Sunday was cancelled
Deleted from my diet/exercise regimen, that is.
I've done very well at tracking my calorie intake and exercise at The Daily Plate at Livestrong.com (sample page shown above). I have been working out weekly with a trainer and have taken what I've learned and revised the way I exercise on my own. I am committed to getting stronger and healthier.
But I am not obsessed.
I got into this with the encouragement of my best friend, who is determined to finish the Boulder Bolder (a 10k race at the end of this month) in less than 60 minutes. I, however, am not training for a race. I'm changing the way I eat and move for a lifetime.
So if today I have a pair of mimosas at lunch with my mom (and I did), if I have eclairs and cheesecake and strawberry shortcake in the same day (and I did), if I take a cab from my front door instead of hoofing it to the bus stop (and I did), all is not lost. I will begin again tomorrow.
On second thought, I think I'll do a few sit ups before bed. I'm not obsessed, but I am motivated. A much better approach.
