At least last week was balanced out

Monday, February 20, 2012

Weigh-in was this morning. I'm now at 234.5, a half pound lower than 2 weeks ago, before the horrible 5 lb. gain week last week. I don't know what the heck my body is doing, but I'm glad it came to its senses. :P

I work at a loan office, and all the banks are closed today. We aren't though. So we do a lot of staring out the window today. :P We've had a few people, but nothing like a normal Monday. I should have brought a workout DVD with me so I could work out in the back of the store. Oh well, maybe tomorrow.

I did pretty good with avoiding the scales last week. I didn't get on them till Saturday, and then not again till this morning. I really need to only get on them for weigh-in days. I don't want to feel so obsessed with the numbers. The numbers don't matter! I know that 173 now is going to look NOTHING like 173 did when I was 22. I've had two kids since then. Things are drooping. There's all this extra SKIN! That is SO not going to fit into a pair of jeans like it used to. lol I've got to forget about these stupid numbers and set other ways of tracking progress.

I went for a walk OUTSIDE yesterday. That was great. I didn't realize just how much I've missed the sun on my face. Maybe once I get back on a regular walking program, that's how I'll track my journey. I want to do a 5K this 4th of July. I want to be able to jog at least part of it (the more the better). That can be how I track my progress. I'll start with timing just a walk, then work up to a faster walk, a jog, etc. If I forget about this by the time the weather is good enough to be out all the time, someone remind me! lol

I want to thank everyone for their support, especially last week. I hate being in such a bad emotional place. Your encouragement, kind words, and helpful tips helped get me through a crap week. Thank you my dear Spark friends!

Have a great day everyone!

    A half pound loss is a half pound loss. I hope that half pound loss is the opening to new lower numbers for you. Just keep pushing forward. I can't wait for warmer weather, I prefer the outdoors over the four walls of a gym. Best sparkles to ya!
