one extreme to the next
Monday, January 04, 2010
Have you ever felt like this? A dried up creek? You know what I mean, you just did not drink your 8 glasses of water.
Well yesterday I was at 6 glasses. I heated up my water to have some herbal tea before bed. Then I got distracted and did not get to drink my tea. Actually, I just left the hot water in the microwave and did not even make it.
Last night in my slumber I stretch. YOWWWWWWWWWWWW Big muscle cramp. The culprit, not hydrated enough.. Man it hurt. BTW if that ever happens to you, if you drink seltzer water with quinine in it, the cramps will be gone in minutes. MAGIC! not the best taste, but no pain.
Today I am on glass number 10 of water and it is 1 pm. I feel like this!!!
I notice that it is hard for me not to jump from one extreme to the next. I went from not exercising last to january. To working out an average of 6 times a week. Now I average 3-5 times a week. I found the balance. It is part of my life.
I am struggle with journaling. So I am giving myself a 100 day journal challenge. I will journal my foods for 100 days. From where I am now, that is extreme, but I am hoping with some time, just like exercising, I will find a balance that works for me.
I acknowledge that journaling is a huge weakness and that if I can get my portion distortion under control I will continue along with my weight loss journey. If I can come to realize that
wine is not free because I exercise.
The calories still count. I will reach my goals sooner! I have made it through 3 complete days of journaling. Today is day 4!
Do you ever go from one extreme to the next?
