Did it all today
Thursday, June 10, 2010
I'm going back to my WARRVESTS strategy, because if I do everything I know I'm on the right track to losing weight. The challenge is to keep it from becoming a laundry list of obligations "I gotta do." I have to realize these are things I CHOOSE to do because they keep my body operating at peak performance.
W-water. Drink three 24-oz. bottles of water. Sometimes I fill them with Crystal Light. (I hope that's not cheating!)
A - alcohol. None allowed, since it makes my resistance muscle completely go in a coma.
R - read. I have to read something everyday! My cards, or a chapter in The Spark, or the Beck diet solution. I need to connect to one of these every single day.
R - record. I must record everything I eat so I have an accurate picture of the calories I consume. If I could accurately control my calories without recording, I wouldn't be overweight.
V - vitamins. I have osteopenia, so I absolutely must take my calcium and vitamin D. I hate taking pills but oh well, take them anyway.
E - exercise. Do SOME intentional exercise every single day. Work toward jogging that 5K. Continue sessions with the Spandex Nazi as my schedule allows.
S - slow down when eating! It's not a race. When you don't get a lot of food you need to slow down and enjoy it!
T - table. Always eat at the table. No exceptions.
S - snacking. Save some calories for a sensible snack. Jello, a piece of fruit, sugar free popsicles or air-popped popcorn often do the trick.
I had a good day on track today. I read and pondered on the card, "Give yourself credit." I have forgotten to do this in a while. I also went to a Light Yoga class which was wonderful! Can't wait to go again.
