The Year of Living Better - Day 7

Monday, July 21, 2014

As Mondays go this one wasn't too bad at all. Down 4 lbs when I stepped on the scale this morning (better than I expected)! Over the weekend, while I kept up my exercise streak, my eating wasn't exactly spot on. I'm not feeling bad about the weekend. I don't feel like I "screwed up" or fell off the wagon. I own the choices I am making. I did slip up and find myself eating in front of the tv twice over the weekend. Not eating in front of the television is something I feel very strongly about. I may choose to eat a whole cake for dinner, and if I do, I better dang well be sitting at the table so I can really savor it and so I can be conscious-eating, not mindless-eating.

My mom called and sounded a little more upbeat tonight. If all goes well she should be closing on her condo Wednesday (prayers appreciated)!

I feel great about my first week and every day believe with more certainty that I am ready to follow through on this commitment to finally become fit and healthy.

Hope you all are having a great start to the week!

Be a "DOer"!
