It’s things like this that I need to see.
This is from a 10 hour work day. I got up, went to the office, and then traveled about 100 miles over the course of the day seeing clients.
My mind tricks me a lot. It says “oh, you worked 10 hours, you definitely moved enough, let’s have that extra snack.” And in reality, I didn’t move nearly enough. I thought I had many more steps than I actually did.
These mind tricks are not helpful towards weight loss in any way, and it means I’m really going to have to push myself to hit the gym or go for a walk 5-6 nights a week. I can’t expect the number on the scale to change when I’m not getting enough movement in.
Thankfully, I have the majority of my sessions already scheduled for next week, and since schools are starting, the majority of my sessions will be afternoon/evening sessions…meaning I have no excuse not to get to the gym in the mornings!
For now, I’m going to snuggle Donald and celebrate Harry Potter’s birthday by watching HP5. :)
