I promise that I will be KIND to myself today, whatever that may entail.
I will let myself go to sleep at 8pm without tidying the house, I will eat all the fruit and veg I have with me, and maybe even buy some more. I will let myself have a cookie, if that is truly what I want and I will not beat myself up about it.
Most of all, I will let myself rest and try not to get too wound up about not exercising. (I am resting for a week after over-training)
To pull myself up from the bootstraps. I had a horrid weekend in terms of diet and exercise and I feel worse than if I had a hangover. Maybe I do have a hangover. Workout, eat right, drink water, rest.
I promise that tomorrow (it is Monday evening already here) I will not be hard on myself if the scales haven't moved down. I'm doing everything right, so I just have to learn to have some patience.
I also promise that I will stick to my limited exercise routine, as I was another one who over exercised last week and actually made myself ill. I am finding it hard to get off the treadmill and exercise bike after only 25 mins, but I will force myself to stick to that time frame.
I wish I could promise to drink enough water, but I just CAN'T! I am really not thirsty and I find that when I FORCE the water down, I am going to the toilet every 10 to 20 mins (no exaggeration!).
That should do for me for the moment.
