I also did some track walking and then spent 15 minutes doing some stretching. While my legs didn’t feel really tired or anything from my run yesterday (really surprised here), they were a touch stiff. Have a feeling they will be more sore tomorrow (damn matrix!). Met John at Ridge street again for the usual Wednesday morning eats!
This is always such a nice post workout treat.
Had the same lunch as yesterday (yogurt,cereal ,and blueberries!)
These blueberries are good, but not as good as the ones I picked myself! Can’t wait for Friday!
John fixed me a latte for an afternoon snack, although it is getting a bit warm for that. We only have AC in the bedroom, so unless I move up there to work, I won’t be having the hot lattes much! Forgot to thaw out any meat for dinner, so ate veggie tonight!
Scrambled eggs with feta cheese – I love feta (well, I love pretty much any cheese, really). It goes really well with eggs. Delicious strawberries, too!
Not pictured are the blueberries I am snacking on as I type this post 😀
Seems there are some struggling bloggers out there with getting back on track, so thought I might post some ideas from the Beck book about getting back on track. Of course, it helps to have the book and start from step 1. I am still working through the book.
Anyhoo – here are behaviors you can do to get back into the groove:
- Acknowledge that you went off track. However, do not beat yourself up. I read too many blogs with people being way too hard on themselves. Self-loathing is just not healthy, so don’t practice it, okay?
- Recommit yourself to your plan. That list that I mentioned the other day about the reasons you want to be healthy? Read it – and if you haven’t written one out – do it now!
- Draw a line in the sand to stop whatever you are doing. Stop the binge and don’t let yourself “restart tomorrow.” Start right at this moment. (This is so key – there is a big difference between going over by 500 calories and 2500 calories).
- Get back to your scheduled eating plan. This is really important. If you happen to fall face first into donuts in the morning, don’t skip your food for the rest of the day to atone. That’s only going to keep you teetering off plan.
- Once you get back on track, think about what was the problem that got you off track and try to find another way to deal with it or give yourself another option.
Question: Are you really hard on yourself when you get off track?
