I had a good Monday and that completely surprised me. I always expect Mondays to be totally awful. Work had potential to be awful. One of my co-workers was scheduled off yesterday and one of her direct reports came in very ill. I had her leave and that meant her work needed to be covered as well. The end result was I didn't stress out at all. I knew my department could absorb the work and I didn't let it get to me.
I walked in the morning, during lunch, and after work. I found I felt good at work most of the day. I had an extra spring in my step all day long. I was at work and in a relatively good mood all day. Usually Mondays are the worst for me and I was glad this one wasn't.
I weighed in yesterday and it shows a loss of 2.2 pounds on the scale. That felt so good to me. I'm noting my clothes are loosening a bit as well. I'm just feeling much more positive and encouraged. I went on my weight loss goals area and recalculated my calorie range. I ended losing 150 calories a day. I know I was behind my goal. I'll go out there every couple of months to make sure I'm on track to make my goal by my birthday February 5th. I know I can do it.
I made my meals as usual and I've started to plan my dinner for tonight as well. I'm planning to walk over 5 miles today. I'm walking an hour before work and my typical 30 minutes after work. I want to do 45 minutes during lunch as well. Today is going to be a good day for me. I can feel it.
