I'm so proud of myself... I managed to do five workouts this week of at least 30 minutes, the last two days they were 45. So next week I'm going to aim for five days of 45 minutes. I can make this happen. I feel so much better now that I am working out again. I'm just praying that Lupus doesn't rear it's ugly head and sideline me, that's how it seems to go for me I'll do good for a little while, then I have a flare and I figure "what's the point" I start to feel sorry for myself so I try to fill the void with food. I don't know why I can't get through my thick skull that FILLING EMPTINESS WITH FOOD IS NEVER A GOOD IDEA!
My other sabotage has always been the weekend, I have the mindset that I've been good all week so I should reward myself with the weekend off from dieting or exercising! Well that's all well and good until I hop on the scale Monday AM and see that I gained back everything I lost working so hard all week. I will not let that happen again, I'm even going to try and get a workout in tomorrow. I mean I am trying to loose weight here this will be work, and if I want to see serious results I need to put in the time.
On another note, I tried something a tad different with my "Green Monster Smoothie" this morning, I added a touch of cinnamon. Wow it tasted like a whole different drink. Yum! I think that little modification will be a keeper.
