Yesterday I did good!
And yes, I'm patting myself on the back. Stuck to my points values, even tracked it in the nutrition log (I was in the right range for calories, over in fiber, and under in fat - there is some tweaking that needs doing). I drank plenty of water, and used it as my "go-to" when I felt like munching.
I tried to do some Wii fit, but man did it make me feel old! (In reality, just exceedingly out of shape). I managed about 1 minute of basic step before twisting my ankle and popping my hip out (But I kept going, once I got my hip back in place). Really though, I'm letting it make me laugh. I won't let it stop me from doing more today, and I won't get down on myself, since that just brings me down and I stop functioning. I remember when, in 9th grade, I took my first jazz class. We did this whole section of crunches - eight in each of 10 positions, then 4, then 2, then 1. The first time I couldn't get through it, and was just laughing at how bad I was. Within a few weeks I was doing the whole thing and singing along to the music. I was in better shape when I started that jazz class than I am now, but the lesson remains. You're not good when you start something new. But you get good the more you work on it. I can't be afraid to be bad, because then I'll never get good.
