Be Proud - Journaling Day 7

Tuesday, September 22, 2015

I'm feeling proud of myself today so I think you should be proud of YOURSELF too!
I bet there is something you've done recently that you can be proud of!
Be it fitness, nutrition or something beyond the realm of SparkPeople. Take a moment and figure out what's been going good in your life and see if you can take at least some of the credit!

I have been working way more than normal and have STILL managed to do a workout when I get home! And it's extra good, because I am definitely a morning workout sort of person. Got the day off tomorrow, I'm hoping a reward for recent hard work (Plateau Busting Challenge says we must reward ourselves on occasion) can be a late setting of the alarm and then a morning run! Oh! After Wednesday Weigh In of course!

I feel fine, but am not hungry tonight. I think I may be too sleepy. And also since it's weirdly humid here in MN, I got so sweaty doing Invisible Jump Rope and a YouTube HIIT workout that I drank 6 of my 8 glasses of water between 4:00 -8:00. That's a bit excessive for ME! A tiny apple, 3 dates (I heard they are high in potassium) and 1/4 cup of cottage cheese seems to be all I want. Maybe will try to down a V8 too. Sheesh. So it will be another weird day WAY UNDER for calories. I guess that should be my next goal... to get a better handle on that whole scene.

Good news. Today is the last day of the Journaling Challenge! You'll get a break from my daily yammering ;) I'll try to save the blogging for INSIGHTFUL and MOTIVATIONAL writings. (yeah right! who am I kidding!)

    You sound like you are restricting your calories. Don't. One thing we learn right away is you have to eat to lose weight. I have the Spark activity tracker & if I allowed it to set my calories in accordance to my calories burned, I would be eating 2500-2800 calories!! My regular (without the spat) is 1960-2350 cals. I don't make it up there and therefore I don't lose weight but when I do I can lose. Look at your range and try to keep within the range. See what you do when you are in range. Your journaling has been great so keep it going! We love to chat about what works for each other.

    Keep them coming. They are very motivational! I have been in a slump lately and I really need to read some of the motivational blogs.

    Have a Wonderful Week, and remember to keep moving! :D

    Spark Hugs,
