Keep moving forward, never give up, never start over.
This is my mantra right now. I need to keep moving forward no matter how hard I stumble, I need to never give up no matter how hard it gets, and I need to never make enough excuses for myself that I need to start over. Again.
Today the gym kicked my butt. I have felt like I was dragging tush all day. I only had cardio to do today, I needed to do 50 minutes at 2.4 to get 2 miles down. Today I felt my legs burning and my breathing was out of control. I have no idea what was up, because I don't always have such a hard time, and while it is harder than 2.3, it felt like so much more today. I wanted to quit so bad! I even got off the treadmill at 25 minutes done and went to get a drink of water. I felt my resolve slipping! It was so hard to face the next 25 minutes, but I did it! I made my two miles today, and it feels really good even though I feel pretty tired out. I have my circuit tomorrow, and I want to do 25/25 and my machines. I just have to keep telling myself what I am capable of, you know, giving yourself mental pep talks? I sometimes have to talk myself into the last 10 minutes. Never give up! I will be so amazingly proud of myself if I manage to make 10 miles this week!
I let myself be talked into a latte today! Argh, but it was Splenda only, except I belive it was whole milk and I am counting it as so!
regular sushi w/o sauce: 14pts

1 nutella sandwich: 4pts

1 serving Beef and Potato Nacho Casserole: 6pts
1 cup ice cream: 3pts
15 wheat thins: 2pts
1 serving SW dip: 1pts

Eek. Not feeling as sure about this week so far, but I think I can bring it around. I need to eat more veggies again. Maybe tomorrow I will get out to the local produce stand and buy some things for a veggie medly to keep on hand.
Oh and also! How do I fight the urge to weigh myself every single day now that I am under 400? I know I shouldn't because when I do things that way I always get discouraged!
I can't let myself be discouraged!
