Song of the day: Jesse J - Price Tag ft. B.O.B.
I can't believe it's day 100. I guess I can't really say that I "stuck with it" for 100 days, but I've been conscious of what I'm doing for 100 days. I had every intention of starting to get back into it this week, and my eating has reflected that. Unfortunately, I am sporting this awesome seasonal allergy head cold and have stuffed ears and a stuffy nose. I thought that maybe I could work out, but everything just makes me dizzy, probably due to my stuffed ears throwing off my balance.
I'm definitely not where I was hoping I would be at this point. I was hoping to be about another 15 lbs further than I am. I really need to remember why I want to lose weight. I want to look better, feel better, and just be better. I don't want to have weight related health issues later in life. I want to be someone that I can be proud of.
I need to restart this commitment not just jump back into it. When I first started I was going slow, just trying to drink 8 glasses of water and get 30 minutes of cardio 3 times a week. That's what I need to do again. I need to stop trying to look at the big picture and just look at each day. My goals for this week are to drink 8 glasses of water a day, and go on a 30 minute walk with Elliot 3 times this week (today being number 1). Easy, doable, maintainable, and something that I can add onto.
I also think that part of what's hindering my getting back into working out and eating healthy is that our house still isn't organized. Not everything has a place and it really does effect how I'm feeling. I don't even know where I want to put everything and that's the problem. We had a fireplace mantle that held all of the photo albums and frames and now I don't know what to do with those things. I know that I just need to buckle down and do it, but I just don't feel like it. I have a problem with finishing things, but I always feel so much better when I do. Okay, to add to my goals for today I am going to hang up our frames, and order pictures for the frames that need them. Now to be my own motivation!
