I did it right, I did it right, I did it right

Friday, March 09, 2012

It is Friday and I had a hard week doing everything I was supposed to do. I drank my water every day. I ate my five + fruits and veggies each day. I ate within my limits all week. I swam every day this week. I got on the scale today and I was down 1 pound.

I know "DO NOT LISTEN TO THE SCALE " !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I did not want to go to the pool this morning. I told myself that all the hard work I did this week was for nothing. I was wrong!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!. I went to the pool any way and swam another mile. I walk around all day hurting because I am pushing myself so hard in the pool. Then I talk with others that have soooooooooooo many more problems than I do. I have to thank God that I have been blessed with the pain that I am feeling. I am hurting because I CAN swim. I can get off the couch and go out for a walk. I can move with out any assistance. I need to embrace those achy muscles. I need to be glad for another day at the pool. I will not listen to the scale. I will not stop doing it right. Sooner or later this excess baggage that I have will leave. Sooner or later I'll be able to swim faster and farther.
Thank you God for this pain. Thank you God for my health. Thank you God for the ability to go to the pool and push my self. I did it right, I did it right, I did it right and it will pay off !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
