Okay so I did a little better today. The last three days have steadily gotten closer to the 1200 calories I usually eat. I even took a walk today. Im keeping my fingers crossed that I finally have this train wreck back on track. I have been derailed since Halloween. I know that's only two weeks but in the weight loss realm that feels like a life cycle!
I find that when I think of this as a program I am on for good health I have better success. I tell myself to just work the program. Right now my program is getting out and walking every day, drinking a quart of water a day and sticking to 1200 calories. I know you're aghast that I wrote a quart but you see I live on coffee and have for years. I can go day after day without a drink of water if left to my own devices. If I could actually get 4cups of water down my body would think it was drowning. I know for you water guzzlers that is pitiful but for me its an accomplishment.
Even in the walking arena I don't put a limit on what I am suppose to do. My program is to just get out there and walk. It counts if I walk five minutes or 25 minutes. It doesn't matter. The program I made for myself says to walk every day, drink 4 glasses of water and stick with 1200 calories. Its just that simple!
I can do this!
