I am still a newbie with this band thing and NO I have not figured it all out.
Bottom line, No Barbara you do not know it all (HA .. I bet my kids are laughing at that one). SO..............
IT's BACK TO BASICS FOR ME
It all started with a taste here, a bite there, and a serving here and a slow climb on the scale. Basically what I achieved, I threw away. All that focus and discipline.
Reflection: So, I don't know what set me off course..
Sure I can come up with all of the lame excuses.. hmm the snow, the job, my "O" key popped off my laptop .. really..it did and pissed me off.. but is that all it's going to take in life to throw me off course.. PLEASE!!
Well time to suck it up buttercup.. cause the rationale me just isn't buying the excuses..
It's time for me to walk the talk "I'm Doing it for ME". I need to get the priorities straight and here's my list of 5 actions that are needed to get me back on track.
1.Move my tuchus and commit to some form of daily exercise (not marathon training just moving my ass) I'm putting the BB away after 7:00 pm.. That damn little piece of plastic distracts me from so many things including exercise.
2. Eat Right. No more depending on liquid protein drinks to fill me up. They are an easy way to get the protein in, but they are not filling.. I find in an hour or two I am ready to graze. Food selections will now include solid filling protein choices.
3. Layoff the hummus (even the lowfat stuff) it may be a good protein source but I can not resist eating this or brie without crackers.. (I don't crave the sweets, just the odd foods).
4. Track it. I know some don't need to measure and track.. I am not one of those people. My fly by onderland came the week I was using fitday.com.. obviously tracking works for me.. so I need to stick to this.
5. Celebrate my daily victories. For some reason I hold back and wait till my NSV or scale movement are huge.. no more.. I am going to celebrate the little things as well as the big.. and celebrate in ways that are being good to me, a soaking bath, a mani/pedi, a new lipstick.. and occasional bling (I am not a martyr).
So.. this post was more for me than you.. but it feels good sharing it.. putting my self on notice.. a good swift kick in the ass.. and also a count down to my next fill on the 22nd.
Have a good weekend.. hope you get to cheer your Olympic Sport/team On.. We have a hometown favorite in the women's bobsled..Newtown-native Jamie Greubel... So GO TEAM USA WOMEN'S BOBSLED
