1. Get to 7 Burpees (Done)
2. Lemon water and veggie juice daily (the lemon water I sometimes forget, but I get it almost daily)
3. Adam to bed earlier (well, I PUT him in bed earlier. He just chooses to stay up until after 11pm)
4. Email myself an list of "10 things I like about myself" and "10 things I'm grateful for"
The last one is where I sucked up. I wrote the lists just once. I have a really hard time finding things I like about myself that don't have to do, directly, with my son. Really think about it, do you think you can make a list of 10 things you love about yourself, every day?? Without repeating???? I couldn't even go 2 days.
I've also come to realize that there is a person in my life who is really negative. I didn't ever really notice it until recently. For example, when I announce, excitedly, how much weight I've lost, this person says "well, if you cut back on your portions, you'll lose more." Not, "good job" or "congratulations." It's really hurtful. I really am working my ass off (literally) and that's all I get? It's very frustrating because this person is very important and I don't know what, if anything, I can say to change it. I'm just rolling with it for right now.
Overall, I think this week was a good week. I made some good decisions. Like the night my family had brownie sundaes for dinner. I had a roast chicken sandwich. I'm not perfect, by any stretch. I just think I'm making better decisions. I really love Bojangles chicken biscuits for breakfast. I used to go through the drive thru on my way to work and get 2 chicken biscuits and a large Mt. Dew every morning on my way to work. Talk about trying to kill myself! Anyway, I haven't stopped there in a LONG time. But, this week, twice, I was DYING to stop. I didn't. I applaud myself for not stopping. I don't have a scale at home, it's at work for the "Biggest Loser" competition. I think that's good, too because otherwise I'd be weighing myself every day, trying to see if I pooped enough.
I've got a couple goals for this week, I'll post them after I write them out. Probably Monday or Tuesday. Any suggestions for goals??
