    I need some motivation. It's been storming here and the gym closed at 9. Why would a gym close at 9? They have three clubs, you would think one of them would stay open until midnight. It's stopped raining and it's crazy but it's 69 degrees outside, I should go out there and walk before another storm starts but I just can't seem to make myself go out there. It's so dark. If I'm not careful I will end up walking around my living room for 20 mins nonstop just so I can get my exercise in. Tomorrow is weigh in day. I should literally get up and quit watching football.

    Exercise at least 20 mins? You betcha! 😁 I made myself do it but I walked 4 miles! I really really didn’t want to! 🙄 But so glad I did!
    Logged? Yes
    Tracked? Yes

    I knew tomorrow was weigh in day and I also knew that I needed to get up and do something, no matter what it was. I went outside and went around the neighborhood. Luckily the rain ☔️ had broken for a short amount of time. The one thing I’ve learned though is I need some new shoes!

    Exercised?: Yes (6 km walk in 47 mins)
    Calories?: Yes
    Tracked?: Yes

    Drove 90 minutes to have lunch with my wife's mother, then 90 minutes back again. Was nice to be with family. Lunch was at a Japanese restaurant, very nice food, but restrained from overeating.

    Fortunately, less disruptive day with our daughter today, but I can feel areas where I am still struggling.


    The eighth mini-challenge is: Spend 1 minute focused on the topic of "over-generalisation"

    This is similar to the mindful breathing exercise. Sit and calm your mind and focus on a single topic. Only for a minute.

    The topic of "all or nothing thinking" comes from "Feeling Good" by David D Burns and is part of cognitive based therapy.

    "Over-generalisation" is a common thinking error when we look at a single bad event as repeating endlessly. Like if you mess up and eat ice cream when you told yourself you wouldn't you conclude I have no self control, I have never had any self control, I will never learn, I will always pig out.

    The truth is that, any event has multiple causes (some obvious and some hidden) and any changes in the causes will change the event.

    History will not repeat endlessly if you change the causes.

    There will be a number of these 1 minute mindful reflection topics throughout this month.

    @coccolino30, sorry it's been a struggle. Maybe you can try reaching for healthy snacks at night, like carrot sticks, celery, etc. This journey is sometimes more mental than physical. You can do this!! Great going with the C25K!! :heart:

    @SillyCat1975, wonderful loss!! Congrats! :star:

    @33sandy1223, ONEDERLAND!!! :star:

    @coccolino30. Small steps. Little wins.

    #1. IGNORE DAILY WEIGHT. This is probably the hardest. You need a 7 day average to make any sense as to what is truly going on. Daily weight can fluctuate by up to 2 kg A DAY. MOST of this is water. Higher soduim (salt) diet, cooler temperatures, less sleep you TEND to retain water. Lower soduim, warmer temperatures, more sleep you TEND to expel more water (through breathing and skin evaporation as well as the obvious).

    #2. Forget yesterday. Do not try compensate for yesterday. Assuming 6km is you average day. 3km yesterday and 9km today does not equal 6km yesterday and 6km today. You do just as well doing 3km yesterday and 6km today.

    #3. If feeling like a treat after dinner, try this little trick. 1) Have a glass of water, 2) set a timer for 10 mins on your phone 3) If the timer goes off after 10 mins and you still feel like a treat, have one (but not while watching TV, or surfing the net/social media on computer/tablet). If you have a treat, after the water, you know that a) you need it, b) you earned it, c) it's not just dehydration/thirst in disguise.

    Do not try to change too much at once. Do one small step at a time and credit yourself for each small step you make. Reward ALWAYS works much better than punishment.
