Trust the Process

Saturday, January 05, 2013

Trust the process. As long as you are embracing healthy habits, changes are happening within you.

My first week went fairly well with a few hiccups. I did cardio, SP videos most days. I'm trying to wake up as soon as the alarm goes off M - F and get up (huge change) and do a SP video. I'm journaling planned food the day before so there isn't any quick decisions to make. However, my weak time seems to be walking in the door after work and first choice was chips...4 days in a row...don't want that to become a streak! I need a better mindset so that does not continue! I'm utilizing my appointment tool at work for reminders to "pop up" often - are you drinking water, did you have a morning snack, are you taking a morning break walk, lunchtime, time to go workout. That is a great reminder. It's easy for time to go by at work and I haven't drank any water without this new plan. I am guilty of not taking any breaks at work which is just not smart. So stopping for an am snack is a good change and leaving my desk to take a walk is an even better idea. Just joining the HVC fitness center at work is a awesome idea. I can go walk the track 6x and be back in 15 minutes. For me to plan lunch is a HUGE change. I bring something healthy and stop/pause to enjoy...need to work on this and probably leave my desk again to take an actual lunch break. Then my final reminder before going home at 2:00 pm is go workout. So to the fitness center I go again. Just starting out with treadmill because I am finding I am out of shape! But it's all good, it's a great beginning and I'm making healthier choices! Otherwise good week, good start.
