Default Ladies we need to stop beating ourselves up!

I am reading a lot of posts lately about messing up and feeling bad about it! (guilty of it myself) I am tired of focusing on the negatives. So I am starting a new thread:

What great thing did you do today to help your weightloss journey/healthier you?

Today I exercised when I didn't want to. I also am marinating chicken for dinner tonight instead of ordering the traditional Monday night pizza. (Monday is discount day....cheap and easy, but not tonight!!)

Let's start focusing on the positive changes we are making and not beat ourselves up when we slip a little. Nobody is perfect!

Good post! I, too, read a lot of stories about women who feel horribly for "messing up". We are all human and life happens. Things happen. Things come up. Things get in the way. It is what it is.

What did I do today to help my weightloss journey/healthier me? I am eating a pack of Kashi Go Lean oatmeal instead of one of the brownie pops I made for work today. They are around the same calories, but the oatmeal is so much healthier and much more filling.

I'm with ya'!

I walked at lunch even though I didn't feel like it and I tracked both pieces of gum I ate on my calorie counter. I'm planning a delicious tuna fish sandwich for dinner right after I donate blood after work.

Great idea. I am all for positive vibes. Today I could have stopped at Wendy's for a Frosty since I was craving one. Instead, I came back to work and had my fat free pudding cup instead. Now I don't really miss it.

I did not go near a huge bowl of candy filled with Hershey kisses, miniatures, snack size m&m's, peanut butter cups, etc.

I didn't buy the chicken quesadilla that I wanted. Instead, I picked up my nuts, cheese, meat, etc. The flour would make me itchy again, and I know it. That doesn't mean I don't *want* it.

I cleaned out and re-organized my gym clothes drawer (which last year I re-prioritized to be the top drawer in my dresser).
I gleefully put the pants and sport bras that are now too big in the donation box and made sure all my workout clothes are clean and ready to go.
Finished the project out by washing and repacking my gym bag.

This is a neat idea for a post. Thanks for putting it up, LTs girl!

As for me, today I resisted diving into the box of chocolate that I got for Valentine's Day. Instead I shoved it in the back of the fridge.

One of the ways "this time" has been different, is banishing blame and punishment. I always gave up diets when I couldn't tolerate another minute of joyless deprivation and self-punishment. I found a way to make changes a way to pamper, not punish myself. It doesn't feel like "dieting" it feels like being the patron of my own luxury spa.

Today's luxuries though was courtesy of my husband, he made a lovely (and light) steak dinner for V-Day with jamaica (a deep pink-red iced tea made from simmering hibiscus flowers. Hubby loved it when he tried it in a mexican restaurant. He used to buy a sugary mix, but now buys the flowers so we can sweeten to our own taste. I use a little Splenda).

Love talking about the positive! We had cookies, chocolates and a chocolate cake today at the office because V-Day and a B-day. Resisted all that, mainly cuz sweets are not my thang. BUT. We went out to a Cajun seafood restaurant at lunch for co-workers b-day and that was hard! I made it through... had salad w/dressing on side and broth based seafood gumbo (1 cup) but it was sooo hard But worth it!

Today I had my son set his own alarm clock because I went to the gym to take a spinning class. And guess what? He got up and got ready on his own. And (most importantly) I do NOT feel guilty about it! I was still home in time to take a shower and drive him to school.
