Day 32 - I miss the lake.

Tuesday, August 11, 2020

Ever since I increased my calorie intake and gave myself a little more leeway on my food options (adding in fruits, for example) I feel like I am going to screw this all up again.

I spent the last four or 5 days completely cleaning my apartment - which looks awesome now - and I know I burned some calories doing that. Lots of bending over and many trips up and down 4 flights of stairs to the dumpster. Now that that's over with I can little by little work on the stuff I have stored in bins and in the closet to get those organized, too.

What I've been missing these last few days though is Lake Mde Maka Ska (formerly Lake Calhoun). I have therapy tomorrow so I don't know if I can get up early enough to do it before then or if it'll be too hot to go after. But I love it up there and the lake is over 3 miles around. My goal is to get there at least once by the end of the week and go to into my apartment's fitness room once by the end of the week. Treadmills are so boring to me but I am going pick a show I've wanted to watch and only stream it while I'm on the treadmill so I get more incentive to go.

I haven't gone over my calories and I have been eating fruits and stuff I just feel like I'm not eating well enough or doing enough physical activity to see any progress. I know I need to incorporate an actual workout reoutine and push myself if I want to get my body toned. I'm doing the best I think I can but it has to be better than this. I have to do better.

    Look back with appreciation rather than regret for a loss that really isn't a loss.

    I get like this too, and it's really a mind trip. One thing that helps me is asking if I'm doing this for health or for the outcome, because the outcome is a point in time, and health is ongoing, and I just keep doing the best I can. It sounds like you're doing really well.

    Be kind to yourself. You seem to be doing a lot. Maybe putting what you do into some visual 'meme' that would confirm how well you are sticking to your overall program would help. If you skip giving credit where credit is due you may underestimate your progress.

    Peace and Care
