Today was one of those day, well, it started out that way. I had to "beat myself around" as my Mississippi grandmother would say to ride my stationary bike, to walk with my husband, to get my students' papers graded, and finally to go to school (just for a minute)!
It was when I was at school, that my motivation kicked in and "made the day right". The creativity came back to me, the depression abated (somewhat), I made bulletin boards and got the energy to continue. The same will be said of my weight loss journey. As I slow down my brain, my impulses to eat, and my compulsion to exercise (that's why my knees were replaced a few years ago, I used to really, really overexercise. Now, when I'm superstressed, I compulsively exercise and get SO VERY SORE that I quit with working out and binge eat), my meditative mind WILL return and my center balanced.
So whether or not the scale reflects it on Tuesday, I'm on my path. I'm beginning to find my way. Food, if only for today, is not in control of me.
It's been nice talkin' to y'all. Hope we can do it again. Until then "ten mucho cuidado" means "take good care".
