Good Days and Bad Days

I took the opportunity today to really examine where my head is at. I know that I've felt rather stalled both in my weight loss, but also in my thoughts and feelings about it. I've been looking for a big action or event to act as a catalyst to get this back, but today I realized that life really is not about big events or life changing moments. Real life is about every moment. I don't need to gain 5lbs to know that slacking on my effort isn't going to get me to my goals. On the flip side I don't need to loose a milestone amount of weight to know that I am making good choices and that I am moving towards my goal. Some days I will have more motivation than others. The days where my motivation is not there I am going to have to try harder to make good decisions. It's not rocket science, and its not even that complicated, but lets be honest that does make it easy.

Today I made the most of the motivation that came naturally and I did my best to focus on each choice that I had. Today the motivation was there which is a good thing because it was grocery shopping day. If you think making good meal choices is hard on a low motivation day, just try making meal choices for a week.

I am also thinking about my exercise options and I may consider a membership to the gym where my sister works out even though it is 40 minutes away. I will have access to the location that is local to me, but I am thinking that her weekly spin class might be worth the drive. 

Tonight's Dinner - Honey Lime chicken, sugar snap peas, and a spinach salad.

  1. That dinner looks DELISH!!! That's a bear. But you're right, don't wait to celebrate the huge losses. Just know that you're on the right track, it'll come. I like to think of like a train. Yes, slow to get moving at first. But once you get it going, it's hard to stop.
