I've been really, really loving my daily dog walks (which I am about to go on in about 10 minutes!). I start my day with fresh air, about three miles of walking, and bonding time with my new buddy :D
Six months ago to about three months ago, I considered getting rid of him all the time. But I knew those thoughts were a product of stress, grief, and depression. I am SO glad I didn't do it. I am so glad I am not the type of person to do things without trying to look at it logically. Even through the fog of my deep sadness and frustration, I knew I would regret giving him away.
I love Koda and he helps start my day off right!!
Seriously: Koda, my egg and veggie scramble, and a bout of yoga has improved my mood and my health TENFOLD. I keep doing it every day. It works.
So, weighing in. I was scared to weigh in since I had a rough couple of weeks as far as drinking, gave UP drinking for five days and drank again on Saturday. And drinking always comes with too much snacking.
But those 5 days of SUPER clean eating at about 1700 calories with absolutely no alcohol paid off.
Still weighing in at 127 :)
I wonder where I would be if I hadn't spent all that time drinking/eating... probably under 125 which is what I want!
I am going to get where I want to go and making another rule: NO DRINKING AT TV NIGHT! TV Night is Wednesday (so today!) and all our friends get together and have a ton of fun watching bad TV and joking and catching up on each others lives. We also drink a lot.
There is no reason for me to. I have JUST as much fun when I don't drink. And, though I do really like wine and beer and alcohol in general.... it just simply isn't doing me any favors. I HAVE to limit it somewhere and this is a good place to start: today :)
I have been trying. I have been having more on plan days than off. My off plan days aren't even terrible. I am staying healthy and my weigh in proves it. I am happy!
I just want to be better, is all. Who doesn't?
Okay, off to my walk with my favorite dog in the world...
