Hump Day

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Today was known as hump day during my working life, now it's known as "oops, the laundry isn't done yet this week" day!

  


9 WEEKS!

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

I've been maintaining for 9 weeks now. Hard to believe. I've never maintained for more than a minute before...this time is truly different and I LOVE it.

Yes, it's hard work. But oh oh oh is it ever worth it! I have all these new clothes, they all fit...they keep fitting...I don't have to wonder what will fit when I go to my closet in the morning!

Thank you SparkPeople. Thank you SparkFriends.

Cheers,
Sandi

I'm still sick with the flu, but today I'm going to exercise again, as I did yesterday. Just a bit...not too much....and I'm going to make some chicken soup.

    I hope you are feeling better. If you have the flu, it is best to stay in bed and drink fluids, and homemade chicken soup, rather than worry about exercise.

    You should just take care of yourself and get some rest. It is more important to get better then worrying about exercising, The chicken soup idea is good. Get better soon and take care.

Monday...again.

Monday, January 28, 2013

Honesty.

Honesty.

Honesty.

I used to think perhaps determination was most important, or tenacity, or some magical food mix/additive, or fibre, etc. But now I believe honesty with self is the single most important key to successful maintenance. It's Monday. Before, Monday would have brought with it feelings of worthlessness, anxiety, sadness b/c I'd be up 4 - 6 pounds over the weekend. But not now. Why not I asked myself? Because of honesty with myself. What do I really want? How much do I really eat? Did I make healthy food choices? Did I control my portions? How much do I really exercise? Yep, honesty with myself...no trickery, no sneakiness, no deprivation...just honesty.

    Honesty is necessary as it forces you to be accountable for your choices. Hope this Monday goes well for you.

Yep, this time is definitely different than ever before...I'm going down again, and I DID NOT overeat at dinner tonight, even though I cooked for company...

Yay!
