Fine Tuning is Fine
Wednesday, January 23, 2019
My original goal was to weigh once a week but I'm changing my mind about that. Fine tuning is fine! It's okay to be flexible. As a matter of fact, flexibility is something I hope to gain a lot more of. I'm going to weigh every day or close to it. It keeps me more accountable and gives me a better picture overall. A week is too long. That gives me too much room to justify. 221.9 this morning. I'll take the ounce. I'm ready to leave the triple 2's. I did my exercise this morning. It's only 30 minutes or so of stretching followed by five minutes on the rebounder but I foresee expanding this in the future. The more important thing right now is to cultivate the habit of exercising first thing in the morning before anything else can get in the way. 'Cause things do that. I think I need to cultivate an evening fitness time also. Because honestly, the biggest hurdle to my success is what happens between 6 and 10 at night. That's when I suddenly think that despite the previous 12 hours in which I ate carefully, tracked religiously and felt good physically and emotionally, that it's okay to munch trail mix from the bag without tracking it or sneak a donut from the cupboard. That recreational eating is really the only hurdle I face and yet it's a pattern I keep repeating, despite knowing the consequences. So, I really need to do something to bust that pattern. Maybe throwing in a fitness hour at 7 or 8 will help. I'm going to try it.
I ate breakfast this morning again. Progress.
