Keep on, keeping on...
Friday, February 25, 2011
February has been a long hard month with many challenges. My work hours are crazy, sometimes I can't tell where one day ends and the new day starts. When I get the chance to sleep, it takes me forever to get to sleep. Scott and my relationship had become almost non existent what with the financial strain we've had for over a year, different work schedules, health issues and very poor communication. That's the negative.
On the positive: I have managed to lose 8lbs. My clothes are fitting better and I'm starting to like who I see in the mirror. I'm keeping up with my 8-8oz of water most days, even managed 9 on a couple. Coffee is down to 3 cups a day, and actually managed to go 4 days in a row without any at all! I'm doing my strength training 6 days per week and only missed 2 since I started 3 weeks ago. I make healthy choices 95% of the time and try not to beat myself up the other 5% of the time. This past week Scott and I had a long talk about the state of our relationship and what we wanted/needed to do to get back on track. We've had a great week thus far and are both committed to making time for us and communicating with each other.
Goals for the future:
1. Continue with my new habits (stated above).
2. Work on fitting my cardio in...30 min walk 3 times a week, working up to at least 30 min a day.
3. Cut back on smoking.
4. Incorporate ME time into every day.
5. Focus on the positive...and not the negative.
So here's to keeping on one day at a time...slow and steady steps will get me to my goals :)
