Just 1 Thing--week 2
Week 2 of the Just 1 Thing Consistency Challenge
Thanks to Loretta for coming up with a simple challenge.
PRODUCE POWERFUL RESULTS!
My CHALLENGE is the mental / emotional aspect of the journey: keeping positive, recognizing my effort, recognizing progress in the little things, being mindful, staying balanced, staying hopeful, and trusting myself.
My 1 Thing: 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.
This journey is Mind-Body-Spirit and when I don't pay attention to all of that ...well, things get off track.... the mind and body need proper maintenance if I want to keep them running smoothly.
Week 2 Monday August 9 to Sunday August 15
Mon Aug 9--a dark day here at Pj Geek Hacienda--I folded laundry and did a killer weight training session.
Tues Aug 10--an even darker day . I wrote this post. I'm recognizing that drinking lots of liquids and exercising like a mofo are a given. It isn't an option for me not to, and I'm totally fine with that (unless it's a rest day or an injury).
Wed Aug 11 I did a great job of journaling today. I journaled about my dreams , my husband, my physical issues, my weight and the realization that --"oh boy , the scale says 221.4 was not realistic since I was just sick for the last hour". I stood up for myself and my absolute requirement to have a daily treat when talking with the nutritionist. Went to Bible study and enjoyed developing relationships there.
Thurs Aug 12 I am grateful for wisdom and patience. I wore my XL sized Crowded House concert t shirt today and I'm so proud that I can buy a concert t shirt that fits.
Fri Aug 13 More good journaling today, recognizing why my body is reacting to the stress level in the house and talked to my husband about it. It started a change in his behavior.
Sat Aug 14 Realized how rigid I get ( a touch of my mama's OCD per- haps?). I went off plan as far as exercise and food , but really noticed how that made me feel and what became of that. I bought a great shirt that is sexy and feminine-hard to let myself do things like that.
Sun Aug 15 I ate thin crust veggie pizza and only ate 3 slices ( the old pj could eat a whole thing or at least half )and gave the rest of the pizza and water and cokes to the water dept guys that dug up our street / our yard / my garden in order to get a water leak stopped.
