Today I am Vegging and Reflecting.

Thursday, November 08, 2012

I am still sick today and home "vegging" on the couch again. I feel worse when I stand, but I am starting to feel better.

I have been surfing SparkPeople this morning, my favorite down time activity. I like to do this because I find it motivating, but also because it is a good positive reinforcement. I am not the only person struggling. I am not the only person with slow results. I am, most certainly, not alone.

I have been thinking about taking a break from the scale this week. Maybe even for a few weeks. I am considering sticking to my calorie range, continuing tracking what I eat and what exercise I do. It would be nice to feel the pride in the healthy life style and worry less about the scale. That is just a number. The real accomplishment are the other goals I have: Eating healthier, exercising more and living an overall healthier lifestyle. Then, when I do that, maybe in a few weeks I will be pleasantly surprised.

    Hope you get to feeling better Julia! I also find that surfing spark makes me feel better. I try and stay positive and motivate others so they know they are not alone. It can get depressing weighing yourself but I have an obsession with the scale.

    Awesome post! Your are so right about the scale.. It is good to set small goals and build upon them. I appreciate your support and if there is anything i can do.. please don't hesitate to ask.

When i first started Spark i really enjoyed the 30 day shred which is a Jillian Micheals workout. About 15-20 mins long but very very effective you will Sweat. Anyways wishing you quick recovery and strong health.

Have a great day!
