Yep, there it is. I gained this week. I expected it. You know how much I’ve been struggling the past few weeks. I was dreading going to the meeting. I was just not in the mood. My husband reminded me that I NEEDED the meeting. He was right.
The meeting topic was “Get happy!” and it totally worked for me! At some point during the meeting, I found myself relaxing and smiling and laughing with the other members who get it and share some of my same struggles and goals. I even made a new friend and ended up talking with her for 30-45 minutes after the meeting. I came home with a completely different attitude. I feel totally in control and I am wondering what the big deal has been the past few weeks. Stick to your points, Tanya. That’s all you have to do. Piece of cake. Or not. Piece of watermelon? That sounds better.
Anyway, I’d like to tell you how many points I used last week, but I don’t really know. I stopped tracking a few days because I really didn’t WANT to know. I can tell you that it was BAD. I was WAY over and didn’t even care, at least until the next day. The next day, I always wished I had made different choices. This week I’m going to try to think about how I want to feel the next day BEFORE I eat something. If eating will not help me feel the way I want to feel the following day, I shouldn’t be having it. That’s the bottom line. I want to feel better. To feel better, I need to choose better.
I can proudly tell you that I earned 29 activity points last week! I did trail running with a group, a 6 mile run on Saturday, and a treadmill run last night. I also did lots of grocery shopping and meal prepping, so I wasn’t sitting all that much. You’d think that would result in a big loss. Like I said, it was a BAD week for eating. 😉
My main goal for this week is to keep up the positive attitude that I have right now. When I am feeling this positive, everything seems easier. Of course I want to lose weight, run 3 times, and complete 2 sessions of strength training, but my attitude needs to be my main focus. With the right attitude, everything else will come. I know what to do and how to do it when my head is on straight.
Do you have a goal this week? Share it in the comments so we can cheer you on!
