It looks like I'm going to be blogging almost every day for the rest of August in order to keep my One thing Challenge. I haven't ever blogged daily, so this will be a new challenge in a way too.
Work today : Crazy. I'll be working at least a couple of hours this weekend in order to not be completely behind on Monday.
Play today: Husband and I saw the movie Inception. It was like a 3D version of Chess. I liked it. Leonardo di Caprio is FINE! We shared a small popcorn and I made some adjustments with dinner to account for this. I made a salad with 5 Chick Fil A nuggets which comes to around less than 200 calories. The other movie I've seen lately is The Sorcerer's Apprentice which I really enjoyed. And I'm looking forward to seeing Eat, Pray , Love
Excited to tell ya'll about: I bought an Enell bra. It totally changes the shape of your body. Will update more after I actually do Body Combat and Body Flow Class tomorrow wearing it.
'JUST ONE THING' CHALLENGE: To find one thing at least each day that I am proud of, that I like about myself , that I see as being progress, that is a non scale victory, that shows me making an effort and if nothing else just something I am grateful for.
August 6: Started the day writing a journal entry that was my "mission statement" for the day before I ate breakfast. I didn't know this would be my "One thing" when I wrote it. Here it is " I can choose to be in the thinking , and planning, and obsessing-on-food frame of mind versus focus just on work and other things or I can be present and recognize my discomfort. I have anxiety about my husband, over his father's situation, over my weight, over the fact that my dogs have fleas, that the house needs repairs, clutter, and the car is run down. Or I can start working on the things that I can ..the house , the car, me. Chip away at it"
And I went out for iced Dunkin Donuts Coffee and picked up lunch at KFC for husbnad and overcame the impulse to buy a biscuit for me and at Dunkins overcame desire for ice cream . I'm trying to remind myself that I can not have IMPULSE food...that is my go to thought that reminds me not to get something.
