habits – The Shrinking Jeans of Thea


January 27, 2010 By thea

I feel pretty good about myself, thankyouverymuch.

Despite spending last week in Disney World (and subsequent confessions), I weigh LESS than I did two weeks ago. I seriously couldn’t ask for much more than that.

Besides doing my best to stay on top of my goals (although I had a few slip ups last week), exercise is definitely becoming a more routine part of my life. On top of the running, I’m throwing in some yoga every once in a while and I’ve also started doing the Hundred Push Ups program again.

Is it wrong to see something as a necessary evil yet kinda enjoy it all at the same time?

Another thing that has helped? I’m getting more sleep. Thanks to my husband (I should probably write a post on that), I am in bed before midnight every night now. That makes such a huge difference in how I feel every day.

Anywho, this weeks weigh in puts me at 4 weeks on my maintenance ticker (see it over there on the right? I thought a butterfly was fitting).

One month down. Eleven to go.

Bring it.

This is my first official True Confessions.  I hope I don’t get too many Hail Mary’s…

  • We ate twice this weekend.  Both times involved me ordering something with heavy sauces, chicken tenders, and french fries.
  • I haven’t been keeping up with my Progress Chart on my personal site.
  • Today is the first time in 5 days that I’ve done the Wii Active.  Thankfully, it was kind to me.
  • I could’ve come in under 35 minutes on my 5k this weekend if I had walked for a mere 30 seconds less.  Kicking myself for that one.
  • One of the aforementioned chicken tenders meals was followed by a Peanut Butter Cream Pie chaser.  I did not share.
  • I’m falling back into the “eating after 9pm” habit.  Bad Thea.
  • I’m also not tracking.  Badder Thea.

I really need to stop having “Just one of those weeks” weeks!

Don’t you find it amazing how one day of slacking off becomes one week?

My sister and niece were here last week visiting and as my progress proves, I didn’t do so hot.

O.K. I did like crap.

But I’m back. I journaled everything today (even the 12 piece nuggets from Chick-Fil-A).

My WW leader said something a while ago that rang true today while I was reaching for a second helping of dinner.

If a lapse becomes a relapse, stop it before you collapse.

Or something.

The point is, I’m not going to let last week derail my efforts. I’m back in the saddle again, ya’ll.

And now I have Aerosmith stuck in my head.

(Walks away singing “I’m back! I’m back in the saddle again…”)
