I woke up knowing that yesterday had to be a really good day. I needed to make healthy choices. I needed to exercise. I needed to eat whole foods. I needed to makes good choices so that I could feel good. I did just what I needed to do and went to bed feeling great. The rest of the week will be great too.
I had so much to talk about in yesterday’s post, I didn’t mention how my WW meeting went on Friday. I did not weigh in. That number can jack with my mood sometimes, and I didn’t want to go into the weekend feeling cranky. I will weigh on Friday.
In our meeting last week, we discussed a “good week” and a “bad week”, or a “good day” and a “bad day” in our WW world, and what that means to us. It meant so many different things for so many different people.
For me, a “good day” is when I’ve stayed within my points, ate a well balanced menu, drank my water and exercised. A “good week” for me is all of those same things, for 7 days, and completing any goals that I had set for myself. A “good week” leaves me feeling successful, satisfied, in control, happy and confident.
For me, a “bad day” is when I don’t eat a well balanced menu, I don’t plan, I make excuses for not exercising if I had planned to, I forget to drink all of my water, and I eat more points than I should have. Those days leave me feeling like I have failed my body. Three “bad days” out of a week, can leave me mentally feeling like I’ve had a “bad week”, even though I have learned to get right back on track.
I take something away from every meeting, and that subject matter was spot on for me. In my mind, I did have a “bad week” last week. I was looking forward to my meeting because the support there is always so great, The members in my meeting have an overall positive frame of mind and attitude, they have a sense of humor, they have great advice and the positive vibe in the meeting is contagious. At my meetings, I am reminded how far I have come, that I am a work in progress and that I am a healthy person. Not going to a meeting after a “bad week” could easily lead to another “bad week”, and another “bad week”, and I made the decision a long time ago, that I would never let that happen.
It was a “bad week”, and that’s all that it was.
Yesterday was one of those “good days” and I feel great about it and the rest of the week.
I hope today is a “good day” for you in your health and your happiness!
