I’m feeling very motivated on this particular Monday morning. Perhaps it’s because I got back on Pinterest and read a bunch of weight loss success stories yesterday. Or maybe it’s because I saw another good number on the scale this morning.
It’s probably a combination of all those things and more:
- I’m getting really good at saying no to food that isn’t worth it. On Sunday I went to visit my mom to vent about things bothering me. I was really upset and stressed. She felt bad so she offered me ice cream. My response? “No, that won’t solve anything.” Gold star, Mary.
- Lots of movement. I’ve yet to bring back hardcore exercise (I miss the endorphins) but I’ve been moving a lot more lately. This mornings workout – dancing! Lots of walking, even more dancing. Both of these make me pretty happy.
- Leftovers from last night are already making their way into my lunchbox. Having a healthy meal already done for the workday is really nice. It’s one of the reasons I love using a slow cooker – multiple meals throughout the week!
It’s going to be a great week for me. How about you?
