Phew I fell, but i got up!

Wednesday, March 11, 2009

I have made so many positive changes in this journey. It is so amazing how much i have changed in just a couple of weeks. I fell today, but I picked myself up, brushed myself off and gave myself a hug.

This morning I got up at 6. Had my Kashi cereal, blueberries and skim milk.
mid morning fiber one bar
lunch burger with a 6 oz, peice of cheese, no bread, half a baked sweet potato dry.
OK now is where i get shakey. 14 chips. Then i put them away and saw that I did not eat a full serving, and I was ok with that. I did not open the bag back up for 4 more chips. Later. I had 2 oreos. and a skinny cow fudgicle. Help. Then i had a huge salad with 3 oz of turkey breast on it. low cal cains dressing.
I did not want to go to the gym. I only have 4 days left to the challenge. Just feeling funky.

I made myself go to the gym at 5:45. I worked out on the cross ramp for one hour and kicked butt. I burned 750 calories. My body was soaking wet and i beat the inner beast! I treated myself to a saunna. I came home and had an apple and I am so ready for bed.

I did not let my sabotaging self sabotage today. And to prove the point that i am not giving up, I signed up for a 4 week april challenge. I am doing this. One day at a time.
I can do this and I will not let myself sabotage myself.

    I am so proud of you! It is hard to stop the madness mid-stride and get back on track. But you did it and now you feel great for accomplishing so many good things: got in your exercise, stopped the overeating, and started a new positive behavior - the new challenge. Sounds like you also called Amy to get some immediate cheering which is exactly what you needed to do!


    You are a hero!

    More nonscale accomplishments. Thanks for calling and sharing your frustrations and your successes. I am really proud of you for picking yourself up and remembering to hug yourself. And if I haven't said it before you are a big part of my motivation and I have realized this week that I need you near me to keep moving. :) Love ya!
