I don't know what my deal is today. I'm a positive, happy-go-lucky person 99% of the time. Today fell into that 1%.
I think my first mistake was stepping on the scale this morning (I typically weigh in on Sunday). I could not believe that it hasn't budged AT ALL. I've really stepped up the running in the last 2 weeks and I guess I thought I would see instant results on the scale. *sigh* It was really frustrating to me because last weeks weigh in the scale HARDLY moved. I know in my head that I need to expect that there are going to be plateaus and times when it feels like nothing's changing, but I KNOW things are changing. My clothes are loose, my cardio is probably the best it has ever been in my WHOLE LIFE. There are so many positives and I just need to focus on that.
I think another factor for my "mood" today was the weather. The last 2 days it's been well over 70 degrees. The kids and I spent a ton of time outside enjoying the sunshine. It was so nice to NOT be cooped up in the house. Today it was around 50, cold, windy, and cloudy. I thought for sure we were going to get rain. It was just tough to take after all the gorgeous weather we've had.
My body needed a break, so I decided to take the day off from exercise. I've put in at least 30 minutes (most days it's more like 60-75) every day this week. I'm achy. I am not feeling motivated. Everyday tasks were taking a lot of energy today, so I think my body was just telling me to slow down.
Tomorrow is a NEW DAY! When I get up I'm going to NOT EVEN LOOK AT THE SCALE. I'm going to have a healthy breakfast, and then I'm going to go out for an easy 2-3 mile run. I'm hoping my day off is just what I needed.
Thanks sparkfriends for letting me get this out! Happy Easter!
