Happy Hump Day! For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been feeling more and more in control. I had a great loss last week and I’ve been doing well so far this week.
On Monday, I came home from work after being gone for 11 hours. I didn’t get up early to go to the gym so I knew I had to change clothes and get my workout done. Dane was at a softball game, so putting my jammies on and sitting on the couch sounded a lot better but I knew that wouldn’t make me feel good. So..I put my workout clothes on and headed to the gym. I planned on doing 3 miles on the treadmill but I ended up knocking out 5 miles at an 8 incline.
Of course I felt so good when I was done. On Tuesday morning, I could definitely feel it in my butt and this morning I almost fell when I tried to walk. Wow, the incline definitely makes a difference!
Next Tuesday is my birthday and the festivities are scheduled to begin this weekend. On Saturday Dane and I are heading to Orlando with another couple. We plan on spending the afternoon at Sea World and then we’re going to have dinner/drinks somewhere near Downtown Disney. We have a hotel room within walking distance. We also agreed to go to the Ale House on Sunday to watch the Super Bowl with some friends of ours.
In the past my birthday or any other holiday was always a reason to go crazy but this time I don’t want to let it derail me. That’s not to say I’m not planning on having fun but I want to be able to get right back on plan.
Getting back in the groove is never an easy thing for me. I usually let things get way out of hand and don’t snap back until I’m faced with the harsh reality of what I’m doing to myself. In order to avoid this, my plan is to continue to track everything I eat (and drink) on Saturday and Sunday. That is something I never would have done.
How do you handle Birthdays or special events?
