Today, I am headed home from one of the most relaxing and exciting weeks I’ve had in quite some time. My family and I had so much fun while we stayed along the Colorado River with both my brothers, sister in laws and nieces. I want to tell you that it’s beautiful here and that the scenery is so different from where I live in Northwest Pennsylvania. You have to check this this picture out ……
Look at the mountains! This picture is of one of my brothers and both my girls on the wave runner. It does the area, no justice. My girls had never been on one before and they LOVED it!
Now that I’m headed back home, I need to get back on track with getting to my weight loss goal. I’ll admit that I’ve splurged a little this week and I’m totally okay with that because moderation is key! I drank my water during the day, ate according to my meal plan and for the most part I chose to continue to eat healthy all week. There were a few times that I took advantage of “being on vacation” and allowed myself some cheats; One being a peach martini. It was DELICIOUS! I also got my workouts in by walking, running after my nieces (I forgot how active 2-1/2 year olds are.), playing in the pool and so on.
Now Its time to get back on track and I ‘ve decided to pull out my “go-to action plan.” This is something that I use when “life gets in the way” or like now, returning from vacation. Whenever I need to refocus on my goals, I like that I can apply these little “tricks” and put the plan back into play. Do you have an action plan? If you do, great! If not, let’s get together and make one.
If you already have your action plan already figured out, I want you to close your eyes, take a deep breath and envision it happening. Anything that you might feel bad about doing, like eating a sweet snack, just allow it to disappear. What’s done is done. It’s time to move on!
Next, you’re going to focus on the things that you need to do to get back on track. If you know that you didn’t eat enough fruits or vegetables, aim to do just that the rest of the day. If it’s drinking more water, work on drinking more water. Then, you increase that the next day and so on until you’ve gotten fully back on track. Work it into your day and make it manageable for you.
What I want to tell you is that every healthy thing that you do, does add up and the more and more you do it, the easier it becomes. I want you to consider it a victory for you! With each of those victories, you should celebrate. I’d LOVE for you to share with me. I BELIEVE in YOU!
