Yesterday I professed my day of change. And so yesterday decided to toss me a nice curveball that may be a great excuse to delay that change. My son came home sick from school…the school is seeing a flu epidemic of sorts. LOVELY.
Well, I did not let that curveball deter me. Oh, no…I strapped that body bugg back on my arm before falling into bed last night. I measure out my multi grain cheerios and skim milk this morning. I snuck off to Kroger while DH held down the sick fort and stocked up on Motrin, Tylenol, fresh fruit and veggies, and all of those healthier things that became a “staple” in our house in 2010.
Then I toyed with the idea of running through to grab an easy lunch, but holding true to my goals….I came home. Oh yes, I came home, put those groceries away, and then made myself a filling low calorie lunch.
And that felt like a small victory!
So then I walked/jogged on the treadmill while watching last week’s BLoser episode. One of the things Rulan said really hit home with me. To paraphrase it, basically he said that when we lose weight we gain back part of our life that we didn’t even realize we had lost.
When you lose weight you gain back a part of your life that you didn’t even realize you had lost.
Oh, how true is THAT!?!?
And, in keeping with the whole accountability thing, I want you all to know that I logged in my breakfast, lunch, and post workout snack. I have about 1100 calories left for today’s intake. Not to shabby! This easily allows me a reasonable snack between now and dinner and maybe even some fresh veggies after dinner.
Pick the day, make the change. You might find that in losing the weight you will gain back a piece of your life you hadn’t even realized you lost.
