I'm feeling kind of cranky about Thursday's today. Just being honest here- I'm allowed to be honest on thursday, right? It might be PMS or it might be having to admit that I am not 20 years old anymore, but I just feel cranky this last week about eating, exercise and medicine. I hate that I need to pay attention to all three of these- but hopefully writing this out will make it better......and just like weight watchers- a new week always fills me with new determination and a little bit of excitement about being the best I can be. I did really well with my goals from last week- I walked almost every day and I did the exercise tapes- but not the entire workout because I am so out of shape that it hurts so darn bad! I think I have "hobbled" out of my bed every single day this week- I'm trying to be patient waiting for that magical day when my muscles adjust and there is not so much pain that goes along with the exercise. I just know it has to be coming along soon! I did OK with my eating- still need to focus on that sooo much. I did get veggies at the beginning of the week and chop them up for snacks, but I am out now and I need to fix that soon! I need to remember to eat slower and I still need to adjust portions more---some days I'm really good about putting more veggies on my plate than meat and carbs- but then other days I blow it by not cooking a vegetable at all.
This is a super boring post today because I was so cranky this last week that I didn't even look for new tips- it was all I could do just to concentrate on the goals I had. I didn't weigh today- I think I could have lost, but when I am already in an off mood- if the scale is up it can sabotage me so I just choose to wait till a better day. My goals for this next week:
1. Take care of myself first! I know this sounds stupid- but I have been running for work, my hubby and my mother-in-law. I've cancelled my planned exercise time twice this last week to fit in things for my Mother-In-Law and since she does not work and I do- I think the next time I will tell her that I can help her, but after I do what I already had planned. I don't think that is too unfair- do you?
2. Buy a couple of the smaller plates I was looking at the other day. Our plates are really large and I think if I started out with a smaller plate and therefore smaller portions maybe I would have more control? You know- like if I have to actually get up and refill my plate it might make me think about if I am full or not? I have a hard time leaving any food on my plate too, so maybe starting with a smaller plate will help in that area too.
Anyhow- I promise I will be in a much better mood about healthy living next week. I think the hardest part of this last week has been feeling so sore- I think when this passes I'll be back to normal and raring to go!
