Another really good day
Tuesday, October 11, 2011
I think I'm back on track! Measuring and logging my food intake is so helpful to me. It keeps me focused. I had developed some good eating habits over the past year but I guess I was starting to slide back a bit into old habits. Don't they ever die? It seems they hang around waiting for you become vulnerable and then try to sneak back in your life. NOT HAPPENING!!! I wish I hadn't let any of them back but it was a learning experience. I've learned how easy it can be to slip back into those habits and watch my clothes shrink. I'm glad I stopped them now! And I will keep my eyes peeled in case they try to sneak back up on me. I like feeling healthy and looking thin. I have more energy when I eat right - more energy to exercise and do the things I enjoy.
Tomorrow I begin strength training again. I've lost some of my toning (more than I'm admitting to but I see it in the mirror) and I'm determined to get it back. Is it hard work? Damn right it is!! If it were easy everyone would be walking around with muscles and no flab. I know I have to WORK for it but it is so WORTH IT! I remember how I felt when I was more toned. I felt STRONG! I didn't jiggle as much and I liked looking at my reflection..... something I had avoided for too many years. The mirror is still my friend because it helps me see my muscles working as they were designed to work.... and after a work out they feel alive!
I want to stay on here and keep reading and commenting on blogs but I need to get rest so tomorrow I have more energy to continue my journey towards my ultimate reward - MY GOAL WEIGHT!!
Keep Sparkin' It works!
