June is here! One month down!! New habits are formed and a new me emerges. I love it. I feel great and am doing great. So proud of myself.
I decided to take measurements today as the beginning of June is here. I have a very long way to go but have a great start to where I need to be.
Things I need to focus on. Giving myself new personal bests, making sure I get enough rest, keeping stress down, relishing in the good, not letting things make me sad or mad, continue to eat healthy, continue to not night snack! That is a tough one! Allow myself to not be perfect and know it is ok.
I would love to align 3 things in my life by the end of this month. I want my average BSL to be 127 or lower, my BP to be good and my weight to be a half pound under 200. All three I have met or am so close to I can see them. The weight is the hardest to do. I will be honest there. I am doing it all the correct, healthy and safe way. I feel great! And that is what is important. I feel healthier than I have in a very very long time.
This week I will allow myself to exercise as much as I feel up to doing. Some days it is more, some it is less. As long as I am DOING, I should be proud of myself. I will allow myself to take part and enjoy each and every busy day this week. So much going on. It is the last week of school for my kids. It is the last week of high school for one of them. 2 kids graduating done, one more to go! College is next for one.
This should be a fun filled fast month. Kids are around, graduation, college orientations, dorm assignments, camping vacation and a festival where I get to enjoy the tickets my kids gave me for a concert to Bruno Mars. You can bet I will be in that audience belting out the songs, feeling every moment and loving it. And knowing I am up to that day! I have been working on making myself stronger so I can enjoy that day more. Lots of walking and people. It will be a taxing day but oh so worth it. I will celebrate that day. Not just for being able to sing along with the music, but because I worked hard to get to enjoy that day. I am in no means in great shape. But I am in much better shape and will be able to enjoy so much more than I would have a month ago.
Yesterday, I had a personal best on my inside bike. 21 miles! My middle son who is NOT a hugger, said he was happy for me and came over and offered me a hug! That was better than anything. He doesn't give hugs out often. He said he was proud of me and happy for me. This, to me, meant the world.
So, starting this June...I will treat each day as day 1. Starting new and encouraging myself to be strong and healthy. Make good decisions in every moment. And be proud of my accomplishments and let others be proud of me too. I will be happy for myself. I will keep myself in check every day.
