There have to be somethings I've been doing right and well over the past two weeks of doing not great. So here they are:
1. Attending my weekly Weight Watchers meeting. It gives me something to look forward to. A co-worker just started going with me this week, so I think that's going to be a real help for me.
2. Not slipping back into my regular soda habit. I know diet soda is TERRIBLE for me too and loaded with chemicals of death. I do realize this. However, it's free of calories and for now I will continue to drink it and hope that I can gradually ween myself off of it. Baby steps, people. Baby steps.
3. Last weekend, I started planning dinners for the week. This was a super idea and really helped me (and the whole family) have something healthy and tasty to eat for dinner every night. I planned them again for this week and so far, so good.
4. Staying the Course. Every morning, I wake up and declare a fresh start.* If I screw this day up, then tomorrow is a fresh, clean one with no mistakes in it yet. Thank you, Anne Shirley.
*I'm working on getting to the point where I screw up and immediately tell myself, I'm back ontrack right this second! This does not work very well for me yet.
5. Holding onto hope and the belief that while it may take me the rest of my life, I will lose this weight, get to my goal, and not put weight back on.
My goals for the remainder of this week:
*Drink 6-8 glasses of water everyday.
*Get at least 3 30 minute (or more) workouts in before next Tuesday.
*Track, track, track, track, track. Every single little morsel that I consume.
*Plan ahead. I know I'm going out Friday night, so I will work anything I eat or drink into my weekly points.
