Never give up

Thursday, May 20, 2021

It's so easy to let negative thoughts take over our minds and sabotage our goals. My focus is going to be on my blessings and everything that I am thankful for. I'm starting off by congratulating myself for pushing through my workout last night.

We had a different instructor and she was a good way but made the class very difficult. It's called KettleWorx and it's strength training using kettle bells. Before we started, someone in the class asked her if she was teaching multiple classes again and she replied stating this was her second and she had one more to go. I had no idea how hard she would push us but it was a good workout. When it was over, everyone commented on how hard it was, so it wasn't just me. I'm just a longs ways away from where I used to be and where I want to be. But I will get there.

I'm on day 29 of 100 Days of Weight Loss. Looking back, I find that I start off the day doing great but by the time I get home, I overeat. I know that it could be much worse but this is one thing that is keeping me from reaching my goals so I need to find another strategy. One win for me is that I'm not eating out as much as I used to. The other night I had a meeting to attend and planned to eat out before going. I had time in between work and the meeting so I went to the store. I ended up buying some chicken breast meat from the deli and ate that with a slice of cheese instead of finding a drive-thru. It was a win except that it wasn't filling enough so I ate again when I got home after the meeting. I'll just need to plan better next time.

    I am on Day 2, so I still am going strong, and hoping, no I will, stay strong. I am sure you will find a way to get thru those after work mishaps. My trouble right now is that the humidity already is making it difficult for me to get my steps in. Even hubby complained about how heavy the air is already.

    That first meme says it all: It's grateful people that are happy." ... Good work on pushing through and have a great day!
