A Pleasant Surprise.

Monday, February 11, 2013

Boy, do I ever fret on Sunday evening about my weekly weigh-in on Sunday morning. Last night I did some more exercising than I usually do, hoping it would reflect on the scales. Well, I'm happy to say it did. I lost 2.5 pounds. But I know it was a week long effort, not just last night.
However, pushing myself last night past my normal workout made me feel rather good. And my level of tiredness was pushed back and I actually really enjoyed getting to that 'sweaty' stage.
I also slept better last night. emoticon
Anticipating a poor showing on the scale this morning, I was planning on making my Blog Entry title... "Biggest Loser....NOT!!!"
However, that does not apply now, I am pleased to say. emoticon
Since Jan.1/13, I have lost 10 pounds. That was my goal for the end of Feb.
So, my conclusion is that I am doing what is right for me. Not a rigid schedule of eating and exercising, but just doing it each and everyday, regardless of what comes up to the best of my ability.
Just making sure my nutrition tracker is within calorie range and 10 plus min. minimum for my fitness.
Because I no longer work or have kids at home...I have more time to do the things I like. And being on SP is one of the things I like.
Not only am I getting healthier physically, but SP gives me the privilege of expressing myself, as I do in my blogs. And this venue is an outlet that helps emotionally as well.
All my thoughts and frustrations, etc. are not pent up inside. I know that even tho' I am not face to face with any of you dear Sparkers...that you do read and some of you understand some of what I am sharing.
I thank you for that....I thank you very much for that. emoticon

So here's to another week... emoticon of positive thoughts and happy results.
