stopping the slippery slope now

Monday, December 04, 2017

In the last weeks I find that my consistency is slipping. i have not gone to the gym in about 2 weeks, and I've consistently been eating over range. Not surprisingly, the scale has gone up 3 pounds.

I know what usually happens next. I justify my less than great choices by saying I'm working long hours, then I stop tracking my food, and eventually I settle for the 2-3 pound weight gain. Before I know it, 5 pounds creep on etc etc.

So I'm stopping my usual pattern and declaring to myself that:
- I am worth working hard for my bigger goals
- Every little bit helps (one less bite, 1 more step, 1 more exercise minute)
- There's no time like the present to recommit.

My goals for tomorrow are:
- Eat within my calorie range and track my intake
-Drink 5 cups of water
- Do a 15 min yoga video

I love myself and I can do this!

    I hear you. I think winter months we crave more carbs or what I call comfort foods. You are right you are worth achieving your goals. Keep up the good fight!
