The day is not over yet, and I did not hit every goal, but I’m considering today a success!
Part of what I’m learning from my life coach is to focus on the positive and what I did right, and let go of beating myself up and ruminating over my flaws.
Today I got up early and meditated, like I wanted to. I then fell back asleep, so I missed my am walk, but I learned a lesson that I need to get up and walk first, and then meditate, once I’m more awake!
Today I am so far under my calorie goal, and I’m working hard to not eat anything else this evening.
Today I did take my evening walk with the puppy, as planned.
Today was a good day.
Carbs are not on point yet, but much lower than yesterday. Protein was good, though!
Water is something I knew I needed to work on, so that’s why I decided to include it on my daily goals. I only had 32oz of water today, but, I can have at least 8oz more tonight. But, I am working on it, tracking it, and I will do better.
This was also my first day back to work after my staycation last week. Given that, I’m even happier with the good choices and progress I made today.
I’m feeling good about my mindset, which is the biggest struggle in my opinion.
I also am super pumped that I’m adjusting my focus and my thoughts. I’m actively working on replacing all the negative self talk with learning to be kinder to myself. I’m on a journey of learning to love myself- mind, body, and spirit.
This is so new to me, but I think it’s going to make all the difference. I think loving myself has been the missing link all this time. Taking care of your health and body are acts of self-love.
I was so self-loathing, it’s no wonder I couldn’t sustain change. I was working on one aspect, while ignoring the giant mountain in my way.
I’m a little nervous about my journey, but I’m really excited to see how far I can go.
