I made a pact with myself to do better starting this week...
Number 1, I feel better; I don't feel down in the dumps anymore, and I feel like the "weight of the world" has been lifted off me, and I feel like I'm back in control of me. So this is a good thing.
Number 2, I promised myself I would make exercise a priority again in my life. Worked out Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Golf on Wednesday, off on Thursday, back on Friday, Golf got cancelled on Saturday, but I got outside and did some gardening. Yes, it was a good week.
Number 3, I know I've got to get control of my eating. Some days were good, some days were not. But the fact that I had some good days, and not all bad ones is a step in the right direction.
Number 4, I said I would get back to tracking my fitness/nutrition. Fitness was tracked faithfully! Nutrition was tracked good on some days, and not at all on others. My first day, I saw 2000+ calories. I know that once you start to "measure" something, it starts to improve. So this one I will really focus on and work hard on this week. I have my smart phone, and I can do it from anywhere. So there's really no excuse!
So, it was a beginning. A beginning of something I want to be real. I just feel happier and more like me. It's been so dang hot down here, that I haven't even gone to the pool. But yesterday, I decided a little sun and swimming would be so good for me. So that is something, I am going to make sure I do this week.
This week, I saw a range of 157-162 in my weight, and that has got to stop. I know it's because of the junk food, that I let myself have, and that will be my number one goal this week, to get control of what I eat. I will plan my meals carefully, and track them. I don't need to eat like that, and I KNOW BETTER, so this will be a challenge, but I will work on figuring out how much I want this, and making it a priority in my life.
So, to sum it up, I will say, it was a step in the right direction!
