It's ok to be happy and proud of myself, yes?

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Not sure exactly why I have been a bit quirky.
I should ...

I don't know for sure how long this will last or how soon it will come again. I am actually below my goal weight. I feel kind of bad about it for some reason. I am naturally built small, small boned and have known that my body is meant to be smaller. I should naturally be able to maintain. I have always felt like others work harder than I do.

I guess I feel badly that I was not doing what I was supposed to do by logging my calories and watching more closely what I eat. It is confusing. I never really over ate or ate terribly.

I guess I am also ...

fearful in an odd sort of way. I feel like I would like to eat more and be less diligent about what I eat. Can I do that? I am not really hungry so why do I feel I want more?

Is it the ....

munching that I miss. Maybe. That is a danger zone.

AGAIN, I need to

and go with it. I need to simply stick with my routine.

And I need to allow myself to just ...

be happy.

I am ....

working hard AND smart I think and am....

making progress.

I was up at 4:45 today. I need to go into work early and did not want to oversleep. I do not use an alarm. I have Utah after all. I was dreaming about work/project management. Crazy.

emoticon I got in my 3 miles and here I am. It is 6:00 now so, breakfast time for the pups.

emoticon No word back on working from home more than just Fridays but I think I may start leaving early so I can be home before 6 and just get on-line again from home. We'll see. I left "early" yesterday and there was a less traffic and it was great to be home.

Sorry i am behind on blogs and have been in a bit of a funk.

HUGS to you.

Oh and to explain my weight comment yesterday. My man asks me how much I weigh sometimes and I NEVER tell him, not for a long time. So it just felt good to be able to say my weight. I suppose I should change my tracker and embrace the change. Maybe act as thought it is permanent and it will be?!?

emoticon emoticon For those of you who don't know me, I should add, it is not that I don't work. I get on the treadmill every morning for 2-4 miles. I am now doing my push ups every morning and something for my abs.

emoticon Also, reminder... I still need more toning. My reatr is still out of control. I was able to fit into my favorite suit nicely this morning but as I said, my rear could really use some work.

Keep on truickin' right?!?

emoticon Also, I left for the office at 6:50 and got here at 7:30. That is record time. Yes, I speed but traffic is a lot better. I guess this is an option too.

Have a great day!

    You absolutely should be proud of yourself and change your tracker! You do work hard and you deserve to see it on your page.

    We all have similar journeys to better health but each of us is different too. When I see into your life, I see someone that is very disciplined, focused and achieves goals. You get on your treadmill every morning and stay active on spark.

    I don't think it is about what we do or don't do but that we see the end results. Not sure if I am making any seems hard to explain. At any rate, celebrate your success! It might be easier to maintain the weight now that you think.

    I could never depend on my dogs for an alarm. They are all lazy in the morning. Piper won't get out of bed til my DH does no matter how late he sleeps.

    Congrats! You SHOULD be proud of yourself and you should be happy! It's so nice to be under that goal weight because then you don't have to stress about giving into the munchies every once in a while or occasionally going out to eat. You've got some leeway pounds to play with so you can relax! Yay! Love your photo to illustrate the munchies, BTW. emoticon

    Yes absolutely embrace the change!! You deserve it! It shouldn't matter that others may have to work harder than you. Your journey is personal to you and girl let me just tell you, I wish I didn't have to work as hard as everyone else to lose this crap hanging from my bones!! LOL Appreciate it and embrace it! I know I would! and will!

    Embrace the change. Think positive and don't waffle!
    Good luck on working from home! The only thing positive about sitting in traffic is it allows you time to think, "read" a book on CD or learn a language (what I did for a year).

    Great blog and loved the way you incorporated the visuals. It was helpful to me as I am up and getting ready to start my day. Do I work out or not? After reading the blog..Yes, I work out.
