Even small success feels terrific

Saturday, September 07, 2013

Well, I had a great day yesterday. I met all four goals I set for myself yesterday. I tracked everything I ate and came in under my calorie range. I actually had to eat something else to be in my range. That was fun. I was able to do my strength training to strengthen my knee that I have been having trouble with as well as my good leg. I also managed to get on the exercise bike for 30 minutes. I had to argue with myself for a while but eventually just did it. I don't know why I give myself such trouble to do what is good for me. I made it through spark coach and drank my water.

This success has motivated me to do it again today. I am well on my way. I have already accomplished spark coach, tracking food and exercise, and I have half of my water already down. I feel good about myself and I am sure it will carry through the day.

Some determination, priority setting, and goal setting has pushed me through. I will continue to repeat this as long as I can. Tomorrow morning I will get on the scale for the first time since June and see how things really are and set a short term weight goal. I have already had breakfast and I like to weigh before breakfast.

I have a challenge today. I have to go out of town for a seminar. I am packing my dinner rather than going out. I should be good as long as I do not stray from my plan. Look for another success tomorrow.

I am going to take this one moment at time. One day at a time.

    Great job yesterday! Staying on track that day is the hardest, I find. Good luck with your seminar plans!
