Friday but a sad Friday

Friday, July 30, 2010

It is Friday and I am down some more on the scale this morning. I got up at 4:45 because I had to be sure to have time to get dressed since I have a funeral to go to at 11AM. I did my work out, took a shower, and got to work at 7:50. I was greeted with the news that one of my friends and co-worker's little brother died in an accident last night. It is really sad around here today. I am going to a charity fashion show tonight but I don't really feel much like it. Hopefully after the funeral I will be a little more ready to change into my going out clothes for tonight. There is a balance of happy and sad. That is just the way of the world. At least the sad gives you a new appreciation of the happy moments. Here's to a good weekend and another strong week next week!

    Wow...what a mix of emotions. Be gentle with yourself today. It's a lot to deal with emotionally, although your post seems to reflect you have a really healthy attitude toward the reality of it all today. So I commend you for that. Sometimes it helps me, when I have a real mixture of stuff in my life and need to somehow "hold" all of that at once, to do something to make what I call "an outward symbol of an inner reality." For example, find a small object to represent each of the different emotions you are carrying today--like maybe a small stone for the weight you lost, a black ribbon for the funeral, a little toy or trinket to represent the friends little brother who died, a piece of jewlery for the fashion show, and you spend a little time, it can be just a couple minutes, holding each one and affirming the "rightness" of the feelings created in you by what they represent. You deserve to be happy and proud of your weight loss even though other things about today are sad, you grieve for your coworker and her loss, you hold memories of the person whose funeral you are going to, and tonight is an affirmation that in spite of all this, life goes on and what you are called to do is to LIVE the life you have been given. That way you've given yourself permission and a way to hold all of these feelings at once. You are honoring each one, so you don't have to feel guilty about being happy for your weight loss because you are sad for your friend....etc... Anyway, if that doesn't work for you, just disregard my post and accept my good intentions, but it has been something that has sometimes been helpful to me when a situation is complicated. Prayers for you today!

Pleasant Surprise on Thursday Morning

Thursday, July 29, 2010

I got up this morning at the normal 4:58AM. I went potty and then weighed. I was down to 146.4. I usually don't drop like that this deep into a weight loss period. I am pleased with 0.5-1 pound a week so this was really exciting. I am still religiously doing my exercises and doing pretty good with nutrition also. It seems to be paying off. I am going to lower my goal weight. I set it forever ago and I am close enough now to adjust it with a little more idea of what it will really be like. I had set my goal weight at 142 but now I think 134 will be an appropriate weight. I am excited since it has been a long time since I weighed in the 130's. Here is to setting an surpassing goals!

Wednesday and Still Going

Wednesday, July 28, 2010

This week has been weird. Yesterday was awful but I shook it off pretty well with a 45 minute walk last night. Today has started okay but who knows how it will end. It is still early. I am hoping for a good day. I could use it about now. I did my exercise this morning and may go for another walk this evening after work. It worked well yesterday. It is supposed to be scattered thunder storms all afternoon but you can never tell. I am sure it will all work itself out!

Tuesday & Going Strong

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

I am up and at 'em today. I did my FF&FU and an hour on my Life Cycle, got ready and came to work. I seem to be energized for some reason. My hubby and I went for a short 30 minute walk last night which was very nice. It is humid in NM for the last couple days and I look like a damn Q-tip. That is one thing I do not miss from growing up in the South...humidity. My hair is a completely different animal in the Southwest. I had to upgrade moisturizer and conditioner but that seems like a small price to pay for good hair days. I think we are going to Jason's Deli for lunch. I can have a cup of SW Chicken Chili and half a Mediterranean Wrap and be within my calorie requirements, no problems!

Monday Morning - So Much Promise

Monday, July 26, 2010

Well we are at another Monday. The entire week ahead of me. No clue how it will go or how I will react to it. Oddly that is comforting. I had a great weekend. I was down on the scale and we went on a little road trip. I am really hoping for an outstanding week. I don't usually go out to lunch much anymore. It is easier to control my caloric intake if I bring my lunch...not to mention more cost effective. We are going to Pei Wei today since they have a buy one entrée get one free special. They have a salad that is outstanding and fits my diet perfectly. Of course I only eat half. I will take the rest home for dinner unless I find someone who wants to go and split it with me. That is the perfect plan. The person I usually split with is off today since it is her b-day. Well here is to a great lunch and fantastic week!
