Last night my hubby and I had dinner with some friends from out of town whom we hadn’t seen in quite some time. It was so good to catch up. (And yes, we did pick a healthy place to eat…Seasons 52! Y U M!)We share a common bond in that we have both been on “healthy lifestyle” kicks. She has been working on getting healthy for over a year now. She told me last night she has ran 11 races since last April and has dropped 63 pounds. I am sooo excited for her! I tell her often that I watch all of her posts about running, in secret hopes of being a “runner” one day too.
The best advice she gave me last night…was KEEP GOING. Talk to yourself often. “Hey, you may not have RUN that 5K, but you did walk it. IT is better than sitting on the couch!”- In other words, find the positive and embrace it. Seize the moment.
Earlier this afternoon, my hubby called. We were talking about this past week and how we “fell off the wagon” so to speak with our food choices. (Since our anniversary.) Yes, we have eaten a lot less at home- which means more processed (and MORE SALT!)
I can feel the bloating from the salt…ugh!! Drinking a TON of water.
I was telling him I was pretty down, feeling kind of miserable.
One thing he did point out, even though we haven’t been making the smartest choices- we are still TRYING to be mindful. For example- we have bought one meal and split it. (This controls not only cost but calories) and we seem quite content afterwards.
A year ago.. we would have finished the plate EACH. So progress… is STILL progress.
Maybe I need to lighten up on the self inflicted guilt?
Tonight, we work out. It has been about a week.
I still have yet to break in the new workout shoes.
Tonight, looks like it will be the night.
Hubby says he will juice with me. We are thinking about doing day time juicing and one protein rich meal per day.
Not sure when we will start. Will keep you updated as I know.
Until next time,
See ya on the Random Side..
