Today went great! Sunday dinner was excellent, heavy on the veggies. I took the advice of a good friend who sent me a text at 7:45 this morning. It said, “Remember, only one plate. Never take seconds.” At mealtime, I gave myself and appropriate serving of everything, minus the gravy and roll. I felt very satisfied afterwards even though I ate less than half of what I usually do for Sunday dinner…let alone a “Fast-Sunday” dinner.
I was tempted to jump on the scale this morning to see how things are going but I have decided to only weigh myself once a week (Friday). I think that is the best way to forge a great relationship between me and the bathroom scale. Anything more than that seems a bit obsessive.
Another friend of mine called and said she gains a sense of commitment by entering a race that is a few months away. It gives her a goal to shoot for as she builds herself up to make a strong finish in the race. One of the races she is suggesting is a team relay where each person runs a short leg of a very long route. That one scares the crap out of me because my being able to run it fast or slow…or even run it at all, will affect the whole team. But on the other hand, it sounds like good motivation to keep up with the recommended training schedule. What do you think? Maybe I could get a good enough feeling of commitment from signing up for regular race? I guess I need to get off my butt and hit the pavement either way.
Thanks again for reading. Please let me know how you are doing with your goals as well.
