, I did some wii Fit activities last night and again this morning. My favorite thing is “rhythm boxing” in the aerobics section.
So, I’m feeling kinda of amped right now. I am feeling a little bit more confident about my progress, and sticking with my goals. The biggest hurdle/temptation for me has been lunchtime. At work, I just NEED to escape during my break, and there are a lot of fast food places and restaurants around here. As long as I have a specific task in mind (like yesterday, I went to target to buy the Sugarland CD) I can be ok with it.
That’s it for now, have a great week!
