Elliptical & baby steps
Saturday, January 26, 2019
Did 5 min on the elliptical, arms included, before my walk today. I must say it was more challenging than it looked. I liked being able to see how many cals i was burning as I worked.
The last couple nights I've been trying, and managing, to stay within range on calories. It's been encouraging to realize I don't have to feel hungry all day to achieve this. I haven't worked out yet staying in range in all categories at once, but I'm really focusing on calories for now.
Today I felt kinda....claustrophobic, i guess....restricted, you know? I got panicky, feeling like my life was becoming so regimented. I had this crazy urge to tear into a box of Twinkies, go crazy with rebellion. The urge passed, i calmed down, but it made me see that I have to keep my steps SMALL in order for them to become so habitual that they become a part of me, rather than going crazy with new goals and foods and fitness challenges that end up overwhelming me bc I didn't take the time to incorporate them in at a more natural pace.
So, i carry on as I was with a new appreciation for baby steps. I may even take the 21 Day and Small Changes challenges over again.
