Hmm Not so good at meeting my goals the last 8 weeks

Thursday, February 21, 2013

8 weeks ago, I listed the following as my goals:

1. Exercise 100 min a week.
2. Eat 3-5 fruits and veggies a day.
3. Make one big healthy meal a week I can freeze for lunches or dinners.

Well, I haven't done a good job at meeting these goals. I've been very inconsistent in exercise and eating vegetables. Eating veggies is an ongoing struggle. I have been good about making healthy meals at last once a week that I can eat the rest of the week. That's been pretty easy with the crock pot.

I've had difficulty staying on track with exercise because of my health and my recent loss of a kitty I had for 18 years. We put her to sleep almost 2 weeks ago. Leading up to that point, for over a month, we were battling with the decision about when it was time to let her go. This caused me to have a lot of migraines and daily headaches bordering on migraines. I'm still having the daily headaches but they are easing up some. I honestly haven't been even thinking about exercising since Pandora died. I'm letting myself grieve. She was my constant companion and a great source of joy and comfort for me. It's very hard not having her here. I will bounce back soon.

The good news is that I have lost the weight I gained over the holidays and lost a little as well.

    emoticon First, so sorry to hear about the loss of your beloved pet! They can become family members and even though they are animals, they seem to understand us better than our human friends and family.

    So, now that the horrible decision was made, instead of beating yourself up for not meeting the 3 goals that you set for yourself, think about what you have accomplished. You are meeting your 3rd goal. Give yourself a lot of credit for getting that one nailed! emoticon

    Remember small steps forward will still get you where you want to go the same that big steps will. You are still moving forward, you are still on track. So it might take a little longer. At least you did lose the holiday weight and even more. So you are further along the road than you were 2 months ago. emoticon emoticon
