Gotta Get Control!
Tuesday, November 22, 2016
Each day that's gone by recently I've thought "I'll start tomorrow". What the heck? That's not me! Get it together, girl! STOP WITH THE SUGAR! It gives me headaches, you'd think that'd keep me away, but the last 2 weeks it has not. Argh. I haven't worked out in...gosh, 2 months? I know I've lost a lot of muscle tone that I had gotten from running and working out all summer. I'm definitely pudgier even though the scale is staying the same. Not cool! Today is a new day and I MUST workout today. I'm going to start T25 today. I really need to get back into the regular routine of working out every day, even if on 'rest' days it's just a walk. I've used excuses for too long: my treadmill is broke, I can't run outside because ______,...valid excuses for not doing those activities, but not valid excuses for not working out. I have enough DVD's, plus YouTube and SP, so there are a plethora of workouts I CAN be doing, right in my living room at any time of day or night. Now that it's the season of comfort food and big thick clothes, it's way too easy to settle in and be lazy. Not me! I need to remember that I'm happiest when I'm ACTIVE! So, I need to promise you right now that I will NOT eat any more of that cashew crunch on the counter. I WILL workout today. I am already dressed in my workout clothes and ate breakfast and am drinking my water. I CAN do this.
Today: do Day 1 of T25, make a healthy dinner (roasting a whole chicken and veggies)
This week: No sugar, low to no gluten
By Christmas: Lose 8 lbs
By NY's day: Lose 10 lbs
This means throughout the holiday season I need to stay vigilant about what I put into my body and staying active. In a season where it's 'normal' for people to gain 10 pounds, I want to lose 10 pounds. I CAN do it but it will be hard. I have been trying to lose this last pesky 10 pounds for years. I need to just stick to it, though. Wish me luck!
We CAN do it!
