Glad for the rain because we need it, but it's raining hard enough that I'm not terribly thrilled about the idea of going for a walk in it today. I'll have to find something else to do for my ten minute exercise streak. Shoulders are a little sore from lopping grape vines yesterday evening. Kinda bummed that when I weighed this morning I was only .2 pound down from last Wednesday. I know that is better than gaining or even maintaining, and I'm already slightly ahead of my 1 pound a week goal, but can't help but be a little disappointed.
Still...the point is not necessarily to lose weight, but to be healthy. Eat better, move around more. Do it now, not later, because it will just get harder later. I know this, but convincing the inner me to think rationally isn't always easy. If it was, I wouldn't be in this mess in the first place.
Edited to add: apparently I was wrong. I'm down a pound from last Wednesday. The .2 must have been from earlier this week. That will teach me not to hop on the silly scale more than once a week!
