Staying focused on days like this is hard for me to do. I mean the big picture is right there - I keep telling myself to look up, it's right in front of you. Keep your head up and you will see it!
As far as weight loss, well the scale didn't move - in either direction. Okay, this happens from time to time. TOM is about to show up, if on schedule - midweek, so the scale not moving is actually impressive. I've been known to rocket up the scale by 10 lbs. in a blink of an eye when my TOM comes about. So yeah, no movement is good today.
Fatigue, today is a down day. (insert yawn here) I felt if coming on last night in step class, at the beginning of class I felt like I was knee deep in wet sand. I finished the class strong though and took my time walking home.
Realization. I have to pull the trigger and complete the GI test. It's really, really expensive so I've put it off. Enough of that! As my husband says, "shut your eye and just do it." I hate spending money but I hate the state I'm in even more so I guess it's time. Next week I shut my eye and make it happen, HA!
Health Insurance. I won't make weight for the new health insurance. It's just not physically possible in a week to from 238.5 to 231. I've come to terms with it. The new insurance company is paying someone to come out to draw blood, take away a urine sample, blood pressure and my height and weight. I can obtain the results from the test and plan to do so. It can only help me keep my eye on that big picture. I currently have health insurance so I won't be without, just need the change. We have options, which is more than some in this country.
I took a look in full length mirror today and stopped to admire myself. Lookin' good is what I heard a voice whisper. Yeah, I am - strike a pose!
5K race. I am going to ask a friend if she can be there when I finish. My husband can't and my family lives out of state. No one has offered to come from the area so it's time to extend an invitation.
The rest of life's going's on is a source of temporary frustration. The key word there is, "Temporary!"
Workout daily - you have a 5K coming up - work it out lady
Stay hydrated with lots of water
Enjoy the little things in life that pop up
Stay focused on the End Game
