I don't know why
Friday, January 24, 2020
I can't account for whatever it is that once in awhile kicks my motivation button into ON. Was it looking at BEAGLEGIRL's inspiring page? Was it getting fed up with my unbudging scale in spite of eating well this week? Was it a favorite pair of jeans that oughtn't be snug? Who knows? Whatever it was, I do know this about myself, that I will on occasion go into motivation mode, and it's great while it lasts. The trick is to let it become habit and not an isolated occurrence.
Anyway, this morning the scale actually said 1 lb down, and I'm determined to keep it going in the right direction. I had overnight oat bran for breakfast and packed fruit, veggies, and seafood salad for lunch. For dinner, we still have some of the delicious pumpkin curry soup I made earlier this week; we top it with raw sunflower seeds instead of crackers or croutons. I packed my healthy lunch instead of planning to order out with my department.
I've done fairly well on steps this week considering how busy we are at work. It'll stay super busy for a few more weeks and then settle into normal busy. Maybe I'll get caught up?
Sleep not so good. I had a coughing fit at bedtime last night, didn't sleep well at all the first part of the night, and of course, when I really got into some good deep sleep, it was time to get up. I think a nap is in my weekend plans; I just haven't slept well this week.
Stay motivated, Sableness, and enjoy every moment.
