Feb 3 - weighed in today ever hopeful that the scale #'s would have moved more drastically....alas for me not - only one pound since last weeK!! But I guess a pound is a pound -right?!
Have had a "good' week in terms of proper eating..not yet back at the workouts because of my cold but I will next week.

November 29:
Enough of the self pity!!!! yada yada yada...
-I need to get out of that place and stop caving to the sly and insidious ways the devil has created to tempt me to stop being motivated. I have been thrown off my new regimines by this self pitying talk and have replaced good practices with laziness and eating poorly and then feeling guilty all the time.

----------------- POSITIVE PLANS OF ACTION-------------------
What to do:
1)Plan my afternoon and evening meals to increase protein and vegetable daily (ie.have legumes & beans)
2)I also need to focus on my original goal to get out of the final phases of obese BMI range.

Ideas for getting motivated again:
Exercise -
1) start running or walking on off training days
Nutrition -
1) have cut up veggies in fridge at all times
2) decide on a source of protein for dinner each day and stick to it.
3) buy a box of protein bars (this could serve as substitute when all else fails)
4) have a fallback plan for times when I have screwed up - idea: go for a walk or call a friend
