I am having a blah day. I got sick last night. My back was already hurting and then my stomach started cramping to the point where I wondered if I had an ovarian cyst or something. I took some advil and went to bed early and felt ok this morning. Just blah. Woke up not really wanting to go to work or think about exercise or weight loss or anything else. I would have greatly preferred a pj day.
Part of my blah-ness is that I feel like I have been in the 210s FOREVER. Part of the problem is my scale change, if I were using my old scale i would probably already be in the 200's. I just want to make progress and move on and some days if feels like it will never happen.
Another part of the blah-ness is how difficult travel is during this process. This past month, I took one 3 day trip where I did OK managing my goals and it seemed to stall my weight loss. I gained a little weight the week of the trip, I lost a little weight this week, pretty much I am the same weight for the past 3 weeks.
So can I improve my attitude and turn my blah into something else? Now I am at 213, when only a few months ago I was at 250, super depressed and unhappy with the way I looked. Now I am running 3 miles when a few months ago I couldn't walk a mile. Can I focus on the positive, the big picture, and stop sweating the small stuff? I don't know, I will try.
Thanks to everyone who reads and comments on my blogs. It really makes my day.
