We had dear friends stay with us this weekend AND I did it! I stayed on track! I did my workouts! I cooked healthy! I ate healthy! I am proud of myself!
Entertaining friends is a powerful trigger to stray off plan. I vowed this weekend to be true to myself. Hurray!
I invited my girlfriend to the gym with me where we did cardio and worked with my trainer togther with weight training. Then we went to Starbucks for a treat. I had a small nonfat sugar free decaf latte, about 100 calories.
Then we had lunch at the beach. I had a nicoise salad with no dressing. Then we hung out in the back yard sunshine. Everyone else was sipping (drinking) their favorite adult beverage while I drank mineral water (zero calories). I ate carrots while they noshed cheese and nuts.
I cooked a dinner of roasted root veges and oven roasted salmon with s side of tossed green salad. They drank wine while I drank water. Desert was fresh blueberries and strawberries. I had mine plain while they drizzled liquor on their.
I am not trying to sound sanctimonious, just trying to reinforce a point to myself, and to you, that we can do anything we set our minds to.
How are you doing with your intentions? My yoga teacher, Judy, asked me - in one word, how would you sum up your desire for 2013? I thought about it and said "Lighter". I want to be lighter physically and I want to lighten up mentally, not be as intense about things as I can be,
What is your word?
Desire to be lighter. Discipline to do lighter things. Dedication to love a lighter life.
