Today. St. Patrick's Day 2013.
Sunday, March 17, 2013
I found myself making an unusually long reply in one of my teams this morning - so decided to copy it over here as a blog entry -
Today is my weigh-in day - I stepped on my scale here at home and it is apparent that little, if any, progress will be reflected on the scales at the WW center this morning - maybe even a small gain - tears welled up - I, too, worked hard all week, and made 1000 good choices in food & activity & other things related to my health. But my weigh-in is likely to be something not to brag about. I do so want my total weight to keep going down - but here I sit, tearfully, on a small plateau. I will make good choices today, and many good choices throughout the week, with maybe a not-so-good choice here & there - but I will have a good week. Just like last week was a good week. I know all of my hard work counts - but I need some more good results - I am going to Ireland for the first time in May (!!!) and I want to feel and move as good as I can - I will be walking a lot of backroads, as well as walking miles around the city of Dublin.
I do want to take a moment today to thank St. Patrick for driving all of the snakes out of Ireland - I got nothin' in particular against snakes, but it will make my walks a bit more pleasant, not having to worry about them :)
I feel pretty sad this morning, for some reason, and my mood was dampened a bit by the scale, but now I am off to dry the tears and move about in this brand new day. And make lots of good choices. Slainte!
