I am writing you from a hotel room in Carmel, Indiana. I got here last night for a Delta blogger event (faucets, not airplane). :)
We are getting ready to head out for the day and have a lot of stuff on our agenda, but before I do, I wanted to stop in and give you an update on my Journey to Wellness.
If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can read Part 1 HERE.
First of all, I was overwhelmed (in a good way) by all of the comments, messages, and emails that I have gotten the past week in response to that post. I read every one of your comments on that post, and it is very obvious that many of us are struggling with the exact same thing. But knowing that you were praying for me, and many of you were joining me in this journey, made it so much better!
So last week, my main goal was to drink more water, and drink more water I did. My aunt Pat got me a stainless steel tumbler like this one for my birthday, that is perfect for drinking lots of water.
It is big, and it keeps my water ice cold all day long. I also love that it is stainless steel because I can use my essential oils in my water, and it doesn’t hurt them or the cup.
Honestly, the first half of the week I did better at drinking more water than the second half of the week. My birthday was yesterday, so my Dad and Janet took me to lunch on Monday, and of course, I had a coke with my meal as a treat. And then yesterday Tuesday was my real birthday, so of course, I had to treat myself again with a coke. And last night was a welcome reception at the Delta Event, and I didn’t want to be rude, so of course I ate #allthefoods. (See where I am going with this?).
It is so easy to get distracted from our goals. Every day, I start out really good, but by the end of the day, I’ve usually blown it.
But I am not going to let it get me down. I am going to continue drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day. I am determined to like that stuff! ha!
This week, I am going to add another goal…..exercise. ugh.
This is a hard one. Especially because it is hard for me to find time to exercise. And if I DO find time to exercise, well…that’s the last thing I want to do with my extra time, ya know?! It is so hard to be motivated.
Sooooo, I am going to be using an app called, Lose it! I have used this app in the past, and I love it!
It is a simple way to keep track of what I am eating and how much I am exercising. I wanted to see if you would want to be friends on this app and encourage each other along the way? (Btw, I am NOT an affiliate for Lose it!, and this is not a sponsored post. I just like this app.)
I’ve never added “friends” on this app, so I am not sure the best way to do it, but if you download the app, you can find me and request to be friends.
I am “Traci-Beneath My Heart” on the app.
I am going to start logging what I eat, how much water I drink, and how much I exercise on this app. I “think” we can message each other and encourage each other through this app. Ya wanna do it?! (Please say yes. Please say yes.)
That’s it for today, folks!
I gotta go now. Let me know in the comments how your week went.
Did you start drinking more water? Got any advice for me about how to get motivated to exercise?
I would love to hear about it!
Have a blessed day!
