There comes a time when every life goes off course. In this desperate moment you must choose your direction. Each morning you choose to move forward or to simply give up. I am on a mission to get my old self back, both mentally and physically.
... I did the DWTS Latin Cardio Dance workout DVD. It wasn't bad. I worked up a sweat, but it didn't get my heart rate up too much. I'll probably do it again tho, throw it into the rotation every so often.
It is good to be back to a somewhat normal routine. I'm able to work out and cook my own meals and stay on track. My parents will be back next week, but they have more trips planned and hopefully we will be moving soon, so things will be busy. I need to stay focused and motivated. I feel my motivation dipping a little bit, but I won't let it really.
I have a little thing that's bothering me today- foods that pretend to be healthy but aren't. Like Quaker Oatmeal Squares cereal, pictured here. I love this cereal, I could snack on it all day... which is why I don't buy it. However, I saw a commercial for it with Bob from the Biggest Loser and thought I'd get some and just make sure to measure it out and all that. So I get home and calculate out the points of it, and it is 6 pts for a cup! That is a lot! Yesterday, I ate some straight from the box and estimated it to be about 2 cups. Bad move, but it fit into my points for the day. But now I'm measuring them out and eating them as a treat because that is just too much for one little cup.
Attitude of Gratitude: We have a lot of food in the freezer, so other than produce, I don't have to buy any groceries.
