First of all, I'm home today. It wasn't a planned sick day, but on my way to work my contact lens fell out on the train! I looked & looked, but it had disappeared. So I caught a return train & am waiting for the optometrist's office to call me back. I badly need a new prescription anyway & had been planning to call & make an appointment. i hope he can see me today.
Second, I've decided to accept my body's clear decision to park at 150 lbs for now. The mirror tells me that I'm just fine. Come spring I may want to work harder & lose those 8 remaining pounds; it will be easier then because I can go running regularly again.
My winter challenge will just be to maintain, exercise, & get adequate protein. I'll weigh daily, & anytime I go up a pound I will require myself to track my food until I get back down. I'll track exercise regularly, though, to add to my team's SparkAmerica points, & for my own motivation.
I'll continue to check in daily on my team's message board, read my friends' blogs, & do my own blogging. Even though most of the SP e-mails I get nowadays feature articles I've already read, I'll use SP as a resource to learn more about nutrition & exercise, & when I figure out something new I'll share it.
That's the plan!
