Have Fun & Focus on the Little Things
Random Thoughts:Today I learned that everyone has a scary experience when they first get tested for HIV/AIDS. I also learned that all of my co-workers are STD FREE! Anyway, the picture to the left is what I ate tonight at my "Team Building" meeting. "Team Building"actually means "Happy Hour" but not really :-)! It's a time when you hang out with the people you like from work and swap personal stories because you know they'll never tell . . lol! This brings me to my point for the day; when other people know that you're trying to lose weight they make provisions for you! My team is great! The only food provided tonight was healthy food! Thanks gals n guys! Now, back to weight. I DID NOT EXERCISE TODAY because I was busy. Plus I walked to Starbucks (not to get any drinks) and about half a block to my car. I say it's the little things that count. Imagine if you parked a block away from work everyday, took the stairs three times a week, or took the train instead of driving your car. OMG! What would happen if you ate a salad twice a week (with light dressing) instead of your favorite meal from the cafeteria? I mean really, would the world see a smaller, healthier you? At times we make weight loss seem so complicated when it doesn't have to be. This week (so far) has been challenging yet motivating and fun! I'm enjoying all of this! Weight loss should be focusing on the little things while having fun! Sidebar: I'm feeling really happy today about making it this week so all that stuff about weight loss being fun and motivating may be out the window tomorrow.
