Surviving is not Living

One step at a time

That’s all any of us can do, make the decision with each step to do better and don’t step backwards.  If you do step backwards, stop where you are and go forward again. I’m guilty of making one mistake and falling into “I just can do this, I already messed up, I’m done”.

But it’s not gonna be that way anymore.

Goals from last night:

Stay very close to my caloric goal  – Accomplished. Actually, I ended up not eating anything else after I got home. I know that wasn’t the point, and I was probably too far under my calories to where my metabolism wasn’t happy with me, but I had the SS over and we ended up talking for hours. He finally saw that my eyes were glazing over and he told me to go to bed. Which brings me to the next goal.

Get into bed by 10 – It was 11, but I slept soooo good. I haven’t slept that well in awhile. It was a beautiful thing. However because I was loving sleep so much I didn’t get up to work out. And speaking of working out…

An hour of calorie burning –  Yeah, so I did really well the minute I got home. I immediately changed my clothes, put my dog on her leash, and went walking. I let her do her thing and then I set out to walk to burn calories. After about 5 minutes I was aware of how out of shape I was, and I went inside with the intention of doing more, 5 minutes at a time, and eating a little something before heading to bed.  (Only 5 minutes frustrates me, but I figure if Body By Pizza can do it and make the change that she did starting only at 5 minutes at a time, then 5 minutes it is.)

Plans changed because the SS called me and said he was downstairs and wanted to come hang out, so he came up, I did no more working out, ate nothing, and went to bed. Not a complete fail. I’ve just got to figure out how to fit it all in, with him and with my effort. I’m pretty fond of him and want him to stick around, so I will just have to figure out a schedule, and perhaps make him come along for the workout.

Today I’m already halfway to my caloric goal, so I’m gonna have to take it easy the rest of the day. I’ve got almonds as a snack. They’re higher in calories than I’d like, but they’re good calories. Yesterday, even though I stayed under my caloric goal, they were bad calories.  I’d rather go over with good than stay under with bad. Ya dig?

I forgot my water bottles. I guess I’m gonna have to go downstairs and purchase some. I drank 2 liters of water yesterday which is a pretty decent feat, but I need to make sure I stop drinking an hour before leaving the office and use the ladies room on my way out. Yesterday by the time I got back to my car at the train station I was about to lose my bladder. It wasn’t cool.

Here’s to the day!
