Day Twenty Two - I can do better

Happy 4th of July! Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. I stuck to my plan of early morning exercise and ate pretty well too today. Now I just have to figure out what to do with the rest of the week. Vacation is great, but the lack of schedule kills me. I have 6 days left to lose about 9 lbs. Can it be done? Can I exercise enough? Can I stop snacking on crap at night? Can I do it without someone telling me to? Can I push myself to my limit without Brent this week?

I was looking at my sad post-its that need to be redone since being windblown, and I was thinking about my commitment to this goal. Am I committed? Yes. Can I do a better job? Yes.

Its hard. Its hard when Im here at home by myself. No one is here to see what I eat, no one is looking, no one has to know what goes on. Obviously the scale tells all my lonely secrets, but through out the day there really is not one single thing to stop me from devouring my entire fridge. I guess I could walk more, read more, sleep more, do anything to stop. But to catch yourself in that moment and say hey knock it off, is sooo hard when that jar of peanut butter looks sooo good after a day of lettuce and meat.

Moral of the story is: I can do better, I can try harder. I can move more and eat less.

  1. Yes you can. You've proven that. Now, you have to prove it to yourself again every time a new challenge in life comes up! And eventually, each challenge will be easier. I really am so very proud of you!
