Past that...

Thursday, March 11, 2010

I'm glad to be done with yesterday. It was a very difficult, emotional day for me. I didn't go for a walk and I feel guilty about it, but I did work in the yard and rake, and I did teach last night so that was TONS of walking around. Maybe not the intensity of a "WALK," but I'm just glad I didn't sit on the couch and watch TV all day, so I guess that was better than a sharp stick in the eye, as my father would say...

Yesterday, despite my truly consistent efforts, the scale was UP. That was kind of a bummer, and in the past, that would have been enough to send me to the kitchen, but yesterday, with what else was on my mind, AND because of the Spark, I just let it slide.
I was really okay with it.
And this morning, to quote Alton Brown, my patience has been rewarded.
I'm actually starting to see a difference, even though I've only lost 6 pounds. My face looks less round.

So after a VERY down day yesterday more of an even keel today.
Something to be grateful for...

    It is good that you got in some sort of activity. Exercise doesn't have to be a structured event, simply movement. Keep up the good work. The weight will come off.
