Trying to Stay Positive - Day 6 of the Diva's Re-Spark
Tuesday, May 30, 2017
So, I lost 2lbs! Yay! I'm not sure how I managed it, but I'm sure it was because I was a lot more active this weekend. I've been in the theatre pretty much all weekend and did A LOT of walking around, lifting things and had a great time. It was exhausting, but it was lovely to paint sets, etc. My next rehearsal is tomorrow at 11pm, yes, you read that right and it's a long story. Either way, I'm feeling a lot more confident that I can start to get the weight off. My goal for this entire journey is to be mindful of my eating and not obsess. Mindfulness, not obsession.
In my previous weight loss journey, I’d weigh in on Fridays and blow my entire program due to not having the same structure and more sporadic meal times the weekends tend to bring. To me, Monday is a better day to weigh in and will set the tone for the week. Hopefully it’ll keep me on track and put some fire under my behind. Beginning next week, Monday will be the day.
I know that I’m coming up on my 1 week experiment to track food, but I think I need to make it 2 to really get an understanding of my intake. Also, to be honest, I’m just not mentally ready to stick to a strict plan. I’m extremely afraid of becoming obsessed and beating myself up because I went over my calorie limit for the day. I’ll play it by ear and do the best I can. For once, I feel like I can actually do this.
I applied for a 1 bedroom for my cat Reno and I this past Friday. Will hear more tomorrow from the owner. I hope we get accepted. My credit isn’t the best because of student loans, but I won’t give up. My dream is to have a nice, decent apartment for me and my little girl to live/thrive. We’ll see what happens!
Until next time!
