Okay, so it didn't work out this morning. I'm in the habit of hitting my alarm clock three times every morning, and this morning was no exception. I'll jog when I get home from work. I promise!!!
But there is good news regarding breakfast and lunch. I made good choices today, a granola bar for breakfast and a grilled chicken wrap at lunch. Not a french fry in sight! I also haven't had a coke today, which is an accomplishment since I usually drink 3 each day. (I know, that's horrible!) So you see, my big plan is still on track.
I'm feeling a little down today. A little depressed. I can't figure out why.
It's sugar withdrawal, from not drinking the cokes. Even if you drink diet soda (and I hope you don't, it's awful for you), the sweetner become addictive, and stopping will alter your mood.ReplyDelete
Do you like cranberry juice? If you can drink a few glasses of that a day, it helps your metatolism, and will also lift your mood.
If you have soemthing citrus-scented on your desk (an orange or a citrus-scented candle) -- that scent is also a mood lifter.
You don't know me at all - I just got your link off two other blogs and enjoy reading yours - but good luck on your fitness plan! And hang in - it is so hard, at first, but I've been doing the fitness thing about a year, and it is the most incredibly feeling to fit into size 12 and 14 after being a W and XL - and to send the W and XL sizes to goodwill. I would recommend you take it very slowly, don't get impatient, schedule in a 'cheat day' every week so you don't miss desserts too much, and just enjoy your life as it goes on - a pound a week is a reasonable number - it feels very, very slow, but after a year, it will feel incredibly good.ReplyDelete
