Notes on an UNsuccessful week
Saturday, August 13, 2011
First off, I'm feeling no drama, tears, rants or rages here ... just the fact and only the facts.
Up one pound from last week. Now, last week I had stayed the same and I figured that was accountable because of the two times I ate out with friends and family that week. This week is another story.
I only tracked 4 out of the last 7 days on my nutritional tracker thoroughly; the last three I only tracked partially. Even today I was starting to feel "meh" about it ... but before I started this blog I dutifully tracked what I've eaten so far today. That's a habit that works for me. It works when I work it.
I ate a lot more in the last few evenings than normal. Last night in particular. Yesterday I had a migraine that lasted about four hours. Afterwards, I just needed to eat for comfort. No buts about it. But today ... today I don't need to keep eating for comfort.
Last week I didn't exercise near as much as I usually do. Yoga was only two times, and I definitely felt a lacking in my giddy-up.
I also didn't get on line as much and spend the time on Spark People that I usually do.
The successful part of this week is that I'm not beating myself up, I know what corrections I can make and I am going to do that. It all falls together and works together when I work it. I'm not giving up, not letting go of my inner spark. As a matter of fact, today I had one of the BEST yoga classes I've ever had. I stretched before I went, chose a spot in the front of the class, stretched really good before class started, and reached new depths and heights ... even got a compliment from the teach on the height I got on the lotus! Been waiting for that
Onward ho happy campers. This elf is feeling her spark today
