Feeling better (again)
Saturday, January 10, 2015
So I've worked on staying focused over these last couple of weeks. I have made the decision to work out every day (some days the decision was tougher than others!). I have tracked calories every day and stayed in range. I have made good decisions with my eating which makes me feel more like I'm in control. That's good!
I am feeling stronger and healthier. I got my Fitbit One and have found it to be a motivating tool to keep me moving. I think some of it is subconscious. I feel tired and think I'll sit for a minute but then decide to do one more thing. Getting more accomplished and I feel like I'm building some stamina. The wellness coach has been more helpful than I had anticipated and has given me some good input. My first "senior" aerobics is this Friday. Now, I'm wishing I had not signed up. The anticipation is tough for me and I haven't done classes in forever. It's good for me to push myself to do this--I think it will be more motivation for me.
So things are going well right now and I am happy.
I need to work on my negative self talk. I "hear" myself saying--you've done this before; this is the romance stage, you'll hit disillusionment and all of this will end. You haven't lost any weight and kept it off in the 6 years you've belonged to SP. Why do you think you can do it this time? And, on and on. I need to stop this! This time can be different and I have to make it so. I cannot look at one more picture of my fat belly and cannot continue feeling sluggish and tired! So 2 weeks in and it's good. How will it be if I hit that wall again?
Anyway, on family news. My DIL is due one week from today!!! She has had some blood pressure issues but the doctor is monitoring and not concerned. She is still working (teaching high school) but this, obviously, is her last week. So, we're waiting.
My son is over the moon to be a daddy and he'll be a great one!! I'll let you know when our new one gets here. Can't wait to meet him/her!
