Going off board for awhile, I have time to think and self-motivate, but it's just not the same without my board buddies. So I'm telling you, you have been in my thoughts. I could hear your voices when I was going on sodium-overload, etc.. I could also hear your voices to get back to the healthy journey.
Thanks guys! I hope you heard my voice, too.
I am going on another road trip and I am making my list of "healthy must haves". Taking the time to prepare takes the temptation out of travel.
I was thinking that I need a short term goal. The time between Christmas and New Year's is about a week. The thing here is that some of us (ME) are starting to fall back to old habits.
Here's what I am going to do to re-set my focus. Drink 64 oz. water, watch sodium, portion control, increase fresh veggies and fruits and move more (even when my regular exercise machines are not available).
I think this time period is important for me to push re-set and not wait until 2013.
Happy holidays, Barb. Glad you checked in before you are off traveling again. I am determined to take the weight I've gained over the past week off before the New Year. I think most of mine will come of pretty quickly since, like you, I ate a lot of salty foods that I rarely eat (ham, bacon, etc.). I totally agree that we shouldn't wait until after New Year's to get back on track. I fear that if I don't get control TODAY, I might never get back on track.
