I know that the scale is stupid and my self worth is not tied to that number. I know this. You don't need to tell me. I am not saying it is. I'm not asking for you to tell me I don't need to lose weight. I would get rid of the scale, but I don't want to.
Back to the number. Slowly but surely, the number on the scale has been going up and up, and I just sit there and watch it, munching on some chips and washing everything down with a sprite. It's like, I hate it, I want that number to go down, but I'm not doing anything to stop it.
The number that used to scare me is now my new normal.
I finally feel like my mind is in a good spot, I want my health and weight to catch up.
I know I talk a lot about getting back on track, it's been awhile since I have actually been on track. Since the button says a 'goal setting link-up' I thought I should get back to setting goals, rather than making fun of being my lazy habits.
Because we all know baby steps are where it's at, I only want to make one goal right now.
From today to the next Training for Tuesday link up, I want to work on my eating habits.
Because 'working on my eating habits' is fairly vague, here are the guidelines I want to stick to:
- no eating out for lunch. There are no healthy options and it just starts a snowball of eating badly.
- no sprite. Don't drink your calories, yo.
- eat some fruits and vegetables.
- portion control. You are not your husband, Kristen.
We are going to Disney in a couple of weeks. I'm not going to pretend I will be eating healthy there. Not gonna happen. But I'm also going to not eat everything in sight just because I can.
So there you go. Of course I want to exercise and hopefully lose weight, but I am not focusing on those. Getting my eating under control, especially before the holiday season, is my main focus and goal right now.
Linking up with Tracy & Alyssa.
Anyway, sorry I know this wasn't a super exciting post. Thank you for sticking with me constantly talking about the same things. Any tips on getting back on track for eating healthy?
