But today starts a new month. And even though I too chuckle at the "my diet starts Monday - again" memes on the interwebs, I don't doubt the mental boost you get by starting fresh in a new month.
We'll just call July my rest month. Sure...
But what really has helped me today was looking at this picture over the weekend....
This was mid-April, 2015. I was probably around 230 pounds at this point. The biggest change that leaps out to me is in my face.
|Mid-May 2016, around 185|
It's not just about the scale and "image" - it's about knowing that I'm active and proactive about doing the right things for my body.
So today, with the exception of a couple Reeses Cups, my diet has been on point. I wanted MORE chocolate but I calmed myself down. I made up for the sugar/carbs with a high protein/low carb dinner. I did a C25K run on the indoor track and an exercise video at home. I'm pre-planning my meals and exercise for tomorrow as well.
But the thing I'm most looking forward to this week is a Sunday Yoga Brunch at our local brewery.
