It’s Gonna Be a Great Week!

It’s Gonna Be a Great Week!

I woke up saying that yesterday morning. I rolled out of bed, l looked in the mirror, I smiled and said…..”It’s gonna be a great week!” 

Sometimes that’s all it takes. A little positive self talk.

Things like…..

I’ve got this.

I can do this.

I owe it to myself to be successful.

I deserve to succeed.

I will be strong.

I will make good decisions.

I will treat my body the way that it deserves to be treated.

I am in control of me.

I guess I’m feeling a little determined today to get back to my goal weight. Our meeting yesterday morning was awesome. Three people shared their success stories, and I felt a connection with each of them. It was a great motivator to not only wake up feeling as good as I did, but to then have the opportunity to go to that meeting and listen to all of those wonderful people!

I had a great day that included a 5 mile walk, and I ate light during the day, knowing I would be spending a lot of my points during the evening. We had plans with some friends to go to the Plaza Art Fair, where not only is there a lot of great art to look at, but also lots of food and beer tents to enjoy! I keep going back and forth in my head about only drinking once a week….or not drinking at all for a while….or only having one drink when I decide to have a drink….or never having another drink for the rest of my life! Okay, that’s not really going to happen, but I did enjoy beer and wine and food last night, and I have tracked it all!

I’ve got a long walk planned for today and tomorrow, and I’m working on my menu for the week!

It really is Gonna Be a Great Week!
