Thursday Thoughts, January 25th

<==  This cupcake seems to be fitting to some extent here lately.  I have had a bit of a sweet tooth.  Not anything super major, just those mini chocolates (like you get a Halloween), but definitely don't need to make a habit of so I need to get a handle on it.  I have been feeling a little low with everything going on in my life right now, but I am determined note to sink into a depression like that one that tried to sink me years ago.  I am trying to make some better choices this week, but it hasn't gone quite as well as I would prefer.  Such is life, right?  While I may not be where I want to be, I'm taking it one step at a time.  Literally, I am trying to hit at least 6,000 steps per day and I'm doing okay with that overall.  I guess it's about time to move that goal up to 8,000.  The thing that I am trying to focus on while I am trying to move toward my goal is that I want to hit my goal, but I don't want to try to do double workouts and such now if I


Wow, it's been a minute since I've posted.  I am trying to get my routines down and that is not easy.  I didn't do well with getting up early this past week.  It was really cold here and I don't deal well with the cold.  Our weather is supposed to be warmer in the coming week so my goal is to get a morning workout rather than trying to do smaller ones throughout the day, as I did when it was colder.  I also need to make sure I am tracking consistently.  I had a gain over the weekend, but to be honest, I drank some Dr Pepper last week and that hasn't been the norm for me.  I had a horrible headache and the caffeine seems to help.  This week, I have some meal ideas and can hopefully get everything together to make sure I get my dinners made.   I was reading blogs on my bloglovin feed and ran across one from Friday before last and it really reminded me that negative self talk can really deter one's weight loss efforts, as well as cause problems in other areas o
