I was working on my computer today, thinking about the fact that tomorrow is Sunday again. Sunday is the day I change my tracker -- and there is no way it's going to be less than it was last Sunday; and I just hate it when I have to raise it to a heavier number!
But then I happened to read one of the quotations on one of my teams. It said, "If at first you don't succeed --- you're about average." And I realize that my weight isn't going to go down each and every Sunday. Because I'm not perfect, and our bodies have a tendency to go up and down with our weight. It could be a pound or three pounds, but mostly it has to do with the amount of water you're drinking, or whether you've eaten something with too much sodium!
I was just tired out today, so I rested. Sure I could have pushed myself out the door and gone for a walk, and maybe I would have even enjoyed it. But on the other hand, maybe my body needed a bit of extra rest. I figure either way I handled it, it's a win-win situation. If I had taken a walk, the weather was nice, and I would have gotten my exercise in. But at the same time, by giving my body some extra rest -- I feel well rested tonight. So who knows?
"You are always their mother -- even when they grow up." Those words were never more true than this week-end. I get a call from my daughter and she tells me how they are moving, there is so much stuff to pack, etc. etc. I offered to come and help her -- and my offer was accepted faster than a New York Minute! So Tuesday after my doctor appt I'll drive to her house, which takes about 4-1/2 hours and I'll spend 3 or 4 days with her. Regardless of how old they get, it's always nice to have a bit of "private" time to spend with them, and it actually makes me thank God that we are close -- and she wants me in her life.
