100DWL: Day 10
Thursday, February 27, 2014
I think I missed a day in the journal yesterday, but Day 10 is also about how other people can compliment you and think up an affirming response for them.
If someone notices, I usually say, "Thank you so much! This is really hard for me, but I love sparkpeople and it really works for me."
Yesterday I had a lot of work to do at my desk...dinner rolled around and still no fitness minutes AND I was behind on water, because I worked all morning with no water intake. Soooo, I threw some chicken cutlets in the oven and raced downstairs to do 10 minutes on the treadmill. Snuck in a few strength exercises throughout the day. I think the key is getting rid of the mindset that I have to do long stints of cardio. Every day, I can find ten minutes to do SOMETHING for myself.
So, it involved converting an old negative thought of "I am out of time, I can't find 45 minutes to exercise, too much left to do today." into "I will take a ten minute break and at least burn 100 calories if I can."
Day 1: 191.6
