self awareness

Monday, July 01, 2013

The last week, I have become self aware. And I am trying to stay that way. Familiarity with actual hunger is key. Trying not to eat out of boredom is key. Drinking water is key. Lots of stuff to remember. But I know that I can keep this up. I've lost almost 7lbs in one week.

This is insane. Losing 6.6lbs in one week is insanity. I haven't been to the gym or worked out ONCE.

I've been reading "The Life You Want" by Bob Greene. Lots of inspiration and great info. I think my body is finally caught up on sleep. I have been sleeping in practically every morning until 10am.

I wanted to take a bike ride with my daughters today but my stinkin' bike tire was low on air and when I go to grab my BRAND NEW tire pump, the stupid part that latches onto the tire valve friggin' broke off. I was so mad about that. So by the time I wasted time trying to fix it, it started to rain, then I was mad AND disappointed. =/

I am trying to stay active. Not gym active, but physically active cleaning, and doing activities and stuff with my kids. Going to the gym isn't gonna happen. My hubby works INSANE hours and even if I did want to go the the gym at night I'd have to go super late or wake up at 430am. And I'm not doing that. Call it laziness, lol.

I am not going to over do it and overwhelm myself with 100% change all at once. That has failed many times in the past. For now, I am focusing on food and spending time with my kids. Then, if I can get some gym time, then bonus for me! Thanks for all your support!

    You've got it... getting back into the grove slowly... being with your kids and showing them how important just staying active is.... just enjoy your summer. Glad you finally caught up on sleep, too. Congrats on the loss. emoticon

    Good plan! Being active all day counts for way more than just a couple of workouts a day, then being sedentary and eating out of boredom.. Sure fire way to get in to trouble (I should know! Yikes!) You CAN accomplish what you set your mind to with that attitude! Keep it up. Every small change counts!

    Yay You!
    7lbs- that's emoticon !
    I have read that not getting enough sleep can cause your body to hang onto weight. Maybe finally feeling caught up,helps.
    No doubt being mindful of how You feel is a big part of those lbs lost.
    I would think You could burn just as many calories running around, playing with your kids, as you could working out at the gym.
    Continued SUCCESS!
